This doesn't look like it should be nice at all, stuck in a parade of shops in the middle of a bleak part of the A6. But it is really pleasant.
The menu is comprehensive and offers a good variety of curries, noodle and rice dishes. They are well spiced and taste like the real thing - the red and Jungle curries are particularly good. The starters are also really nice, particularly the sweet corn cakes. An odd feature is the live streaming of action from the kitchen, which means in a weird way you actually watch your dinner being prepared. And there is a DVD always playing with traditional Thai dancing that does begin to grate after half an hour. It also often seems pretty empty, though I've never been on a Friday or Saturday night - great for prompt service, but slightly lacking atmosphere.
It does seem quite pricey for the area, though, with starters averaging £5 - £7 and mains at £8 - £10. By no means exorbitant, but comparable with Manchester. Perhaps it's the cost of all that technology?
For all that, though, we've eaten here a few times and had a couple of take-aways and the food has always been excellent and the staff very courteous and efficient.
