21 of us were booked, 25 turned up, all were catered for with a very tasty and very reasonable Thai buffet. A great night and a very obliging host. Thoroughly recommend a visit. It's worth booking first.

Thank you Tony for taking the trouble to write. As you say, our meals are cooked to order so there can be a bit of a wait sometimes and I appreciate your patience. Look forward to seeing you again when you are in the area.

Glad you enjoyed your meal and visit in general, really appreciate you saying so. Pity you couldn't stay for the quiz but quite understand. Maybe next time stay the night; we will do you a discounted rate if you are eating with us and quizzing.
