Place was recommended but the quality of the food was so underwhelming and other much better thai restaurants in the area. Very disappointed and will never return. It's a shame that there are so few good quality restaurant in the area.

All as expected, enjoyable meal. Booked in advance but unsure if that was really necessary as the place wasn't full.
