Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stumbled across this takeaway after a day at the beach and were blown away by the food! We had a beef, pork + veg massaman curry, chicken pad Thai, samosas, tod min paa and Jasmin rice. All of it was delicious, the massaman Currys...especially are the best Thai Currys we've ever eaten. The prices are fantastic. The only thing that i would recommend is that you phone ahead as the wait is around 45min that are sooo busy. We can't wait to go back :)More

We’ve been driving past this place for ages and tonight we decided to get a takeaway for the family…..it was terrible! Just really cheap ingredients in ridiculously watery sauce on every dish. Would not recommend.

Amazing food and amazing value. We are on our last night in Newquay and had to try here again as we last ate here jn 2019. The food did not disappoint. Great quality and amazing value. This was the best value meal that we have...had during our week In Newquay. Service was quick and the food so tasty. We cannot recommend enough.More

We haven’t used this for a couple of months so decided to tonight. Sent my order before 5pm via text to collect around 7pm as we have always done. Only to find they don’t read text messages anymore. This took them 15mins to decide this....Then they asked us to tell them the numbers for the food and wouldn’t read the list (which we always send). This meant going to the back of a queue and waiting 45 mins for the food. Very disappointing service but can’t fault the food.More

Easy to park- Pulled over for a quick bite- wasn’t that busy ordered a beef massaman and pad Thai - stated would be 17 mins and was £15. All good. Came out piping hot, on time and tasty! Will recommend and use again!

This is the second time we have had food from here on our holiday to newquay, we also visited last year. The food is incredible and the spices/flavouring are spot on. We had the Thai green curry, sweet chilli chicken noodles, rice and peanut chicken....This was all cooked perfectly, fast collection and great portion sizes for the price.More

We’ve been meaning to try this place for years as we’ve only ever heard amazing things about the food. Having a Thai step mum who is an amazing cook I know what good Thai food tastes like and I can only say that the food...from here is up there with the best I’ve ever tasted. We love it so much we’ve been back every week for the last month and every time the food has been tasty, fresh and with friendly service. We can’t recommend it highly enough.More

I was looking forward to this given the good reviews. Had to wait 30 minutes for food even though I got there just after they opened. The prawns tasted sickly sweet but also bitter. Not good. Even though it was disappointing, I ate it as...I though it was edible. Later on, I felt ill and threw up. So now I question their hygiene and whether the food was fresh. The prawns were obviously gone off but served anyway. Disgusting rip off. The food inspectors need to revisit this trailer takeaway.More

The ladies here really know how to cook up a feast. I’ve eaten a lot of Thai food in my time, and the food here is sublime. The meat is always excellent quantity, and there’s plenty of it! They’re happy to moderate spiciness for you...which is impressive considering how busy they are, and with such a tiny kitchen. My favourites are the Yum Nua spicy beef salad and the duck red curry with pineapple and tomatoes. When I ever have friends stay, this a go to as I know they won’t disappoint. Excellent portion sizes to boot.More

This takeaway van is regularly recommended on the Newquay Facebook Page, this was our first try & I’m kicking myself for so many missed meals. The food is outrageously good, the portions huge & the prices really reasonable. You MUST make sure to phone your...order through at least an hour before you want to pick up as this place gets rammed & if you pop the car wash (the van is in the car park)into your Waze the van is easy to find. Don’t miss out on a truly memorable food experience next time you’re in Newquay .More

What a find!!! The most delicious food. We had Chicken green curry and a stir fry chicken dish. They were so tasty and beautifully spiced and seasoned. I didn’t want to stop eating even when I was full. DELICIOUS! Having not managed to get into...anywhere to ‘eat in’ in Newquay on a Friday night we gave up and stopped at this tiny van which is on the outskirts of town. Lovely ladies cooking lovely food. I’m glad we found it. Highly recommend!!More

Amazing food. Having previously lived in Thailand, I am super fussy when it comes to Thai food. This food is authentic and tasty! There was quite a long wait but to be honest it was well with the wait. If only we lived here, we...would visit all the time.More

Can’t rate them highly enough, food only took 30 minutes from ordering to pick up, and was piping hot when taken away, price is extremely good for the quality of food you get, everything we ordered was to perfection, will be back soon!
