Friendly, patient and helpful staff greeted us for our first visit. A varied far-east cuisine, all freshly prepared, served promptly when cooked - no leaving it to get cold until all other items ready, this approach was entirely suitable for this cuisine. All of us enjoyed every dish. Will definitely go again. Despite being crowded, with several large groups, the... More

Not only did they charge 5 pound extra per person. Food was below standard and portions noticeably smaller. Being valentines day would have expected more.our waitress blonde was great as usual and made the evening much more bearable we were hurried out for next sitting so we ordered 4 liqueur coffees and enjoyed the last few seconds..

As the last bad review was only 4 days ago, i.e. current, I went expecting to be disappointed, nothing could be further from reality as the place was warm, the staff very welcoming and helpful and the food excellent. We were four in the party and we ordered a variety of "starters" at least 8 of them, mostly Thai but... More

Visited early afternoon when it is not so busy as after 1800hrs it is very busy! Not really friendly welcome when we arrived for our booked table. Enjoyed the starters and the duck and pancakes. Only criticism is the menus are really sticky and there was a hair in the dessert which needed cooking a little longer as the tempura... More

My family have been celebrating family birthdays here for years, last night was just awful! There were 9 of us, on booking were advised to arrive at 8.30 as we were a large party, upon arrival we were told we would not be seated until 9, we had to stand in the foyer for half and hour. Once seated the... More

Basically if you're disabled or vegetarian or even expect decent customer service then do not go here. Waitress treated my disabled friend as if she had a contagious disease and there are pretty much no vegetarian or vegan options. Refused extra hoisin sauce (even though it's an all you can eat restaurant) and the waitress was weirdly over protective about... More

We've been past many times but never tried this restaurant until tonight, our waitress Gemma was fantastic and very helpful and very sweet. I'm vegetarian and my partner is not, she explained fully how you ordered from the menu and told us we could ask for a smaller or larger portion as required. All the food that came was superb...

Food was terrible. Chicken rubbery & watery, absolutely no flavour & spongey texture. Lack of popular authentic Thai dishes on the menu. Food not fresh, in fact the worst Thai meal I've ever eaten. Prices reasonable but it's an 'all you can eat'. Service was okay. Won't return though, continue up the road to Brighton, there are so many better... More

The Thai elephant has gone rapidly down hill. The food is bland. The staff don't know how to crack a smile and the management are only interested in lining their pockets. Our intention was to feed the kids before our visit because my son is huge for his age- height wise, not front to back!- and the Thai elephant have... More

We ate here last night to celebrate New Years Eve with family. The service was excellent. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The service was impeccable. The food was piping hot and really tasty. Such good value for money.
