This place is exactly as many reviewers have described - small, cosy, excellent service, great food and offering tremendous value. The restaurant is owned by an English man and his Thai wife and is long established. Strongly recommended.

Unable to speak highly enough about this restaurant, service is second to none, food is beautifully flavoured and staff are friendly and welcoming. Without a doubt the best Thai restaurant I've ever eaten in, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Some of the best Thai food I’ve ever had. The open kitchen gives a nice authentic feel and allows the delicious smells of the cooking to fill the air. Great location over looking the marina with outside tables.

Went to this lovely place last night lovely venue. People who run the restaurant very busy hard working. The food another story out of this world. If you have never eaten Thai before go there because it’s a top place.

On a hot, hungry summer's night, a Thai sounded just great. We had an outdoor table overlooking the marina and a beautiful pink sky. The staff are attentive and friendly, the food was very tasty and was well enjoyed. The only negative I can really...More
