14th February so very busy but no different to a Saturday night. Food was nice but the service was terrible. Ordered two glasses of wine but only one arrived after a considerable delay. Waited for over 15 minutes to see if anyone was going to ask us if we wanted desert so gave up and paid the bill instead.

Went for a Sunday afternoon lunch and wasn't disappointed. The food is quite good, I recommend vegetarian options since I am vegetarian. Good tempura and tofu curry. Courteous host!

I dined here on a Saturday night with my partner. We were promptly seated and poured iced water. Shorty afterwards the waitress took our order.

I have now eaten in this restaurant several times as a frequent visitor to York and have always loved the food, haven eaten many different dishes from the menu. The cuisine is authentic Thai and is always served with a smile from the genuinely friendly staff. If you like the food from Thailand then you will find no better in... More

Myself and my wife visited Fri 4 Feb 17, we had the platter to share which was average no different to the frozen selection you can buy in the supermarket. We had pad Thai which was discussing to much sauce and it was like slop on a plate. Won't be visiting again.

You cannot deny the friendly demeanour of the staff. However, this restaurant serves food so poorly executed, it is exceptional. Duck Masamann Curry had no true flavour notes. Pad Thai tasted of the same Sweet and Sour Sauce as many of the other dishes. An all round poor experience. Pretty awful! Be wary of ill informed reviews!

Even although the restaurant and toilets are tired and could do with refurbishment, food good, fresh and tasty.
