The was a group of 5 of us for lunch and we had reservations, which I would highly recommend as the place is quite busy. While not as spicy as food in Thailand (we lived there for several years), it was excellent. Very nice presentation as well. I ordered side Prik Nam Pla to spice up my food and it... More

Been to this Thai on a couple of occasions, this time had we had poor service. The manager made no eye contact with anyone. The crispy pork the wife had was no way crispy and my Pad Thai was bland. But on a positive note the steamed dumplings starters were great.

Met up with a friend for lunch and was happy to return as I really enjoyed my last visit. Went for the lunchtime offer or 2 courses for £13. The chicken spring roll starter only came with 2 rolls and I initially thought they had brought me vegtable rolls instead as the chicken was so sparse. 3 tiny pieces in... More

Our first visit here.Food was lovely, well presented and served promptly. The service was very good and friendly. We had chicken and seafood and a big portion of fried rice. It's a good value for a nice meal with delicious flavors. We are a couple from Germany and we would definitely go back at our next visit to Birmingham.
