Found this restaurant via hungryhouse and although online takeaway is always a hit and miss kind of thing, this was sadly a definite miss. Taking a little less than an hour from placing the order to receiving it the food was somewhat warm when arriving....More

I have had good and bad experiences here. The food is nice. Once I ordered a Thai red curry and I think they muddled up my order with curry but then added food colouring or something, just didn't look right. Starters are good. Reasonable price

The food I received was extremely poor. The chicken was inedible due to the sheer amount of fat. The rice had been reheated in a microwave. I went back to politely ask for a refund. All I got in response was to be sworn at...More

Awful service, 2 1/5 hours after order arrived cold. When called no response and eventually collected after a further hour. Tried to get out of refunding order and when called staff were rude and argumentative. Refund eventually took 7 days to reach me.
