Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food has always been great here, staff just fun and always helpful. The menu has a good spread and everyone ate the dishes with no complaints Drinks were all good and tasty I dropped one star but that was just the cost of the drinks,...always find it annoying when a drink is £10More

30 for a cocktail that didn’t really taste like it had alcohol in it as a welcome drink wasn’t a great start. I had 3 starters. Som Tum was meant to be a shredded pounded salad and this was a favourite of mine when I...traveled. It wasn’t close to the authentic som tum or even vaguely similar. Less than half a bag of supermarket salad with a few slices of mango and no dressing was not worth &6.50. I wouldn’t have even classed it as a decent side salad. The rest of the food was ok but nothing was great. Tiki was overpriced and underwhelming…More

We booked a 2 course 5pm deal. Had 2 lovely cocktails to start before dinner. The Chef gave us an extra starter to try which was an added bonus. We also had unlimited prawn crackers. We both had thai red curry for main which was...absolutely delicious and a great portion! Rebecca our waitress was so friendly and helpful and made the whole experience even more enjoyable. We will definitely be back!More

After leaving a great night in bunker we decided to finish our night in here. We were greeted by a not so friendly bouncer saying we might not get seated together as there Not sure if he said this to put us off as when...we went in the place was dead with only a few people. Plenty of tables and chairs for us to sit together so sounds like he was being arsey with us. Had one drink as it was late and left. This is now the third time I’ve been here for drinks maybe I’m going to late or the wrong times, I won’t let this experience put me off as I will try again for food, it us a lovely place to go just not on this occasion.More

Fantastic place just off the main drag. Well worth a visit. Great value for money. We had the express lunch menu which is two courses for £10. Don't think it could be beaten for value for money and taste. It's not tiny portions of processed...food from overpriced city centre eateries as per the usual, it was great sized portions of home made, delicious food. We had the spring rolls, chicken satay and then a red and green thai curry. Along with lovely prawn crackers and dip. Definitely a place we will visit again. Staff were great too, really friendly and approachable. Quirky decor and design.More

The decor in the Tiki bar is fantastic! Very unique. The service was very good too. They have an extensive bar menu. Sadly, let down by their cocktails. They were very sweet, expensive and we couldn’t taste much alcohol in them at all. I got...a zombie. Now at a cost of £13 and a limit of 2 per customer, you’d expect them to be quite strong but I couldn’t even tell I’d had a drink afterwards. It just tasted of juice. After watching the lad make them, the cocktails are 25% liquid and 75% ice at best! Not worth the cost. Won’t be back.More

I booked a table here for a quiet Thai meal with my husband close to our hotel. I understood I had booked a table for two in the restaurant on the ground floor. On arrival, the manager (I use the term manager loosely) had assigned...us instead a table on the noisy bar part of the establishment, and four people clearly the worse for drink we’re playing table football really noisily right next to what would have been our table. WTAF? Unsurprisingly they lost our business. Turns out there’s a really good Thai restaurant right around the corner. I’d be amazed if they don’t loose a lot of customers this way. The „manager“ needs to engage her brain here.More

Believe it or not this was my first Thai meal and I am 61 years old (apart from a horrible curry from supermarket which made me think I did not like Thai food!). The meal was absolutely amazing. Me and my daughter shared the chicken...skewers, spring rolls and a green Thai curry. The chicken skewers were a bit too spicy for me but I have never tasted anything so amazing than the curry, it was so creamy and the rice was soooo good. I am lactose intolerant and have IBS but my stomach was totally fine as the ingredients are coconut based. I have defininitely been converted to Thai food now, thank you so much :-)More

First off the staff were friendly but clearly understaffed. There were only 8 people in the restaurant, which seemed low for a Saturday night, but it was a lovely setting and seemed to have good reviews. Drinks were served quickly, as were the complimentary crackers...but then we sat so long for our starters that these were replaced and we had to order a second round of drinks. When the starters did eventually arrive - my chicken satay was so over cooked I had to cut it off the skewers - a shame as the sauce with it was delicious. My husband said the soup was nice. Again, waited quite a while for main - I had the beef curry - again the sauce was delicious but the beef overcooked so I left that. I left most of my main and no questions were asked as to why. The waitress even mentioned how packed they were in the bar and I’m pretty sure they were trying to cope with both? She was very apologetic for the delays and after we had paid (bill was wrong as well but quickly changed) offered us a round of drinks - I’d much rather they had done that before we paid as we just wanted to leave. Such potential but we wouldn’t go back or recommend.More

We stopped by for beers at the new beer garden as it's nice and chill and they have a decent selection of beers. This is also a Thai restaurant so we ordered food after a few pints. The food is great though keep in mind...that the Pad Thai has a ton of fish sauce. The staff are friendly and the prices are decent so definitely a hidden gem.More

The bar is downstairs and its got loads of steps. I didn't see if there was a lift. I think the restuarant is upstairs best to phone.
