Four of us enjoyed a delicious meal here. We liked that the menu was limited which made it easy to choose from and was definitely quality over quantity. The owner and staff were so lovely and accommodating. We also saved money as the restaurant is not licensed but you can take your own alcoholic drinks.

Would not make a specific journey but it's ok. No license so bring your own booze. Thai chap whizzes around while several teenagers stand around looking useless. That is a bit unfair but nice cheap grub. Go.

Stopped here after a late return on jacobite train with nowhere booked and a lot of places very full. This was perfect as quick thai meal, delicious and good size portions. Staff were friendly and service good. Starter menu small but good to sharea couple of things. Red thai curry was delicious.

Third year running we have eaten here on our overnight stop in Fort William. Thai Red Curry was awesome and the service was courteous and prompt. Starters and mains very reasonably priced with excellent service by the staff. We were on holiday so there is no need to rush and I honestly don't understand some of the earlier comments here....

Booked in this restaurant last Saturday evening. Staff seemed a little stressed, think they were understaffed which resulted in quite a lengthy delay for food. Food was really enjoyable and perfectly spiced (try the Pad Kapow if you like a good kick). The restaurant is BYOB.

Had two dishes: stir fry with cashew nuts & mixed vegetables, and thai sweet and sour. The sweet and sour sauce was nice, but the veggies were too raw, not really fried. The other dish was mediocre, the sauce was not that great but the veggies were okay.

We go to eat at our local Thai restaurant (Poonthais In North Berwick) most weeks and love their food so - based on reviews - decided to try here when in Fort William. Staff were certainly pleasant enough and nice enough interior. However although relatively inexpensive food was hugely disappointing. Prawn crackers 'bought in' and slightly soft, bowl of curry...

Very friendly and welcoming. They even let us try a sauce for a curry we were unsure about. Our meal was delicious, the chicken delicious.

Thank TreborLo
