Probably the best Thai place we had visited! Absolutely nothing to complain about! We shared a Thai red curry and it was beautiful. Would recommend and definitely return!

Had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant and I am so glad I did.

Having spent a lifetime ordering chicken dishes only not to eat the chicken because of the... More

I have visited this restaurant on few occasions as I live nearby. Great little Thai restaurant with really tasty and authentic Thai food. The Early Bird Menu is great value but a la carte can be quite expensive. Highly recommend the Black Pepper Squid, the Pad Thai and the Red Curry really delicious! They also make really good cocktails. Worth... More

We went on a Saturday night and the service was awful we had to ask for drinks and then to order after waiting over 20min. I have to say though the food was amazing and I finished my meal with a Calypso which had a very generous amount of tia Maria in it 😊
