Came here for dinner with my friends. The staff was very polite and efficient. Food was really good but maybe slightly overpriced!

First time visit to this restaurant and I can say not very impressed service was slow tried to attract waiting staff to reorder drinks portions of rice small I had a prawn Thai green curry and it was more like a soup with very few prawns in it and the rest of the party unimpressed I can not see me...

Came here in a Saturday night and it's a good job we booked for our group of 5 because they were having to turn people away. The food was absolutely delicious and my only negative was that the service was a bit slow but this may we'll be because of how busy they were. I will definitely be coming back!

Came for lunch and their cooking is very delicious. However the portion of rice is too small, and still have lots of curries left with no rice.

Thank you for your review. As I have pointed out in response to previous reviews our lunch menu is designed for those who want a quick lunch at a reasonable price (£9.95 for 2 courses). Those who have more hearty appetites can always order from the a la carte menu where the portions are larger. More

I visited with family and friends for a pre-Haymarket theatre meal and had the early bird menu. The food portions were large, quality as always was great and service very friendly and efficient. I've been here a few times and would recommend it very highly, for both food and service

Good portions, mild but good food. I had the spring rolls and cashew nut chicken with rice. Not too spicy and enough for one.

Thank you for your review. You say the food was "mild but good". The dishes you chose are not that spicy. There are plenty of spicy dishes to choose from for those who like it hot. More

I visited this restaurant on my lunch break in November 2016 because I really felt like having some Thai food and since I'm a huge fan of the Green Curry. The lunch time of a 2-coruse meal for under £10 was also very appealing to me. The restaurant is very small and got filled up by 12.30. I was lucky... More

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry you had to wait for your main course to arrive. As for the rice portion, I would point out that this was included in the price of your set lunch. So I don't think it is fair to compare it with portion size in other Thai restaurants where you would pay... More

Went for lunch. Not too many choice, however their food is very nice. Curries, and satay just delicious. Worth going back again. Just that rice is a little tiny portion, hopefully they would make it a full bowl in future. Lovely waitress, and helpful.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the food. The lunch menu has 9 starters and 15 mains. It is designed for those who want a quick lunch at a reasonable price.
