Visited this a few weeks ago on recommendation of one of my colleagues staying in Wakefield on business. What can I say - made very welcome when we first ascended the stairs to this great hidden gem in the centre of Wakefield. Wakefield was damp,cold and quiet. The restaurant was warm, welcoming and quiet (It was after 8pm on a... More

We've been coming here since it opened but over the last couple of years the food quality had dropped a bit. The restaurant is now under new ownership, although I believe one of the previous owners is still working in the kitchen. The food was back to its best and at last a new wine menu with better choice. Looking... More

Came last nigh (10/11) for a meal and a catch up with 3 friends. We were quickly and politely shown to our table and informed of the specials that they had available that night. The menu was extensive but not over bearing, with a good choice of set menus too. The food was fresh, tasty and authentice whilst our waitress... More

Another lovely visit. Delicious food. Friendly but unassuming staff. Reasonable price. Yes decor is a bit basic and the location not the best but don't let that put you off. Yum!

what do they say about judging a book by its cover? Reasonable service, a little basic decor, certainly nothing to remind me of visits to Thailand or Magrethea, but the food quality was pretty good, and cooked by Thai people (which is usually a good start). The right amount of spice heat in both my Toh Kha Gai, and red... More

Great service and great food, would be nice if they had a English and Thai menu as some of the options were tailored for western tastebuds. Only downside was that Mango Sticky rice wasn't on the desert menu!

On arrival the heat was stifling + we nearly left. Thankfully they put the AC on. Reasonable priced drinks. Lots of food on menu. Great service. Wanted a dish minus egg with added mushrooms but was told to try as per menu as it wouldn't taste right. He was definitely the expert + it was yummy!!!

Great Restaurant but can be very busy so book in advance or arrive early. This was my first experience of Thai food and I have been back several times with my wife and children and have enjoyed every visit, the place can get very busy and the waiting times for a table even when booked can be quite long but...

Visited as a party of 6 with family having been a few times before, have never been disappointed by this place! The service is always excellent and friendly, the food is absolutely amazing. I had the Taramind duck which was delicious, we also ordered a mixture of vegetarian and meat main courses - there was no left overs! Always very... More

As someone who isn't a fan of Thai food especially the concensus was that this was the restaurant that my friends and I would visit as our bi yearly get together. I was a little hesitant as I had been before and not really enjoyed it ( just because of my aversion to Thai food l, not because of anything... More
