Location and contact

The restaurant is founded in 2011. It is new to this town but Thai restaurants are not new to our experiences. We are a group of people who are passionate about food and have an overwhelming desire to create our own family restaurant where we can cook a good quality of food in a good atmosphere. We started our dream by renting a restaurant in Shipley, and then stepped forward to found our own restaurant in Skipton, the small historic market town in North Yorkshire with beautiful scenery, this makes it a perfect place for us.---Our Promises--- We promise to prepare and cook every dish with pride, using the finest ingredients and vegetables sourced locally, to create not only delicious but also

Been going here for a few years now and never had a bad meal. Food is consistently good and cooked from fresh While the room can sometimes lack a bit of atmosphere if you like nice Thai food at a reasonable price would highly recommend

The food is absolutely lovely.you can tell it's freshly made and the dishes are bursting with flavour. The only down fall is the potion sizes, for the price they are a bit poor but all in all definitely can't fault the food and presentaion. Very...More

A great selection of really tasty, beautifully presented Thai food. Lovely atmosphere. Advise you book, as it is a busy restaurant. Made to feel really welcome.

Quite a pleasing, almost intimate environment, well decorated and clean - probably only seating a maximum of 20 or so. We were served by a very pleasant and competent young English girl. The Management and Kitchen Staff were Thai. Drinks and crackers arrived soon enough...More

Located in a wonderful old terraced property on Cavendish Street in Skipton, this is like having fantastic food from the Orient in your own home. The food is excellent, very good value and the staff imbue the wonderful gentleness and attention of the Thai people.

Although it does feel like you're sitting in someone's front room, the food is lovely and reasonably priced. The service at times leaves a little to be desired in terms of politeness, not speed, but overall it's a definite recommendation! The takeaway option is also...More
