Restaurant was recommended by our host. And he was absolutely right! Food was extraordinarily and the service very friendly and obliging. If you like Thai food, definitely a good choice!

Maybe the best Thaifood I`ve ever had! The meals are fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly, fast and very competent, always asked if everything was ok. I am VEGAN and it was possible to get a vegan option of almost everything on the menu - even Pad Thai! Must go! :-)

We enjoyed a meal here. A very popular and busy restaurant with a great choice on the menu. At busy times you may need to book ahead.

Considering Thames is such a small town it was refreshing to find this Thai reputation which was recommended to us by a couple of the locals. We had lunch there and although the food was not the best Thai i had eaten it was very edible and the service was pleasant and speedy.

Good service but food not up to scratch. Had drunken noodles which was lots of very small bits of veg in a load of noodles. Also tom yum with ok sauce and veg and dreadful tofu.

Lovely staff. Great Food of a consistently good level Cheap and flavoursome Décor is lovely and place is spotless. Have also been here for dinner numerous time but the $10 lunch menu is a big drawcard.

The service was nice, but the food was gross. It makes McDonald's for seem quite fresh. My girlfriend and I both feel mehh now. We got takeaway, and the restaurant was quite busy so we thought it must be good - but it wasn't, even with its high TripAdvisor score. We wish we ate something else and saved our $40.... More
