Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we dined here on Saturday evening and are delighted to say, everything was as mentioned in the previous positive reviews. A warm welcome, attentive and friendly service, freshly cooked and flavoursome food. A very relaxed, unhurried and enjoyable dining experience. We will be back again.

The best place for Thai food in Essex ! Great service, they even know what my hubby wants to eat before he orders it now ! Great as my daughter can't eat certain foods, and as everything is made to order this is possible. We had 3 starters , 3 main courses with rice , and a dessert to share.... More

This is by far the best Thai restaurant in the area; the food is delicious and the service exemplary. If you are in or around Harwich, do yourself a favour and get down... More

Had a fantastic evening for a family members birthday. The food is absolutely phenomenal but the service... even better if that is possible. So friendly and feels like you are coming to a friends for dinner... not a restaurant. Never change guys, we will come here for years to come. 5*!!!!

Came here from Colchester due to fantastic TripAdvisor reviews and were absolutely not disappointed. Very welcoming staff, also very knowledgable to my shellfish allergy and which dishes contained shellfish. I had the fishcakes to start which were divine, the other half had delicious breaded chicken bites which weren't greasy in the slightest and perfectly cooked. We both had a curry... More
