My colleague and I had such a delicious meal tonight. We didn’t have a booking but we were very kindly and warmly accommodated. Friendly service, lovely setting and honestly the bed Pad Thai I’ve ever had! Couldn’t recommend more. Thank you.

Had an excellent meal last night for our son's birthday. Great Thai food and service. Restaurant was full which is a testimony to it's popularity and quality. Andy the host is a great host and made all feel very welcome. It was our first visit...but was well worth the journey.More

The atmosphere is lovely & Andy is a charming host, but the food was quite possibly the worst i have ever been served up, it tasted like a student stir-fry.. What a shame, i think you need a trip to Thailand to find out how...it should be done..More

Extremely friendly and helpful service; and great, authentic Thai food cooked by a Thai. The food can be spicy but still flavoursome.

I don't think the restaurant has a car park, but there are lots of places to park nearby. Go - you will not be disappointed, just wish we lived nearer!
