Perhaps their usual staff were on holiday today, considering the raving reviews! All three of us were extremely disappointed. Waited 2 hours for main dish. Was given a dirty plate. My expensive "special" dish wasn't at all special (tasted too strongly of ginger and didn't...More

This is a lovely Thai restaurant. The team spend some time helping you to pick food that will best suite your palette and check again once the food gas arrived. This is all freshly cooled and it is delicious.

This is our all time favourite Thai. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is simply wonderful - also does a great G&T. Suits couples, families and is a great eat spot for friends to meet up and while away a couple of hours.
