Excellent Thai restaurant with unusual menu offering different dishes to other Thais we had visited. Good sized portions friendly service. Well worth a visit.

We booked a table here for a Saturday night at 8 pm after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and we were so glad we did. We traveled quite a distance and turned up slightly early, we were greeted by super friendly staff and...seated straight away and almost immediately had a drink which I personally think is great customer service. I really don’t mind waiting for food if you have a drink, however we had no wait at all even though it was quite busy. Our orders were taken and we had crackers and our starters in good time. I had tom kha soup with chicken which was delicious and my wife had spare ribs which again were delicious and huge. Mains were red curry with belly pork for me and beef massaman curry for my wife. Both dishes were absolutely beautiful as was the rice. We also ordered a pad thai to share and again it was delicious. The portions were good size too and we couldn’t finish all the food we ordered. All the waiting staff were exceptionally polite and very pleasant as well as really efficient. I would most definitely recommend this great little restaurant and we will definitely be returning many times I’m sure.More

Wow! This restaurant is amazing, each dish is spectacular with fresh ingredients, tasty, and hot. Service is good, the place has atmosphere, it’s busy and deserves to be.

Great food, I had scallops to start and the pork belly pad prik Thai dum, it was very tasty and fresh! The staff were intentive and looked after us well, there was a group of us from work and the dishes came out in good...time and noone was kept waiting, I would definitely go there again to try more of the menu!More

Visited as a group of four and had a table booked for 8pm on a Saturday night. It was 30 minutes before we even had our drink order taken, other diners came in after us and were waited on before us, so I think it...just needs someone front of house to direct the young staff. That is my only negative point. The food really was delicious and reasonably priced, not large portions and a nice coffee afterwards. The place was loud and lively.More
