I didn't hear any music while we were there, but we were with friends and it was very buzzy and very full of people.

Not sure what the menu is, worth checking the website. I know the chef spent time in Thailand so the curries are great. It's about a 10min walk from Brook street, just off duke street, opposite the fleece pub
