We are a family run Thai restaurant situated in Moulsham St, Chelmsford and have combined a 17th century English cottage with authentic Thai architecture. This together with the extensive use of carved woodwork, authentic Thai materials and Thai craftsmanship has created a Thai style house with character and ambiance. Thai food consists of spicy, mild, sweet, dishes. We also cater for vegetarians. Everything is prepared for you fresh from the time you order, if you would like any help selecting your dishes please ask out staff. We have both an in-house menu and a take-away menu.
