Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent food well presented, excellent service and a really lovely ambience even though we were the only two there. They also allowed our dog to accompany us - made the evening as few restaurants allow dogs. Our host Robert was very helpful. Best Thai meal...ever !More

We have had two meals here during a recent stay in Dulverton - both the Thai and East/West menus are varied and great value. Highly recommend the lamb massaman curry, and dolmades from the lunch menu. Robert, the owner, is always very friendly and helpful

Bad Experience We ordered TONGDAM’S PLATTER (for two) "A selection of : Satay Kai, Poh Pia Thod, Thodmun Pla, Goong Hom Pha and Thung Thong, accompanied by our sweet chili and peanut sauces." "It tasted to me as though it was pre made by a...catering company (meaning it didn't taste freshly made in their kitchen) - when we asked we were told it was all freshly made here !! It certainly tasted to me like it was bought in - the packet opened then put in a fryer/microwave!! It was dissappointing and tastless to us. Tesco/M&S do better. Mains - Phad Thai Noodles - chicken - fried rice - Ped Lao Dang - Duck in thai herbs and spices ect ect - The duck was grey in colour and certainly didn't look or taste to us fresh!! The Phad Thai was inedible infact we thought it was horrendous!. It had a strange egg net laid over it, like a soggy web!! Lastly the fried rice we ordered was not fried rice it was boiled - by that stage who cares!!! We ordered a bottle of wine which was fine. We asked the waiter again if the food was all freshly cooked here and he told us it was - Amazing there are over 200 meals offered on the menu - some kitchen!! We paid and left never to return!! To my surprise I got a call out of the blue from the owner two days later. (I am not convinced that he was entitled under GDPR to use the number recorded for us on the reservation for purposes other than reservations but that is a different matter) I was at work with customers waiting to be served. I immediately felt as though I was being told off and spent as long as I could explaining myself and trying to justify my opinions only to be told I was wrong. As he would not listen to what I had to say I eventually had to say I was going and put the phone down. I run a number of small businesses and to me complaints are a gift not something to try to talk your way out of. The upshot is that if the food was freshly made and freshly cooked that day, it did not taste like it to me and I did not enjoy it. I have spent a lot of time in Thailand and eaten at great Thai restaurants so am not unfamilar with Thai food. I believe I did the right thing by telling the waiter, when asked, my honest opinion and paying my bill in full to prove that I was not just after a discount.More

An intimate little restaurant, tucked away in a courtyard off of the High Street in Dulverton. The menu is very large and caters for all tastes. We are vegetarian, but there is also a separate vegan menu too, which is what we chose from. The...food is out of this world! We had three courses and each was full of incredible flavours and served hot! The serving staff were intelligent and very friendly and helpful and we had a great meal. Booking seems to be essential, as it got quite full during the evening. Take-away business was brisk too, but despite this, we weren't left waiting for extremely long breaks between courses. VERY highly recommended and we will certainly go back again!More

Delicious food, wide variety of choices, we loved every course and it was all very good value for money. We visited as a couple while on a short stay in Dulverton, which is a very pleasant little stopover. This restaurant was a surprising but very...welcome discovery, tucked away off the Main Street but with oodles of character. The menu is mouth watering and the dishes met their expectation, and some. Fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented, this was an experience, not just a meal. The restaurant team were friendly and attentive. We particularly liked the way that their story was written into the pages of the menu. The location has an authentic and special atmosphere, not very big but fresh and classy. I really recommend this restaurant.More

Amazing! 5 pieces each served with satay and sweet chilli sauces.

We were made to feel welcome the minute that we walked through the door. The waitress was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We ordered all 3 courses and could not fault anything. The food was fragrant, fresh and beautifully presented and the...meat was so tender that it simply melted in the mouth. While we were there a couple came in to enquire about a takeaway and the chef came out of the kitchen to help due to allergies.
