Have visited twice now both with family and friends, and both times the food has been excellent. I can certainly recommend the scallops and the sea bass. Will definitely be going back again.

i have eaten at all the eateries in the village now, the food here was OK as previously stated, but I@m unsure why people would want to eat in a thai restaurant where you can quite clearly here the regulars in the bar discussing there daily exploits, which got louder by the minute.
Like I say food Ok, experience not quite right
Sorry not for me

After having several take aways which were very nice we thought we would try the restaurant and we were just as delighted with the food. We have tried quite a few Thai restaurants but this is by far the best one for quality and taste. The food is fresh and tasty and nicely presented. The waitress was very nice and friendly too. It was early Tuesday evening when we visited and we were the only ones in there and they have tried very hard with the decor to make it look quite authentic but my only criticism is that it needs a little more ambience, maybe a few roaring logs on the fire would have helped to make it abit cosier, but it's the food that counts and we will certainly continue to have our take aways and maybe visit on a Friday or Saturday when it is busier. Well done to the chef who definitely knows how to cook Thai food!!

This is a new Thai restaurant in an unexpected location in an old pub in the middle of Willington. The pub was formerly run down and the least attractive of Willington's pubs, but has been rejuvenated by the conversion of the saloon bar into this attractive little restaurant. The food is simple but well prepared by the Thai chef, and authentically spicy. The menu is limited compared with larger restaurants, but probably the better for it. The Green Curry is the best I have had anywhere, and the Penang Curry similarly excellent.
