“Something Rare and Needed - A Truly Wonderful Little Restaurant - Dorchester's Best Kept Secret!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

This is where to go for a very special food experience - forget big trips to find amazing Restaurants - what we have in the midst of Dorchester is something we found quite unique these days: superb food, freshly prepared and cooked perfectly with attention to detail and very obvious care resulting in a memorable delicious meal. The service is superior to any top grade Restaurant we have visited. The price is the surprise: it's so reasonable it would be easy to think a mistake had been made. Three lunch time courses of exquisite fare for £10.

This place is never crowded or noisy - peaceful, relaxing and an amazing space to just chill and sample something rare and so worth a visit.

We decided to support the independent restaurants in dorchester which have been overshadowed by the large chain restaurants at the Brewery up the road. the food was delicious, fresh adn hot and served efficiently and politely. A delicious meal at a reasonable cost

“Excellent food, first class service”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

It is rare that you find a lovely clean and tidy restaurant which serves food made with locally sourced meat and vegetables, this one is fantastic. I have been in there to take advatage of their lunch special (3 courses for £10) many times now and have tried almost everything on the menu, can't think of anything bad to say about anything I've had! Great place for a families or couples.

“Good price for what you get”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I was surprised this restaurant gets such good reviews; for us it was correct, food was OK but not above average for Thai restaurants (in my humble opinion). You can get a starter, a main and a dessert for £10 which is pretty good though, and the staff is efficient and attentive.
