“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Visited based on reviews. More like a cafe than a restaurant. Menu ok. Very poor cheap quality starters that were very greasy. Main courses were reasonable. Pad Thai was good. Service quite poor. Overall it was a disappointing experience and overpriced. Don't bother.

“Nice food let down by the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Went here with some work colleagues after work during the middle of the week. There were 9 of us in total. We arrived at 5.30pm so it was pretty quiet. Price of food and drink was reasonable and everyone enjoyed their meal.
The evening was let down by the service of 2 waiters. Communication was poor and body language negative, with the tone at which spoken to, being ignored or walking off when trying to talk. Some of this can be attributed to poor English however, it was the tone and the whole attitude particularly of one male waiter. No smile, no welcoming gestures.
I have been before for a lunch with a friend but at a diffent part of the restaurant as they bizarrely have three restaurants next to each other. I preferred the first nearest to Mornington Crescent station. But that was last December so maybe staff working at the time were nicer.

“Good business lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Surprisingly good. Though the menu and the environment is quite unpretentious, the food is mostly good and has almost a home-made feeling to it. Great option for business lunch.

“Going downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

I have had around four good meals here but tonight everything was dreadful (apart from the stir fried pork with basil). The food came out very very fast, which suggests they are not prepared to order and are cooked in advance. This place has expanded its space and appears to be more popular but in the process the quality of the food has deteriorated. As for the service, gosh, the waiter and waitress looked angry, did not welcome us or said anything when we left. The legendary Thai smile and good service was no where to be seen. The waitress tried to remove the plate of my companion before he had finished his meal. The only good thing about this place now is that the prices are good and the portions are large, but if you want good Thai food go elsewhere. This place is more suitable for takeaways.
