“Takeaway for 2”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Rang up, told us 20 mins. 20 mins later we arrive only to realise they were completely full in the restaurant. It is only a small place, smelt great, people seemedhappy. There was no where to stand so felt like I was in everyones way. Which I was. We were kept waiting for another 10 mins.

They gave us extra free prawn crackers -yummy!
Dim sum was cold
Phad Thai tasted amazing but with the place being so busy they forgot to make mine spicy.

I will go again. Bear in mind on weekends the standard drops a little.

“Food lovely, service great, busy packed pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

went to nascot first time in years, food and restaurant was good, mostly the atmosphere of the place was the best, a full pub, lots of chatter and reminded me of an older age of jovial pub, all different ages, young eating before a night in the clubs, older out for a meal, or older still just for a drink in a communal place, really nice feeling, not too noisy to inhibit talking, but also noisy enough to be a people watcher and listener which is always fun. This place doesn't need to pretend to be a great place, it is.

“Worth a visit - but no jasmine tea!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Called in for weekday lunch with wife. Few tables taken but not overly busy. Standard menu selection reasonable. No "specials". We both stressed that we prefer our food "Thai spicey" and were not disappointed. Starters inc. Tom Yam soup were excellent. Mains of Pad Kaprow and Jungle Curry , both with chicken, were generous in quantity and also excellent and spicey. Only gripe - could not get a Jasmine Tea as all drinks were supplied by the pub bar and they did not offer this!! - that has cost them a "star". Reasonably priced.Would visit again

“Great food, attentive staff and good beers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We came here for Sunday lunch, looking for a change from our regular Thai/pub and were not disappointed. This is a smart pub on the corner of a small side street - not a lot of parking but enough for us to park quite close by. We walked through the bar and into a large restaurant behind - lots of tables with lots of room, and a clear view of the kitchen area (always a good sign!)
There were 5 draft beers on tap from different breweries, which was a good start.
The menu was surprisingly varied and long - we chose 3 starters which arrived after the spicy prawn crackers and were hot and freshly made. Our 3 mains were beautifully presented and rather on the large side - very tasty but they beat us all (just). We were offered a 'doggy bag' to take home any left overs but declined as we were visiting the area.
Staff were very attentive throughout the meal, including the bar staff who come and take drinks orders. The bill was very reasonable - 3 starters and 3 mains for under £40.....With such great food it looks like this may become our new regular whenever we're in the area!!!

“Wonferful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Amazing food very quick service and the truest definition of value for money. As good as and in most cases better than most Thai restaurants I have eaten in supported by a great pub and its drinks and bar staff.
