“Extremely disappointing food and service”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Having visited before, we were happy to return and were looking forward to an authentic Thai meal. This time we were extremely disappointed. From the moment we ordered drinks, a beer for my husband and for me, being heavily pregnant and a diabetic, I was unable to order anything other than water, the waiter/owner was dismissive and rude. We didn't find the menu particularly inspiring but it had the classic dishes on there, although everything seemed a pound or two overpriced. The Tom Yum spicy prawn soup my husband ordered was bland, not spicy and small with few ingredients. Our thai curries were also extremely bland and surprisingly lukewarm. At no point during or after the meal did the waiter ask how the food was despite the restaurant being quiet. We sensed that he didn't care. Overall, a very lacklustre meal and terrible service. We definitely won't return.

“Beware of Set Menu pricing”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Food was ok but very expensive for what it was. Set menu pricing was deceiving and we felt that we were ripped off. Service was poor.

“Lovely food welcoming host”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We wanted an early meal as were getting the ferry and arrived just after they opened on Sunday evening so it was empty. The host made us very welcome and we had an excellent meal, the lamb marinated in 5 spice and mint was particularly good
. I can't comment on atmosphere as it was empty due to our early arrival but the decor was nice and very
clean throughout.

“The food was amazing. Top quality”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We had not tried this restaurant before and really enjoy Thai food so we're interested to visit. Friendly greeting and good table. Great choice of food (and I am vegetarian). The food did not take long and we both thought it was brilliant. Lovely tastes, and presented. The vegetables were crash, crunchy and tasty. Rice well cooked. Perfect. Then we both had to quality ice cream to finish. The whole meal was perfect. Only negative was the man who sorted out our bill. Basically just grunted, and didn't seem interested when I said how much we enjoyed the meal. I left a tip but hope it went to our waitress.
