One of the best value restaurants in Slough, for my mind this is my "go-to" place when I want something hot and tasty. My youngest daughter and I go here whenever she's in town.

The staff are great people, very friendly who are completely open to making your food the way you want it - any of the dishes can be turned up or down in spice level, certain ingredients cut out or whatever you want. As a newly diagnosed diabetic, they know to not add any sugar to my dishes, something no other place I can think of will do.

Other people here seem to have had problems with the staff - every time I've been (and I've been a lot over the past eleven years) being friendly to them has rewarded me with excellent attention but also time and privacy enough to enjoy the food; something they do strive for.

Every dish I've tried has been an excellent man-sized portion, good and hot, and as tasty as you could possibly want. My favourite is the chicken with Thai basil and chili; the lady owner imports the basil directly from Thailand and it really shows, the taste is exceptional.

The mixed starters are varied and every one is delicious, and the newly-expanded dessert menu is very welcome - although the banana fritters with ice cream are still my daughter's favourite!

At £6.55 for two courses, this really is an absolute bargain. Go in, admire the beautiful decor and the amazing tables, and get some great food.

As soon as I enter, the waitres ran from the kitchen dumped me with 2 course menu n she wants not to look at the a la carte menu.. I placed th order fr a starter n I want some time to select th main course but she looked at so badly as if I cam to her house door begged. She is busy watching some sports channel . I placed a main course n I also told her remove the ice cubes from the coke already placed in th table ... She started yellin at me saying "should I place th order or remove th ice first ... I was shocked ... That was one humble service ...hell

We have been going to this place for years and love it. The food us great with a wide variety and their lunch time menu is a barging not to be missed! Yes at times the service can be a little slow or haphazard, but it doesn't take away from the quality and value you get here. It's a fairly basic Thai resturant without many frills but would recommend to anyone. Go, you will have a great meal.
