Monday night dinner. Arrived just after 7pm and only one table taken. My starter of large green lipped mussels in lemon grass broth was wonderful. Followed that with beef green curry, which was so tender, and sticky rice. Very enjoyable.

Not the cheapest restaurant about, but quality and service very good, and would definitely come back.

Reasonably authentic Thai food. The Pad Thai is particularly good. Attentive helpful staff. Will certainly return next time in Shanklin.

The food is excellent as is the service received. We visited on a Friday night and did not book, but they accommodated us no problem. We had a couple of mains plus rice and drinks and a starter and this came to the mid £30 mark. Not bad value for the quality.

Doesn't look much from outside but food was lovely and staff very helpful about choices. It was our first time in Thai restaurant so unsure of level of heat. Mild chicken massam curry delicious.

Delicious food with subtle flavours combine with charming service from all staff.
Plus the décor and furnishings, a mixture of all sorts of oriental bric-a-brac, some genuinely antique plus the location within one of the many charming old English, thatched cottagey buildings which comprise Shanklin Old Village make for something quite special.
I'll go again as soon as I can !
