“Great local Thai”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We love the Thai in this restaurant. Its a bit noises, but a great festive dining experience. Hot pots are particularly good. Order mild if you don't like spicy food. Some dishes are quite warm!

“Have had better sums it up.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Went here for dinner tonight. Had Penang lamb curry, chicken cashew and pad Thai prawn. Pad Thai very disappointing, not nice flavour and noodles a bit rubbery. Curry was ok but not great. Chicken cashew was the best dish we had, the taste was nice.

“Have had better”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

We eat a lot of Thai food and there are better places. The environment is noisy, making it hard to have conversation. The food was nothing special, the Green Curry was far to hot making it un-edible for some in the group. Other food was bland and the dishes the curries are served in are impractical for serving out of as they sit high on the table over a burner.

“Has this restaurant changed hands?”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Always loved this place until tonight's experience. Food seemed like mediocre Chinese not Thai. Very salty and uninspired mains from the specials board. I hope it is just an aberration and not an indication that this restaurant has changed hands. We felt so lucky having this restaurant nearby!

“The real deal”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

We love Thai food. Thankfully this is now our local. Quite a large restaurant but in no way commercial. Clever ideas abound... Old tin teapots for table water anyone? All your thai faves done well and the service is delightful. Try it, soon.
