We have been to this restaurant 5 times now and enjoyed every visit. We have always gone mid-week and the place has been fairly busy but not rammed. The staff were always very polite and friendly, seated us straight away and took a drinks order immediately.

Every dish we have tried we have liked, with the Massaman (a mild peanut curry with coconut milk) and the kang dang (red Thai curry) being our favourites. Always with the delicious coconut rice, yum! How one of the reviewers on here can claim that the food was bland I have no idea?

We have never tried the set menu so can't comment on that. My boyfriend had the kang pha ((jungle curry) on one visit and found it very tasty but VERY hot (which it does state on the menu!) so maybe one to avoid if you're not used to or don't like spicy food.

The prices are not bad either, comparable to regular pub grub or curry house's with mains between £9 - £12.

All in all I would definitely be happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I will be going back myself soon.

Absolutely brilliant! The food is freshly cooked and the presentation is of a very high standard. The service is excellent too!

Good quality food served and cooked by Thai Staff. Always welcoming and polite. Been here many times as it is our local Thai restaurant. Prices are very fair for the standard and good value for money. A decent wine selection again fair priced. Would recommend without doubt. Can get busy so best to book in advance.

We live local and have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions... The food is always lovely and very consistant, always served on warm plates & piping hot ( a must have for me ).. service always very good with polite helpful staff. This restaurant is always busy lunchtimes and evenings so well worth a try...

Visited on a Friday evening and the downstairs of this restaurant was full, however we were shown to a table and very well looked after - indeed maybe a little too much! As is custom in many Asian restaurants, the service was a little too quick, even after asking for a break, but better to be like this than waiting forever for service.

A very nice wine list was presented and also the food menu is good. The crackers to start with as an appetiser are just the best ever! I had a chicken dish to start, which was average rather than outstanding, however my wife had fish soup which was superb.

For main we had Thai Green Curry (very good) and also a fish/coconut dish (also very good) served beautifully in a silver fish shaped bowl with lovely carrot sculptures. Coconut rice was fluffy and plentiful, however the noodles were a little expensive. All in all though, you can tell that this food is home made and lovingly prepared.

The staff are lovely and will make you feel very welcome as aforementioned. I will certainly be visiting again.
