We had a lovely evening meal at the restaurant and certainly would return again when visiting N.Plymouth. We had the banquet as we were under the canopy. It was delicious. What I also liked was the seating. Sometimes in Asian restaurants you feel like you are so close to the next table. This wasn't the case here. There was no long waiting time to be served.

A good evening meal. Quick service and a good table.
Our guests asked us for a recommendation and our choice was very well received, The menu offered a good range of authentic Thai dishes and our guests enjoyed all selections. Service was efficient and the restaurant was quite busy.
There was not a great drinks selection to accompany our meal, though,

The food was authentic and it didn't take long to come out. We had really great service, even though the restaurant was completely full. There was a great atmosphere, it reminded us of restaurants we had been to previously in Thailand.
We were able to get a table at 8:30pm, with only a 5 minute wait.
glad we tried this Thai restaurant, all the food on the menu had their traditional names as well as a really original description. Will go again for sure.

They have the pretty standard Thai menu, of which we had some of the classics and they were all nice. They also have a range of more Chinese sounding plates which we haven't tried. Nice deco inside. On Mondays and Tuesdays the kitchen closes earlier so they want diners to be seated by 7.30pm or so.

Best Thai food in NP, period. Menu is complex as and will confuse you if you've never been there. Price is ok. Wait is a little long. Service can be disjointed. However food is great and always seems quite busy.
