Quite a new restaurant. Food was okay and reasonably priced, service was also okay but it lacked atmosphere and warmth.

The first visit here was disappointing. The refurbished room downstairs looked fantastic but there were not enough staff on and so we were kept waiting for drinks and service of the food was slow. Our starter order was wrong and one of our main dishes was chicken instead of lamb; another, a very expensive king prawn dish (£13.95) we had to take home with us in a plastic bag!! We had pre booked tickets for the opening night of the new Batman film and booked a table to allow 2 hours to eat. Disappointingly there was no discount given for this frankly dreadful experience. £90 for 3 people!! This included 3 starters, 4 main courses and 3 rice.Beers are small and expensive.
We went back for a second attempt, but had to sit upstairs. There were 4 of us this time. The lovely downstairs room is for private parties now. The room was empty, but was packed with tables and chairs. The food was good and the waitress charming. However, we had to ask for the music to be changed as it was not conducive to relaxation. Music and lighting are so important! We will give this restaurant one more visit, but they need to sort out some decent music, get some large beers on offer and maybe use the smaller downstairs room on quiet nights. It was not a happy experience sitting in a sea of tables on a Sunday evening!

Nice food, menu wasn't extensive but the food was lovely and catered to our taste when we asked for extra hot curry.

Nice restaurant area and good wine selection. Service was ok (very good when served by the Thai waitresses, not as good when not).

Would recommend for groups or couples.

Had lunch here on a Saturday. Best Pad Tai I have had in years, lots of flavour and off the lunch menu great value. The deep fried icecream was brilliant. Well worth a visit we will definately be back.

Ate here with a large group, most if us had a set menu. The vegetarian in our party was very well cared for. Classic mixed starter was fresh and delicious, delicious prawn parcels,chicken satay, thai fish cakes. Several mains provided including thai green curry. It has been open only a few weeks, we went early in the week so it was a bit quiet. Based on this experience, thai restaurants in nearby towns have some serious competition, I doubt it will be quiet for long. I'm looking forward to going back.
