“Welcoming, unfussy, delicious: every town should have one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

In Andover for work and found this gem of a place - thanks, Tripadvisor! Easily overlooked in its car-park location, but well worth seeking out. The sort of restaurant that everyone would like to have nearby: friendly, great food, some novel and fun touches, nice people and reasonable prices. Every town should have one!

“Meh!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Located in a quirky building the food has little to add to that initial charm. It is the same tired menu as most Thai restaurants and the standard of food does not set it apart

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Usually I don't like Thai restaurants as i find the food either extreme tasteless or extreme hot. However this place- easily to be missed as it is hidden behind the car park and it is looking as a tiny country house- serves superb food. We had the buffet option and it was well worth the money. Worth to mention the duck plate which consists of sliced duck in crunchy little pieces and really well cooked and tasty without the "ducky" smell that you may encounter in other Thai restaurants.

“Unbelievably good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

As others have pointed out the location is hardly over looking a beautiful water scene. The car park and bins provide an unusual view. But I suspected it was hiding some gems as trying to get a table was hard but they were so helpful on the phone. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table, the place was packed with a great lively atmosphere - lots of noise praising the food. On the table next to us they were debating if the green parts of their stir fry were chillies or runner beans, if they'd been the former it would have been very entertaining and if the latter extremely worrying, of course they were neither! Went straight for the chefs special, only 3 on there but the two we had were excellent and I'd not seen them on a Thai menu before. A simple bottle of wine that was not a rip off. Then a lemon sorbet to cool down afterwards. The service was excellent. Don't judge a book by its cover - never has this been so true.

“Amazing take-away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Just recently moved to Andover and had tried many take-aways before a friend recommended to try this - luckily enough passing by we noticed that they do take-away as well - must say - definitely the best one in town. I had not had such nice crispy aromatic duck - it was ridiculously tasty, not overcooked and juicy, one of the best ducks ever tried!
My partner had the Satay gai (chicken) and even he, being the fussiest person in the world, really loved it.

Definitely will book a table and have dinner in the place, looks so cozy and nice. The guy taking the booking was very polite and our order was spot on, minimum waiting time too.
