“Food beats the decor!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Travelled down from Taunton on a school night to join friends for a birthday meal.
The staff were attentive and quiet as mice, the food was excellent and didnt take long to arrive.
I had the Thai red curry with sticky rice and my fiance had a chicken massaman curry with coconut rice, both were demolished rapidly and thoroughly enjoyed.
The decor could use some attention, too much gold and brown but the place had a good atmosphere so no complaints, guess the company help too.

“Average food, didn't feel that welcome.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

We love Thai food, as a family and have travelled in Thailand extensively, so were pleased to find this place on our travels in Devon. We have a Lemongrass nearer us in West Sussex, and it is brilliant, but this one was only average. Mixed starters were quite good but main meals were bland. The waitress wasn't friendly and when my husband asked for crushed peanuts on his pad thai, she pointed out there was already some on the side of his plate, possibly about two peanuts worth!!! She did get some more, but it seemed a bit too much trouble. Not cheap at £77.00 for a family meal. Also had a rather strange smell about it, bleach, possibly!?

“Simple and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

A classic menu in a calm and friendly restaurant. Meals are not the largest but are fresh and well cooked. They are willing to change the heat of the curries for you too.

“Interior needs updating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Popped in on the off chance as not eaten here for a while. The waitress was very attentive, The food was very nice, though next time I visit I would like the duck with the duck and pancakes as it comes off the bone not diced up . My partner had a Lamb Mussaman curry dish which was very nice. The rice dish I had was very plain for a chef special recommendation dish. It needed my more flavour so I used my partners curry to give it a bit of flavour. The restaurant needs to be more Thai with fresh flowers on the tables, not plastic. The African statue didn't fit in with the Thai theme. But regardless of my thoughts the service was good and the food was as good as any other Thai i've eaten in in the UK.

“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Whilst wandering around Exmouth we stumbled on this restaurant. We ate from the lunch menu which was excellent value and delicious. We had pork toast and vegetable tempura to start and then tofu pad Thai and chicken red curry. The food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious.

we have eaten at lots of Thai restaurants and visited Thailand on numerous occasions between us and the food in this restaurant was authentic Thai. The staff were friendly and polite.

Although this restaurant is off the beaten track it is well worth tracking down.
