“As good as ever. Finest Thai in Medway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

I could wax lyrical about the usual high standard of the food, service and overall experience but why bother. Just go yourself and experience my favourite Thai in Medway. Nothing else comes close in this area.

“Dim Sum of its parts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Booked a table for two over online however, when we arrived there was no record of our reservation, no matter as there were only two other tables occupied. The restaurant itself is a bit dark and gloomy, the walls are clad in a dark wood panelling and left quite bare. A few pictures here and there along with some table candles (ooh fancy!) and perhaps some background music may lighten the mood a tad.

From the moment we walked in, the staff were lovely. They were full of smiles and more than attentive.
The food itself is ok. Without wallowing in self pretence, it’s not the same quality as some of the decent London Dim Sum, but for Rochester, for the price and for a wet Saturday night, it was more than pleasant.
The prices are cheap, they don’t sell booze, so that’ll keep your cost down. They do provide glassware and will put your grog in their fridge for you.

To surmise; if you fancy a cheapish meal out, you could do a lot worse than this. My only criticism is that there isn’t a huge amount of Dim Sum to choose from, but, I guess its enough.
I will return, but probably not for a while.

“Perfect Evening !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

Spent a lovely evening here, its Dim Sum / Chinese - the Roast Duck is to die for and you can eat at your own leisure. Its bring your own booze and no corkage. The staff are so nice and freindly, I would go back simply to talk to the waitress who advised me of places to visit when I go on holiday to Thailand soon....

The restaurant is very close to Limehouse Thai, I understand there owned by the same people but they are different food.

Make sure you try....oh and its not expensive either....
