This is a very good place to eat. The staff are friendly and will advise on food. They were very helpful and vigilant as my wife has allergies. Could not fault them. The food was superb and good portion sizes.

Friends had told us this was one of the best Thai restaurants in York, so thought we'd best try it! Visited on a Sunday evening and it was still quite busy. The staff were lovely and the food was a good as we had been led to believe. The sharing platter we started with was just perfect. My partner loved... More

After being recommended this restaurant I decided to give it a go, the food is absolutely delicious and the staff are very friendly. They're always busy which is a good sign too so make sure you book a table as it's not very big inside.. the only downside is that there's no children's menu however this doesn't stop me from...

Reserved a table and was told that it would be in "the door" and we found out that this meant the table next to the serving area which did not really make a difference but when we were told that if a better position came available they would move us but this never happened. On the plus side the food... More

This restaurant has to be in my top 5 restaurants in York - I've visited several times now and had nothing but good experiences every time. My favourite dish has to be the Kow Pad Nam Prik Pow with beef alongside noodles, it always goes down a treat. There is a wide ranging menu for whatever you're in the mood... More

Popular place, even for a Monday night. They had a very good selection of dishes and included crispy pork along with the standard chicken, prawn or beef. It was one of the best Thai restaurants we’ve been to recently, although we felt their chicken satay was a bit dry and didn’t have a great deal of sauce.

This is a very compact restaurant. The service was very relaxed and had a lack of organisation. The deal 2 for £10.95 is indeed excellent value for a restaurant, I got the spring rolls which were tasty but you only get one which is cut in half. The main was good, the veg was chunky, the sauce was excellent and... More

Fourth visit to this Bistro style Thai restaurant and it never fails to impress. The authentic food, cheery staff and buzzing atmosphere make for a great evening. The menu is varied and the food excellent ranging from very little spice to fairly hot dishes. This time we were in a group and one of the party says he hates spicy... More

Arriving at 10pm on a Tuesday we were impressed that we were allowed to eat in - almost every other place in Walmgate/Fossgate the kitchens had closed. Chicken satay starter. Then sharing Phad Thai noodles, Red Curry and a Salad. The salad flavours were awesome but wow it was spicy. A couple of beers each (and plenty of water). The... More

The food is excellent, with good, fresh ingredients and well-cooked in a Thai style. This means you have to wait half an hour or so for the first course to arrive, but it's worth it. The prices are slightly expensive for an Asian restaurant, but it's good value. My only quibble is about the beer. They don't have draught, and... More
