The best pathia sauce I've tasted in a while. Really tangy, fruity with a coconut aftertaste. Just the right hot & sour combo. Nicely cooked chips. Food piping hot. Good portion sizes. Collected it 20mins after order. Will definitely use again.

Excellent food. Can get busy at the weekend and the food can take some time to come out due to the number of takeaways they are preparing. Midweek this is not a problem and the food and service is A1
