This is my fourth visit to this lovely restaurant. We don't live that locally but luckily for us our friends do and so we always insist we eat here! My husband and I have both travelled in Thailand and I have to say this food is the best we have tasted outside of Thailand. Lovely friendly staff, delicious food, good... More

We always love it when we come here. Starters, main course, rice each and two extra main noodle dishes, bottle of wine (Willy Willy Shiraz), a bottle of Singha and two soft drinks all for £75 for three people. Food excellent as always.

We visited our favourite Thai restaurant after experiencing another Thai restaurant (Orchard Thai). We were so pleased to be back to familiar surroundings.The food in this restaurant is of an excellent standard, the staff are friendly and helpful and the wine selection reaches all heights. We never have to wait long for our food, which is served very decretive and... More

Called in on the off chance. A lovely lady found us a table by the door if we didn't mind. We didn't. Service amazing. Wine beautiful. Food fantastic. Cannot fault at all. Thank you for a lovely meal. Will return and can highly recommend.

Food was ok, portions not great. Toilets were shocking as was the decor. Our experience wasn't helped by the fact the guy on the table next to us was openly making a phone call to his dealer arranging for his little fix. Service was appalling too. Will never return.

Hi, We are extremely surprised to read the review and see the picture you have posted. We are currently refurbishing the mens toilet and the picture you have posted actually shows a gap between the new plaster board above the lavatory. This has now been taped up prior to tiling, unfortunately this had not been completed before your visit but... More

We often come here as a couple and brought some family along with us for a birthday celebration, which was made very special by the team. The owner remembers us every time without fail and the food is excellent. One member of our party has recently been to Thailand and thought the food here was very authentic.

The food is the best Thai I have had - great deals on the lunch menu too. The seating is not too comfortable but then I am going to eat not relax and put my feet up. It is a small restaurant so booking is a must very rarely can you just walk in especially at weekends. Definitely worth a... More

This is a nice local Thai restaurant not to many tables so a nice atmosphere. Good choice of food which comes out very hot, tasty and a reasonable price. The waiting staff were attentive. If you like ice cream the desserts are very nice. My only negative was they didn't have any sparkling water :(
