The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The decor is gorgeous thai and fun. We enjoyed are food. We recommend the Siam Platter to start. The duck and ginger was particularly nice.

Classic looking Thai restaurant, with very attentive staff until you wish to pay. The menu is extensive but the food is not as flavorful as one would expect. The food is greasy and full of onion, I love the fresh, explosion of flavors and colours in Thai food, unfortunately it did not deliver.

Very well furnished with classic Thai aura. Variety of food and drink which did not disappoint. Portions not large, so don't be afraid of a side order to compliment the main dishes. Well worth a visit. Service very good with friendly and polite staff.

Thai is my favourite cuisine (having grown up in Australia which has some of the best Thai restaurants in the world), and I went with a group of colleagues from work for dinner. Long story short, I'll summarize into bullet points: * The service was at a snail's pace. We arrived at 7:30, and left at 9:30 - this is... More

Came with colleagues for a dinner out and ordered the mixed platter for starter. We ordered both types. The food was somewhat greasy and the batter had more oil in it than I would expect. The main course was not as large as I would expect and was from a taste perspective. This was not the greatest Thai restaurant around.... More

We visited here as two couples over the weekend and were treated to great food in lovely surroundings. The menu is vast with a lot of choice and the staff are all very friendly. Typical Thai hospitality, with lots of smiles and politeness. Our only criticism was that the restaurant was very busy and so the delay between courses was... More

Its a good restaurant...but when asked the restaurant confirmed that a number of the "vegetarian" options on the menu have fish sauce in them. I have told them they should not advertise these dishes in their Vegetarian set menu, but they said "some people think fish is vegetarian". I told them that this is rubbish, but was ignored. So i...

I could tell my Cambodian student was missing home and struggling with the food so I took her out for supper to cheer her up. The food was overly salted and poorly cooked, I was embarrassed. When we mentioned this to the waiter, he said that is how Thai food should be. Will not be returning.

Having read previous reviews and as we usually love Thai food, we were looking forward to eating here, but was very disappointed. The decor is lovely and for people that aren't used to Thai food or are novices, I can understand them being swept away in the surroundings, but the food is mediocre and service not much better. We are... More

Tried the Art of Siam as the best rated was closed Mondays. Not brilliant. Plates brought out hot then food after another five minutes. Duck not cooked very tender. Think we can find better.
