The serve yourself buffet was excellent - wide range of dishes and very nice sweet counter. The drinks (wine) were reasonable - though only served in 175ml or bottle forms. Only real grumble was that the dishes were being filled after the restaurant opened -...More

On entry the elegance envelopes you into the Thai atmosphere. Attentive waiter/waitresses offering a good menu and wine list. However I just felt it was a little regimental. The food itself could not be faulted.

From the moment you enter you are mesmorised by the beauty of the decor, the scents of Thai cuisine and the authentic costumes worn by the staff. The portions are decent and wonderfully presented. The choices from sweet trolley are to die for!

The food is simply amazing, no other way to put it. A real must try. I've moved to Oxford 6 months ago, and I yet have to find a better thai restaurant than this in the area.
