Food was ok, service was ok, price was ok, decor was ok. As previous reviews have said: Shetland is now a known culinary destination, and this is no exception. Pros: good location, easy to find, good extensive menu Cons: Salmon was not filleted so bones in every mouthful, food was cooked some time ago with sauce (delicious) poured over it... More

So as I have said in other reviews, Shetland isn't exactly a culinary destination. However this is OK. Don't be put off by the outside, which is a bit underwhelming, is alright inside. Food was tasty and service efficient. Also ignore the chilli symbols on the menu, none of the food is spicy hot. If you want a decent basic... More

Me and my partner get takeaways from here once every two weeks on average. There Thai green curry is to die for and there coconut rice is delish. I always like going there because they use a wide variety of vegetables in there dishes which other takeaways around here don't seem to do that much. Never had a bad meal... More

If you like Thai food then try this little place in Lerwick town centre. Sopa who owns it is also the owner of the Glenorchy hotel where I stay for work so have eaten here frequently and although was never too sure of Thai food have found many dishes I love.

This is a typical lowish-budget Thai place. Food good without being exceptional, service friendly. Sound system playing (I assume) Thai music was faulty and sounded terrible - manager eventually turned it off. You wouldn't think twice about this place in a large town or city, but in Lerwick it made an interesting change.

This was the first time I had been to a Thai restaurant, I've been to plenty of Chinese restaurant which sold some Thai food but this was just Thai food and boy what an eye opener, a brilliant range of food all with explanations of what was in each dish and a guide to how spicy they were. The service... More

We came here a few times on our last visit to Shetland and loved it so we headed back here upon our return visit. It was as good as ever. Don't be put off by the exterior - the restaurant behind the takeaway is lovely. Staff are friendly and service is efficient. Delicious food. Will definitely be back.

Very enjoyable Thai food. We had the set meal for 2 which was rather too much in quantity (for me, though probably not for everyone) but there was no faulting the quality. It was nicely presented and served by the owner herself, who was welcoming and helpful and whose graciousness contributed to a pleasant occasion. This is a fairly small... More
