We went here for a girls night out and thought that it would be ideal for us (being locals) the staff weren't very attentive and there was only 2 staff members for the whole of the restaurant. We ordered Tom yum soup with prawns and to be honest we were very disappointed. It tasted very sweet and odd tasting(lingering metallic... More

I haven't been to this restuarant for a very long time and just aswell. I definately won't be going back. Over price more or less tasteless food. Service at bit hit and miss. There was entertainment which was ok. The best thing about this restuarant was the fish, the ones alive swimming in the large walk over pond.

The service was fair to middling. The food was absolutely awful. NOT Thai food. My husband ordered the dry red pork curry. When it came out, it wasn't what he ordered. And only when he sent it back did they say, yes it wasn't what he ordered but the chef's away, so they can't come ok what he wanted!! But... More

Say their chef can do Gluten free but got ill for 3 days after eating their food. However they need to look into what Gluten free is as the chef obviously has no idea about the effect on allergy people.

Upon arriving we were not welcomed warmly and were told there would be a 2 hour wait very abruptly by miserable disinterested staff. We sat at the bar and ordered two drinks. They only bought one and did not bother to bring the other until 25 minutes later when we reminded them. They did not apologise for obviously forgetting. After... More

Myself and my husband regularly visited this restaurant but recently standards have really dropped. Go to thai royale down the road!

Should have followed my gut instincts and walked out of restaurant. Entered & was practically empty. Left standing unattended then a rather miserable server appeared. No friendly greeting or warmth. Order taken without any degree of friendliness. Have visited this restaurant many times over the years as it is local but standards have hit rock bottom. Unfortunately we will not... More
