For a first visit we were quite impressed with what we had. I had a Ginger pork dish, and quite tasty. My wife had the daily special, a mild curry dish with beef, which went down real well. I would wish to try that at our next visit there. Yes, an enjoyable and very reasonable lunch

Fantastic food, good big portions for a fair price. Staff are nice. Always cooked to exactly what I ask for, accurate on spice. Their green curry meal and coconut banana desert dishes are amazing. I've been a repeat customer for a while now!

Stopped in here to grab a quick simple Thai lunch before the four hour drive ahead, great service - very pleasant and obliging. Just two dishes but we were delighted with both, especially the Thai Green Curry ( Pork ). If I had known it was going to be as good as it was, then I probably would have asked... More

We finally got around to going there after talking about it for a couple of years. We had a tom yum soup and meal for lunch. It was nice. Satisfying and well priced for what you got. Would go back for dinner one day.

Always pleasant and reasonably priced. Lunch service is quick and at budget prices; the lunch menu small but if you like you can choose from the dinner menu as well.

Similar review to a previous one. Stinking hot and the worst Thai food I have had in 25 years of going to Thai restaurants.

Great authentic Thai food and now have a full licence as well as BYO, but at this time of year (Summer) you need to book as it does get busy.

Cons: - no air con operating on smoking hot day, despite the air con unit being right above us - asked for Pad Thai GF (Gluten Free). That was a mistake. The noodles (rice) came out with NO sauce at all, so clearly they had no substitute for glutenous soy sauce (ridiculous in this day and age). The other meal... More

Comparing it to other Thai places I've had nicer, but on terms of food it is quick, easy and tasty fulling grub, good stop :)
