We had the Penang curry and Mountain pork dishes (takeaway). Both were drowned in coconut cream, bland, and tasted nothing like they should have. Pork was over cooked. Probably one of the worst Thai restaurants. I don't believe the other reviewers know what Thai food taste like

A great little restaurant, excellent food served in an unpretentious atmosphere. Trust the proprietor to sort your order and you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful Thai food in a town that has more restaurants than anything else. We were greeted warmly by the owner who took time to chat each time she came by. The food was excellent - we shared Pad Thai, spring rolls, & Pad Krapraw. Every dish that went by our table looked delicious. They've been in business there for over... More

WE took the take out option, the service was quick and friendly less than 10 minutes from the time we ordered. The red curry was creamy and tasty as were the other dishes.

A nice surprice to have such a great local Thai. I love Thai food but often disappointed in the lack of flavour that they have- had the satay, sweet and sour pork and the red chicken curry and all were bursting with flavour. The Manager who I assume is the owner is full of life and enthusiasm-will definately come back
