We came to celebrate my daughters 15th birthday there, we could not have chosen a worse place! None of the waiters smiled at us and one of them raised his eyebrows, when i did not order a starter. They ushered us to order and did not even leave us time to read the menu. My daughters dish was so sweet,... More

Very disappointed to find that they do not have any flexibility regarding the set menus. My husband cannot tolerate anything too spicy. When we asked to swap a dish from the set menu we were told it was not restaurant policy. As all the set menus had at least one spicy dish we had to order seperate dishes from the... More

My partner and I ate here as part of a group of six on a Saturday evening in January. I used to come here fairly regularly when I lived in Northampton, but since I moved my visits are less frequent. I love the authentic interior of the restaurant (even though the chairs make you sit bolt upright) and the fact... More

First time here having heard rave reviews. Food and presentation excellent but rather expensive. Biggest negative was the long delay in waiting for food. Waiter kept coming back apologising but many tables were empty. Reason given was that the kitchen was very busy with take away orders. Message:- 1) Don't accept bookings especially for New Years Eve if you don't... More

Ate at the Thai Emerald recently, and it was disappointing. We opted for the vegetarian set menu as they refused point blank to swap one of the dishes on any of the other set menus. We could order a separate dish but we'd still get (and be charged for) the dish we didn't want! The mixed veg starters were a... More

We was a group of 3 people and just try to walk in, it was fully booked but they give us a table just until 8.00pm because we was short on time I was eating quickly((( Place is good, beautiful decorations, a lot of members of staff, I will come back here but first I will book a table.

We had our work Christmas meal here last night (2nd) and very glad we chose this place. The food was really quite something and well presented. Not one person in our group of 8 left anything apart from the vegetable decorations. It was quite early in the night however the food came out astonishingly quick. The service was excellent and...

Went for a meal with friends on a Saturday night. The place was busy with a real buzz to the atmosphere. Service was very attentive and pleasant. The food was absolutely delicious from the mixed starters, which were all hot, fresh and very tasty to the main courses which all 8 of us raved about. Choosing from the mouth watering... More
