We ordered the chaophraya platter for starter which was very tasty especially the Thai chicken tacos. For mains we had King prawns pineapple fires rice and king prawns green curry, nice portion size and were delicious. Couldn’t get desserts as we were too full!

Came here with my girlfriend during our weekend trip. Food was great, especially the lamb curry I had. Lots of spices with a very creamy coconut taste to it. However the service was slow due to a lack of staff and staffs weren’t quite attentive.More

The place is more than a little grubby. The toilets are pretty poor considering the restaurant's price point. Dirty. The food is mediocre at best, the produce is not fresh. Our food was warm, not hot. The seafood used was all frozen from a packet....More
