Been to this restaurant a few times now. Would have to say it is probably the No. Thai restaurant in the city. Great food, great service and well worth a visit.

First time in the Glasgow restaurant, been to Edinburgh one. We had lunch on a Saturday, excellent service from start to finish, they are really attentive starting from being escorted from the reception to your table. Couldn't fault it. Food terrific as well, it's just fab! Bit pricey, but you get what you pay for! Great surroundings also with a... More

Top class, fantastic sea bass with coconut rice, simply one of the best Thai restaurants I've been to in years. I'll be back and would highly recommend. Shout out to Ahmad and Palm for 1st class service. Well done both!

Loved the building, the décor, the service and the drinks but felt a bit disappointed with the food although maybe that was partly my fault. They had only one beer on draught, which was good but the chosen wine was unavailable but a very good alternative was available so no complaints. The chicken satay starter was really nicely presented and... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Glasgow, and its probably one of the best places to get thai food in glasgow as its the most authentic compared to others. Over the last few months i have notice that the service has improved upstairs so this is a plus and definitely adds to the building as the glasgow building is much... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in the city centre, food was amazing as was the setting. Unfortunately the menu has changed and shortened considerably.... Which would be OK if the food was still the same... Be warned IT IS NOT!!! Either it is new management or new chefs, but regardless it is poor compared to what it used... More

If you are lucky, you can phone on the day and get a booking but if you know that you are coming to Glasgow and are looking for an outstandingly different meal in stunning surroundings (particularly the restaurant area upstairs), then call them first and arrange everything else you are planning to do around it. The staff are friendly, courteous... More

Visited here last evening and it made a great first impression. A great use of a classic Glasgow building. I had the Weeping Tiger Sirloin and my wife had the Cashew Chicken, both were excellent ( I tried both lol). Service was quick but at no time did we feel rushed, I don't like slow service. There are cheaper places... More

Menu had many options but we too the mixed starter. A good choice as it gave a great variety. Then i had a chicken curry. The resteraunt was busy. But in no way... More
