Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Still quite surprised that Araya and Blue Moon are still ripping people off with their food and their prices. Take away ordered tonight and got Tofu instead of chicken…called restaurant and I suddenly became 6 years old, being told it’s my fault, even though I’ve...got a screen shot of the order!! You’ve taken my £49 for 4 meals, enjoy it, cos you aren’t getting anymore. AvoidMore

Firstly we went on a Tuesday night and we were seated at the only available table. The restaurant was full and 60% of the customers appeared to be of Thai origins, including a table of about 20 young Thai people, who were to their credit,...impeccably behaved, whilst still enjoying themselves. We had a bottle of decent quality white wine and the vegetarian set meal. £55. The food was excellent and tasty. My only slight critique is that there should be a little more tofu in the vegetarian dishes. The staff were courteous and efficient. The guy at front of house however looked a bit sweaty and stressed, trying to deal with takeaway phone calls. Well worth a visit though !More

We had never been there before. We just looked up for Thai place and called up and reserved the table. The food came was very good. We were looking for Vegetarian food and the Gentleman who was incharge on the floor- knew all about the...food. We were reassured that every thing wiggle a V sign had no fish sauce too. We really enjoyed the most professional service Great Food Good portion sizes. The young girl, who had just started was very well behaved. Would love to revisit.More

I love this restaurant we go often, it offers great vegetarian options, and if you ask they will tell you what is also vegan. The food is fantastic, always tastes amazing, its always really hot and the ingredients are obviously really fresh. The tofu is...always amazing and light. The staff are amazing and friendly always and it has a nice cosy feel to it.More

Lovely food and staff, a tad expensive, would come back if Lancaster wasn't such a bore. Liked that you could see through into the kitchen and all of the chef's looked clean and presentable, same with the surfaces that I could see. If you live...here or do visit I would definitely recommend this place.More

Honestly we were very pleasantly surprised! Really nice curries and starters, one of the best Thai places we’ve been to so far. Also the young lad who served us (we didn’t catch his name) was lovely, very attentive and polite. The only reason we didn’t...score 5/5 is because it was a bit pricey and lacking veggies in the curry to add texture, like broccoli or carrot. Otherwise great though, decent portions and good service, highly recommend.More

I went to see a friend last night abd we ordered from this restaurant through Lancaster Eats. The menu is easy to follow as everything is all in designated areas. We ordered the following: Phad tord (battered vegetables) £5.95 Kanom pung naa gaii (chicken and...prawn toast) £5.95 Phad mee chicken (egg noodle dish) 8.95 Gaeng massaman pork (massaman curry) £11.95 Kao sauy (thai rice) £3.00 Service charge £0.50 This order was placed at 5.40 and was predicted to arrive at 6.30 and it arrived right ontime. The portions are a very good size,  we were both happy and both had leftovers. Our starters we both enjoyed ,prawn toast can be oily when a takeaway but my prawn and chicken toast was not oily , had a good crunch and was seasoned well. My friend had never had phad mee before its now her favourite when she was a firm phad thai fan. I had a pork massaman curry   I have never had a pork thai curry before and it would say pork is a good meat to use as it really soaked the flavour up. I did aak for it to be made as a medium curry in the notes when ordering which they had clearly accommodated. The sauce was a good consistency , flavours were amazing , meat was good quaility and it was just a beautiful curry. We were both very happy and really enjoyed out food.More
