Went mid week with my other half. Surprised that the place was so busy. Quickly found a table and drinks arrived. Food was tasty and there was a good vegetarian selection. Can't quite put my finger on it but found the service questionable. No real...More

Enjoyed this restaurant as much as I did when in Eastbourne last year. I recommend the set menus which are great value for money.

The only thing I could say about this place was that the service was good but the food was very average

On our first visit it was great to see not a single spare seat in the house, so glad we booked in advance. Really relaxed and unhurried. Despite being so busy staff were super attentive. The food was amazing and very generous portion sizes. Atmosphere...More

A little dark in the restaurant, but a pleasant greeting. Some interesting Asian ephemera adorns the walls. Reasonably attentive staff, given the number of people there, and tasty Thai food.

We really enjoyed our meal which was delicious and fresh. The menu is diverse with a good wine list. My only criticism is that the tables are a little too close together and you do feel as though you are dining with strangers.

Lovely meal, quick service and pleasant staff. Pad Thai and chicken satay was delicious with good size portions. Stir fry chicken with holy basil and chilli was good, but could do with a bit more spicy heat. Overall good visit and will try again

This has been one of my favourite Eastbourne eateries since it opened about five years ago. This time I went with my sister and we both enjoyed what we ordered and what we ate. Unfortunately both of us were ill that night with stomach upsets....More

Not above average in price, reasonable for the quality of the food and portion size I would say.
