Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. Was busy but staff friendly and didn't rush us to make a choice on food. Took drinks order and then food order on return off drinks. There was 6 of us and we all had a set menu. All food was very good and arrived quickly considering how busy they were. I would... More

We visited after seeing Tommy at the Wolsey theatre. It was quite late when we got there but we received a friendly welcome and were soon tucking into the mixed tempura vegetable starter. My beef in oyster sauce was excellent and my veggie partner had a really tasty red curry with nice rice and lovely noodles.

Never been to a Thai restaurant before and was really surprised, as I am a Chinese food eater mainly. Arrived at our alootted time and found that the restaurant was busy - The staff were attentative and polite. Being the driver for the night, I was disappointed that their soft drinks did not include, Apple juice or even any J20`s... More

We arrived on the spur of the moment and the restaurant was very busy. The staff could not have been more helpful in accommodating us for dinner. Yes we were given an hour time slot but that was more than appreciated and reasonable. The food was good and the menu extensive. Would recommend

Unfortunately it was not how we remembered. The starters were fairly nice apart from the prawn toast which tasted like the prawns weren't fresh and this taste then ended up in our main dish of green chicken curry which was rather strange as there were no prawns in this dish. Overall it was ok but not as good as it... More

Went there on a Friday night and had a brilliant time. The atmosphere is great and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The food is very good quality too. It's a fairly small busy restaurant that is very popular so it's a good idea to book in advance. We've been there a lot of times and have never been... More

We went mid week and the place was packed. You know why when you experience the welcome and the good food. Previous reviews have recommended certain dishes and I tried some of them, they were all very good. Full marks for the service and attention, a definite recommendation.
