We ate here twice on our recent stay in Buxton. My wife had the green curry on each occasion and this was cooked to perfection. I had the green curry which was delicious, particularly the sauce! On our second occasion I had the sweet sour...and salty slightly battered seafood, this too was exceptional and whilst I could not manage any more, I wanted the taste to last forever.More

One of the worst meals I have ever had! Everything tasted like watered down soya sauce. My friend ordered the pad Thai, her prawns were very over cooked and chewy. I ordered a tofu pad king which came with no noodles or rice and we...were never told or recommended to order a side of rice to go with this. I was left carb-less. We ordered seasonal green veg which consisted of soggy cabbage and round carrots in yet again more soupy watered down soya sauce. Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Truly disappointed because on research all I could find was glowing reviews, on what planet?More

Both the food and the service were good. Maybe not outstanding, but perfectly acceptable. It's quite a big place so slightly lacking in intimacy and character. No complaints and we might go back

Pleasant staff and tasty food, it just works. Reservation recommended as we saw several groups turned away on a normal Tuesday evening in June.

We have been here many times over the years and today we had a run out from Lichfield as the weather was good. What can I say? I rate this restaurant as being one of the very best for Thai food in the country. The...staff are a delight, impeccable but not intrusive service. As for the food, just go and be blown away. Truly outstanding in every way.More

I visited here a few years ago for an excellent birthday meal and was hoping for the same high standards, but was a little disappointed. I wouldn't recommend the banquet menu we had which was rather bland and felt mass-produced. The main menu may be...better. The upper floor was also very hot, with no air conditioning on.More

Nice food, quick service. Would recommend. Nice hendricks summer solstic gin too. Thai green curry can be a bit messy though the dish tipped all over the table.

I’d been here a few years back with a few work colleagues and always planned to return if I was ever in Buxton. Pleased that we booked as it was a Saturday night but the staff were really attentive and calm with us setting a...lovely atmosphere. The food we had was simply delicious and physically nice and hot, top value and lovely authentic thai food, what more can you ask for?More

They did in the evening so I guess if they're open at lunchtime they'd be happy to accommodate.
