Nestled in a row of busy shops is May's Thai restaurant, with superb quality food, great staff and very reasonable. Sat with a couple of friends putting the world to rights and no one rushing us to move on. Very popular with take away but...More

We have started using this Thai takeaway as our regular. I probably wouldn't dine in because the ambience and decor could do with a bit of work but that doesn't matter if you're taking away! The green curry is just so delicious. The Thai basil...More
