We ate dinner here for our daughters birthday. The menu is extensive with something to suit everyone.

Huge menu cooked traditionally with plenty of flavour and good portion size. Although prices are mid range the quality of food and flavour is worth every cent. If you do like things extra spicy make sure you let the server know. This is our go to for Thai take out. You can also dine in.

I've eaten Thai all over the world and this is was by far some of the worst. Cashew beef...more onion than anything else. Even after removing all of the onion, the whole dish tastes disgusting like onion. No vegetables! Gross!!

This place seems to cop a bit of a hard time on Tripadvisor which surprises me. We have take-away from here regularly and always love it. The Pad Thai, Green Chicken Curry and Nuer Aroy are some of our favourites but it's all good.

We ordered larb gai, pad thai, and khao pad tonight. Larb gai came with no mint (the key herb of the dish)! Larb tastes sweet which is wrong as larb is supposed to be sour. Pad thai is like a normal stir-friend noodle with only a few pieces of meat. There's nothing special about khao pad either.

Booked ahead and we were shown to our table and that is where we sat for the next 20 minutes. No one asked if we wanted a drink while looking at the menu. Sat patiently and decided what we would like to order. 2 waitresses were in and out of the room bringing in meals and showing customers to their... More

Thai is a particular favourite and Suwan hasn't let me down yet. The Penang Curry was fabulous - I'd like to see coconut rice added to the menu
