Solid menu with good food, but very very slow prep timing. Pesto forgot three meals, and it took almost 2 hours to receive them. Penne Pesto chicken was delicious,

Amidst the plethora of similar looking restaurants in this area ,this one, which we picked randomly, was a pleasant surprise. Though we're 2weeks into a two month trip and already tired of thai food, this was a good experience. Quick service, which apparently is not their strong point, but strangely the waiter placed each dish in the opposite corner of... More

..but the service let's it down. Hard to get a smile out of any of the waiters though we tried. The food however is wonderful.

It's quite tasty but I recommend you to visit this place only if you are ready to wait about an hour for your food.

Very reliable and cheap food that always satisfies . Great for families. Thai dishes are superb .the western style food is done in a way to be found in any good restaurant in Europe.

It took probably more than 10 minutes to order food. Then more than one hour to get it on the table . Service is poor because of the kitchen which is not following the tempo of the orders. We came once. Really a nightmare! Place to avoid !

Visited here again . This time had Thai food which was served beautifully and was extremely good. The Massaman was really good as was the duck with grapes. Our grandson had lasagna which was so good we ate what he left. Pudding, melt in the middle, spot on like last time and stupid cheap prices. Going again in 2 days.... More

I have been going to Pesto over a period of four or five years and have always found the Thai food to be very tasty, well presented and at a very reasonable price. They have obviously had an improved income as they have refurbished the restaurant area and the toilets. II would thoroughly recommend Pesto to anyone who wants to... More

Everything we do in the kitchen, from using subtle textures and flavours, to seeking out the freshest local produce has the same objective: to stimulate the palate and delight the senses.

Our menu which is inspired by authentic Mediterranean and Thai flavours creates a fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting yesterday and tomorrow.

Our aim is to transform classic Mediterranean dishes through the use of bold, Asian inflected seasonings and unexpected flavor combinations to draw the basic essence and nuanced flavours of quality ingredients to the fore and allow them to truly shine.
