There is a good choice of dishes on the menu here as they offer both Thai and Indian food. It is nice to see beef and duck on the menu as well. We both enjoyed our meals. I had chicken green curry (which wasn't as nice as I've had elsewhere but was still tasty). My partner had a duck curry.... More

I have to say, I looked at the prices before we visited and I thought it was a little expensive... I sat corrected, there was loads of food on our lunch purchase; we opted for the lunch special and that it was! The combo of Indian and Thai was really clever; Thai Crackers and Popadoms, with Indian and Thai sauces.... More

As it was a function I had not chosen the menu, so do not want to say much.Starter was one assortment of typical India and another of typical Thai. Ver pleasant. Service... More
