Both our meals were really tasty and large portions. Very good value for money and would definately go back again.

We had booked for 7.30, and the place was full except for out table when we arrived. Naturally a bit of a wait got good, but it was disappointing. I can make a better stir fry at home, and there was no sniff of any lemon grass. Sauces were thick and glutinous,with the vegetables mainly consisting of carrot. Not a... More

Enjoyed a tasty meal here with the family. It was good value and located near the town centre. Staff were nice but there is something lacking about the place that a revamp of the decor would help. The place seems a bit dated circa 1970s, and lacks atmosphere, sort the decor and that will improve, still worth a visit.

Had a good meal in Stornoway. Staff could have been a little more attentive (they were on their phones) but it wasn't busy and didn't spoil the evening.

Small restaurant with great food and excellent value. Also busy take-away meals. Better to book on weekend nights.

Popped in as a walk-in for lunch on a Saturday (online opening times said closed on Saturday but this isn't true) - absolutely amazing food. Probably the best Thai food we have had in the UK! Well worth a visit. Ridiculously good value.

Did not expect to find a Thai restaurant of this quality in the Outer Hebrides! Extensive menu, well cooked and reasonably price. Premises do not reflect the quality of food. Outside appearance unpromising but don't let this put you off. You will not be disappointed! One thing to remember - premises are unlicensed. Soon solved by a purchase from the... More

Known for having both a great takaway service and a sit in service. Best of all it's still Bring your own booze 🍷 saves you a fortune if in a big group 👍👍

We decided to have a dining in experience in recent trip to Lewis for our anniversary in our motorhome and went for a carry out from trip advisor top restaurant Thai Cafe. It was lovely and would really recommend. Don't think I would like to sit in, very cluttered. Letters from Royals on display were interesting if a little strange.... More

all food was very good, only the red curry under the title of specialties was more like a soup. Different from expectation but nevertheless very good.
