Dinned and was very disappointed. My soup that according to the menu would have coriander and lemongrass in it had neither and on mentioning this I was informed "those ingredients are to expensive down here" sorry! I almost had to laugh. The pad thai had now snow pea shoots and was bland aside from tasting like tomato sauce. My dad's... More

This place has some of the worst thai food I have had in a while. The ingedients of a Thai meal were all there... but in the wrong quantities... making the larb overpowered by oil and fish/oyster sauce. It was edible... but only just. Perhaps the chefs have gotten lazy. Buy a recipe book and try again... Over priced for... More

Had a very bad dining experience here tonight. The place was empty so no excuse for the mistakes. We ordered entrees and mains. The mains arrived but no entrees when we questioned this it turned out the waitress had forgotten to write them down. We ordered 4 mains and one delivered was the wrong order. One main came much later... More

We ordered takeaway and were impressed by how fast our service was. The chicken Panang was very good, the rice was amazing not dry at all. We were happy to try this place on a whim. Thanks Bamboo

Visit to get takeaway food. It was basic a bit oily and we had to suggest they added tofu for the vegetarian option. Wouldn't go back if there was a better option.
