Probably would not go anywhere else for Thai food in and around MK. Food always good and staff always helpful.

This lovely restaurant is right in the centre of Aspley Guise. We ate on a Sunday evening. It was fairly quiet, but this made no difference to the atmosphere. There was a very friendly welcome by all staff. The service was excellent. The food was top quality & beautifully served. Hot hand towels afterwards. I have eaten in quite a... More

We dined with friends, and selected the set menu B it was delicious and my only minor issue is I could have eaten more. Good table with plenty of room not squeezed in. The restaurant was very busy but that did not affect the service or quality of food. The car park is small, so you may have to park... More

Six for Indian food not Thai food as we normally have here. We went on 5th Nov. Our table was booked for 8.30 restaurant seemed quieter than it normally does however we all agreed food and service was good the only criticism is the chicken Dansak was far too hot! Much hotter than most Indian restaurants I have eaten in.

We actually ended up here by chance after having a poor experience at another restaurant down the road, I now wish we'd just booked this place from the start and saved us all the hassle. We arrived without a booking and we're quickly found a table for 2 despite the restaurant being pretty busy, service was great and the food... More

This is the kind of place that you want to tell everyone about because its so good but then you selfishly don't want everyone to go there, so they get too busy to fit you in. The restaurant is in the beautiful village of Aspley Guise in a picturesque old building facing the village square. The small car park is... More

Love this place - great food and fantastic service every time. We had the set menu this time which was good. No room for pudding though!

We found this restaurant, on a recommendation. The service was attentive, but unobtrusive. The menu is extensive and mouth watering I have to confess to being a 'lazy diner' by ordering the set meal. The food arrived in good time, each dish beautifully presented. I'd recommend each dish individually as a meal, a great combination. My tip; leave some space... More
