The dishes were fabulous, so fresh and nicely spiced and beautifully presented. It was a delicious meal and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. Even on a Wednesday evening, there was a... More

We have been here a number of times now - the service is always excellent, give guidance on food and this is always lovely - I would go more except I would put on too much weight!

My wife and I had a take away, which was really disappointing. I had the duck stir fry. 2 hours later it came out my bottom like a flock of starlings. My wife was unwell too. We won't go back.

The title is a direct quote from my companion today, who has 70+ years of dining experience. We chose a butterfly prawn curry, chicken with mushrooms and other vegetables in oyster sauce, king prawn pad Thai and jasmine rice, accompanied by Singha beer. Everything was delicious, full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The Thai decor, serene ambience and quiet... More
