We have been to this restaurant many times but recently the menu has become more of interest to me as Im vegetarian most of the time. The tofu is homemade and delicious. It was available on three out of the five items of mains on lunch menu. Staff very welcoming and diligent in their serving at table.

Amazing place to have dinner. My sister and I went for the crispy duck rolls, tofu dumplings, duck pancakes with hoisin sauce and crab toasts. The restaurant is very nicely and cozily decorated and succeeds in making their customers feel welcome and comfortable. If you have a chance, you should definitely try this place out!

Ate here around 5pm on Sunday where we were able to choose between the pre-theatre and a la carte menu. I chose the two course pre theatre menu (around £17) chicken & lemongrass dumplings to start and red Thai prawn curry for main - both were lovely and the curry had loads of prawns in!! My boyfriend chose the duck spring rolls and ribs to start then the Korean BBQ chicken for main - all which he thoroughly enjoyed! Service was attentive and waitresses all so polite. The restaurant was rather quiet when we arrived but got busier by the time we left so would definitely recommend going early like we did if you don't have a reservation. There were a few local regulars that came in while we were dining, that the serving staff knew by name, which reflects what a great reputation this restaurant has! The only slight gripe would be that this isn't very cheap compared to the other offerings in Glasgow so maybe one for a more special occasion, although that being said, the prices definitely reflect in the quality!!

A real find! Chance visit for my daughter’s 21st birthday meal. Flavours were wonderful, attentive service and they even served a birthday dessert and sang Happy Birthday to her. She feels that she was very spoilt!

Visited on a quiet Thursday night with Colleagues. We had a selection of smaller and regular meals which were delicious. Thai Green Curry highly recommended.
