This is one of my favourite neighbourhood restaurants. I have never had a bad meal and I come here often. The food is fantastic, in particular the Massaman curry but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Added bonus that it is BYO, so you can have a great night out with friends without breaking the bank. Highly recommend.

The dishes are not the usual tired old thai favourites, although some ae on the menu. The food is original and different but very well prepared and presented. They have toned down the overuse of tamarind from before and will adapt dishes to cater for any food allergies and yet still retain lots of flavour. We have had takeaway from here but in my opinion the food suffers from travelling.

Gorgeous Thai food with authentic taste. Everything was fresh and cooked to the point. The curries were spicy but not too hot.

Definitivly a place to go

A surprise with the wide selection of favourites with a number of unique twists. All the dishes we saw were well presented and appealing. Our mouths exploded with the Golden Cup entrees which had a tantalizing combination of flavours and texture. The duck and lychees in green curry was beautifully cooked and left you wanting more.
Very popular so consider booking ahead. Service was good and efficient on a busy Saturday night.
Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

My friends and I had dinner here a couple of nights ago. The service was good despite being a Friday night and full house. We particularly liked the beef masman curry and the curry soft shell crab. The tamarind prawns were too sweet. The coconut custard was presented in a small pumpkin and was typical of Thai desserts, delicious. The fried banana wasn't crisp , however they were tasty. An enjoyable evening, I would definitely return
