Got take out. Pork was very chewy. The rest of the curry was ok. Tofu with chilli tasted like it had sweet chilli sauce in it, very average. Certainly not the best Thai in Hastings area. Will stick to our usual.

WE took the take out option, the service was quick and friendly less than 10 minutes from the time we ordered. The red curry was creamy and tasty as were the other dishes.
