Outstanding quality of Thai food - as good or better than any I have eaten in London or Paris - carefully prepared by diligent, expert experienced Thai lady chef (co-owner with husband). Comfortable, clean and interestingly Thai themed decorations (obviously!) in a nice old pub in a country village that is very conveniently close to Llandrindod Wells. Well presented and... More

Returning from our daughter's graduation we took 2 grandsons aged 18 and 16 to this restaurant 2.5 hours from the ceremony, halfway home. I had seen rave reviews on here so booked it a week ago. Arriving at the time agreed (7.30) we were greeted by Ray and chose one of the set meals. As all three set meals came... More

Food is cooked to order so there can be quite a delay between ordering and receiving your meal, but if you are out for the evening and not in any particular hurry it is well worth the wait. This restaurant is run by a husband and wife team and as such has a cordial atmosphere, with a good selection of... More

We love this restaurant, been coming here for years, it has the best Thai food in the UK. I've been to Thai restaurants in London that aren't half as good. Ked is a fantastic chef and Ray is a great host, full of fun and good company.

This place took a little finding but glad we made the trip here, good thirty minutes from where we were staying in Rhayader. Authentic Thai decor and excellent food, the restaurant run by Ray (front of house, very funny chap) and his Thai wife (chef). Would recommend a visit.

Meal booked for us by the B&B we were staying at - owner seemed a bit taken aback by our arrival and was extremely slow at taking our orders. Place was busy with local and owners friends so service not that good - I asked for a glass of white wine - not asked what kind of white wine or... More

We heard about this place from a person who ran this place as a pub years ago, and he said they kept the name but turned it into a Thai restaurant. We were a bit curious about this Thai restaurant in such an unlikely place like mid-Wales, so decided to give it a try. I think the owner took our... More
