I really enjoyed our evening here. The place was buzzing but not packed, the tables were nicely spaced apart and the general atmosphere was comfortable and friendly . Good attentive service , reasonably priced and finally , and most importantly, the food was a little predictable but nevertheless you got what you paid for and I would definitely go back... More

Just eaten here whilst on business, I ordered the Homemade dumplings which were amazing, followed by a Thai green curry which I can honestly say is the BEST I have EVER had and I have travelled Thailand! The service was also excellent! If you want really good Thai food and service this is the place without a doubt! Thank you!... More

Great food, especially the lunch menu and early bird evening one. The staff though do need to be a little more friendly and welcoming. A smile wouldn't go amiss!!!

We visited here Monday evening with friends having fond memories of an amazing meal many years ago and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and patient as we took a time to choose and finally decided on 2 different starter platters to share, the attention to detail on the presentation of these was great and so were the...

A had few unique dishes on the menu which we tried (keep in mind that we tend to eat Thai food quite a bit, especially when traveling). Our appetizer and two main dishes were tasty - good solid Thai food. The restaurant was clean & the wait staff were friendly & helpful. We would go there again.

Visited on 29 April 2017. I've been wanting to try this restaurant out for a long time and so glad we finally did. The food is divine and so much choice. I can't wait to visit again. I would totally recommend this quaint restaurant

It was fantastic I had the spring rolls to start with then the chicken pad sweet and sour .This was even more delishous than the starter .I had no room for a pudding but to be honest with you the meal didn't need one . First... More

We visited on Easter Sunday, discovering the restaurant by accident as we were staying next door at the Oddfellows hotel. My boyfriend is newly obsessed with Thai so we thought we'd give it a try, and were very glad we did! The restaurant itself is small and cosy, with exposed stone walls, with seating on two levels. We had thai... More
