We had a meal here prior to an event in Exeter Cathedral. Beautiful venue with a view across cathedral green. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The flavours were exquisite with a huge range of tastes and textures. A lovely birthday meal!

What a delight to find a Thai Restaurant, run by a Thai, Thai waiting staff and Thai cook! I was lucky to get in on a Saturday night so it might be best to plan ahead and book a table as it is very popular....More
