We had dinner here last night, there was ten of us. The service was good, the food excellent. I understand that it is under new ownership and it has improved greatly. We all enjoyed the evening very much.

Also gave me the opportunity to practice my basic Thai again. Pleasant surroundings but background Thai music a little dull! Bring... More

The restaurant was very busy but our food came out on time. The quality and taste of the food was excellent and I would recommend... More

genuine thai restaurants, high quality ingredients flown on from Thailand. Very pleasant ambience . Would recommend and will return. Starter, Main and drink around £22. TIP: you don't need to charge more than £2 for a coffee
