I ate here with my wife on the last night of our stay in York. The restaurant had come highly recommended to us from our hotel and we managed to secure a last minute booking which was lucky as the restaurant was packed. The restaurant is actually a lot bigger than you first think when you look at it from... More

However the food was outstanding! Service was good, it was a very busy Friday night and the staff were still very efficient with drinks and ordering. The food was brilliant, lots to choose from and all presented beautifully. We were almost tempted to cancel Saturdays booking and go back!

Enjoyed our meal. While not exceptional the food was at the better end of the Thai spectrum, well presented and with notably large servings. I found it a little cramped - tables are squeezed into every corner and it was busy. Not overpriced - we were £30 each for two courses plus wine and beer. I would return.

Excellent food and great daiquiri's. Me and my wife visited on a Sunday night and it was quite busy but the service was great.

We were staying at the Hotel Indigo for a pre-Christmas escape - as lovers of Thai food we'd seen this place walking towards the shops during the day, a quick TripAdvisor search later we decided we couldn't miss out! We arrived just before 7 and the restaurant was busy, but they quickly found us a table. All of the staff... More

The menu has quite a lot of dishes and all of them are nice so it was very hard for us to choose. Our food was both very delicious and well-presented that made us really enjoyable. Definitely come back and try all of the menu :)

Best thai food we have ever had. Would highly recommend. My only regret is not having starters and prolonging the food experience. We were only in York for one night for a birthday treat but when we next come to york we will definitely return here. Enjoy!

This has to be one of the best Thai restaurants in the UK I've eaten in. The choice and quality of the food was excellent. Would definitely eat here again.
