Had dinner here on my own. Enjoyed the tom yum, steamed sea bass and sticky rice mango dessert. Fantastic decor and very friendly staff. All in all a good experience.

The second you walk into this restaurant, you know it was the right choice. It feels like your in Thailand. It's absolutely beautiful in here, the tables are set up in such a way that they make you feel special before you've even sat down. There's a waterfall in here too. The food is fantastic and they have a great... More

It certainly looked like I was going give one out from when we walked in the door its like you are transported to Thailand (not that I have even been to Thailand). The decor was fantastic, the table and chairs were lovely, the servers pulled... More

£48 for 2 mains with rice, not even any thai crackers, £7.20 for a glass of average wine. Food was out so fast there is no way it could have been freshly prepared. My vegan main was deep fried tofu that takes a while to prepare. Came out in less than 5 minutes flat. Entire meal was over and done... More

Used to be a regular here when I lived above the restaurant about 7 years ago. Decided to go back for old times sake and was not disappointed. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and feels like a little Thai oasis in the centre of bustling Nottingham City Centre. The staff are also so courteous. However, you come to Tarn...

Chose to come here with visitors to Nottingham between Christmas and New Year. Town was quiet, but there was a nice buzz about the restaurant for early evening on a bank holiday. The service was very friendly and efficient, and the pace of the dinner was excellent. I've recently enjoyed one of the Thai street food restaurants in the area,... More

This section of the city has long been associated with its vibrant dining scene and nighttime economy. The restaurant itself is half way along George Street, directly opposite the Arts Theatre. With about 120 items on our main a la cart menu, you will be spoilt for choice and our professional waiting staff are happy to help you in your selection.
