Visited twice on holiday. First time a take-away then a second eat-in with the family. On both occasions, the food was really well cooked and flavoured. It was inexpensive and fast, and I would definitely have visited again if we'd had the time. Highly recommended for a yummy dinner. If you like really hot food, request your dishes "Thai style"...

Very good and very cheap food ; isn't this what we all want ? Don't go for a romantic diner but go there for the very nice food. Good service as well. Parking right in front.

Wanted Sushi, however the Thai Cafe's bold illuminated sign caught my eye. The first we noticed was the incredible cleanliness of this eatery. The interior is colourful and the ambiance extremely pleasant. Service is instantaneous, with a dash of speed. The waitress was pleasant, polite and very clued up relating to the menu. The Duck was sensational, as was the... More

Everyone had told us about this great take-away joint. But we decided to go for a sit down. Small eating space, both inside our outdoors, but what you will get is the most friendly service and recommendations. Grandkids ate Khao Phad Chicken and Spring Rolls, we opted for Massaman Curry Beef/Chicken in various degrees of heat. Both were great, and... More
