The food was nice, but not exceptional. Good by Southampton standards - the food in Southampton being generally mediocre. Nice chicken satay, but certainly not the best I've ever had. Very good green prawn curry, very nice veg, but chicken with ginger bland & not gingery enough. Egg fried rice portion small, & not eggy enough. Service good, but restaurant chilly (not helped by inconsiderate customers who stood & yacked while holding the door wide open). Not worth going going to Southampton for specially, but if you're in Southampton....well, you might as well go there. There's not much else.

Not sure exactly when it changed hands, but perhaps it is just teething problems? The service was very slow - we waited about 30 minutes before even getting a drink! However, I thought the food was very good - clearly freshly cooked and better than I have had elsewhere, in more expensive Thai restaurants. The food was worth the wait in my opinion, but they'll definitely need to improve their service to keep customers coming back.

I think this happens a lot on trip advisor... a restaurant changes hands but benefits from previous trip advisor ratings. Be warned... this is a restaurant without frills, bad service and bog standard thai food.

Two of us visited for lunch and had a Set Menu at £21.50 each which was average. The Mixed Starters were good but the Green Curry tasted of nothing, so was certainly not an authentic Thai curry. I queried it and they said that next time I should ask for it 'Thai style', which was surely what it should have been?! The Pad Thai was nice, the Chicken with Cashew Nuts was OK and the Ice Cream from Devon was lovely. It's certainly not the most authentic Thai restaurant in Hampshire, which they boast. I wouldn't rush back.
