Me and my friend had a wonderful dinner here, having a lot of fun. I ordered another beer, and when it arrived I noticed they were not cold. Not a problem, but when I tried to get someone to get us cold ones, we felt we were being ignored. Finally I got up and walked over to them. When I... More

As you walk through the wooded entrance gate you are greeted with a wonderful, magic ambiance. The entire restaurant is laid out in such a way that each table is both intimate and romantic. And then John and his staff quietly make you feel that the service they are providing to you personally is all important ...... Then there is... More

Easy review, two words for you. Go There! Staff were so friendly and very attentive, they looked after our kids brilliantly and were great at suggesting dishes for us all. We were a large group of 4 adults and 4 kids and walked in on the off chance without a booking. Thankfully this was no problem at all, but rather... More

This was a restaurant that was a little off the beaten track. The food was typical Thai and was very tasty. Our server was fantastic and waited on our every need and was most helpful asking how hot we'd like our meals in terms of spice therefore accommodating all. John came round to check we were happy which was a... More

the restaurant is beautifully set out in picturesque gardens, the tables are intimate and you are not close to any other guests. The food is second to none and the service, particularily from Nigh and Charlie is superb. We ate there four out of seven nights as it was so good and each time we were not disappointed.
