We found this place during a Christmas shopping stopover at the Crown Plaza. High quality, generally better than most Thai restaurants I have eaten in. Lovely interior, and was full later in the evening. The Shiraz ( number 17) was scrummy, ended up having another! The bill for 2 was 80 quid which seemed reasonable. Would come again when in...

The title refers to the number of meals we ordered and enjoyed. Our 4 starters were enjoyable. Sadly my husbands main course which was described as mild (a yellow curry ) was so hot he couldn't eat it. As the rest of us throughly enjoyed our meals he decided to just eat the boiled rice and not make a fuss... More

After reading some of the comments on here, we were not sure about the service we were to receive. We went on a busy Saturday night and the service was very good from beginning to end and they made no attempt to move us on as we took our time for dinner. We had the £34 banquet and really enjoyed... More

When we found a Thai restaurant along the road from where we were staying on our short break, we were really looking forward to our night out. We choose the Christmas Banquet which at £34.95 per person was not cheap. The staff were friendly on arrival and sat us at a table that was far too tight for a couple... More

Weve been here for lunch a few times,opting for the 2 course set menu. This has c. 8 choices per course so still allows lots of choices. Always had a beautiful meal,charmingly served,in a picturesque,olde worlde environment-genuinely old,I mean,not twee. Lovely venue and only a v short walk from Chester centre.

We enjoyed the food, and thought it was ok as far as value for money is concerned. A real shame about the service though. Despite trying to attract their attention, we didn't get to order a second drink through the main course. I could have got up and walked to the bar to ask, but at £25.00 per person for... More

On a weekend visit to Chester my husband and I always search out a Thai restaurant to have lunch whenever we are away from home and are so glad we found this excellent one. There is the full menu, a one course express meal for £5.95 or two courses for £7.95. Seating is on two levels but at lunchtime the... More
