Visited 6:30pm on a Sunday evening and we were greeted & seated efficiency. Restaurant was empty when we arrived but once drink orders had been taken and arrived the restaurant soon started to fill up with people who had reserved a table so phoning up in advance could be worth it. Menu has plenty to choose from and caters extremely... More

We've eaten here a few times & it's always fabulous. Last night we were sat upstairs, had a banquet starter which was absolutely fantastic then both had a curry which were incredibly tasty & thoroughly enjoyed. The service & welcome was warm, friendly & first class. If you like Thai food then I can't recommend this little gem highly enough.

I've been at this place many times over the years and if there is something you should expect is consistency and good quality. Downstairs is a small place and tends to be quiet so you can have a conversation, service is good and usually quick which makes it one of my first choices when I am by my own in... More

I don't pretend to be an expert on Thai food, but I have been here a few times and every dish I've had has been excellent. Okay so it is a bit pricy in some people's eyes, but you pay good money for good food. Also love the venue, nice exposed red sandstone reminding us all we are in lovely... More

Certainly the best Thai food I have ever tasted and possibly the best the meal I have eaten for some time. The restaurant is fairly small on two floors and the atmosphere is very pleasant, and the service is also excellent. The food is just perfect we had the the early bird menu which had a large selection of dishes... More

We went to this restaurant after a recommendation from our hotel Edgar House. It's quaint and cosy, nice decor and good atmosphere etc. We were quickly seated, staff polite and helpful. My only complaint is that they served me the wrong dish (I ordered sea bass and got a pork dish) Given the noticeable language barriers between myself and the... More

We all ate off a sub £10 lunchtime menu which had plenty of different meats and vegetarian meals on offer, lovely starters and enough rice/noodles on the side to fill you up.
