Great Thai

Great Thai food in a very nice little restaurant. Service was excellent with knowledgeable server. Menu is quite large and some of the dishes come with boiled rice, so if you want something different, you still get the boiled rice but pay for the noodles, etc. Other than that, wonderfully... read more

Been a few times for the lunch special. Really good food, service and price. When it comes to layout, service and menu, It's stereotypical of most Thai restaurants in the UK I've been to, but the food has always been top notch here.

Enjoyed a fantastic 2 course lunch here, brilliant value at 7.95 per person. We had the squid and the vegetable spring rolls for starters and the chicken red curry and chicken in tamarind sauce for the main course. If we ever visit chester again we will definitely return!

Have been coming here for many years but this was our first visit for a while. £7.99 fixed two-course lunch was pretty much faultless. Beautiful presentation and food, great choice - even cotton napkins and table cloth. At twice the price we wouldn't have been disappointed - really really good.

Me and my girlfriend visited this evening and were delighted by the excellent food and the lovely staff they have. The set menu is fantastic we got exactly what we wanted for the right price. I would highly recommend visiting if you are a lover of Thai food.

The worst Thai restaurant we've ever been to. Food is awful. Service is just as bad as the food. When we said the food was not great the staff actually argued with us about it! Would never go back even if they paid us to go.

Loved the food, excellent menu and quality. Good service and had a great evening out with couple of bottles of wine. When we arrived we were glad we had booked as the place was pretty full.....however on my journey upstairs to the loo I did see a whole new seating area upstairs that was pretty empty! Would highly recommend this... More

Just been with the family and had a great meal. Staff are excellent and really friendly and have a good knowledge to help you with food choices. Food was excellent and really tasty and clearly used good and fresh ingredients. We loved it and would definitely go back.
