Called in for the early bird special. I had hot and sour soup and green chicken curry. My wife had two starters consisting of wantons and moneybags with a mains of the Pad Thai. We ordered chicken satay with sticky rice for our child. The starters were extremely average, with the soup being about the best of the bunch. The... More

I took my sister here for lunch for her birthday and the food was nice enough but my sister ordered duck for a extra £2.95 and she only got 5 pieces. She also ordered the sticky rice and instead of taking how much the boiled rice off the price of the sticky rice but she was charged the full amount.... More

We went here in a last minute dinner change on a Saturday night, they were able to accommodate us a short notice which was good. My husband & I have a favourite Thai restaurant in our home town of Tunbridge Wells (Sucherra) so I was keen to see how this stacked up. The mixed platter was nice, the fishcake was... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Starters small but tasty, mains nice but I have had better. It's worth the money and a lovely little place to eat. Really this place could be better. Up your game and it could potentially be 5 *

We had the early bird offer. The food order had to be in by 6.45pm. The food was fantastic and incredible valve at £11.95 per person for starter /main course and rice. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went for an early evening meal & had the 2 course menu, Thai soup was nice & Thai green curry, its a cosy restaurant & the staff are nice, wouldn't want to eat in here if it was full as the tables are quite close together.

Been here a few times for lunch while out shopping. Staff are always friendly and the food is good and decent portion for a reasonable price. Worth a visit if you fancy something different.

Attended this restaurant back in May for my boyfriends birthday. As a party of 6, we were well accommodated and given a big, spacious table upstairs. My main reason for reviewing this restaurant now is seeing the amount of negative reviews about staff being rude etc. I have to say that during our meal here I found the staff to... More

I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We decided to treat ourselves to a banquet for two, which there are 3 varieties of, depending on price. The restaurant is small but was busy the whole evening. Staff were attentive. The starters I sampled included, fish cakes, chicken satay skewers, king prawns and shredded duck. All had their accompanied dips and I couldn't... More
