Firstly it looked inviting. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu was varied with something for everyone's taste. Also the staff were happy to help you choose your meal and would explain the various dishes if you weren't sure about anything

Good quality food and a stylish environment which reminded me of being in London. The prices however also reminded me of being in London and the menu is in no way tapas style. Starters are starters, mains are mains ... Each dish comes with a hefty price tag so you don't get that feeling of variety or abundance. Overall not... More

Thai tapas is a must. Service second to none. Food fresh and plentyful. Price what you would expect for Thai food. Restaurant very busy so booking is a must. Definately will be returning.

Went for a meal with a group of ten others.We had to wait quite a while until our table was ready and were jostled in the small bar area. The barman forgot one of the ordered drinks. The food was excellent quality and taste. The music was far too loud and meant I could not join in conversations as I... More

We booked to eat early and when we arrived it was fairly quiet but that soon changed! Service was ok but few details were missed - we each were given the others drinks and I went for medium spicy and my partner mild and we got the other way around but neither detail were to us a disaster as we...

Ate here last night. Been several times before and it's been excellent. Ordered satay chicken which was cold, so I'm guessing it's pre-cooked and reheated. Waitress was great and took it back to the kitchen. Came back "steaming hot", so, straight out of the microwave then.... Food was just below par in general. Pad Thai was disappointing. Ordered prawn, and... More
