Tasty food but very loud music

We visited this restaurant on our trip to Bournemouth based on the good reviews here. They serve tasty Thai food, staff are friendly, but the music was just too loud to have a conversation.

I ate here with my wife and 11 year old son on Thursday 20th August 2015, being in Bournemouth for the air show. The restaurant has been decorated to a very high standard giving it a very authentic Thai feel. It is obviously a very popular place and I'd say booking is pretty much essential. We had a 6.30 reservation... More

Not much expertise in categorizing into Thai food or not but but the food tasted very good. Friendly staff and some background live music just added extra flavors.

Came in here after a long 7 hour journey last Monday so means to say we were hungry when we walked in, the place seemed very popular so we walked in, waiting time wasn't too long and the staff was very friendly, they did forget to bring us a bottle of wine we asked for but we let that slide...

WHOA !! ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE !!! I do not personally respond to reviews very often UNLESS they are complete fabrications, as is this one. Writing an absurd comment such as stating we charged 20% service and it was non negotiable is a complete lie and the person who wrote this should be ashamed. Firstly, we have NEVER in the history of... More

Hi Anita R, Were so pleased to hear you had such an enjoyable experience with us recently at our Bournemouth site. With regards to the bill, we add a 10% service charge to the bill for groups of 6 and above which is stated in our menu and this is 100% optional. We look forward to seeing you soon! Kind... More

Came here on a Saturday night 4 of us, Place looks nice and great cocktails Good service food was great, BUT the music was far too loud it was like a bar not a restaurant it was very hard to hear what the waitress was saying. A real shame great food but turn the music down.

Ordered a takeaway delivery, and it was very busy. Told to call back in an hour, and they could help us - promised we would be priority. Agreed to wait, as we'd visited before and enjoyed it. Called again, only to be told unless we were sitting in the restaurant, we were not a priority and they would not be... More

Hi Firsttimemama, We feel there may have been some confusion with this review, our Bournemouth site does not offer a delivery service and hasn't for over a year however our Boscombe site does. We have spoken to both sites and their teams working over the last week to see if anyone has any recollection of this incident, unfortunately the information... More
