We asked about the tapas option and how much should we order, the reply was 'it depends how hungry you are' - not very helpful. Service was attentive and water was automatically brought over which was nice. We ordered our food - two starters and two main dishes with sticky rice. Our food arrived and was 'slapped' on the table... More

Just love this place even if it is a bit noisy for us older folk. The staff are great, always helpful and efficient despite being very busy. We were there on a Tuesday evening and the place was packed. You must book if planning peak times e.g. Friday/Saturday nights. The enjoyable thing about tapas is with four of us at... More

Quite possibly one of the best Thai restaurants around. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable and more than happy to help guide you through the dishes. The food is wonderful both in taste and presentation. A definite must visit.

We ate here on a Saturday night for a family birthday. The decor is plush, comfortable and in keeping, perfect for all occasions. Service was excellent, friendly & curtious. The food was superb, especially the starters. We opted for £25 a head menu, where the dishes are chosen for you, but they check first in preferences and spice level. We... More

I've been here several times now with friends, family and my boyfriend and I've never been dissapointed! The food is excellent and the cocktail menu is just wonderful. I've tried both the set tapas menu and the ordinary menu and I find it just best to order what you want. The tapas menu is excellent value but because I'm not... More
