Fantastic food, lovely staff, attractive decor - shame the music was too loud for conversation

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars as the staff were charming and attentive without imposing, and the decor was really lovely. The food was the best I think I have ever had and I have spent a lot of time in Thailand over the years. We went for the £20 taster menu where you get a type of... read more

Our part of 4 eat on a Friday night & had the usual 'tables back by ...' rigmarole - as a previous reviewer has stated, it seems to be pack em, stack em & rack em.

Although it's difficult to park, once you are in the restaurant, the parking stress becomes worth it! Food was excellent, portions were massive, service good. We had prawn crackers, chicken pieces, spring rolls and dim sum to start, then chicken satay for our son with rice, steak and pad Thai for my husband and a beef salad for me. The... More

Food: no complaints, very good, quick service Restaurant: nice decor and atmosphere Overall experience: We (group of 7) had a lovely time, food was very good. Drinks service could do with improving but they were very busy so understand to an extent. However, they need to review their table booking policy. We booked our table so they knew we were... More

We went here on a Friday as lovers of Thai food and during a weekend in Bournemouth. Had originally wanted to go for lunch but when we got there, was told the kitchen closes at around 3pm. Instead we made a reservation for dinner. Would recommend booking a table prior to going as the place gets really busy. Good selection... More

The food is GOOD. Like really good. Service is friendly and fast but no too much, it's perfect. The music is a bit too loud, makes the place a bit too noisy as people have to speak louder to each other to hear each other talk, which makes it even more noisy. (and some people are not very respectful and... More
