Nice but not 5 star

As others have said this is a busy restaurant with a good atmosphere. We enjoyed the pad Thai noddles but the tempura prawns were just deep fried in breadcrumbs. Service is friendly and efficient, would recommend if you are in Bournemouth.

So, I am not the biggest Thai fan, and think when I am near the sea I should be eating literally near the sea, with a view and some seafood. However, I was not choosing where we ate. This Thai place was in face sensational. The food was fantastic and the staff very friendly. To top it off the bills... More

I had been to the beach party set up in 2013 for the air show and really enjoyed it! Having now been to the Christchurch restaurant with my partner and then the boscombe restaurant alone ( on a work visit) both times the food was fantastic!

I ate here at the beginning of March 2015 after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor. A big venue with a noisy atmosphere. I have mixed views on the visit. The staff were great, the Japanese beer unusual and the vibe proves popularity. The dragon steak I ate wasn't so good. A great shame, but a great drinking venue if you... More

I visited this restaurant about 2 months ago with some business colleagues and it was great. The same colleagues are visiting again from Birmingham and wanted to book the same restaurant again, as it was that good. So just as in the past, I went onto their website to book. Last time, I did this - someone called me back... More

We visited over the Easter weekend not really knowing what to expect. We had a reservation at 5:30 and the place was already starting to get busy. All the dishes we ordered were very tasty and you could tell they'd been freshly made instead. I'd definitely go back when I'm next in Bournemouth.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. Our daughter happened to be with us as it fell during a family holiday. Great food and really enjoyed the fact that they would help you select your meal if you had never eaten Thai before. We had but somebody ordered for us so used this service. We wouldn't next time...

Visited on a Friday evening without reservation and luckily we were able to eat! This place fills up quickly and it's easy to see why the service is really good and the food delicious. We really enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant the music was set at a perfect volume above the hum of conversation but not so loud that... More
