Family run, authentic Thai

Delicious thai, friendly/attentive staff, family run restaurant, highly recommend it. Have come here twice in the last month as it was so tasty. Waitress looked after us so well and food was really tasty both times.

I have been to the Sunday cooked-to-order buffet with friends a couple of times now and each time the food was very fresh and really enjoyable. Service is attentive and friendly, although the very strict '6-item ordering' hinders an overall good experience. I know how much I can eat, but it's not even that, it just makes it awkward if...

My partner travelled down to them because they don't deliver only to find out they were closed for a refurb. This wasn't put in their Facebook page also it was extremely inconvenient. Once it reopened we rang to order just in case and they have changed the menu so half the vegetarian options are gone. Not happy. Sticking with the... More

Thank you very much for your comments. We did posted on our facebook page that we will be closed on the 12th December 2015 and it's still on it now. According to changing menu, yes we cut few dishes out but not much on the vegetarians side. We just rearrange it so the menu get shorter. If you see most... More

Slightly old fashioned decor but completely offset by welcoming staff, good Thai food ( off a wide menu ) at reasonable prices for food and wine. Also right in centre of town with free parking outside in the evening ( if you are lucky )

This used to be a superb Chinese Restaurant but converted to a Thai Restaurant a few years ago . The standards and food quality have been maintained and you can still get quasi Chinsese food here as well as first class Thai cuisine. The Mandarin duck is truly excellent. The waiting staff are very friendly ,courteous and professional. For a... More

I have spent many years in Thailand and I can assure you that this is the genuine article. From the Singha Beer to the Tom Yum Goong - (ต้มยำกุ้ง) its all excellent. Delightful service too. My favourite restaurant in Dorchester

We ate here while staying in Dorchester as it was a few doors down from our guesthouse, the owners of which recommended it. We weren't disappointed. I love Thai food anyway, and the special offer on Tuesday nights was good value for money. There are lots of vegetarian choices - loads! What a treat?! Would recommend.

Living in Dorchester there were three Thai restaurants. Of the three this is my favourite. The staffs are always attentive and nothing is too much trouble. An excellent venue for business social family or just a quiet meal. Having had a takeaway on many occasions and never disappointed. On the only occasion I had a takeaway with one of the... More

This is a reliable place for a meal. All the usual suspects in a Tai restaurant's menu are to be found. Very friendly and efficient service. The meals are produced quickly and are always of good quality.
