Nice lunch

Enjoyed a pleasant meal with my boyfriend. The lovely weather meant we were able to sit outside and people watch. The food and service was VERY good. I had the hungry squid and Thai green curry was delicious!! Recommended!

Highly enjoyable and very tasty food! All freshly cooked and great ingredients and flavours! We went with our 2 children for an early dinner when it opened and had a great meal! My daughter could not get enough of the duck spring rolls! We then sat outside and finished our bottle of wine before heading back to our hotel!

Was slightly disppointed with the quality of food here espcially as I was bigging it up to my partner telling him how awesome it was! I had previously been to the one in crawley which i cannot fault. The spring rolls seemed like they were mini frozen ones (the kind you get at cheap buffets, sorry to say) normally I... More

Good little lunch date. Got the one giggling squid tapas option and some salt and pepper squid to share. Very good all in all. Quiet lunch so service was attentive. Decor very nice. Tables are very close but I didn't mind that, gives a bit more atmosphere. Very nice lunch date and nice little building. Would recommend to friends.

The meat was very well cooked and the personal was very nice. We really enjoyed our time there and we will definitely comeback.

We visited this restaurant yesterday for lunch. A group of 4 of us were having a day out in Brighton and we decided to stop for lunch in the lanes and we liked the sound of Thai tapas. The restaurant itself is very small and situated over 2 floors. On entering the building we weren't sure where we supposed to... More

Had a fabulous meal with friends here. The food was delicious. The staff were smily, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is in a central location and is very compact with tables in little nooks and crannies.

I was treated to a birthday meal yesterday evening at this restaurant, which was booked after reading Trip Adviser reviews. Unfortunately, having not eaten Thai food in a while, this was one of the most dissapointing meals I have eaten. The food was bland and quite tasteless. We certainly won't be going back there again. On a lighter note, the... More
