We stopped in here just by chance on a sunny lunchtime in Brighton. The atmosphere is great, and doesn't feel too cramped. The lunch menu is excellent with lots of variations in what you could have and set menus of about 4 different (smaller) main courses which allows you to have lots of variation in your meal, each one for...

This is a great place for lunch, the tapas style lunches are excellent and really good value. If the weather allows then sit outside and watch the hustle and bustle of Brighton. The staff are friendly and efficient.

I went here for my anniversary meal with my boyfriend and it was soooo nice! The building is cute with a few different rooms on different levels and the staff were so friendly. The food was amazing... its one of those places you keep eating even when you are full. Our table was a little cramped but other than that... More

One of the best Thai meals i have had!! All cooked to order and great fresh ingredients. A good selection to chose from and just a great all round meal at a good price. Would highly recommend this restaurant. The only down side is it is a little small inside and perhaps not a romantic hotel due to being quite... More

We ate here this weekend on Sunday night. We sat outdoors which was really nice and peaceful. The food was really, really good with a great varied menu. Would definitely recommend!

Good quality food in good location down the lanes. A busy restaurant with staff working flat out. There are lots of nooks and cranies with tables tucked away quite secluded, ideal for a romantic meal or even a group who wants a bit of privacy.

I've heard great things about this restaurant and it didn't disappoint! The food was delicious (especially the sticky rice), the wine selection was great and the atmosphere was brilliant- it's like sitting in someone's house! Thanks for a lovely evening!

The food was absolutely outstanding - flavour, presentation, amount, selection. I couldn't fault a single thing. I can't recommend it highly enough - I'm just dissapointed I've only just tried eating hear after already living in Brighton for 3 years!

Been here a few times and really love it. The salt & pepper squid are delicious and I was blown awry by my lamb Massaman curry. My niece ordered prawn pad Thai and it was amazing. The service is Beth friendly and I love the setting too. It used to be Mai Ped Ped Ped and they haven't changed the... More

Love the Tunbridge Wells Giggling Squid and this one is also excellent. The usual high standard of service and delicious food. GS never lets us down - always a good experience. The best Thai food we've had .....and we've tried plenty of alternatives
