An Asian Gem In A Dull Town

Step in and be taken away to the East, beautifully carved statues and temples come as quite a surprise in an otherwise very grey, very dull town. The food is great, of course not as good as being in Asia or Australasia but easily the best South East Asian food in the area. Admittedly the... read more

We went for the Thai Banquet (non spicy) it looked like a good selection and the starters were good, sadly the main courses were less so the beef was tough and the fish only so so, the chicken was good the puddings were also a bit average. Drinks prices were reasonable and service whilst a bit slow was fine. May... More

Best Thai restaurant ever. The decor is unbelievable I couldn't stop looking around. The food is not only decorative but delicious. Fantastic service. Definitely not to be missed if you are in Cheltenham.

Decided to try this place out on a Sunday once but they only had the buffet served and I didn't really bring my appetite along that day. I then came back the following Saturday following some good reviews online and decided to try their lunch menu. The place was beautifully decorated- from wooden tables and chairs to a calming water... More

Thursday evening meal started early we were seated promptly. Ordered appetizers. Spring rolls and mussels. The presentation was amazing. The spring rolls were served in a ceramic boat. The rolls and mussels were cooked perfectly with proper spice. Main course included pineapple rice which was served in a hollowed out pineapple. A sea food dish loaded with seafood perfectly prepared.... More

One of my favourite places to eat during my stay in Cheltenham! The interior is lovely- so much beautiful deco and even a small water feature at the entrance. The food was good- I had green curry with jasmine rice. Service was very good as well.

The interior design of the restaurant is probably one of its stronger points. However the service was average and we were not impressed with the food, specially the meat dishes.
