Two of us visited for lunch and had a Set Menu at £21.50 each which was average. The Mixed Starters were good but the Green Curry tasted of nothing, so was certainly not an authentic Thai curry.

Went twice in 4 days whist staying at the highfield house hotel just around the corner. We were so impressed the first night we made sure we went back. Had the banquet for 2 the second time. Service was great. Clean and a good atmosphere. Excellent value for money. First time I had Thai beer it was loveley.
