Tunbridge wells is by no means a Mecca for food lovers but after the strong reviews we gave this a go...starter was standard (squid and chorizo...I think) but the two curries we ordered tasted identical....both devoid of any distinguishing flavour or heat and little more than stew from a tin...give it a miss and head to Sucheera round the corner

About the 5th time in visiting, prefer lunchtimes due to the set plates. Can't never really fault anything, good clean flavours, although recently portions have decreased in size at lunchtime. Very accomodating staff, just a nice place to have lunch.

Can in here for a quick bite after a movie. Was very busy but they quickly cleared a vacated table for us. Presentation was lovely and the food excellent. The entrées in particular impressed. Couldn't fault the place and would have rated 5 stars but it was a touch pricey for Thai - even great upmarket Thai shouldn't be quite... More

A really nice experience. Is the first time for me in a Thai restaurant, the food was very good,a bit spicy for the children but very very good. The service was warm and welcoming,we spent a relaxing dinner with family and friends. High recommended.

Came here before in the summer and it was great. Tonight however it was worse than overpriced pub food. Salt and pepper squid was oily and tough with zero flavour. Scallops slimy, again, no flavour. Both our mains were swimming in oil! At over £60 (which only included one beer and no other alcohol) feel quite ripped off! Won't be... More

I have been here several times with my girlfriend who is a wheelchair user and they are very accommodating. The food is excellent and the staff have impeccable manners. We will continue to eat here.

Food beautifully presented and flavours surpassed my expectations. Very good value for meal but drinks a little pricey. Excellent service and ambiance.

We went with my daughter and boyfriend on a Saturday evening. We had an early booking as all tables for later had already been booked. Lovely and airy, good atmosphere, friendly staff and hot food. Would definitely return and recommend.

Popped in for a quick bite on our first day of Christmas shopping. There were three other tables still eating, even though we were quite late. Both of us ordered a soup and a single dish. I had Chicken and Cashew nut with rice, my companion had Beef and sticky rice. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. The beef... More
