Thai with a Twist and lovely food

I love thai food and this is a refreshing change to the normal menu. I love a thai beef salad and of all the things I have tried here that isn't quite up to scratch but all the other dishes we have tried are excellent. It's quite noisy as they haven't got many soft furnishings. Worth a visit if... read more

Having been introduced to this small Thai restaurant in December 2013, I have been back many times and with many different friends, family and colleagues. They consistently provide fantastic food, service and prices. Top tip - lunch time prices are better value.

We had visited this restaurant a few times as a couple but had never brought our children. Today at lunchtime we decided to give it a try with our children. The restaurant was completely empty. As soon as we walked in the door the waiter made a snide comment to the waitresses about our children. After another comment i asked... More

Great food and a good lunchtime tapas menu. Very tasty and not bad value for money but disappointed with service charge being included automatically.

Lovely lunch at this intriguing restaurant. Although the menu looked limiting at a glance - particularly to someone who hasn't experienced Thai cuisine before, the flavours delivered on the plate made up for this ten fold. Beautifully presented, packed with flavour and freshness, and as far as taste value goes - excellent! Tangibly, the restaurant lacked ambience and the service... More

Group of nine of us were very happy with the attentive service and range of delicious Thai dishes, including sharing platters. Catered well for meat and fish eaters, but not sure it would offer a wide range of dishes for exclusively vegetarian diners. Fairly pricey- but most Thai restaurants are in Tunbridge Wells.

We have been here many times. Good value and my favourite Thai restaurant. Can't beat their green curry with sticky rice. Nice atmosphere and always busy.

I had seen good reviews so was looking forward to this as I am a lover of Thai food. Beware! It is way overpriced and the food that we experienced was poor! The service was ok but hurried and certainly not attentive. If you pay by card you don't have the usual option of adding service as you enter your... More
