This was our third or forth dinner in this restaurant. Food is always good and the restaurant is always full. So remember to book in advance. The food is quite authentic, and they can make it hot or mild. Selection is superb. I liked stuffed baby squid and the dish was so big, I couldn't finish it all. Wine selection... More

Interesting concept - Thai food served in Tapis-style dishes. Augment the set dishes with some of the other offerings for a great meal.

Our favourite Thai - consistently good food that is bursting with a depth of flavour and a great variety of dishes. Relaxed and attractive decor and attentive service.

Been here twice now. Don't ask me what I usually have its squid with tasty orange coloured sauce. Staff are always very friendly. Looks very nice inside and the food is great. Always walk past on my way to work so I will be back in soon I'm sure. Keep up the great work guys.

I recently went there for a lunch and have been many times before. The sleeping honey duck and the salt and pepper child squid are outstanding. Definitely worth a visit. I've previously had noodle dishes that were delicious too.
