Normally I'd give this restaurant a 5 as it is one of our favourite places to eat as every other time we have been the food has been authentic, delicious well prepared and presented. However this time we went on Sunday at 7oclock and felt we had reheated food. Served by a lovely lady one of us ordered the fried... More

Have eaten here many times and have always had an enjoyable and very tasty meal. The lunchtime menu for £11 95 which consists of two small dishes ie. ribs and then chicken satay, then main courses of Thai red or green curry are really good. There is a lot of choice for lunch.

Been a couple of times now, it's not bad but could do with serving draught beer, or at least larger bottles. Food is nice but not spectacular, the Massaman curry is very good though. If you're looking for a consistently good place then you're ok with chilli banana, Liverpool doesn't have many Thai places and this is one of the... More

Myself and my friend, visited this restaurant having been told of its quality by numerous people. We were served relatively promptly and opted to choose the banquet. The sharing platter starter was of good quality and an acceptable size. For a "banquet" however the single main course each was miniscule, with over boiled rice and a minute portion of vegetables....

Having looked forward to visiting this place for a long time unfortunately the anticipation was more enjoyable that the dining experience itself. The two of us opted for a 'banquet' which turned out to be a mixed starter and then one main each. That isn't a banquet. Especially not for £26 each. Having eaten a lot of Thai food in... More

This was my 16 year old son's first experience of Thai food and he loved it! He loves Chinese food but this was a step above for him, there was 5 in our party and every meal was wonderful. cost for five starters, mains, drinks and a couple of puds was £100 - not bad given the high quality!

The food was delicious and was not too pricey, and the cocktails again were absolutely yummy. I have no complaints with the food or drink at all! The issue was the service, when we turned up we followed a woman up and down stairs before she found our table. We then had a very long wait to be served (it... More
