3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

Came here on a Wednesday night, nice restaurant, not to busy. Starters arrived promptly, and where decent. Staff are friendly also. Wasn't too impressed with the veg tampora. Mains tasted nice, I can't really complain. Really nice pad thai noodles. If I'm around this area again may pop in. Give it a try.

There are many dishes you can select in the menu, i would like to recommend Tom Yum soup and Chiangmai Salad as the starter( quite hot ). The main courses are also very tasty and beautiful decoration on the plates. I will give 4-5 stars to this restuarant.

I was there with a couple of friends, for dinner; never been there before. The place is nice, furniture are in Victorian style. The food was good but we had to wait a long time, also the waiter was not so helpeful. The price is not so high, but you can find more for a better price.

The restaurant is not bad. Staff just need to be more friendly but maybe that is because they are so busy. Food is good but pricy.

Good atmosphere after several refurbs. Great food - once you get it. Long wait for service by very nice inexperienced staff. Price of beer worked out to be £ 10 to £12 per pint! They serve 200 ml glasses so watch out you will pay loads as you drink while you wait - and the wait is loooooong. Check your... More

There are some very mixed views on this restaurant but we have lunched here twice now and both times had splendid food. There was only one other table occupied the first time and it was the same again this time with one person (proprietor?) taking the orders and bringing the food. Must be difficult in these circumstances to manage staff... More

No atmosphere and felt like a throw back to the 70's. It was empty apart from us and another family which had a crying child. Food was basic and we were very disappointed with the entire evening.
