Lovely food, good portions

My wife and I came here for a spot of dinner while visiting York. The food was excellent, beautifully prepared and fresh. The portions were rather large too! The menu is a good selection of classic Thai dishes. I ordered the satay for my starter, it genuinely was the best satay I've had in the... read more

Went for a meal based on many positive reviews! Unfortunately, my experience wasn't much to rave about. My wife and I went there on May 18, it was Monday night. There were few people, the service was quite ok. However, the food were not. All dishes were overcooked and too sweet. The old Siam platter was very overpriced. The dessert... More

Had a king prawns panang. Not as great as I had expected based on some reviews but ok. Wouldn't come on purpose but worth a stop over if you're nearby.

This little gem was recommended by a local pub landlord and we were not disappointed. It's a small, clean and tidy restaurant. The staff are lovely and the food is delicious. Well worth a visit.

Lovely food at a reasonable price. Good choice for vegetarians. We often eat at Thai restaurants and this is one of the best. Very busy which is always a good sign. If you like Thai food this is a great place to eat when in York.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and the flavours were always great. Previously, I would have recommended this place but now I wouldn't. The food was very disappointing, many dishes were very sweet. What was the worst experience here is....I specifically asked for the vegetarian options and ordered from them. During my meal and guess what...there was a piece... More
