First time of trying Thai Meal

Myself and my wife were up in York last weekend for a visit. Couldn't decide what we wanted to eat on the Saturday night.

While visiting York earlier this week we decided to try Thai food for the first time. The staff were very friendly and helped us to decide what to eat. The food was excellent - tasty and well presented. Would highly recommend the restaurant and would visit if back in York.

The staff were incredibly welcoming and menu was quite small but everything sounded amazing. The drinks menu was also pretty varied... More

The food was heavy and dense, weighed down in thick sauces, baring little resemblence to the same dishes served in Thailand, not at all authentic or fresh in flavor.

Staff were very tentative to our needs. But the food was not to our liking. There are far better Thai restaurants out there.
