Visited restaurant for 1st time last week with the Mrs and was pleasantly surprised. Simple, small venue with authentic fresh Thai cuisine at reasonable prices. Very nice indeed! Would go back without hesitation.

The (English) husband and (Thai) wife team that run this place work hard to please and are very accommodating. I arrived quite late and the restaurant had nearly emptied for the night but they graciously welcomed me and we had a nice extended chat. The food was good quality and, not surprisingly, authentic Thai but nothing fancy and good value.... More

Went with friends last evening. None of us has been before but I had heard good reports. We were not disappointed ! We all opted for set menu B and the food was delicious. Whatever you do make sure you sample the Tom Yam chicken soup, it is awesome.

Stopped in the Ibis across the way and ate here alone. The food was delicious and tasted very fresh couldn't fault it! It was empty when I entered at 7.45pm but filled up quickly.

As titled. The best Thai I've eaten in years. Great food, good portions. They even served Mehkong. In the words of Arnie, 'I'll be back'

Been trying to get into this restaurant but usually fully booked. So we booked and was well worth the wait. The owner is English, but the cook Thai. The meal was gorgeous, fresh, and full of flavour. Made to feel really welcome. Liked it that much we are going back for our anniversary.

Quite a small venue and pre-booking seems to be almost essential, even mid-week. It's not a large menu but the food was very good. Service was OK although nothing special. Prices were very reasonable

I was staying across the road from this restaurant, at the Ibis Hotel. Having been distinctly unimpressed by the food and service in the Ibis, I decided to try somewhere nearby, and saw some good reviews for this place. OK, I was on my own and the first customer of the evening at about 7pm, and by the time I... More

Having lived in the town all my life, and a lover of Thai cuisine, I cannot believe that I've missed this wonderful little eating house the past ten years. If you like the thought of non-franchises, family run Thai cuisine, this is worth a try (we went back twice in a month). Probably seats only 20 or so, this is... More
