Simply the best Thai meal I've had in years.

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

My husband and I are regular diners at this restaurant. Don't be put off by the small size of the place and the fact that it could probably do with a lick of paint, the food is absolutely superb, especially the chicken satay.

Yesterday, we walked in Wellingborough Road' Thai Resto but was told nicely we couldn't dine as they were fully booked. Went to Tripadvisor again to look for another Thai resto as we're only in Northampton for the day. This time I called to check if they have a table and I was told they do. As I enter, the empty...

I went to this restaurant with high expectations because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. I would have to agree with the people who gave it a POOR and TERRIBLE rating. The place is need of some money spent on it, the walls are painted white with a few pictures on them to give it a Thai look (doesn't work), no... More

Looks unassuming but the food is amazing. Delicious beef massaman, green thai curry and pad thai. Waiter was very pleasant and the portion sizes were just right. Will definitely be back.

My partner and I have eaten here 4 or 5 times and would go back again and again! The service is friendly and polite, the food is absolutely fantastic, I cannot fault it at all. It arrives quickly, hot, fresh and delicious. It may not look fancy on the outside, but it doesn't need to be. It's humble, and it's... More
