Had a takeaway from here on 16th May. The food was tasteless, overcooked and sloppy. Avoid the place. I should have realised when I went in at 8.30pm on a Saturday night and only five people were eating there. It's a waste of money, you can get more authentic and tastier Thai food at ASDA.

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.
