Delicious meal

We had a delicious meal with very good service and relaxed atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the soup which was clearly rated for how hot it was going to be - so I could select a slightly less spicy version. Couldn't fault the food.

Granted it was very quiet (it was a Thursday after Christmas) but the gent who runs the show was great company and helpful when choosing teh dishes and more importantly the... More

We ate here one Saturday night and had one of the set menu's. The food was absolutely excellent. We had the mixed starter which was a lovely combination of flavours and the Massamun Beef Curry was our favourite dish. Good service. Seating for 20. Although it was full booked when we were there I would recommend booking in and would... More

Quiet (in a good way). Excellent service. The most enjoyable and authentic Thai food. Our fourth visit over a number of years left us wondering how it is that we are not here far more often - we will be. A delightful experience for which our sincerest thanks.

My wife introduced me to this place when she we just started going out. When we got there I looked at her askance as understated the decor and exterior definitely are. It is run by a husband and wife team and she is the chef. Suffice to say if this lady was cooking in London then she would have two... More

The restaurant is fairly small and plain in terms of decor, but it makes up for it with the great food. There is a good selection of dishes and among those our party of 8 chose they were all excellent. The service is a little quirky. Not unfriendly or bad, maybe just a bit British? If anything it made our... More

We have been to Thailand three times, so know an authentic Thai food when we taste it and this was definitely it! We had the Papaya Salad as a starter and the ingredients were so fresh and it was nice and spicy like it should be. For mains we had Green and Jungle curry with coconut rice. They were both... More

Only found this place due to our neighbour letting us know they would be having a loud birthday party, so we decided t go out to eat, instead of slobbing in front of the tv, like we normally do on saturday evenings. All i can say is "THANK YOU, NEIGHBOURS!" This is, as others have said, a small, intimate place,... More

Small, intimate and laid back with excellent quality food at very reasonable prices. Return visit with friends to what is easily the best Thai restaurant for miles around. Can recommend their steamed sea bass and massaman beef curry. Just the place to relax and enjoy all the diverse flavours.
