We stayed at a small village in Oxford expecting to have to either drive or travel some distance to eat out. What a fantastic surprise to find this gem of a Chinese Restaurant in such a small place, having such an extensive menu. It must be tried by you if you are passing.

Delicious authentic Thai food, and lovely welcoming staff. Would highly recommend the set menus, and the crispy seaweed!

We walked in and upon first look it's a little dingy. Needs a little more light. However this did not put us off. we had looked briefly... More

The portions are ginormous - much too big! The veggie set menu for 2 would easily have fed 4 with some left over. Don't know how they do the veggie duck pancakes but they work. Meat meals ok but soups and sauces much too thick and sticky for my taste, would have preferred a lighter touch. Very few diners but... More

We've eaten here several times as we live quite locally and always enjoy the food. Our most recent visit was for a Rod Stewart tribute night featuring the always amazing Paul Metcalfe. Having been asked to arrive about 7pm, we were still waiting for food after 8.30, and were still eating when the show started and we wanted to start... More

Duck was good and crispy with lots of pancakes. Mains not as good but the rest of our party enjoyed them. All food was piping hot and served in... More
