I visited her with 11 other friends for a friends birthday. Wonderful atmosphere. Brilliant food. Good service. Would definitely return and recommend. We had a wide variety of dishes on the table and lots of happy faces. Delicious green curry.

Although no special dishes prepared for Chinese New Year Day, however the food was excellent. We had beef, tofu, vegetable, lamb and duck, they all taste great. Also the services were good too. It was a lovely evening to celebrated the Chinese New Year. We definitely recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

Booked a table at short notice and what a great decision. The food was excellent, not the generic takeaway stuff but subtle authentic flavours cooked perfectly, including the squid! With very reasonable prices we left feeling very happy with the whole experience. Oh, and the background music eg. Joe Cocker and Regina Spektor added even more to the evening.

Had the munch menu for £10 which included a started and main course. Both were delicious, I had the spring rolls to start which were fresh and crispy and the Thai red chicken curry for main, this was really creamy with just the right amount of spice. Both were excellent. My only complaint would be the time it took. We... More
