Well worth a visit on their Thai Buffet Night. Lots of choice, all good quality. Nice staff. Good service. Better than the ones I have been to in London, that cost me a lot more. Give it a try!

I don't understand what these negatives reviews are about. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been dissapointed. The food has always been piping hot and cooked to perfection. The staff are helpful. They may not be English but they do everything they can today. Someone today was too hot so the waitress went and... More

Rudely ignored when we walked in, staff actually walked away from us chatting. They didn't seem bothered or enthusiastic about customers. Unprofessional. Could be a one off but have seen other reviews saying similar. Had carvery which was a good price and good choice of food but the veg had obviously been sat their a long time, soggy and brown...
