Me and my friends were here to celebrate for the end of our assignment. Highly recommended the sea bass dishes and duck! Every dish is huge and tasty. Staffs are nice who always came to check whether we need anything.

After 15 years living in Asia Pacific, this is the very best Thai food I've experienced outside Thailand. And amongst the best: full stop. So great to find good northern Thai dishes that are fresh tasting with authentic ingredients. Also the Asian classics of green / red curries, spring rolls, satay, etc done to a high standard. Such a priceless... More

The food is nice. The portions of the vegetarian menu are very generous. It is a pity that the restaurant is cold in a cold day. The service is normal.

Overall this is quite simple Thai food well presented and at a good price. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is large and well appointed. There's a nice understated authenticity. Get there before 1930 Sunday to Thursday for a great preset menu for £14 very good value.

Lovely friendly welcome. My friend had the vegetable spring rolls and I had the steam prawn and pork dim sum. Beautiful presentation - my friend enjoyed her spring rolls, my dim sum were a bit solid/dense. I think they had been previously frozen. We then both had the river prawn mango salad with lime and chilli dressing. That was quite... More

The early evening fixed menu at £13.75 for a selection of four starters and three mains with complimentary glass of wine and tea or coffee to follow is really good value. The food was very tasty and well presented. Yet another great place to enjoy good food at a sensible price in this tourist city. Highly recommended.

We visited on a Saturday and can honestly say my favourite Thai in Bath and possibly anywhere else I've visited. The service was brilliant and the food wonderful. The red curry had pineapple chunks which was unusual and the vegetable massaman had cauliflower and broccoli pieces galore. Even the napkins were works of origami art. I would highly recommend this... More

This restaurant is a little out of the way but worth the visit. The food was very good value for money, (we had the set menu) We had a wide variety of food which was very well cooked tasty and authentic. The down side was that it was a Sunday evening and very quiet, so no atmosphere. But I'm sure... More
