Every time I have been here I have not been able to fault it. Food is authentic, there is great vegetarian selection and service is impeccable. Staff aren't terribly 'smiley' but are always professional and efficient. A little on the pricey side, but great for a special occasion. I recommend the tofu salad.

This is by far our favourite Thai restaurant. Great food and great cocktails. It's always rammed so make sure you book in advance. This place is an hour's travel for us, but as yet it has no rival so we continue to travel there. My husband loves their ribs, and cannot leave without having their crispy prawns in red coconut...

A huge amount of trouble had been taken decorating the restaurant for Valentine's Day and it looked stunning. We chose to book the area where you recline on a cushioned floor and set to to the set menu for two. Sadly a couple arrived who chose to set to each other and the delicately scented aromas were rapidly overwhelmed with... More

Gorgeous little Thai restaurant, one of the best Thai meals I have ever eaten. It is more expensive than some, but the great food, friendly service and lovely atmosphere make it worth it. Beautiful little restaurant.

We went as a group from work and found that we had been booked into the area where you sit on the floor. Unfortunately, this made the whole experience rather uncomfortable - particularly for those of us with no back support (and of advancing years...) I would recommend that you consider the full implications of this 'authentic' dining experience before... More

My friends, family and I have eaten here many times and tonight was just like all the other visits. Fantastic food! The service is occasionally a little hit and miss, but the all around experience is always good, and I always recommend the place. I suggest you make a reservation as they get busy quite quickly.

In their 'authentic' Thai dining room. This place is always packed and if I'm honest, I'm not sure why. The restaurant is nice enough, the service is good and the food is okay, but there are places not too far away that serve a much better plate of Thai food!
