This was not the first time that I had visited this restaurant. Friendly greeting and made to feel very welcome. The waitresses were attentive and helpful about the menu. Two of the four of us have food allergies and the staff are always careful in checking if they are not sure about the ingredients. We have never had any problems... More

Visited on the 6.3.15 and the meal and service were excellent as always. The atmosphere and friendliness of this restaurant is one of the best I have been to and would highly recommend it.

I came here on Chinese New Year for a belated valentines meal. Very busy but was found a table and soon ordered what turned out to be the best chinese food I have had in a long time arrived. The total was very reasonable for two of us. Will defiantly eat here again.

The place could do with a bit of freshen up, staff very friendly though. Ordered our meals, my friend ordered a dish extra spicy, to be honest it was served as a dish with a couple of bits of chicken but the remainder being chillis (slightly over the top), mine was nice, although one of the waitresses dished our egg...

Myself, Jude and her son Alex visited on New Years Eve for a meal before going for drinks. I had booked a table as expected it to be busy which of course it was and rightly so. Great atmosphere to go with excellent service, lovely staff and fantastic food and good value, what more can you ask for. I cannot... More

Having visited Thailand last year, I feel I have a somewhat upperhand when it comes to critiquing Thai food. This place is amazing. The food is some of the best I've had. The staff are warm and friendly. Will be going again very soon!!!

This was a nice restaurant with good quality food. There was plenty of food provided. The staff were extremely pleasant which makes such a difference. They were also very accommodating as one of us wanted a slightly different sauce that wasn't on the menu and they were only too happy to do it. It was clean and well presented.
