Went last night but seemed to be closed. Phone number would not connect earlier in the day. What a shame. Went to other Thai restaurant up the road instead. Very nice, see my review for Bali Thai.

If I was writing a review on the food I would be giving the restaurant 5 stars. Unfortunately the service really let's it down. I visited tonight with 3 friends and we were the only table there for the entire evening. It was our second visit as we thought we'd give it one more chance. Unfortunately it failed on service...

I am really surprised by these good reviews! Maybe we were there on a bad night but the food was very mediocre and it took 80 minutes to make a small takeaway order.

Called on off chance early on Saturday evening. We got in easily but as well that we weren't much later as it soon filled up. Service was excellent and the food was real authentic Thai food, not like the stuff you get in mainly Chinese restaurants with a few Thai dishes. Excellent value.

Love coming here with my fiancé. The food is always amazing, staff always friendly with attention to detail and prices are very reasonable. Newport hasn't got too many good places to offer but this one is outstanding!

After a long drive we just popped into Newport city centre to check out the old town we used to visit many years ago and to find somewhere to eat when we spotted this place directly opposite the central police HQ with on street parking just around the corner. It looked like a well maintained place from the outside and... More
