Food was good, portion sizes were right. Taste sensations for the various dishes were electric and they serve Singha / Chang beers. Table service was good with smiling attendants who were keen for the banter making the meal all the more enjoyable.

Surpisingly good Thai food in th middle of Crawley. I've been there several times but wanted to comment on the recent visit. I had the Duck Spring Rolls - 2 freshly made rolls with 90% filling of duck meat and some slivered carrots, scallons and cabbage with plum sauce as MUST try! Entree was the Massaman Curry Lamb Shank mild... More

Staff excellent, parking straight forward. However, they did 'hover' a bit....wanting more sales I guess....food arrived,presentation was excellent but.....it was rather small and bland. A little disappointed actually. In fact all dishes rather ' over furnished', I.e. Too much garnish. Great expectations led to average experience.

Went with two colleague for a post work meal on a Monday evening. Staff were friendly and the menu varied but not too many choices. We ordered a Duck Curry, Jungle Curry, Chicken with Cashews, Prawn Pad Thai and of course Jasmine Rice… all to share. All were delicious although the jungle curry did pack a bit of a kick... More

Having been here a few times with both groups and as a couple I think its a really nice restaurant to visit. The service is very good, they are attentive and friendly and they don't make you feel rushed. The food is really nice, fresh and tasty. I am not an expert in Thai food so although I like the...

This is a reasonably priced Thai restaurant. The food is very tasty and it always comes fairly quickly. Great for business lunch or a quick lunch

Looking for somewhere to eat as visitors to Crawley and found this reastaurant in passing. Seated straight away even though it was Saturday and they where quite busy. Service good and food authentic. Good presentation.

Right in the centre of town so get there early if you haven't booked and want to park nearby - as we did. A larger venue than we expected (and tables not packed-in close together). Friendly, attentive service. For starters (approx. £7 each, we tried Yummy duck spring rolls - scrumtastic, the best yet plus Salt/pepper squid - a weeny... More
