This is my usual stop off via Crawley and Gatwick airport. I have to say the Thai food is usually excellent. We passed through on the 13th Dec. The food was good but the service was slow to dire. Starters coming out one by one and also the mains. Some drinks never turned up. You can turn out great food... More

Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food (the green curry is an excellent choice). If you are looking for authentic upscale Thai food, this is about as good as it gets.

Looking for somewhere to eat on Crawley high street, this restaurant appeared most busy - and now I know why! Attentive and friendly staff, a good choice of reasonably-priced food that was tasty and provided in generous portions. I would definitely go back

Try to steer clear of crawley but have this one a go to see. Friendly enough staff but our table by a door that leaked cold air like a sieve. Starter one was ok the other needed to be warmer. Main course very average and the blandest noodles I have ever eaten. Prices reflect a much higher level of flavour... More

Ate with a few business colleagues. First piece of advice if its cold do not sit in what I believe was the old court yard entrance to the old hotel, its freezing. We had a bunch of mixed starters to share the pork dumplings, chicken satay, salt and pepper squid and springs rolls were al to die for. Especially the... More

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.
