Instead of ordering a take away we popped in for a meal instead. We were the only table on a week day evening, however the food was absolutely delicious, packed full of flavour and filling. I would certainly pop in again

A fantastic meal in a quiet location. The food was quick and great value. The staff were just typically Thai warm and welcoming. I will be returining as they have a regular live music event, if you want a little piece of Thailand, this is the place to visit.
