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.

First visit and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful food, great service and a good price. Will definitely go back :-). Lovely big place so doesn't feel cramped even when busy. Have been to the geographically close rival and this is waaaaay better. Enjoy!

My family & I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and never had a bad meal. Very good menu choice, and good wine selection. All the ingredients taste very fresh and the portions are big, we generally end up taking enough back home for a lunch for one or 2 of us the next day, and we don't... More

Visit for the food it is amazing & just remember... More
