Well, was concerned about the negative reviews but we thought it was excellent. Very attentive staff and great service. Having eaten at numerous Thai restaurants I thought this was one of the best. Will definitely return!

ill cut straight to the point the food at this restaurant is no better then you would get from a supermarket take out bag. Whether or not this was an off night by the chef/chefs is irrelevant we shall not be eating at this place again.

If you want good food and friendly service then this is a great place to go. We have had a couple of team meals here and have always received great service and fabulous food. Would happily recommend this restaurant.
