Having checked out earlier reviews we were expecting s high standard and we were not disappointed Starters and main courses were all excellent and there was a good choice of wine. Good variety of dishes and prices are reasonable. We will be back

A good restaurant if you like Thai or Malaysian food. Good varied menu - one of our group asked for a dish that was on the "old" menu the last time we visited and the chef made it for us. All the staff were attentive and made sure things were OK. Reasonably priced with good choice of wines and beers.

My wife and I both had wonderful meals, and with enough variety on offer for me (vegetarian). Staff both friendly and helpful. My wife found the lighting a bit too subdued. We both found the seating too soft to be comfortable for dining. However I'd happily eat here again.

Booked for 5pm on a Saturday and we were surprised by how many were in the restaurant as it had only just opened. My husband and I shared a mixed starter which was delicious. He had a beef stir fry & I had the duck curry (one of the best I’ve had outside of Thailand). We ordered 2 portions of... More

Starter main and dessert for £25. Cant knock that. The food was first class. We got 3 starters all were beautiful. The stir fry I got was very nice all ingredients tasted fresh. Partner got jungle curry which was in their opinion gorgeous, it was far to hot for me. Try it if you like really hot food

We had a mix of starters and main courses -all were very tasty and well presented. My main course was very spicy but it does have 3 chillis against it on the menu - (Jungle Curry) . Loved the chicken satay starter and tasted my friends curries and all were very tasty. Service was very good and friendly.

Four of us went to the Royal Outpost last night and had a lovely time. The food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. It was not our first visit and it certainly won't be the last
