Whenever we visit my hometown of Huddersfield this restaurant has to be on our to do list. I was introduced to it many years ago by my niece and since then they never fail to deliver outstanding food and service.

We've been coming here for a good number of years, and we've never been disappointed. The service is always very good and the food is excellent.

We eat at lots of Thai Restaurants and thought it would be good to try here sadly the service and experience was not up to a good standard. the younger waitresses need more training but the food was tasty and fresh until the dessert which does say home made, turned out to be a box dessert of sticky rice etc...

Dear Ian, I am really upset that you chose to write this review. Your are obviously upset about the stone in the dessert. However, your review is not only incorrect; it gives a completely inaccurate version of events. You accuse us of not understanding your complaint, but this is untrue. Also, it is clearly YOU that didn’t understand what we... More

My partner brought me here on 01/04/15 for my birthday and the whole experience from start to finish was superb. The restaurant is beautiful with a great atmosphere and we received a warm welcome upon arrival as well as fantastic service throughout. It was very busy even at 9pm on a Wednesday but we still only had a minimal wait... More

Have been here a number of times and never disappointed. Had the early bird with the mixed starter, followed by the Penang Curry - fantastic food. Staff always helpful and courteous.

This is the best Thai restaurant I have ever been to! The food is always delicious and service is great. Usually go for the early bird, the mixed starter is my favourite. Curries are fabulous. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Would definitely recommend!!

I really enjoyed this place and think there is food for all budgets. The early bird menu had a varied choice but I choose to get a meal that was not on there but still got a main meal and drink for under £20. Very enjoyable. The place is set out so it is not over crowded and I could... More

What a fantastic place, four of us went on a Wednesday evening without booking, the restaurant was packed but they still managed to find a table for us. They were really apologetic for the wait even though it didn't take long. The food was outstanding, and although it's not the cheapest you get what you pay for. Everyone's meal was... More
