Met dear friends for a catch up and Saturday lunch. Fantastic food, service and value added to an overdue catch up. Can highly recommend The Rising Sun to all who enjoy Thai and Pan Asian fare.

I was pleasantly surprised, the undercover area was nicely decorated with lights, had stylish outdoor/ conservatory furnishings with quality artifical Japanese acers and... More
