We stopped at this little place for lunch as we were passing and hungry. I've been past many times and the model is interesting - an English pub serving Thai and Asian food. We were made very welcome and brought menus very promptly. The menu has some lovely dishes on it, but there were no vegetarian dishes on the lunch... More

What I love most about the rising sun is that you know the food will be consistently stunning every time you visit. The staff are lovely, especially Zoe, the manager, but without being over familiar as in some restaurants. Beautiful decor and a fabulous sunny garden for the summer. Very reasonably priced for the standard of food and service. A... More

We had a lovely family meal at lunchtime for my brothers 50th birthday. Staff were attentive and friendly and the service was very quick. The food was really tasty and there was plenty to choose from. Would definitely visit again.

Lost count of the number of times I have had lunch here - not left reviews previously. I have never had a evening meal here but I am sure it will be just as exceptional. I don't want much for lunch just a good pint, quick service and great food and this place delivers. The lunch two course meal is... More

We wanted to 'go Asian' for lunch but too often have been disappointed with what is available in our area of Bournemouth so after consulting Trip Advisor we decided to venture into Christchurch. I was very happy to find that the restaurant has its own car park though I suspect that it would quickly fill up in the evenings. We... More

You never leave hungry and only need to order one dish, whereas at some Thai eateries you needs to order side dishes. All the food is excellent with good friendly service. Interesting and varied menu and it's also a pub so one can order pints at the bar instead of wine.
