We took a pretty early evening booking here on a Sunday evening for my wife's birthday having not been here for a few years.

Thoroughly enjoyable food, good atmosphere, and good value for money - have visited a couple of times in the last few months and each time had good service, food and wine - even my husband has tried new dishes - and enjoyed each one. Highly recommend

I've lived in South East Asia and the outside bar had a real feel of the East! Inside the food and service were excellent. We met an old friend and his wife from our days in the UAE in the 1970's - we had a great evening!

Popped in on the off chance and was pleased to get a table as it was very busy. This had no effect on the service, the staff were attentive and polite. The food was amazing - I couldn't fault it ! A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

Great Thai food. Large portions of food, the desserts were great which is often not the case in Thai restaurants. Lovely outdoor area for dining. Staff were very friendly. Nice pub area to sit in prior to/ after the meal.
