Visited for the first time on a Tuesday evening without booking. Surprisingly busy for early in the week - had a drink in the cosy bar whilst waiting for our table. Good, friendly service and delicious food - opted for the banquet as it seemed good value. More than enough for the two of us. Will come back again.

You won't be disappointed! ..but you may need to book as it gets busy. We went here with friends and had a wonderful evening. Good menu selection and this is one of the best Thai vegetable red curries that I have had! Excellent service, good selection of wines. They offer sharing platters for a set price which my colleagues had... More

We opted for the banquet with mixed starter and crispy duck between courses. The dishes were good sized portions, beef a little overcooked the sweet and sour prawns... More
