chicken stays small and peanut sauce not very nice but the pad Thai was tasteless, dry and full of peanuts and large bits of carrots, gross. Charged £7 for prawn crackers, only had one portion and they were average. Much better food at a certain popular Thai in b'Mouth, boscome and now Christchurch. Service average had to wait ages for...

We ate here on an evening in Christchurch based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. I'm pleased to report we were not disappointed. We were running late and had to phone ahead but thankfully this was no problem and our table was waiting for us despite it being a busy Saturday evening. The table was comfortable and in an intimate... More

High quality fresh ingredients made this the best Thai meal in a long while. Each dish has its own flavour and the most of the portion sizes are generous. Their version of sweet & sour chicken was excellent. The buffet meals from £17.50 each are the best value and you get to experience all the different flavours. Great staff and... More

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

Visited with friends on Sat evening, very busy but attentive staff so no delay in being served. The restaurant is part of a pub and this gave it a really good feel. 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
