Situated in the Carey's Manor hotel, this Thai restaurant is not to be missed. Not only is the food excellent but the staff are very welcoming, efficient and friendly. Seems strange at first to see guests from the attached spa, eating at lunch time dressed in their bath robes but it all adds to the atmosphere of the place.

Very impressed with this place. It is a beautiful setting within the hotel - amazing really as it doesn't feel anything like the rest of the hotel. Very romantic. Food is very special - presented perfectly and delicious. Some of the best Thai food I have ever eaten. Staff were great - all friendly and helpful.

Very good food, better than expected. I'm not usually a thai food enthusiast but this was well made and the restaurant has a very good ambiance, being next to the spa in the hotel.

Can't recommend it high enough. One of the best Thais I've eaten anywhere. Also part of the fantastic Careys manor hotel.

This place was good but not very good so under TA grading I am afraid it only gets average. The food is very nice, though portions are modest at best - I am no pocket sized guy and could have eaten the entire menu and still had room for pudding!! What is presented though is beautifully prepared and cooked. The... More

We had a deal of an evening in the spa with a 3 course meal. Service was friendly and prompt, food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Couldn't fault it!

As part of Careys Manor Hotel, we were a little apprehensive about booking this restaurant as we have had some poor experiences of hotel restaurants in the past. However it was delightful - the staff were friendly and helpful (setting up a table outdoors at our request) and the food was delicious.A lovely evening.

Had a lunch here for a friends birthday and also was using the Spa facilities. The food was amazing so hopefully will visit here for an evening meal in the future. Highly recommend and very polite and helpful staff.

Had dinner here whilst staying at Careys Manor Hotel. The atmosphere was very nice, the service excellent and on the whole the food was very good. The salt and chilli Squid and Scallops with mango salsa starters were very good as was the Prawn Phad Thai main course. My wifes Red Duck curry however whilst tasty - could have done... More

This is the best of the 3 restaurants at Careys Manpr Hotel..by a long way ! We had never eaten Thai food before and found the staff very helpful. The food was well presented and very tasty indeed. The restaurant is small and has a good lively atmosphere. All in all a very good experience.
