Excellent, but very expensive

Easy to get a table out of season, so excellent and speedy service. If you like Thai food, you'll be impressed with this place. The decor is very nice too. The only downside is the cost, which I don't really think can be justified (and I'm from London). However if it's a special occasion or you've... read more

After a morning in the spa this is the ideal lunchbreak with healthy beautifully presented food in a lovely authentic surrounding.

Went here for a special treat and although I had no real complaints about the food for the money paid expected wow factor but there wasn't one. Not once did I think wow about any of the food. Overpriced could find better thai food at half the price. Give it a miss would be my advise.

Visitied whilst staying at Careys Manor. Staff attentive and friendly. Food very good, we went for the sampler menu. Drinks pricey, but food value for money.

We went to the Zen Garden as it was recommended and we were hungry and looking for a good meal for the night. The reception at the restaurant was awful. the service was only given once requested and the food was average. there was nothing done to make you feel welcomed. The staff seemed amateur. Very Disappointed....

Good Thai food. Decent portions. Lovely setting (very Zen). The service is ok, two out of the 4 waitresses/waiters are friendly. There is one waitress who is friendly and talkative only to English people.
