Nice Thai food and ideally located as we were staying upstairs. The range of food was good and it was well cooked, the soup I had was wonderful and my son loved his coconut rice and beef curry

I saw an advert in the Weymouth/Dorset tourist magazine and thought we'd try it. From the outside, there is no kerb appeal; the building looks really shabby. Inside, the decor is still bad. Looks like it was last painted by Mr Bean, with splashes and drips! The WCs were clean, but painted really badly and there was a grab handle... More

We discovered this restaurant by chance a few years ago as it is tucked away in a small backstreet. The outside of the pub is a little tired however that is not the case with the Thai food. It is freshly cooked, very tasty and reasonably priced. Love it. Great takeaway menu

We chose this restuarant based on good reviews. we were very disappointed. We ordered a green thai curry and a red thai curry. The green which is advertised as hot was tasteless and the red had equally no flavour. The chicken tastred as if it had been boiled. When we complained the chef came out and shouted at us as...

We were in the Weymouth area looking for an early evening meal (on a Weds), so looked on Trip Advisor and this Thai restaurant was very high up. But I am not 100% sure why. The hotel/restaurant/bar is in need of a refurbishment e.g paint peeling, wires showing, worn carpets etc. It is away from the centre and the coast,... More

This is definitely a must for those who love Thai food and also for those who've never tried it - you won't find better. The selection was excellent, presentation was appealing and the food was really good. Yes, as others have said, it is attached to an old pub, the decor is a bit tired but the service and food...

This is a bit off the beaten track but our trusty satnav got us there. It is a typical old pub with a restaurant, it would not win prizes for décor but the food more than makes up for it, fabulous. The staff were lovely and friendly and more than helpful, a special mention to Chimi (hope that is correct).... More

Great place, super menu, I'm running out of superlatives here! We've visited here a few times and have never been disappointed. People moan about the fact that it's in a pub etc, but I say that's just fine. The staff are brilliant and the food is too. Very reasonable prices.
