We are a well established small run family business closing in on 10 years of service. We would not describe ourselves as a high end restaurant we Just provide very good quality Authentic Thai cuisine where all our main dishes are cooked to order using what we believe to be good quality ingredients. Even though we are located in a small town in rural Wiltshire a high percentage of our regular clientele our people from the South East Asian region due to the fact there are 2 private boarding schools in the local vicinity and the students and there parents(when visiting) believe our food to be the closest to what they eat on a day to day basis at home which can be Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, China, Korea etc etc. We believe this to be the case because our policy has always been to give local people the chance to taste the Authentic cuisines of Thailand(SE ASIA) not to change it to suite the locals. We always advise that you make a booking other wise you might be disappointed and not get to taste the cooking.

Fantastic Thai restaurant so good we went back the next day!

Our group of eighteen people booked the sole use of the restaurant for a Sunday lunch buffet. The restaurant provided us with a copy of the menu in advance so we were able to choose dishes for a set menu on the day. We choose five mixed stater's and six main courses, noodles and rice. On arrival our tables were... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but thought I would give it a little word again just because it is my family's favourite. We live virtually directly opposite through the big wooden gates and this is definitely our first choice on East Street for a takeaway or if we want to go out and eat. Sometimes the takeaways can seem... More

I came here as a party of 16 for dinner midweek, it doesn't look much from the outside but soon as you step inside its the same. The staff where very welcoming and drinks orders taken as we waited for the rest of our group, the menu was a bit strange as it had about 12 starters on it but... More

Thank you for your review. I have already responded to this reviewer by pm but will respond here as well. When customers read menus I suggest you read them thoroughly before making comments about them, we do have three items that have HOMEMADE next to them as they are starters that we make completely from scratch with ingredients however at...

Would have sent a private email rather than a review but could not find a contact address as I feel I could have mentioned this when I was in the restaurant.

Thank you for your review. I am not sure I agree with your view on the office take of our premises as I have never been into an office that looks remotely like our restaurant.

We visited here on a quiet evening and we were delighted with the meal. The service was polite, friendly, and helpful in choosing dishes and wine. The menu was extensive but all the dishes were served with attention to detail and focus on flavours and fresh ingredients. Recommended.

We have eaten here several times as we live in a village nearby and are always pleased with the food. Everything tastes fresh and is freshly prepared and it is very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your review. You are spot on we are only a little restaurant run as a small family business, this as you say helps us keep the price down. We only use top quality ingredients and everything is cooked fresh to order yet we still manage to sell it at what we consider to be very competitive prices... More

Another enjoyable meal. We visit quite often and have never been disappointed. If you enjoy Thai food or have ever considered trying it for the first time it is definitely worth a visit. We always feel welcome and enjoy ourselves.
