We were staying nearby and used Trip Advisor to select the "best" Thai takeaway close to our hotel. What a disappointment! We ordered satay sticks for entree, the chicken was not moist nor succulent and the amount of sauce we were given was tasty but insufficient for four sticks. Duck red curry was delicious, duck was cooked to perfection. Mixed... More

I've been going to this restaurant for about 10 years now and it's always sensational! Love the food and the ambience. The food is always consistently good and it's fun sitting in the outside bungalows. Garlic Basil Seafood or Red Curry Prawn are my favorites!

I suggested this restaurant to my colleagues since it looked like it was highly rated. I was actually quite embarrassed when we went because the food was without doubt the worst Thai I have ever had. It was more like cheap Chinese food that you would buy in a food court.

Great value and location. Staff very attentive and food just so delicious. Couldnt of asked for better service. The decore just takes you to another place. Lots of families and couples so seems to suit all.

The service was great, always waiting on the table ensuring your glasses are topped up and that your food is alright. Lots to choose for on the menu. Great authentic flavours and very generous servings. Only bad thing is not being able to split the bill. Otherwise a great atmosphere, delicious food and helpful staff. Highly recommended!!!
