Lively atmosphere and tasty food.

This small café was busy with animated and happy customers on the Friday night we visited. It is a popular spot so probably a good idea to make a booking ahead to be sure to get a seat. The atmosphere is very friendly with Donna who runs the café was our waitress and new our friends well so their... read more

My family and I eat Thai very often and this is one of the best Thai restaurants we have been to! The food is fresh and delicious. The lady who runs the restaurant explained to us how she makes the dishes and every dish is homemade. The menu is smaller than normal Thai restaurants because they want to make everything... More

What refreshingly personal service. Food is tasty and cheap. Beef M is the best dish. Tiny intimate and a real. Donna is a legend

Went for dinner the other night, ordered pad Thai, beef stir fry with basil and a Tom yum soup. The most disappointed dish is the stir fry, beef was not marinated and in small pieces, looks like the off cut pieces, and the dish is too watering, can barely see any Basil in it, not to mention the basil should...

Fresh flavours and Donna's friendly welcome are the hallmarks of this well priced, authentic Thai café. Donna's ability to not only remember your name but tailor your order to suit .. is amazing! Joining friends for a meal with the beginning of a cold Donna demanded that she organise extra ginger and garlic to combat my oncoming illness!! The thought... More

This is one of our hosts' favourite places to eat and we can see why. Donna, owner and front of house s friendly, knows her food (naturally I suppose), and has a delightful sense of humour. The perfect "local" restaurant. The menu has ratings from 1-5 for gluten and chilli levels, so, for example, the vegetable puffs have 1 out... More
