Great experience all round

Came here on a first date. We hadn't booked but were seated quickly even though it was busy. Friendly, helpful staff, great service and great food. We had a great time but would recommend booking first just in case.

This is always a good restaurant to visit. Food is beautifully cooked and presented. Vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked. Yummy spring rolls. Service is polite and professional.

Was quiet when we arrived, but busy by the time we left. Food was good, but service could have been a bit faster.Only compliant was everyone's food arrived 3-4 minutes apart. I couldn't eat all mine & the staff were happy to put it in a plastic box for me to take home & have for lunch the next day.

Awesome place - lovely atmosphere, delicious food and really friendly service. It is such a relaxing place to eat - I loved the paintings, carvings and fresh orchids. The spring rolls and the Thai Orchid Duck were especially yummy. Delicious desserts too, and everything is so reasonably priced.

The spring rolls were good, but the Pad Thai had no flavour-no coriander, no chili's, no salt. Don't recommend
