Have been to all the Thai Chef restaurants now except Wellington and we are never disappointed. Always get the crispy pork salad and the duck in love is also outstanding.

After booking for 20 of us a week or so prior, you can imagine we weren't impressed to arrive to find no booking and they weren't expecting us at all. Luckily they were able to set up a large table while we waited for 15 mins... More

This is our local restaurant and every time we dine here we come away happy. The atmosphere is good and the food very tasty it's great for couples to have a quick meal before going out or groups who have an occasion to celebrate. I recommend sharing dishes that way you get to sample more delicious food. Gluten free options... More
