Great! But Minor Flaws

Went here for a BYO with 12 other people and really enjoyed it. The food is great, the restaurant is great and the overall atmosphere feels like you're somewhere fancy! I wouldn't recommend any curries though, I feel they are all pretty generic and all taste the same as each other.. The food came... read more

Me and my girlfriends favourite restaurant while we were at uni. Even for last minute bookings we were always lucky enough to get a seat, so long as we were quick. The staff made sure of that by serving us nice and fast.

The food here, as usual (repeat customer) was spot on delicious. I ordered the Singapore Satay with chicken and would highly recommend for those who wish to try something different. Dining with a group of four other people, the first main arrived quite quickly, but the next mains were another two minutes away and the final one another five. Kind... More

A reasonably priced nice Asian fusion restaurant, easy parking in front. The service is kind and quick. I have had a Phad-Thai that was very good. The dishes are well served. My colleagues had curry's that were appreciated as well.

Celebrated my 61st birthday with 7 other friends/family. Staff so friendly and helpful when I made the reservation and then when I needed to add extra people. I have taken several overseas friends to this restaurant over the years. They, as I,have always enjoyed the food and ambiance. Staff are attentive without being overbearing. My favourite Thai restaurant.

When you walk in to this restaurant you know it is going to be good by the atoms of really good Thai food. We ordered the pork balls, satay chicken and sizzling garlic chicken. Everything was delicious and I particularly like the use of lime and coriander that gives everything that extra zing. Main definitely could've done with more chicken... More

We enjoyed our meals here recently. Generous plates of delicious Thai food. There appears to be quite a lot of sugar in some of the meals eg Satay chicken. Not so good for a diabetic. Service slick.

10 of us enjoyed a lovely meal to celebrate my birthday. I booked a few weeks out and we were able to get the round corner table. Their Vietnamese Fresh Spring rolls are still some of the best I've eaten. The Larb Guy was really tasty, but I must remember to order hotter next time. The prawn dish had a... More
