Walked in to have a quick dinner. Pointed towards a table and left seated with no menu, or water or even an offer of a drink. I had to get up to ask for menus as another group were arriving, they were promptly shown to their table, given a water jug and menus! Never going back again!!

My partner and I purchased a take away meals in late June 2014. The prices and food were all quite reasonable but unfortunately did not live up to our expectations after seeing it rates highly on this site

I am rather spoilt with thai food as my partner does it exceptionally well. The food was okay but I wouldn't hurry to eat there again.

I have now eaten at this restaurant two nights in a row and it is definitely some of the best Thai food I have ever eaten, and yes I have been to Thailand. The vegetables are fresh and crisp and the flavours of the various sauces are spot on and well balanced. As a vegetarian, I can't comment on the... More
