Restaurant was quite full but plenty of staff to serve. We ordered the prawn and chicken skewers wrapped in fried noodles which were very tasty but only 3. We also ordered the clams in garlic butter with garlic bread, again very small portion. We then ordered 3 thai dishes which were very tasty but served on small side plates. We... More

We visited here about 6 times during our stay. The staff... More

Perfect ambience and great food. A vegetarian menu is available too. The only downside is the overly attentive waiter service: I really don't need my glass topping up after each sip of beer. Would highly recommend the papaya salad (with or without shrimp). When they ask if you would like it hot then beware - it is as hot as... More

The food we had here was fantastic and cooked and served quickly. The drink service is second to none with icy cold drinks within seconds of ordering them. Lovely staff and would recommend.

This restaurant we walked past every day but the last night of our stay decided to give ago as were told the ribs were great. Wish we had gone there sooner as they were the best we have ever had. The other dishes were good too. So don't walk past go in.
