Interesting and delicious

Doesn't look like much but definitely worth a visit, with pleasant service and delicious fresh tasting food. The MoMo dumplings were especially good, as was the dhal - delicate flavours giving (in our opinion) a mix of North Indian and Thai. It's worth booking a table as its small and gets... read more

We visited the restaurant as an alternative to Sawasdee Thai, as they were fully booked. It was a recommendation from our landlady, but we were a bit disappointed really. The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful,. but their front of house efforts were let down by the chef(s). I went for a prawn dish which just tasted like raw... More

Nothing special, sauces a bit gloopy and not so flavourful, a bit sweet. Mixed bean dal clearly used tinned mixed beans.

Came here with the rest of my team from work. Great service and would definitely recommend. Waiters very polite and attentive and also knew the menu well to describe the dishes on offer. I told them what I was wanting (hot!) and that's what I got! I have never been here before but I would definitely go again even though... More

Relaxed atmosphere with good food freshly cooked. The white wine is always cold as I am fussy about wine and the dry white is dry. The food is cooked to a high standard as they never over book and actually turn people away rather than jeopardize the quality of the food. Excellent service.

I was a little bit sceptical the first time I tried the Ghurkas but was very pleasantly surprised. The food there is delicious - slightly Indian cuisine but less hot, more subtle. I have been back many times since and have never been disappointed. The service is excellent, the menu is large and varied.

Lovely food, great service. We stayed in the area for 3 nights, ate here for the first night and then went back for a take-a-way on the third! We had soft drinks, starters, curry & rice for two for under £30, great value and an enjoyable meal. Free popudoms are always a bonus, mango & yogurt dip, heaven! Staff are... More
