Beautiful restaurant

Delicious food in a beautiful restaurant. The vegetable spring rolls and spicy fishcakes for starters were divine. Spicy King Prawn salad was lovely. Excellent attentive service. Good value for money. Will definitely be returning.

So our very average 4 dish platter for £27... More

My partner and I go here regularly as we both absolutely love the food. Love the place so much that I have introduced multiple friends and family to it. The staff are amazing and the food is perfect. Never had anything to complain about. Always worth the money. Will be visiting again, many many times!

This was my first tasting experience of Thai Food,and boy what an experience. From the beautiful waitresses to the stunning and very tasty food. Plus the variety of foods on the menu. There is something to please from the most discerning of eaters to the fussiest. I would highly recommend this Restaurant and will certainly be returning.

Went here for a romantic meal - decor was fabulous, loved the detail on the tables. Menu had plenty of choice and the food was excellent - very well cooked and tasted very fresh and authentic. Prices were reasonable too even including seafood dishes. Shared a bottle of very nice red wine. Service was excellent - even the trainee waiter,... More
