Plus - great service. Most of the dishes were excellent. Plenty of rice in a portion. Nice clean environment. Minus - portions were small. Hot dishes were mild and vice versa. The menu is quite small for a Thai restaurant. Overall a very good little restaurant, I will be back.

Came here on a quiet week night after hearing good things from a friend and I was very impressed. The atmosphere was lovely - very comfortable and relaxing, we had a lovely waiter who was very friendly, and the food was really, really good - a far cry from any other Thai place in Hemel. Very fresh & very fragrant.

I booked this restaurant purely because it was close to where my friend lived and we both fancied thai food, however I was pleasantly surprised by our experience. I had never been to Hemel and the staff were very patient when I called for directions and guided me straight to the door as they waited outside (how helpful!) The restaurant... More

When I arrived at the restaurant I was a bit...I don't know...disappointed (if I'm honest). There was a big party upstairs, which gave the impression of the restaurant being really small and cramped? This was made worse by the only option open, eating downstairs. I call them stairs....glorified stepladder really. To compound that....downstairs is (and there's no other word for... More

We went on buffet night and this was my first visit so deciding what to have was difficult but after finally deciding I had the duck to start which was lovely followed by a Massaman curry, fried rice and mushrooms as a side. All were pleasant but very salty and resulted in me needing a lot of drinks. The service... More

Gorgeous Thai food, with fantastic, attentive service. Highly recommend a visit. We booked a table, and went with our 8 year old, who had never tried Thai. She was accommodated for very well, and she can't wait for the next visit. The starters were divine and the mains, were gorgeous.

£9.99 buffet night menu, starter, a main, a vegetable and a noodle or rice with a tea or coffee. Food was excellent, certainly enough of it, although those with larger appetites might want more. Choose from the mani menu which has plenty of choice, chefs recommendation tend to be mostly sea food which is fine if you like it, I... More

I go to Chiangmai cottage when I can and when I fancy Thai food. The service is always superb and the food incredible. It's authentic and tasty. They are also really accommodating. When I went recently I asked if I could have a meat dish made vege because I liked the sound of the sauce and they not only said... More

My partner and I love most things Thai especially the food; therefore when we found that there was a thai restaurant close to our hotel, we had to visit it. There are a few others lovely looking restaurants in the area, but this had to be the one for us. I can't say the food supersedes every other Thai restaurants... More
