I visited with my boyfriend. The food was really nice reasonably priced. I opted for a curry with a side of rice to share. If you eat a lot, a side of rice to share between two won't be enough, however it was just right for us. The venue has character, it is in an old building with crooked floors... More

food was very, nice the atmosphere was pleasant, the building is very old and its rather squashed the lighting is dim and the floor is rather precious if wearing heels the staff are welcoming can be rather expensive especially if you are drinking wine on the whole a good evening out

but portions are small and the seating areas are very tight as the building is very old and limited on space so tables & chairs are fitted into every nook & cranny making it very hot and stuffy if there is a lot of people dining, as there is no air con only fans where necessary. But the food &... More

We love eating here and this latest occasion was as good as ever! Exceptional food, attentive service - it really was superb. We took a friend friend from Surrey, who enjoys Thai food, and he was bowled over by how good it was.

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.
