Good food, friendly service, warm atmosphere.

We chose the Thai banquet for three of us and it was very good - lovely fresh flavours with plenty of variety and all freshly cooked, plus proper jasmine tea made with tea leaves.

Five of us sat to eat and enjoyed the meals we were presented with. We were able to order great variety and try and share around the table in all courses. If it had not been for the one rather spiky Asian waitress this would have scored 5/5.

We went down as a trio to the restaraunt after Work and had no problem getting a table (could of been a sign!) We opted for the Buffet as there are two options, The food was ok and not a decent portion, you are also told if you dont eat up your portion that you have chosen you will have... More

Have always enjoyed this little gem. Great lunchtime menu and a wide variety of foods to choose from the evening menu too. The buffets are good. Lovely staff - very friendly. One of my favourite restaurants in town!!

Went with a big family group. Service was really quick and couldn't do enough for us. Found that to be the same when visited as a couple too. Food tastes good, and lovely and hot. Atmosphere is nice in the restaurant. Would only say tables a bit too close together for my liking. Do an excellent takeaway service too.

Very nice meal at a good price. We had the all you could eat for £17.50 the service was very good and the young English girl was very polite and helpful. We were a party of six and we had a nice table.

Have ordered a few times and really enjoyed the food. The duck was particularly good, although not enough spring onions/cucumber provided.

My wife & I went for a romantic meal last night having eaten here on many occasions. We sat down at 8pm and was instantly aware of the owner manager lunging from table to table and talking at the top of his voice. He eventually made it to ours and then knelt down putting his elbows between my wife and... More

Phone ordered a take away over an hour before we wanted it. Went to collect at allocated time and when we were assured it would be ready. No food ready. Appeared 20 minutes later. On a day when timing was of the essence (quarter finals of rugby world cup), this I thought was pretty poor. Will not be using them... More
