Nice local

This is a friendly local restaurant based in the high street. Service is a little slow but food is lovely. Would eat here again.

We have eaten here with friends on many occasions. Arriving just after noon we have enjoyed really tasty food. Even the rice and sauces are exceptional and there is a good choice on the menu. A relaxed meal, main course and Tiger beer for under £10 and within an hour is a real treat. I notice that others have reported... More

Simple decor with light chairs and table, a few wooden Thai carved pictures but the food blew the experience right up there amongst the best. We were waited on with 5 star service for the 2 and a half hours we were there. It WAS the school holidays, mid week and we went in really early, a good hour and... More

It's a shame to read negative comments about this restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff very attentive. However, when I have eaten there, three or four times, I have found it lacking in atmosphere. I think that is because it is often empty. The Thai Express now do home delivery take aways. Fantastic. Food arrives in half an... More

Lovely food, worst service ever. Staff had limited knowledge of English, not even friendly Thai people. After waiting an 1 1/4 asked why we were waiting so long and was told we were in a queue. Drinks order wrong twice. Asked for a discount off the bill, staff didn't understand. They did when I told them they were only getting... More

Have been here a few times for lunch & always been seated & served very quickly. Food is lovely, very tasty. You can also ask for variations to the dishes & they will add or take away whatever you like or don't like , they will make it how hot or spicy you want. Never had a bad dish
