Lovely Food!

Nice garden- lovely restaurant- delicious food- sharing platters are over-priced & not very generous but overall really nice. Would go back on one of their deal days.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was lovely and came out really fast. We had the Pad Thai and the Red Curry and I would highly recommend both of them. Restaurant has been decorated really nicely and there is a good garden too, will be going back.

Nice garden, nice staff. Food is tasty but DO NOT eat here. The cost is unbelievable. A sharing platter for £12.95 consisted of 2x calamari rings, 2x prawns, 2x dim sum dumplings and 2 tiny fish cakes. I remind you £12.95. Absolute Rip Off

Very quiet lunchtime, good food on lunchtime deal. Service was slow, which for us wasn't a problem. Thai food was good when it eventually arrived.

Decided to try this as an alternative to our usual Thai in Epsom. One other occupied table in the restaurant on a Sunday should have told us a few things. Decided on the Thai menu as opposed to roast. Ordered a platter starter, very expensive for eight items and very bland tasting. Green curry very runny and pad Thai gloopy... More

Not quiet the same price. with all the deals around this it comes as expensive. The dish I had Pad Kratiem Prik Thai with rice Stir-fried... More

Hi, I am sorry we didn't measure up in your visit. I am not sure what happened with your bill but there appears to be some confusion and I ask you to get in touch with me directly at info@authenticpubco.uk The old Queen Adelaide did run a lunch club deal which was £7.95 for a meal, rice and drink.

Sunshine in Epsom's most splendid beer garden, great Thai food and genuinely friendly, knowledgeable staff a bonus and a real treat! The well landscaped beer garden gives an inclusive feel and creates a friendly atmosphere whilst the ideally sized, circular tables allow for easy conversation in larger groups; like sociable little party islands. Never too far from the bar with... More

What can i say.... This place is beautiful yet now matter how many times each year they are bought out and refurbished the service or the food is appalling. In 2014 they refurbished and it looked amazing with a nice pub garden and lovely the outside! The restaurant as always had no one in it even on a saturday night!... More

Hi, I obviously didn't see the Thai fishcakes you were served so its hard to comment but Thai fish cakes are a little different to fish cakes you and i are used to. They are in fact more of a pancake texture which you mentioned in your review. I am sorry if you didn't enjoy them but by the sound... More

Had an appalling experience from low- life 'friends of the manager' . Was subjected to a racist attack while trying to enjoy a drink . Totally disgusted by their behaviour. Needless to say am not recommending this place to anyone.

Hi, I am sorry you feel that way, I did speak to the staff working and reviewed the cctv as this is a very serious comment and clearly there is no room for racist behaviour particularly as half the team come from different countries. As I understand a table next to you were discussing the Greek crisis and you took... More
