Lovely and generous manager!

The food was quite nice, especially considering how limited options are in Stornoway, and the woman who owns the place/cooks is very nice and generous. Great customer relations.

Stornoway is the last place you'd expect to find an authentic Thai restaurant. Small, cosy atmosphere with BYOB policy which is always a bonus. Big menu serving all the classics you'd expect at reasonable prices. Had the spring rolls which were lovely and the beef massaman curry also delicious. Will definitely be back.

This is a lovely place to eat. There is such a vast menu and all of it is good food. There is no bar, so you have to take your own alcohol but this isn't a bad thing although I would suggest taking your own bottle openers and so on as we got charged £4 for this! The food is... More

From the outside this restaurant does not seem to be very welcoming. But once inside we were surprised. Nice and cosy restaurant with a friendly owner and really good and cheap food.

We had a meal here with our daughter who had spent some time working in Thailand and who described the menu and the quality of food as excellent and quite authentic. Service was efficient, friendly, polite and the staff who waited on us were attentive but not overbearing. A most positive experience and highly recommended

Good choice of menu. Can sit in or takeaway. Very reasonable prices. Great for a quick meal to take home to your accommodation if self catering! Friendly staff!

Really enjoyed this restaurant, great value for money and excellent choices, waitress very attentive and knew the menu. Take your own wine which makes it excellent value for money

Hi, we visited here while on our holiday. The restaurant doesn't sell alcohol, so we took our own.. From the outside the place doesn't look anything special but the food tastes amazing.. Worth the money
