Very good Thai meal, friendly service. Take your own alcohol, and yes, the fish tank is too small for the fish

This was a great night at the Thai, ok so we arrived and they were overbooked and we had to squeeze round a small table but it was Valentines and the staff were really great, even although they were short staffed. The food was the best I've eaten there and i had the Thai seafood curry, seafood is a tricky... More

Worst thai food ever! There's not much choice on the island really. Service is awful, about 3/4 girls working a quiet night, all chit chatting and on their phones. The fish tank is too small for the fish. Better food in the area.

2 take away meals, chicken jungle curry, and chicken cashew nuts. Both were very nice, fresh vegetables, nice rice, nice chicken (not rubbery). The take away menu is very well priced, and we were pleased with the result. Would use them again.
