I had previously visited this place a couple of years ago and enjoy a 'veggie' meal. When I went back more recently, I asked about the use of shrimp paste etc to check their cooking hadn't changed. They asked if I was vegetarian and I said my mum was, but I was allergic. They said immediately that all of the... More

Nice place hidden away from the main street in Cowbridge. There are lots of options for vegetarians and the meat dishes were great too. The food is all made to order but we didn't wait long at all. The coconut rice is to die for! I recommend the thai pancake for dessert.

We have been here a few times and always find the food to be reliably good. It is not the most authentic thai but is freshly prepared with good ingredients and well presented .prices are quite high but portions are large so it's good value

Go quite regularly as the food and service is good. I wouldn't say it's as authentic as Thai food could be, but good all the same. It's a bit dark inside so not ideal if it's a warm sunny evening.

Had a business dinner evening in this cosy litttle Thai restaurant in Cowbridge. It is a snug little restaurant serving decent Thai influenced food in abundance. The staff are very friendly and helpful, ensuring that youj have enough food and wine.Prices are average. Worth a visit if you are in Cowbridge and craving some good tasty Thai food.

On our night the staff were stretched and we did have a long wait between courses. However have been before and whilst the price was the same the food was of a higher standard . Would revisit as the staff do care... More

Delicious food in a cosy atmosphere. We hadn't booked but they squeezed us in and the place had a nice buzz. Service very friendly and efficient. Reasonably priced bottle of white wine really helped the evening to flow. Also, they were unphased by my partner's nut allergy and easily accommodated him,
