Have been here many times both at lunchtime and in the evening and the food is always superb. We love the Satay chicken starter and the Massaman curry for the main course. The That pancakes for dessert are always a good choice. The staff are friendly,helpful and welcoming and we would recommend you try it.

Proper Thai food with excellent service and a great atmosphere. It was quite busy and we hadn't booked but there was no wait, either for a table or for service. A really pleasant evening.
