Great service - Great atmosphere

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.

This restaurant is well established in Cowbridge and deservedly so. We have visited on many occasions, both for lunch and evening meals and have always left feeling it was a good decision.

Best thai in South Wales. Authentic, tasting those fish cakes and I could have been back in Bangkok! We found the menu selection extensive too. And the service was great, as was the value for money. Will be back really soon, cant believe we didnt find this sooner!!

Called in for the lunch time menu. Was greeted and shown to our table. Drinks arrive very quickly and orders taken. Food arrived and we all said how nice it was. Main course arrived and was excellent. Will definitely return.
