We came here twice on our recent holiday to Porthleven, and again we weren't disappointed. The girl behind the counter (Tara I think), very pleasant and chatty. The food was once again great. Id recommend the Dry Chilli Beef, it has certainly got a kick to it. You get a good sized portion whatever you order. Looking forward to a... More

We decided to call in here even though the reviews were mixed but ended up feeling glad we made the effort. It was quiet when we called in, no one else in the restaurant but they started taking takeaway orders. Ordered 3 king prawn dishes and chicken dish at 6.35, however it did not arrive until 7.30! Yes, 55 minutes... More

We didn't eat in the restaurant but had a takeaway from here twice during our stay - we liked it the first time so went back for more. The food was hot and tasty, didn't bother with delivery as only a 2 minute walk from our cottage. Would definitely go back again.

Stay far, far away from this restaurant. I ordered their Thai green curry and it was like something that came out of an old shoe. The consistency of slime, tasteless, and far too spicy. It was inedible, not to mention one of the most disgusting looking dishes I've ever seen. I love Thai and Chinese food and have ordered green... More

First of all our coke was flat . Prawn crackers were soft and then the food came out it went from bad to worse, noodles were rock hard couldn't letrelly snap them ! Ladies were nice and polite but food was poor! Our last night on holiday we was hoping for a nice meal.
