I visited this restaurant with three work colleagues for dinner. The food was really tasty and beautifully presented, the staff unobtrusive yet efficient, and prices reasonable. I did find the place a little chilly and I saw that after we'd moved to our table, they brought in a fan heater for the reception area. The garden seems to have a... More

We dined with friends, had a lovely evening. Made to feel so welcome, hospitality is second to none and the food is excellent. Love the ambiance, perfect for romantic meal for two or an evening out with family and friends and reasonably priced too. Highly recommend. P.S We've been to the Thai in Woburn as well, but in our opinion... More

This place was close to my hotel, I was looking forward to a nice Thai meal, but in reality I was quite disappointed. I asked for my dish extra hot, but if that was the best they could do they shouldn't bother. Duck starter was nice, but very Chinese rather than Thai ! I don't do Thai very often and... More

Gorgeous food whether you eat in or out. Food cooked from fresh very quickly, but very comfortable waiting area anyway. We rate the Thai food a little above the Indian, but the Indian is good too. Two main course dishes and 2 noodle and rice dishes comes to about £18-20 and is very good value as it's so good.

We have visited this restaurant twice in the past year, when staying at the nearby Moore Place hotel. It offers both Thai and Indian menus. We chose the Thai menu. The food was good, delicately flavoured. Crispy duck starter very nice. Service very efficient and pleasant. It gets busy in the evening, so I would recommend booking.

I had dinner here recently while staying that the hotel next door. It was relatively late and there were only two other people dining (and finishing their meal) so I thought that perhaps the service might be abrupt or rushed - it was not. Very friendly and thoughtful. I opted for the Thai specialties and they were as good as... More

We were invited to join friends who are regular clients and although I've lived nearby for over 10 years I can't think why this was my first visit. The food tasted great, while service was excellent, discrete and unobtrusive. I'm not a Thai food expert, so we opted for one of the set meals (B) and added crispy duck as... More
