I came across this place when I diverted off the M1 to avoid a traffic jam. Such an unexpected surprise to find this incredible Restaurant. The food was absolutely fantastic. Service was attentive but not intrusive. It was quite busy and I was on my own, so the waitress sat me in a quiet corner of the restaurant. This was... More

Great service, great setting, and the best Thai food I have ever tasted. The prawn toast for starters is to die for, exquisite. And all for a very very reasonable price. Great food without breaking the bank. Outstanding

I have now eaten dinner here twice and on both occasions the staff were incredibly welcoming, polite and attentive from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Nothing was too much trouble. Their menu is packed with an amazing selection of Thai dishes which are cooked freshly, presented beautifully and without any exaggeration, tasted out of this world.... More

My title says it all. Staff, menu, taste & value, all excellent. I opted for the Indian menu this visit so will have to go back to sample the Thai menu.

Only recently ate here even though we have lived nearby for many years. The waiting staff were friendly and extremely attentive. The food was fabulous!! I always thought it was expensive to eat here but we actually found it very reasonable. The dining room was decorated nicely with good quality furniture and cutlery. We will definitely be returning, and soon!

We live nearby and wanted to try Little India after having been to Blue Orchid couple of times. We ordered our drinks, but there was a bit of a delay until we could order our food. We had mushroom bhaji and paneer jalfrezi for starters, which were tasty, but the mushroom one was pretty small. The poppadums and chutneys very... More

They have two different menus here, one Thai and one Indian. we ate two nights of each and the food from both menus... More

I booked a table for six and we all ordered Set Menu B with a couple of additional dishes from the Thai menu. We split the starters between the mixed plate and the crispy duck options to add to the variety. All of the food was excellent. Good quantity and quality and everyone went away satisfied, especially with the chicken... More
