“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Went here for my birthday, staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Cocktails were on a two for one offer and the food was delicious. There are lots of mouthwatering tapas options to choose from with a good selection of vegetarian options. The inside is very well decorated with a relaxed vibe and it was a great place to go for a celebration.

“Nothing not to like........and quite original.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

When I rate a restaurant I give stars in the context of what that restaurant sets out to be. This restaurant sets out to be a downtown Thai restaurant..........and it is a decent one at that. The food was as good as you get in this type of restaurant......... there was a better than average selection of wines, beers and other varieties of "booze"....the service was both friendly and efficient..........and the price was what I would expect, possibly a little less. What makes gives it five rather than four is the concept of "Thai Tapas"! Fab! Num Num all round!!

“Yum yum indeed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Was enticed in as we were given some samples by a charming man outside. We will be regulars, the only thing to ruin it was being placed next to a busy party table

Efficient, fresh, good thai tapas. Great vibe. Glad we spotted this place close by the guildhall. Dived in for a quick bite to eat before a show.
