“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Tasty food and good service, not a massive menu, but perfectly ok. The bottled water was lovely, if a little expensive. Ten percent off food if you are staying with lake lovers.

“Tasty food - it was OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had a good meal, the food was very tasty.

The tables felt a little crammed in and close, and there was a lot of noise, we were the socially balanced couple sat between a table of ADHD socialites and a maturer couple who clearly had nothing to say to each other and appeared somewhat initimidated by the other table. This was not the fault of the restaurant, but just the way it was on the night.

The menu had plenty of choice, however we felt the prices didn't reflect good value for money and have had better, however this could be relative to the area and surrounding restaurants.

“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were disappointed with the food on offer at this restaurant. the service was very nice, if not a little over friendly. the portions were very small for the price, and the dishes just lacked the fresh buzz of authentic Thai food. Whether its pandering to the the western palette, or just unable to use authentic ingredients. Drinks were incredibly expensive too.
