“Excellence throughout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely everything was fantastic - from the warm welcome to the delicious food. Nothing was too much trouble for our attentive hosts. The food was freshly cooked and it was no trouble to adapt dishes to accommodate specific dietary requirements and preferences. If you are in Blackpool, this restaurant is a must.

“Authentic and super tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Arrived and was very quiet for a Sunday night but was greeted by a friendly waitress.

The decor has some hints of Thailand but does need a bit more work I would say. The roof tiles were not very attractive and the lighting could be improved for a better atmosphere.

Onto the food and the mixed started for two was excellent. I've recently come back from Thailand and the starters were on par with the food over there. Really tasty and the dipping sauces excellent. Onto the main and I had the roasted duck Phanaeng, my girlfriend the green chicken curry both with steamed jasmine rice. Both dishes were superb, not too rich and delicately flavoured. I would like to see some cheaper smaller veg side dishes (cheapest was £6.50, but was a main) and some more main dish soups with some heat. However, I would definitely be back and recommend. The best Thai I've had in the UK.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

The food was absolutely divine. We went on a friday night as a walk in. It was quiet but it always is in blackpool this time of year. As a local i will certainly be coming back! I think i may have found my new favourite restaurant. The service was brill. The drinks are a bit pricey for my liking but the food is definitely reasonably priced so it makes up for it.

“Ok is as good as it gets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

On the good side the portions were just right, the food was nicely cooked, and prices were fair.
However, the service was a bit slow and the food was very "safe" in the flavouring.
The medium strength dish was disappointing, I think they must have reduced the chilli to suit the English market, but for me, it didn't work.
