My husband and I ate here last Wednesday prior to going to a show. We visit the playhouse regularly and always comment on the lovely smells so we were determined to try it as we usually end up grabbing some cheap average pizza or pasta from a chain restaurant.
When we arrived there was only one other couple in a small restaurant, (I believe it goes up over other floors). We noticed that they do a £9.95 2 course dinner including coffee which was great value and once we looked at the choices, it was clear that there was a very wide choice to have for that £9.95.
I had the satay chicken, 2 skewers which were cooked to perfection , really tasty and beautifully presented. Husband had mushroom tom yam soup which he thoroughly enjoyed, we also ordered an additional starter of the noodle vegetable spring rolls which were amazing.
For main we had steak stir fry with thai holy basil and jasmine rice, and also roasted duck with a fabulous sauce again with jasmine rice. We also added a plate of pad thai pak the vegetable version of the pad thai noodles, which again were wonderful. What I would say in particular was that the portion size was generous and everything was seasoned perfectly and really tasty we were so impressed. We shared a half coconut of ice cream (delicious) and had really good coffee included. By the time we had ordered our food, the place began to fill up, which for a cold Wednesday night seemed like a good sign.
Sometimes the portion size of special offer dinners leaves a bit to be desired, but not here, this represented excellent value for money and it was actually one of the best thai meals I have had, so the price was just an extra bonus on the top. The loos were immaculate couldnt have been better, all in all a top experience and really made our night.
