“Great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Eaten here many times and never disappointing. Staff are friendly and helpful and always willing to do something off menu. Good wine list.
Great for a group.

“Recycled food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The food was good however I was extremely shocked to see that the lettuce and carrots not eaten were reused on other customers. Sorry but I shall not be eating here again.

“Poor quality, expensive. Wouldn't recommend for take away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We ordered a take out for two for a nice quiet sat night in.....very disappointed with this choice of restaurant.
Honey spare ribs £5.95, just fatty miniature pieces.
Veg tempura was just soggy cauliflower and broccoli.
The Massaman curry at £12.95 was tasteless runny and full of oil.
Pad phric chicken, greasy and submerged in chilli, no taste of lemongrass or even remotely Thai.
The rice was so disappointing it was so bland and very much like long grain. we ordered a coconut £3.80 and jasmine rice £3.25 though couldn't really tell them apart, no taste of coconut and looked like a a mixed of Chinese special rice with carrots through it. The whole order was a big disappointment expensive and poor quality and we felt ripped off. At £40 for two a cold bad quality Thai delivery on a sat eve is def not worth it. I wouldn't waste your money, or spoil your evening.

“Not great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The restaurant is in a nice building with lots of charachter, sadly on a saturday night it was pretty empty, not much atmosphere. The service was terrible with numerous mistakes and long waits despite there being more staff than customers. The food was passable but nothing special at all, small portions, tired ingredients and dull presentation. Won't be going back as much better is available close by. It was also poor value and unfriendly.

“Old and failing restaurant that's poor value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Thin acidic rose and enamel-eating prosecco was just the start. After a lecture about not getting the table damaged, we then had exceedingly slow service, two wrong orders, inedible food, and non-existent water top ups. The lighting was dreadful, but even that couldnt improve the ambience, while the 'Greek' loos (ie toilet tissue in the basket pls as cistern is broken) put the cherry on top. Very nasty experience. An old restaurant clearly past its prime.
