“Pleasure to dine here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have dined several times at this restaurant, and have found the owners are always pleasant with fast service and excellent food. Very adaptable with any of the dishes you would like, and the outlook onto the Marina is delightful. Love their curry's.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We went mid-week, with a group of 6. The food was good, the atmosphere nice but the service was only average.

“Smart and very high quality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Thai/Laotian specialities were really delicious and beautifully presented. Service was excellent. Located on the marina, so quite a way from the centre, Attracts a very smart yachty set - probably best not to turn up in flipflops and beach shorts! Yet not too expensive for the quality of the whole experience.

“Nice position, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Pleasant setting overlooking the harbour. The food was okay but not special, a little overpriced in comparison to other local Thai/Laotian restaurants. Friendly service and nice decor.
