“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I am away for business and enjoy cooking and dining out; this is by far the best place around the Alton area to eat.
The food options are very good and have asked if they could make me stuff off the menu which they have!
The staff are very friendly and is always available if you require anything the restaurant is very clean with all the Thai artefacts on the wall adding to the ambiance.
The value for money is good and the quality of ingredients is very good.
I have visited this place a number of times and will be going there until I leave Alton area.

“As it was 15 years ago”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Same tired decor as 15 years ago
Same boring menu
Same poor service
Admittedly it does of well but it's so predictable and anything but welcoming. In need of a make over, younger management with vision and a clean!

“Very enjoyable”

An evening meal with my youngest son , we were a walk in but it was early on a Friday , no problem and our hosts were as convivial as ever . Having tried Thais elsewhere within 20 miles of here, this is the one I rate , food and ambience lovely .
