“Lovely little Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Lovely food, service was impeccable, good value for money, good size portions. Very pleased! Only thing it lost a point on was the atmosphere, because we were the only two people in there! However, once people hear about it more it should perk up. Well worth a visit.

“First time here, impressed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

First time to this new restaurant. On a main road, rather small, this place probably makes its money more from takeaways rather than sit in dining.

We had aromatic duck, satay chicken and royal dim sum to start. Everything was lovely, we received a large portion of crispy, juicy duck and extra pancakes just in case we needed them. Extra hoisin sauce was offered to us also.

We had salmon in a red curry sauce, and a chicken, potato, pineapple and peanut curry for our mains. Both were delicious. The maître d' offered to pack our leftovers as a 'doggy bag' in a takeaway container for us at the end of the meal.

The ambience was fine for a small place. They had some chilled out music in the background and the decor was nice.

Would either dine in or takeaway from them again for sure.

“Just Good Thai food It smells and taste like the Mother Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is the first time trying this restaurant, I can't believe that the smell and taste reminds me so much of Thailand. I have been there twice so-fare in total 5 Weeks in all. I loved the food a lot, if I was being critical I would say the Tempura could have been a bit lighter and the Salad was not HOT enough in Thailand the Salad is so HOT it's something that you never forget so I will ask for it to be hotter next time.
If you are like me bored of all the takeaways this is a must.

Ps I had takeaway but can't fine an option for this on the site. But I do think this Restaurant is a must.

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This Thai restaurant is a fairly new addition to the Hemel Hempstead restaurant scene and I have now visited it on several occasions and have not been disappointed yet. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic. I seriously recommend this restaurant if you haven't tried yet. You wont be disappointed..

“Saturday Night, only two in restaurant all night.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We tried this restaurant on Saturday night. We always like to make up our own minds on restaurants. Being Thai food lovers we booked a table the day before. When we got there we were the only table, and it stayed that way until we left later the evening. There was one Polish waitress, another Thai waitress that came out of the kitchen twice just to look out of the window.
We had the pleasure of hearing a big row in in the kitchen with the chefs. We thought, at least the service would be good. You would think wouldn't you...... No... We was given 6-8 crackers and eventually had to ask for the chilly dip. We ordered starters and some dinner dishes to share. We thought the choice was poor, and the standard of the food was no where near the quality of the Thai at the top of the high street. We had a nice bottle of wine, that was the best part of the meal. When asked for the bill, was not asked if we wanted anything else. With so much choice within a mile radius of this restaurant I can see this restaurant being closed before Christmas. oh... Two takeaway's were sent out for delivery whilst we was there. How can a restaurant survive when on they only have two customers and two takeaways on a Saturday night. We wont be back... find it hard to see how someone said it was excellent... Make your own minds up.
