“All you can eat to your table. Great value. Regular visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Regular courses take me to the area.
Apart from eating in the hotel this is where I tend to go. You can fill up and not empty your pockets
Will go again and would recommend its a favourite with others who visit area

“Banana Leaf.... Thai?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I would have liked to have given a 'good' rating but unfortunately there is only the option for average or very good. My problem is it claims to be Thai but is actually owned by the Chinese next door; my friend lived in Thailand for 4 years and I myself have visited several times, my friend speaks the language fluently but when he tried to coverse with them they didn't understand a word he said, the food is nicely cooked but is NOT authentic, kind of an English take on the real thing. Service is good and food looks and tastes nice, however, like I said, if you've been to Thailand it's not exactly authentic.

“Amazing food for a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have been going to this restaurant for years (10 plus,) i go even more so now as thye have introduced all you can eat Sushi to the menu.

The staff are always friendly and the food is freshly cooked brought to your table piping hot.

For the price you cannot go wrong!

I am yet to experience a bad visit!

Highly recommended!
