“Great value, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

After taking my wife horse riding for our anniversary I decided to go here for lunch as we both like Thai and had tried nearly all the mountains restaurants. We were not dissapointed. Very friendly service, lunch menu was good, very cheap if a little small. We ordered of the main menu though and probably could have done with having another two people sit at our table to finish the food that came! Coconut rice was to die for`and the thai beef salad had really good flavour. Would have liked the beef cut a little thinner but then I am picky like that. Beautiful restaurant with good atmosphere even on a quiet lunch and better value and service than a lot of mountains restaurants.

“great take away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had take away from here and all 11 of us were very happy with what we ordered. When we went to pick it up we saw that the restaurant was a lovely old home. We will be eating in house when we are back again. We has 9 rices of three different flavours and 10 dishes of five mains and it cost $171. That is great value.

“Charming and attentive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Whilst we were unable to actually stay here we eat in the Thai restaurant in the property. The owner Katherine charming and exceeding helpful regarding seeing the area from a different angle. The Thai restaurant had a lovely setting in the historic building. The food quality didn't meet expectations. Service attentive but the preparation and quality needs more attention. Flavours fine and portions satisfactory yet the way the peppers or other vegetables cut was lacking with huge slugs rather than being nicely diced. It would have been useful to have a guide on how hot certain dishes were as one of ours blew your head off! That said promising establishment for food. Big question is who it fits with a lovely classical guest house. The dining room is superb enjoying lovely views and somehow cries out a more classic European cuisine, one much needed in Blackheath where good middle price dining is lacking!
