“Great Value - not flash, but good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We dine here very regularly, and have no expectations other than a top quality Thai meal, at very reasonable prices. Yes, it is true that sometimes the wait can be a bit long, but I have to ask, how long is too long if the food is excellent? This is good Thai food prepared by a Thai family with all attention to the right flavours and spices. While waiting, just try a bottle of one of the many Martinborough wines they have on offer. I find it amazing that for a simple restaurant/take away just how extensive the wine list is. And the wine prices are very reasonable - the place could easily become a cult wine bar!!

“Takeaways have precedence”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

We went for dinner on the night before the Martinborough Fair and had to wait far too long to have our meal. Because we had nothing else to do we stayed but many did not. It appeared to us that the takeaway business is the restaurant's bread and butter and as such took precedence and those dining just had to wait. The meal when it finally did arrive though was very tasty
