Sterling marks for decoration and style of service, food is average and sometimes not nice. Expensive for small portions, yet it's not fine dining. This might be just the vegetarian offering as all the other reviews are so positive.

Food is authentic Thai and very good; lamb pad khee mao and kaeng ba were especially tasty and well done. My wife, who is Thai, also thought the food was very good.

We enjoyed our meal, really lovely red curry served in a crazy bird shaped dish. The staff seemed a bit cross though, and the service felt a bit abrupt. The setting is amazing, beautiful carvings everywhere and lovely decor

First thing you notice when you walk in to this place is the amount of carved woodwork - elephants galore. It's a big restaurant - it doesn't look it but once inside you realise there are spaces to eat all over the shop. Food is lovely. I like Thai but I do find this is particularly tasty.

We decided on the spur of a moment one evening to visit for a meal. No booking, but they said that was fine and sat us straight away. Staff were attentive at all times and polite. Great selection of food and good description of each dish. We didn't have to wait long for our food either after placing the order.... More

I've been here a couple of times and would recommend it. The service is good and the food is delicious. The decor is also very nice and contributes to a good overall atmosphere. The only downside is that the portion sizes are too small, in my opinion.

Excellent food and service, such a beautiful venue especially the carvings and the koi carp add an extra feature. Best Thai around
