The waiter was very vague about what was included in the "tapas" menu, but we went ahead anyway. We were expecting a large variety of "small plates"' We got 3 starter dishes - which were fine. Although we had to ask for plates! Then 3 mains arrived that included a mountain of noodles plus a huge bowl of rice. I... More

Really enjoy coming here. Often have Prawn Tempura, Chicken Satay, Pan Fried Chicken & Red Thai Curry. Noodles dishes are great, and there is plenty of different choices to choose from. Personally, I think it is little overpriced but never have any problems with food or staff. Great to come here for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries etc. Sometimes... More

First time to this restaurant in Southsea and it was a nice experience. We opted for an early dinner and the restaurant was quite empty but this soon changed. The service was efficient and we were left pretty much to enjoy our meal without too much fuss. We decided to start with a cocktail and to our surprise, found it... More

Visited here not too long ago and all I can say is wow! The food is brilliant, spicy and full of flavour. The service is just right, left to enjoy your night but well looked after. We were greeted by red head lady on he door who I believe was the manager at the door (sorry I forgot the name!... More

We have been here a few times and are never disappointed. Thai tapas with a variety of dishes on the menu. Can recommend the Taster Menu if you want to try a few of the flavours.

My favourite Thai restaurant on the south coast. I would recommend the The tapas menu, as you get to experience lots of different tasting dishes.

Umpteenth visit and as always food lovely. Unfortunately service lacklustre and underwhelming. Inattentive- it took early half an hour for drinks to arrive, but only after we had reminded them. Gents loos dirty and poor service took shine off a birthday meal.

It is always difficult to select a restaurant that you have visited before when you are entertaining friends to dinner and that is why we use Trip Advisor. This restaurant came up as highly recommended and I must endorse that 100%. If you want good Thai food then this is definitely the place to visit. The young Thai lady who... More
