We dropped in casually on a Tuesday night and were more than pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and the service attentive. The star for me was the cold beef salad starter which reminded me of my trips to Thailand. It was sweet flavoursome and very spicy - exactly the flavours that you want to have. The seafood soup...

Really enjoyed our visit - friendly staff and authentic Thai food and drinks. Make sure you book as it is small and popular with locals as well as tourists.

Service was good. The atmosphere was busy and enjoyable. Tiny little place and was full to the brim. The food was tasty and plentiful. Good for an evening meal with friends.

The restaurant is quite small and tightly packed, the first table we were shown to had a Parker hood hanging into my wife's face from a neighbouring chair. The staff are excellent and the food was very good. It was extremely busy with people being turned away. Would definitely advise booking.

The vegetarian sharing platter was really very impressive and the portion sizes are large. However, the quality of the chicken in the curry seemed a little cheap considering the high prices. The rose wine I had tasted really cheap as well. Lastly the service was quite cold and unhelpful. I've eaten at many Thai restaurants and this definitely has been... More

Visited on race day so restaurant very busy, showed to a table within 20 minutes and made very welcome by all the wait staff who were polite and very attentive even with the Restaurant being at capacity. Food arrived in very good time and was of exceptional standards. Would highly recommend a visit.

A really nice small restaurant. Great menu and friendly service. All our meals (6) were first class, beautifully presented and plentiful. Washed down with a couple of Thai beers! Very very tasty. Will definitely return.

Excellent vegetarian selection and there is a vegetarian set menu which has generous Yorkshire portions. The location is good and there is free street parking in the evening. The venue is small but the tables are ranged so that you are all comfortable and I did not find other tables' conversation intrusive. The toilets are rather basic. A very comfortable... More
