Been here at least 5 times in the last few years (Dad's favourite) and haven't been disappointed ever! Great menu and food, lunch and evening meal both great! Lovely Thai decor and the service is always good. Recommended highly. Thank you!

My partner and I attended this restaurant for a birthday meal with a large group of people. Upon arrival, we were greeted by two members and staff and shown to our seats. The premises is typical of thai restaurants. Lots of ornate decorations with the theme flowing onto the tables and chairs, lots of gold and rich wood. The most... More

A nice quiet restaurant although lacking a bit on atmosphere on the night we visited. Friendly, attentive staff and good food. Would recommend the duck pancakes to start!

Ordered takeaway last night. A very mixed bag. The dim sum were tasty and the soy accompaniment was nice. The chicken and prawn toasts were full and crispy but no prawn was evident at all.

We ordered a variety of starters which included satay chicken, the sauce is so good it's never enough. Their special rice is a meal in it's own right, we also had Pad Thai, and 2 fish dishes between 3 of us. The... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a birthday meal(first visit), food was really good, we ordered chilly beef, crispy duck and river prawns with rice plus deserts. But after the meal we both had food poisoning symptoms.. Will not be going back.
