Nice polite staff, thanks for that. Our starter salad Som Tom Je was delicious and authentic, so I had high hopes for the mains. I'm sorry to say that neither one of our dishes even resembled Thai cuisine. Thai Basil could make it but they don't. I can guess why - but what are we really asking for when we... More

After a slow start on a busy Saturday night, and after asking twice for drinks, our order was eventually taken.The food arrived after over an hour. It was beautifully presented, piping hot and generous portions. The set meal A for 2 was fantastic value and everything was exceptional. The staff were very smiley and apologetic for the wait but looked... More

We chose the set meal, it was delicious. Mixed starters were fabulous even though the beef salad was one of the spiciest dishes I have ever tasted!! The main course was superb & we could not manage the desert. Worth going back to Bath just to visit this restaurant.

Best Thai in Bath, easily. Also our most visited restaurant in Bath, good friendly service and delicious food. Best dishes in our opinion Mussaman, Penang and anything from the duck section!

Thai stir fried noodles are one of my favourite dishes, this restaurant serves really great ones. Felt like i was back on Khao San Road in Bangkok ;)

We go here often and it's always a great experience. This time we had Pad Thai, Panang Gai with chicken and Duck with Tamarind. The food is so tasty and enough of it to satisfy even a hungry diner. Great value for money and incredibly consistent quality. I try the other Thai restaurants in Bath from time to time but... More

Dinner with the girls, we shared two salt and pepper squid starters - beautifully cooked, crispy coating and deliciously soft on the inside. Yum. Two of us had the river prawn with mango, chili and lime dressing and it was delicious. The spices made your mouth tingle. Our other friend had a duck dish which she loved. Overall, a great... More

Excellent service. Great food. Well priced. Very enjoyable evening. If we had stayed in Bath longer, we would have gone back.
