Lighting is terrible, food is average, service was ok. There is nothing special about this place. It needs a re vamp to compete with today's current market

We had a family meal which was very good, we had a mixture of dishes, very plentiful and extremely tasty. The staff were welcoming and polite, and we look forward to our next visit, it's well worth a visit.

My husband really enjoyed the Thai lemongrass ribs. Very meaty & tasty. He then had Thai red curry which he said lovely. I had chinese special mixed meat with mushroom. Plenty of food. Large portions. We both perhaps disliked having sticky lumpy rice !

Takeaway is restaurant standard. The staff and delivery drivers are so friendly. The dishes are amazing especially Thai, we go here all the time now for our takeaways and cant wait to get a babysitter to go to the restaurant. Fantastic cannot say enough! : )
