Brought my teenager here for her birthday and we both loved it. The service was outstanding. I can not wait to return. The food was so good I have been thinking of it ever since. My daughter had crème brulee for dessert and raved about it. Highly recommend to anyone. Great selection of dishes.

We had a really good starter and a main which was a noodle dish followed by a very tasty dessert. What impressed me about the main and dessert was the fresh ingredients. Plus the main had tofu which I normally... More

I had a wonderful Christmas meal here with my Siblings. The staff are top of the range. Very friendly and helpful. Food was first class. Decor is relaxing. Love the big pictures of what I think are Buddhist Monks. Would I return. Yes in a heartbeat.

Very tasty Thai restaurant and well worth popping into. Went for the early bird and had a lovely meal for great value. Busy on Saturday night which as always is a good sign. Just watch the need to book in advance.

I went here on a whim and loved the food. The presentation was beautiful and the taste extraordinary. The decor is OK, nothing to write home about. Small changes, like not having the phone ring in the dining area, could improve the overall experience.
