A warm welcome and shown to our table quickly. Drinks offered along with the Menu. A decent interval was given before orders were taken. A suitable time then elapsed indicating this was freshly cooked (and no 'Ding' was heard from a dreaded microwave). The starters...More

Great atmosphere, lovely food, friendly welcome. Well run, slick operation. If you have to endure the delights of Basingstoke, this is a good place. Courteous staff, mainly Thai, that helps. Very keen to please. Intimate rooms and tables, especially upstairs. Kind of Bistro style.

Thank you Revduncan for taking the trouble to write this review. I am particularly pleased to see a lunchtime review as our lunch service is generally less well known than our dinner service.

Hi, I'm really keen to visit at lunch time, possibly over the next few days/weeks as I have heard great things. I have had a look at the menu online, and I like the sound of a lot of the dishes on offer although I am quite a fussy eater and dislike most sauces and certain ingredients - I was wondering if certain dishes could be served without particular ingredients/sauces and whether certain dishes can be customised according to likes/dislikes. Would it be a problem for you to customise dishes or remove sauces, or would this be possible when I visit? Thank you very much in advance for your help, J386.

Thank you for your enquiry. We do try to cater for special requests but some sauces are an integral part of the dish and may be difficult to remove. It might be better for you to tell us what you do like and we'll see what... More
