Visited on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was not that busy, which made me slightly apprehensive. No need I think it may have been the best Thai food I've ever had, service was great as well and all at a reasonable price.

Great selection of food which was bought to the table piping hot, not greasy and very tasty. We sat upstairs which was much better as it was a very warm evening and not so claustrophobic.

Not the biggest portions I've had but with the Tastecard 2-4-1 it was a cheap night out. The girl serving us was very friendly and it was easy to book and we were able to get in early. When I went to the toilet I saw that the tiles on the kitchen floor were very dirty and it had only... More
