Popped in here while on a break in Folkestone. Thai food is our favourite although we love Chinese and Indian too and it was really nice to see a mixture of Asian cuisines and we tried some lovely dishes that we'd never had before. Staff are really nice and helpful. And it was reasonably priced too.

In the centre of town, it's small & intimate. The staff are nice & friendly, but the best bit is the food itself. The taste was very authentic and the portions were just right. This place is a real gem in the heart of Folkestone.

We went there with friends and enjoyed the meal. A bit dark room but nice hospitality. We took some dim sun and noodle soup.

Although we have been to this restaurant a coupe of times, we were very pleased to see that the menu and service have improved a lot. We went for dinner with a friend and we were all very impressed with the quality of the food and the good service. It won't be long for us to go back for more...

What a fabulous restaurant! Food was delicious tasty and plenty of chicken in the curry. Waitress was very attentive and cheerful. Well decorated restaurant, light and airy. Really enjoyed our meal there and will be visiting again soon.
