What a lovely restaurant!! The manager was so polite and the staff were so helpful. We have eaten many Thai foods and i have to say it has to be one of the best, if not the best, compliments to the chef. We will be going again!!

Had lunch here as part of a spa package. Very good Thai food with some excellent smoothies. Service is very good and well worth including as part of a visit to the spa.

I popped to lunch here with my other half before a quick treatment and the food was as fresh and delicious as it's ever been. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys Thai food ... My tastebuds didn't want lunch to end!
