Last night it was busy as ever around 9 pm but we had quick an friendly service and as usual delicious dishes. Last night we greatly enjoyed the crispy duck and sizzling chicken. Hot spicy soups are also a great favourite of ours. This restaurant goes from strength to strength. We love it.

This is an excellent and quiet Thai Restaurant situated about ten minutes walk from the town centre. Both the food and service was so good that my wife and I dined here on two consecutive evenings during our visit to the island At the time of our visit, the owners of the establishment had just applied for their alcohol license....

The food is outstanding. The ambiance is not so quiet and could be a bit more authentic. Watch the prices of wine, they have no wine list offered us the choice of 2 bottle sand tried to charge £28 for a bottle of average red. Apart from this the food is brilliant.

We ate here twice during TT week. Think this is a fairly new venture and they are still sorting some things out! First time it was completely full and the very friendly and pleasant staff were struggling a little to cope. Our meal arrived over the space of 5 minutes which meant some of it was going cold before everything... More

Came for diner with a friend, we sat in corner by the window. Good was tasty, would say the portion sizes were a bit small. Staff were friendly but could have been more attentive. Kind of felt as though we were in a grandmother's front room due to the decor and atmosphere.

Starters were lovely but duck for main very dry. Small portions for the price, have seen better value elsewhere
