We visited for lunch on Thursday 16th March after a few hours shopping . The restaurant was quite busy but we easily got a table . We only had mineral water to drink as we had a good hours drive home . I really enjoyed the Chicken massaman curry which was almost as good as our local Thai restaurant which... More

However the food is great and as there's so much choice we like eating here as you get try a 'little bit' of several different dishes. Instead of a... More

I've been here a few times before and got by with some nice veggie/vegan options, so decided to stop by for dinner last night. My experience was not the same as before, there was hardly anything vegetarian let alone vegan, and the flavours were not right in anything! I started with the papaya salad with some of the salad bar... More

Fri lunchtime visit, soup was very good, salad and hot dishes average to good, but desserts disapointing. Soft drinks were expensive, looks like we got large versions of drinks without asking for them, suggest you make a point of specifying drink sizes or do as several people round us and ask for a jug of tap water.
