This was a pleasant Thai meal for four without a booking. Our first option was intolerable due to noise and walking in to this cafe was much more comfortable in terms of the noise level. The decor was plain with an older, high-ceiling room. The tables were clean with white tablecloths. Service was prompt and meals served quickly from a... More

The food tastes really good but the price was comparable to those in nicer places. This restaurant's ambiance isn't great and looks a little dirty. Service was good though

Dined here early Saturday night with the family. Service is prompt with a good selection on the menu. Had the Crispy Beef & Garlic & Pepper Squid. Both had great flavours we all enjoyed them. Could do with cleaning up the toilet area out the back outside of that enjoyed the experience.

Have eaten here several times and never disappointed. Great Thai food at a reasonable price. Service is also very quick. The Tom Yum Soup is one of the best I've ever had.

This place has the potential to be fantastic but for the moment it continues to be a disappointment. The wait staff need more training and discernment (delivering cutlery, scanning the room, checking up, etc) Organization overhaul is required in the kitchen. We were seated fairly quickly, despite the busy evening. Wobbly tables are a pet peeve for me - just... More

Very disappointing is being kind. The nicest thing I can say was the plates were warm. We ordered and were barely half way through our entrees when my main arrived. They took it away and after we had finished our entrees the same main came back lukewarm. The table we were given swivelled about and also rocked on its centre... More

Very bland average pad thai. With very little chicken in it. Thankfully there was a dry slice of lemon that i managed to get a little juice out of to lift the flavour slightly. My wife had a hot spicy dragon curry that was more like a bowl of almost raw veggies with a stock poured over it...and deffo not... More

We went during the Fringe and they were far to busy from the get go. I ordered a chicken mango salad and whilst the chicken was nice the salad was soaking in a sweet n salty liquid. My wife ordered the duck special and it was dry and salty. We were sat at a table with no cutlery and no... More

We ate here on a Saturday night before a Fringe show and the food was great.Service was average, but when we arrived they were flat out, so there you go. Entrees were superb, the curry puffs are to die for. The mains were really good and full of meat and spicy as it should be. This is a pricey eatery... More
