$14 calamari was notable for it being mostly thick batter and almost completely absent of calamari. Very disappointed.

Great welcoming staff. Very quick and proficient. We ordered a few starters and some small dishes and shared between 2 adults and 2 children. Best Thai we've had in a long time! Recommend the pork belly and the salt and pepper squid!

From the outside I was sceptical about this place, however the staff were so accommodating even though we didn’t have a booking. The food was also incredible, we had the satay chicken, pad-se-ew, masaman beef and chilli basil stir fry. All the dishes were quickly...More
