This is one of my families favourites. Always friendly service and amazing food! They make the best crispy chicken for my daughter and Gluten Free Options are brilliant!

Had a very good meal, very authentic, very much like in Thailand. First class Larb, red curry and Pad Thai. Dish size is generous and you could easily share two dishes between three. The service was good and the owner is absolutely charming. The TripAdvisor...More
