The atmosphere at Relax was fantastic, the host Benson was attentive, funny and genuinely warm and pleased to see you. We returned three times, and tried various filipino dishes which were all beautifully cooked and great value. Try the Katsu curry (extra spicy if you dare!).. You will find Relax tucked away in the alley behind 'Big Apple', just ask... More

The food was fantastic, easily the best staff I've ever had the pleasure to serve me in a restaurants. The prices are great, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. They are no longer a Thai restaurant though.

The menu is very refreshing especially with the warm feel of the place.
