Came with my friend for dinner after an amazing massage. Very friendly and cozy Thai space. Food is very tasty!!! The seabass and the mango salad where outstanding.

The restaurant is for Al-Fresco dining, with warm light and fans comfortable enough for March season. We came in big party 10 pax, so we were given a long table adjoined to one octagon shape of table at the side very near to kitchen. The atmosphere was great, free wifi was available. The service staff was prompt and helpful. Lady... More

I really enjoy this restaurant but not sure I should really be writing a review as I have never eaten a main course there. The tapas style starters are just so good that I and friends just go through the card and then if still hungry pick a couple of really good ones and order those again. The only trouble... More

This, for me, is way down the pecking order of restaurants in the area. Probably just not my type of food...too many indescribible greens heaped on the plate. Restaurant is also overly warm which I found uncomfortable. Smokers were also allowed to smoke at the table which I find a real turn off. I am afraid this place doesn't tick... More

There were a lot of 'regular' customers who were greeted with smiles etc... by I didn't feel that our treatment was in any way superior.... as... More

An interesting place with well made fusion food for the most part. Can get by with a selection of tapas. No need to order main course. Service was most disappointing. We felt like we were newcomers to a family club run by stale locals with a bad attitude. As regular guests were being greeted with the nicest of smiles and... More

Nice place, good food, hospitable staff, may be a bit expensive. Dinner time better to book a table, otherwise may be have to wait for some time...
