We regularly attend the quiz night on a Sunday and generally eat here too. The food is consistently good, tasty and the chef is very happy to "customize" meals when asked. Staff are friendly and helpful and I thoroughly recommend the quiz night.

Nice Thai menu - ordered the Red Thai Curry, was pretty hot! Had to wait a while for making our order and waited approx. 50mins for food, but think this was a one-off as the waitress did apologise for the wait. Would certainly go back again, good value when with Taste card!

The food was of a general standard. We booked for a group of 15 people in advance but the food was slow in arriving and there was a long gab in-between courses, which was ok as it afforded us time to have more drinks. I ordered the Massaman Curry for main and having this dish on several occasions in other... More

Decided to travel the distance to go somewhere slightly further afield and what a good decision. Food was amazing, service was with a smile and nothing was too much and the actual decor of the place was lovely. Overall a good experience and would definitely recommend.

We came to eat here on New Year's Eve. The service was excellent Sam was great at recommending what we should eat as some of us were new to tai food. The food was great and the service was superb from start to finish. I will certainly be back!

We had the sharing duck platter as a starter, and it was everything one might expect for duck with pancakes, spring onion, cucumber, pancakes and sauce. All as you would expect, and plenty of it (maybe a little more sauce, please). As we are not experts in Thai food, we tried the Nasi Goreng and Pad Thai. As indicated on... More
