Got a takeaway as we were staying in a caravan nearby. Service was very friendly, food was excellent and they happily made my husband a curry that was from the restaurant menu rather than the takeaway one. Was also very cheap but food was great quality and value!

£5 for a lunch meal, do not let that put you off. You get plenty for your £5, staff friendly meal was filling and tasty with a good selection to choose from.

The ambience is definitely good but the food is not. It doesn't have the Thai essence in it and it's too salty for us. And, we live near Thailand and have been to Thailand several times for their food. This doesn't come close. The saving grace is the service of the waitresses. They are very polite and helpful. The decoration... More

Again visited Stornoway on a Monday when quite a few restaurants were closed but this was recommended after chatting to shop keeper. Went for lunch menu but they were happy to swap a few of the options to suit us, chicken instead of pork sweet and sour for fussy son and veggie red curry for me rather than chicken. Food... More

One of few restaurants open the day we were here. Loved the food very tasty and reasonably priced. Had starters and mains. Didn't try any sweets.

This is a busy little restaurant/takeaway in the centre of Stornoway serving surprisingly good Thai food

I wasn't sure as the cafe looks a bit drab and run down from the outside but was buzzing with diners inside and obviously a popular choice for groups with BYOB option. Enjoyed my takeaway - was brilliant value with large portions. Recommend the Kanom Jeeb (steamed dumplings)!

This is a one of our favourite places to east in Lewis (Hebrides) Such a surprise to see a Thai restaurant in this far away place. Staff are so friendly and helpful and prices are reasonable both for take-away and in the restaurant. Having lived in Thailand for many years we know real Thai food. This restaurant does not disappoint... More

Great service and great food. We often eat Thai food so we can say that it really was very good. Nice change from other available restaurants in the area.
