Having enjoyed good quality take away food we visited the restaurant for a sit down meal. This is a popular local restaurant so booking is advisable. The interior is very simply furnished however service is attentive and the food is delicious. Set meals offer a great variety.

I ordered a take away meal from this restaurant on a Friday night at around 6 pm, so they weren't busy and the food should have been fresh as it was the start of the evening. The staff were gruesome - 3 women who didn't smile once and were quite aggressive and rude whenever they spoke. I could cope with... More

Tried out this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. Lovely food and friendly service. It was almost full when we arrived which is always a good sign but we were shown to the last table for 2. Pace of service was perfect....not too slow or too rushed. Food was scrummy and the portion sizes for 2 were... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and never once been disappointed. The food is simple Thai/Malaysian and Indonesian dishes adjusted slightly (by lighter spicing generally for European tastes). The portions are on the generous side and the service is very good. What makes this restaurant stand out is the pricing - it is just exceptionally good value. Where... More

We have always ended up taking away doggie bags as we love lots of the wonderful dishes they serve and ordering more than we can eat.!Either that or I am just greedy and want some more the next day.
