Came here on Monday 07/01 for partners birthday booked with table pouncer so 50% off all food. Was seated quickly and felt a little uncomfortable as we were the only customers in the restaurant but to be expected after christmas. Wasn't so bad once the music was turned on. Ordered dim sum and crab for starters and curries for our mains. Food arrived promptly and tasted lovely. But didn't feel the was much of a good vibe, and staff weren't particularly friendly. Had to ask twice for the bill, and then had to send the bill back to remind them I booked with table pouncer. But for £23 including drinks can't really complain! Lovely food but not sure I'd go again.

We came here quite by accident, all other restaurants close by were shut! We were very glad we did. It was one of the best Thai curries we had had. There were four discerning Thai food lovers, and we were all very pleasantly surprised by our orders. The curries were full of flavour, not too heavy and we were very satisfied! We will certainly be visiting again!

A friend and I visited this restaurant on a Friday evening, following a search on Tastecard. There were no Tastecard reviews before my visit, but several reviews of the restaurant on Trip Advisor. The reviews were generally good, we wanted to eat Thai food and use our Tastecard, and so we booked without problem.

The restaurant is in a busy part of Bournemouth near to the pier, but we managed to park close by in a multi-story car park without problem. We had a warm welcome on arrival and were shown with a smile to our table. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere with several other diners on arrival and many more arriving later. Atmosphere was relaxed with others enjoying their meals and company.

We started with Thai Tom Yum Soup, the highlight of the meal...the flavours absolutely delicious. We followed this with two starters to share, Tepura Vegetables (good) and Thai Fishcakes (disappointing), followed by sharing Thai Chicken Green Curry and Ped Pad Phed both with different rice (both lovely). We were enjoying our meal so much that we decided to go for desserts; those were naughty, but good! :-)

Service was friendly, attentive, but unobtrusive.
Using our Tastecard gave us a 50% discount off food, so the final bill for our meal with a glass of wine and a tonic each was just over £40, the Tastecard saving us £20. Good value.

Recommended, we will go there again.

Decided to go here for dinner on our night in Bournemouth. If I'm honest if we were walking past the restaurant looking for somewhere to eat i probably wouldn't have gone in (it doesn't look great from the outside) however we'd booked and needed to get inside to shelter from the torrential rain. I'm so glad we did, the food is great and reasonably priced. The service was efficient and good. And the atmosphere inside was "buzzing". Definitely worth a visit.

We have eaten here several times & always enjoy the food, which is beautifully cooked & presented.
The service is a bit slow, & sometimes your meals don't all turn up at the same time, but the over all experience is a good one.
I recommend the vietnamese spring rolls, they are delicious, as are the king prawns!
If I have to nit pick, I think finger bowls should be given for fingery food like crispy duck pancakes & king prawns, and they don't have the usual hotplates to keep your food warm.( Not really a problem, the food is so good you eat it all up pretty quickly !! )
