A small group of us (all adults) went for a birthday dinner. The food was superb and the service second to none. We were a little concerned about previous comments on Tripadvisor but during our evening these fears proved to be groundless. It was an excellent evening and the staff very friendly. Well recommended.

Ate here on Tuesday night on a walk in basis and we were not disappointed. We got the usual Thai friendly welcome. The buffet was on and opted for this and thought it was good quality.
A good choice of salads and starters, plus a range of rices, noodles and meat dishes. There was also a tofu dish. The only complaint I have is the dishes were a bit mild, but I guess they cater for the majority. The food was all hot and looked fresh and tasty.
Desserts were basic but this is expected.
The building is lovely and very well decorated inside. Service was good. Reasonable range of drinks. Total for 2 buffets, juice and 2 beers £41, so reasonable.
Would recommend again.
There is an area where you can have drinks prior to entering restuarant.

One of my all-time favourite Thai restaurants.. Papaya Salad & Tom Yam Soup to die for! Not a big fan of the buffett but a la carte has lots of variety and options... The staff is very friendly and always ready to accomodate requests.

Costs a bit on the higher side but you get a great location, view and a restaurant-like feel and service, rather than a conveyor belt cafe or pizza place!

Visited here on a Friday night without booking ahead. We were offered a choice of the buffet downstairs or the a la carte upstairs. We opted for the later. The building is a delight and we were seated upstairs in a modern conservatory built onto the outside of the original palace like building. We ordered the set menu and a bottle of house red, The starter was a big disappointment. The crispy duck was cold as were the pancakes. We complained about this and an apology was given but no offer to replace or refund. The mains on the other hand were excellent - cheered us up after the initial disappointment. The wine was poor I thought for a house - they could do better in this respect. So a mixed bag - The location is fab and some of the food is excellent - but there is room for improvement.

We visited here tonight for the buffet. Good selection and really nice quality (apart from the 'jelly' for pudding - god knows what that was)!

The drinks were reasonably priced and the buffet was £17.50 each. All in all a good deal and would go again.
