I prefer Asian food where you can see and taste the component parts of the dishes rather than having a processed gloop and that's what you get here.
I heard my salmon starter arriving before I saw it - three large chunks of fish still sizzling in the serving dish. It was beautifully moist with a delicate smoky flavour. My partner's prawn dish was a large portion of the shellfish in a well flavoured sauce.
For main dishes we ordered lamb shank and a fish dish described as 'spicy'. I did ask whether spicy = hot but our waiter, lovely as he was, didn't seem to grasp the differentiation I was trying to make. As it was, the answer was, yes, spicy does mean hot - and then some. Sadly, for me, it was just too hot for me to appreciate all the other flavours that were undoubtedly there. The shank was huge, falling off the bone tender and smothered in a chunky sauce. Lime rice was an unusual but wonderfully fragrant side dish along with aubergines and a couple of breads.
No idea about desserts because we were too full. We asked for a doggy bag and the remains of our meal were neatly packaged with no problems.
We ate on a Thursday night and the restaurant was disappointingly empty apart from another birthday group. A place such as this deserves to be busy every night of the week. The outside of the building is spectacularly unattractive and this might put some people off. We ate using the Tastecard and our bill was just under £35 for two including drinks. And that was choosing more expensive dishes - even without the card you can have a very good meal here for around the same price. We will certainly return.
