“Not recommended - expensive and pretty poor overall”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Expensive, we paid £31 a head which by my standards is a lot for a "neighbourhood Thai". The food was pretty poor overall, I had one dish that was delicious - a beef salad, but the soup was sweet and lacking in flavour or bite, the curry sloppy and tasteless and the sticky rice served unappetisingly in plastic wrapping! Of the 8 people in my party only one of us thought the food good, most feeling it was overpriced and didn't taste fresh and zingy the way one expects a Thai to taste.
The service was distinctly erratic - one waitress was smiley and helpful but the second was actually rude and hostile. We were hurried through our courses with menus thrust under our noses to order the next course even before we'd finished the previous.
Overall I can't understand why this place has good online reviews. I would not go again and would not recommend to anyone.

“Wonderful neighbourhood Thai”

Excellent quality local Thai restaurant with warm, attentive staff. First choice for delivered food in the wider area too.

Fantastic restaurant. The food is always great. The staff are really friendly - and look great in their traditional dress. Inexpensive too. Have eaten hear loads of times and never had a bad experience.
