“Too stretched”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Food was good enough. Not the best Thai I have eaten but good value for what you get. Unfortunately, the staff are finding it hard to keep up with the reputation that this restaurant has earned. Our starters arrived promptly but I expect that they have them stacked up and ready to go, as they were very popular dishes. We then had to wait almost an hour for our main course before the waiter eventually looked a bit sheepish and scuttled into the kitchen. The main then arrived within 5-10 minutes, so we suspect that our order had been forgotten. During the waiting period, the telephone rang almost constantly with takeaway orders and the kitchen produced bag after bag of takeaway food. The people who came in to collect their orders were quite unpleasant with no regard for the privacy or comfort of people eating their meals. At one point, a couple of guys were standing up either side of our table, talking loudly to each other over our heads. We then had to wait ages for our bill. I will probably order a takeaway from here in the future but I would never eat here again.

“Very good thai food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Very tasty food.Very good service and excellent value. Priced very reasonable - take away prices. Book in advance because it is always busy - locals know how good that place is.

I gave that place 5 stars because of what you can get for your money. You can find a better Thai food in London but you will need to pay 4 times more for that.

Brilliant

“Overall an unpleasant experience.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

When you arrive ask to use the bathroom and you will have a glance on the kitchen. The waiting time has been far too long for what we ordered. For two starters and two mains we had to wait for two hours. No apologies. They justify by saying they were given priority to the take away. I won't go there any more!

“Very small place, excellent food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food here is excellent especially the Tom Kai and red Thai curries. You can take your own alcohol and enjoy a lovely reasonable delicious meal. It gets booked up very quickly
