“The Best Thai I've Ever Had”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We ate here early one Saturday evening but it was still rather busy, I would recommend that you book if wanting to eat here at peak times. I had the red thai curry, which was the best thai meal I've ever had, creamy with a slight kick at the end. My mum had grilled pork shoulder which came with a very hot dip! The food was absolutely brilliant though and I would definitely recommend to eat here at either lunch or an evening if visiting York.

“Cosy restaurant lovely food”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Cosy little Thai restaurant just away from the centre of town a few minutes walk , booking advisable, fairly extensive menu, coded to give you a clue as to how hot and spicey the dish is. There is a good selection of food for those that don't like the heat. Extensive wine list and good selection of beers, staff happy to explain menu to the uninitiated

“A little gem”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We came upon this little Asian Restaurant by chance after we could not get a table in a nearby restaurant, and what a joy it was. We noticed that it was used by local Asians so that was an added incentive. From the moment we entered we were treated like royalty nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The menu included a good choice of meat and fish dishes all with an indication of "hotness". I chose a Beef Red Thai Curry and my partner a King Prawn Green Thai Curry and we shared a Phad Thai. It was delicious, not dry but not too much sauce. All the food was cooked at the back of the Restaurant in full view of the customers.
Drinks were good value.
The facade of the Restaurant is a little "tired" but don't let this put you off it is a little gem and another bonus is that you can park nearby.

“Really delicious lunch for some very tired people!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

On the off chance we popped in to this haven of tranquility after a morning of hard Christmas shopping! The two course lunch was simply delicious and it was encouraging to see Thai people eating here. We will be back and so will our daughter after my glowing report.

“OMG Best thai in York”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Fabulous food at very good prices in a shabby chic friendly eaterie.

The food was served hot, all at once and was faultless.

Excellent service will be coming back for sure.

Must try the Chicken skewers to start......
