“Great food and friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had a really good meal here. Staff were very friendly even though English clearly wasn't the first language in every case. Small place which helps with the atmosphere, yet not crowded. Can recommend the scallops starter. Good value at about £50 for drinks, 2 starters, 2 mains and tea to finish. Well worth a visit (but you need to book in season).

“First visit fantastic food !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

A random decision to go out for Sunday lunch . Know that Walmgate has some good restaurants so pretty spoilt for choice . I wanted Indian , husband suggested Thai as had checked out trip advisor. Mumbai lounge ( Indian had been recommended ) but went with Thai. I like pretty spicy food so thought I might be disappointed . Absolutely not !
First impressions a bit shabby chic but hey you can see the kitchen clearly so just looked homely . Staff very friendly and welcoming . Wine offered was French dry white or Agentinian . Argentinian very acceptable .
2 courses for a tenner wow ! Good choice went with the Chicken skewers and the pork and prawn toast for our starters . Explained about my onion allergy expecting no garnish . It came onion free.
Main course exceeded my expectations . Penang chicken curry for me and chicken stir fry for hubby . Brilliant . They also do takeaways . Living near York I feel that I can add this place to my recommended . Big well done to this lovely restaurant . Could eat it all again . Nom nom

“Amazing food, nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Food here is really worth every penny, service was friendly and fast! We had starters and mains - both were served quickly for a Friday night, starters were fairly minimal in portion size but very tasty! Mains were very decent sized and very very tasty!!
We shared a bottle of Chablis and 2 cocktails post meal. Bill was around £70 ish... Which I didn't think was bad.
This is a relatively small place so table numbers and sizes are limited but it's a lovely quaint place :)
I would definitely recommend this place as I will definitely eat here again!

“Good but could be amazing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Booked a table for 2 after being recommended that this is the best Thai in the area (something sadly missing from Yorks culinary arena in past years). Menu looked good and judging by the number of people being turned away it's successful but

No complimentary spicy prawn crackers - had to ask for some then charged £3.50
Sparking water served at room temperature with no ice - again had to ask
Chicken in main course was battered (!) - used to eating Thai food with fresh ingredients and never seen this before

Overall enjoyed it but certainly not cheap (or even particularly good value) - may return for the £10 lunch deal but certainly not for an evening out
