very good authentic feel to this restaurant. ambience and courtesy shown to our large group was superb.... we mixed standard and spicy in our group and the spicy was very nice and not too OTT! The atmosphere in the restaurant was great and the service was OK. In the background at all times to serve our needs but not too rushed or 'in your face' as some thai restaurants can be...
As a big group we were put in a private room so that was a nice touch.... worth a visit in my view

We visited on Sunday and I had been really looking forward to visiting however it will be long while until I return. We arrived and was seated fine. We were left to look through the menus. Within the next ten minutes two more couples had walked in. Unfortunately after this point we felt a little annoyed. They came back to both couples and took their drinks orders, went a got their drinks and the returned with their drinks order and took their food order. All of this before they took our drink order. Finally after about 20 mins of arriving our order was taken, unfortunately the starter we order was not available. Although when the food arrived it was great and by far the best part of the evening.

Once we had had our food the dishes were taken away and we were esked if there was anything else we wanted, we said no. Wrongly assuming the bill would be bought over to us, it wasn't and we wait whilst the waitress put all the flowers away in an empty restaurant. When did ask for the bill and it was bought over. However for £40 something for a beer two mains, one starter, two cokes and beer and over 90mins to serve it i didn't feel like we had value for money. Which is very disapointing as we love thai food.

This place is authentic with great food and service. I would say however if you are the type who looks forward to desert after a meal your will be disappointed as they don't have a huge variety and the Thai style dishes for desert are presented to you for selection from a trolley.

Apart from this the atmosphere, food and overall experience is always spot on!
Never been disappointed and have been visiting this place since the day it opened.

Thank you Thai emerald!

My friend & I had the non spicey set menu £21 each , large tray of starters , x2 chicken dishes (we exchanged a seafood dish for one) was no problem ! And a beef dish with fried rice, was loads to feast on! Really tasty and thoroughly enjoyed! Followed by a choice of homemade dessert and a really nice cup of coffee - a really good all in set menu , very impressed would recommend to all Thai food lovers!
