Myself and my husband have eaten here many times. Everytime the service is brilliant. The food is out of this world. Really delicious. A good variation on the menu. All the staff wear traditional clothing and you are surrounded by amazing wood carved tables and chairs, not to mention the spectacular carved fish tank in the entrance! Has a lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

We came here at a quiet time between Christmas and New year. There was 1 guy running the show who just couldn't be bothered. He ignored us - he was either on the phone or chatting to a friend. We had to go and pick up the wine list for ourselves, but he still didn't come and ask us if we'd like to order anything. In the end we walked out and went to Nandos... A shocking way to treat customers...

Visited on a Saturday night recently, the food, service and atmosphere were very good. Definitely visit again.

I've been here many times as its very close to my home and I'm a big fan. Its not much to look at from the outside but Inside the decor is stunning with intricately carved wooden furniture. The staff also wear traditional clothing. They serve the usual fare expected in a Thai restaurant but the portion sizes, presentation and quality are very good. I also love the 'old school' desert trolley. Particularly the crunchie bar dessert!

Our three hour ordeal began at 7:45 and finished at 10:30! Our mains and starters arrived almost two hours after we were seated, really not impressed. Starters turned up with mains, we had to chase up several missing dishes and desert turned up after we asked for the bill.

To top it off our pints of Boddingtons were served with ice and lemmon???

After complaining we were asked to pay full price and the only explanation offered was "sorry we were busy, no discount"

The food was pretty good but this isn't enough to make up for the appalling service. There are nicer Thai restaurant in Oxford center such as Chiang Mai Kitchen, I'd suggest going there instead!
