Oxford is not a hotbed of restaurant options. A weekend visit and search on Tripdadvisor suggested that unless we wanted a curry The Quad was the 'go to' option but a booking policy for lunchtimes only doesn't serve would be diners well to take a gamble when evening temperatures are hovering above zero and gales lashing anyone outside.

So we were glad to skip taking our chances of being cut adrift without a dinner and choosing Chiang Mai: food was exceptionally good, Tudor building with appropriate fixtures, beams and doorways made for an interesting setting. Dumplings, fish cakes and satay were exquisite. Not the cheapest and can understand it being beyond the stretch of the student pocket but worth it

I went with six friends for lunch here last week. The food was poor bit the service was literally terrible. The staff was rude and charged us extra even for tap water! It should be mentioned that the food isn't cheap! Each dish was averaging 12£ (for lunch). To this you add an additional 3£ for rice, which is not included, and a further 15% compulsory service charge if you are more than 5 people. The food was cold and came out in about 2 minutes after ordering. when addressing this we were simply told that nothing was wrong, and that they couldn't do anything about it. Well, I would discourage anyone from going to this restaurant! There are many good choices in Oxford, but this is not one of them!

This used to be the go to place for Thai food in Oxford but it's resting on its laurels now. It's a fantastic location and building and the staff are great but the food could be so much better.

This is a good Thai restaurant. Varied menu, enjoyable food. Wine list was ok if not that extensive. Pretty good value for money, atmosphere good. Will probably go again, especially as my wife loves Thai food

Food was delicious and the portion size was more than enough. The restaurant had a nice buzz, busy but the service was friendly, attentive and smiley. I would recommend it for good food.
