“Beautiful place, great view and nice food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The restaurant is very nicely decorated and overlooking the river. There is a lot of different tasty dishes. I particularly liked the Spicy pork salad.
We only had a quick lunch there but I would love to go back for a long relaxed dinner.

“Good food, great service, wonderful views”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I really don't understand very negative reviews here. I went to the place for two days in a row, once in a quite time and once when it was very busy. The staff are very attentive, I got great service both times. The menu is a bit limited compared to some other Thai places, but whatever they do they cook really well. All my selections were tasty and conformed to the menu descriptions. If you get a table by the window the view is terrific; but it's not bad elsewhere in the room. Actually the dining area looks very nice and (Thai-) stylish.

“Don't go here”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The food was terrible and significantly over priced 14.95 pp for a lunchtime buffet for food that was tasteless and bare as food was very rarely replenished. Furthermore burnt my finger whilst attempting to have some dim sum not knowing that it was a hot surface due to there being no sign there, no compensation given. Service was slow. All in all a bad experience due to a lack of management and further health and safety.

“Disappointing Thai experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Having had some really good Thai meals recently, we decided to give our local Thai restaurant a try. We arrived on a Friday evening in April. We were shown to a nice table overlooking the River Avon and we were able to watch the sun set and the moon rise - so far, so good!

Once the sun had gone down, we started looking around the restaurant. It was looking very tired and run down. The staff were polite but without any Emotion. Worst of all was the food. We'd opted for their top-priced banquet for two. It was a real feat of cooking to make so many dishes taste exactly the same but look different. The sauces were gloopy and vague. There didn't seem to be any freshness to any of the food.

On the upside, we did have a very good bottle of rosé wine.

We won't be rushing back!

“Excellent Thai food with a great view over the Avon”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We have been here a few times and the food just gets better.Lovely surroundings and a lot of tables overlook the river. There is plenty of parking nearby and its close to the Bear pub which is good for a pre dinner drink. We opted for the set seafood menu which is about £30.00 each and a bottle of house white at about £16.00.the set menu has plenty of food and even comes with a coffee and a choice of puddings. The service was very good. Its not a cheap place to dine out but it really is very very good. Well worth a try. I believe they do a cheaper weekend lunch buffet.
