“Absolutely fantastic food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

The best Thai restaurant in Derby. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff very friendly and pleasant. The food is varied and quite cheap at lunchtime and still reasonably affordable at dinner time. We've been regulars for years, recommend it to friends and anyone. Amazing!!

“The best Thai food I've tasted”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Was very dubious about the area and look of the restaurant from the outside but some Thai ladies said they eat there often and it was very good. I started to walk up the stairs in the restaurant and nearly turned back but so pleased I didn't. The restaurant was very clean despite first appearances and when the food arrived ... well, it was something else. Extremely fresh and the flavours of the food were amazing. Spare Ribs to start, the meat fell off the bone. My husband and I have found a gem of a restaurant, it is authentic and I cannot wait to eat there again. It was extremely good value for money too.

“Excellent food, friendly staff but slooow service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went with a friend on a Sat evening. Place was nicely busy (gd sign). Staff very friendly. Impressed by selection of vegetarian dishes. Food was well presented and delicious...slurp. But service was slow, starter took 45min to come.Staff were apologetic. We tried green curry and panang for mains. Wiped the platter clean. Total cost 16 pounds each. Would definately go again to try the other dishes.

“Really really good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

We go to this restaurant oftern, usually on mass for birthdays etc. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great, and the staff couldn't be better. It's a strangely authentic Thai oasis in the centre of Derby.
