“Good food but served too quick”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I've been here 4 times and the food is very good. Many people have attended with me and it gets the universal thumbs up. Tonight though they served 3 courses in just 30 minutes which was too quick.

Thank you for taking the trouble to review our restaurant.. I'm sorry you felt rushed on this occasion. I've reminded the staff that diners need to be given time to enjoy the experience.

Great Thai food. The service and attention is very good and the food is excellent. This was my second visit. Easy parking in Jacobs yard pay & display near by.

“Tasty meal”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed the food and the coziness of the restaurant. The Thai food was the best we'd had in a long while. We are looking forward to our next visit.

“Great thai food”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. Sharing starters are a must, and all main meals have been nicely presented and delicious. Personally never had pudding here so cant comment, but have washed a meal down with one of their cocktails- yum!

We always welcome the opinions of those who have dined at our restaurant but it is disappointing when they make unsubstantiated comments. I can assure all readers of this review that our spring rolls are all made on the premises. As for the other comments, I would only point out that they are in stark contrast with those of the vast majority of other reviewers.
