“Excellent”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Had dinner yesterday in this restaurant while on a trip to Manchester. It's a small chain with other outlets all over the UK. The front of house welcome was very friendly and coats were taken to the cloakroom.
The starters were steamed dumplings for me (outstanding) and for my partner 'golden baskets', a mixed fish with lemongrass you spoon into fried baskets. Very tasty and well presented.
Main for me was a very acceptable chicken with cashews with a very moreish stir fry noodle dish. Lamb teriyaki for her was lovely and I am not generally a lamb fan. She had lemon cheesecake for dessert which she thought was very nice.
A Singha beer, tea for her and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc all came to 81 pounds. An OK price for dinner.
Would I try it again? Yes. The food is very good. Only one thing....our waitress was MISERABLE!! Face like a smacked bum. Tip adjusted accordingly.

Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

Amazing food, a bit expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed.we managed to get a table in the quieter section which was ideal, the other half of the restaurant was a bit noisy though

“Taste Downhill - Prices Uphill”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

I went here last Year and the food was very tasty. This time round the prices are sky high but the taste of their food has gone a bit downhill. Their food tastes pretty standard now compared to other thai restaurants and their prices just are too high for that kind of general standard. The food portions are good but the taste is just lacking as compared to a Year ago. I won't be returning.

“Pleasant Experience”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Very good food and service. We opted for one of the set menus and were shocked at the large amount of food that arrived! The beef salad was the standout main course. We'd go back!

“Pretty good, better than average dining”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Been wanting to visit here for a while, so booked for an evening with friends. Big place, plenty of staff to meet & greet. Sat upstairs, got quick service despite the restaurant being full of Christmas diners. Food was good quality (satay fondue for 2 was excellent) with very fresh ingredients, but mains were overloaded with Lemongrass & Ginger which detracted from the quality of the food. We have been to Thailand and eaten many different types of dish, so expect both of these ingredients in most dishes. I don`t ever recall any meal being so heavy on either and this did spoil my enjoyment. Overall, nice place, friendly staff, but easier on the aromatics please !
