Having walked past hundreds of times, I eventually are here recently and wish I had tried it sooner. The menu is more interesting than Wagamama and has a wide variety of popular dishes from South East Asia. The portion size of my chicken satay was small but the main course filled me up. They also do a set menu during the daytime which is excellent value. If you don't fancy a beer, try the home made lemonade as a refreshing alternative.

I don't like these types of restaurants where everybody is thrown together on rows of bench seats, but this has not put me off visiting again and again. The food is excellent.

Have just eaten here with my best friend and was so impressed I had to comment straight away. The restaurant seated us immediately, lots of space and a great atmosphere. The waitress was really friendly and offered to explain the menu to us which we politely declined, the menu is very extensive and clearly written. I ordered a one chilli beef stew which I asked to be made quite spicy and it absolutly delicious, I have eaten the real thing and this was a very authentic version! Generous portions and attentive waitresses. Value for money was great, three courses plus drinks and coffee for less than £50!

This was my first trip here but it will not be my last, so many more things to try on the menu.
