We ate here one night after arriving in Lerwick. The restaurant is located above the bus terminal in the main part of town. It’s listed in most guide books. It was busy with locals and tourists the Wednesday evening we were there. The décor was nice and the servers pleasant and efficient. The restaurant advertises itself as Chinese and Thai. I ordered a Thai red curry, but it came with no coconut milk (!) and had a Chinese sauce instead. So it was not really Thai. “Thai-nese” is a more accurate description. The rice was dry and overcooked probably from sitting around. Despite being busy, there was little waiting and the food came out right away. In fact, the whole place had a rushed fast-food feel to it with quick table turnover. The food was tasty enough and the portions ample, but it was overpriced, especially anything to drink. Based on this experience, I can’t really recommend this place, but you need not avoid it either. Personally, I wouldn't go back.

We ate Thai Food here rather than Chinese, and the quality wasn't great...l'd recommend sticking to the Chinese menu.

I hope this review is a one off blip but I have just had what I can only say is the easiest meal on the chinese menu ruined ,,firstly i didnt even look like what it was supposed to be and it didnt taste like curry , the chicken could not be eaten as it was so under cooked ,, The service was efficient and quick ,, but that also means that the chicken did not have time to be cooked ,, sorry to say that its off my list of places to eat .
its also the first takeaway that i have ever had to buy rice witha chicken curry so value for money was terrible

Greeted by friendly staff. Great food and quick service. The two curry restaurants in Lerwick should take note! My only gripe was that its not disabled friendly. The lift didn't work so we had to traipse up the long stairs.
