My husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to book a table for dinner. Having only attended functions here in the past we were not sure what to expect. Very pleasantly surprised; the restaurant is very tastefully decorated with a comfortable seating area off the bar and the restaurant. A superb modern gas fire added to the ambience of the room as did the subtle background music. The staff were very attentive and we were soon made welcome and menus and drinks were in front of us. The menu is a mixture of Thai and English food and we chose two starters to share, one of which included the best tempura prawns and squid that we have had in a long time. Main courses were also excellent and although we were extremely full, desserts were too good to miss. My husband stated that the Crème Brulee was the best he had ever eaten. The wine list was reasonably priced and although not exciting, we chose a simple bottle of Pinot Grigio which went well with the meal. Our total bill for the whole meal including pre dinner drinks and wine was £82 which I thought very reasonable and good value as the portions were very generous.

We will definitely return and hope to do so very soon. The only down side if you like company was that it was extremely quiet, but this was a bonus for us as we loved the peaceful atmosphere.

Second visit here and we weren't disappointed. Restaurant is nicely decorated and comfortable. All the staff are really pleasant, so much so that we left a higher tip than we would usually as like to reward excellent customer service. The food was quite simply fabulous!! I'll say that again Fabulous. We love Thai food and you get great tasting, beautifully presented Thai food. The yellow chicken curry, beef noodles and satay chicken are to die for and definitely some of the best Thai food we've had. It was quiet when we arrived for early supper but by the time we left was busy and a good atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Situated in a prominent location in Bodmin we spotted this place but weren't at all sure about it. However, our B&B hosts recommended it and we were very impressed with the menu and the food. Visit the Hole in the Wall pub opposite before or after for a good pint by a real fire!

Having originally booked a table for 2 for myself and hubby, we then rang back on the 13th February to add my parents and my daughter to the table with no problem at all.

We arrived on the evening and were pleasantly welcomed and asked to purchase drinks at the bar and then the waitress would show us to our table - shown to a lovely table with Thai room dividers dividing our table with others in the room, but not so much to be totally private, very nice. A little disappointed to learn that there was a set menu ONLY for the evening which we were not informed of when we originally booked the table, although there was something for everyone and the food was all very much enjoyed

The only other niggle was the attitude of the 'more mature blonde waitress with glasses?!?' who took the initial order of starter and main who was quite curt/brusque when slight variations were requested to meal choices

Although she will not deter us from returning to try their original menu, she may find our responses to her brusqueness returned in a similar manner next time :/

We turned up just after their serving hours without booking prior to arrival. The courteous and friendly staff member saw us to a table and promptly took our drinks order. She returned in good time and took our order for starters & mains.

The food was very good - spicy and well-presented chicken satay skewers and the also very well presented pate - which was a very large starter and tasted amazing!
For mains we had the gammon steak and the steak and ale pie. The gammon was very flavoursome - only very small downside was the that I prefer crispy fat, although we didn't ask for it that way! The pie was lovely - and served with an awesome portion of veg (including carrot & swede mash! yum).

We skipped the dessert but only through being too full! Would recommend.
