“Great green curry!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We ate at Catfish this evening and were very impressed. The green curry was delicious.
As non-cat-lovers, we felt a bit hesitant having read all he reviews about the many cats. There are several hanging around, but not in the actual restaurant, just lazing around in the bookshop.
The service was great and the setting is beautiful. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely return.
