Our meal started with a medley of dim sum (for myself) and duck spring rolls for my husband - both of which we enjoyed enormously. The dim sum were served on a plate instead of in the bamboo steamers as in most other Thai and Chinese restaurants, which was slightly disappointing, but they were delicious! I was a bit confused though as they all tasted the same and were meant to be 3 different flavours. Our mains took quite a while, but when they came, they were both very tasty. We both opted for Wok dishes - mine was a cashnew nut prawn wok dish while my husband chose a calamari wok. And yes, they were delicious. The rice was lovely and sticky and just right for the fiery heat of the medium strength chilli we chose.

The menu is extensive, and next time I will have to try the sushi options.

There was one small fly in the ointment however. There were no serviettes on our table when we arrived and we were never offered any throughout the evening. Our waiter expertly stayed just out of eye-line, so we were unable to summon him, and he departed rapidly after delivering the food. Not good enough!

It was "Groupon night" when we went, and therefore busier than normal, and they hadn't prepared for the extra business. We were not on a Groupon special, but had to wait inordinately! Usually, the food is authentic, and service acceptable.
