“The best Thai food outside Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I have eaten here nearly 20 times and have never had anything less than a 5/5 meal. The service is so friendly, the food so fresh and authentic and also great value for money. We take all our friends and family here and it never ever disappoints.

“Authentic Thai food a long way from Thailand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

A wet Thursday evening in Prestbury was brightened by a visit here! Not busy so service was attentive. I took the chance to practice my bad Thai but the lady who served told me later when asked that she was from the NE of Thailand and her first language was Lao not Thai!


So the Hunglay slow cooked pork dish was a rarity in UK as a Northern Thai dish - country style cooking and not as fiery as southern Thai cuisine. Quite delicious. One of the party had a prawn yellow curry which was as good as any Inhave had in Thailand.

We shared a starter platter which wasn't quite as exciting - but perfectly acceptable. Singha and Chang beer available as well as Tiger .

Not the cheapest - just over £80 for three - two drinks each and no dessert but the well heeled of Prestbury probably wouldn't notice. I loved it as I wasn't paying!

“Friendly and cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We had a very good meal here, but it was the ambience more than anything else that we liked. The staff were delightful and the place was cosy.

“Our guilty pleasure...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

My young son when asked for his monthly treat, on a Friday after school has asked for 'Thai Takeout' on our bikes the past couple of months...

I think this is a rave review.. from a 4 year old. It is has to be good and honest!
It is reliably good food, lovely service, familiarity (also teaching us Thai words) with respect.

I agree also that it is sometimes very quiet, this is such a shame as I think it could / should be much busier, maybe running little thai cooking classes for us locals might be a lovely way to go ...

“Nice alternative in Prestbury but lacks a bit of polish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Have been here three times recently and the food is great but the place lacks atmosphere.

Prices are reasonable but not cheap
