“What a find!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

At a loose end last Saturday night my husband and I fancied going out for dinner. Purely based on the tripadvisor reviews I called and booked us a table.

We received a warm welcome and were seated in a booth. The decor isn't modern or fancy but traditional Thai colours with pretty Thai paper parasols hanging from the ceiling.

The service was perfect. Very friendly, prompt and professional.

The food was simply wonderful. We shared 3 starters. I then had a delicious tofu masaman curry and my husband had a beef noodle dish. He said the beef was well cooked and of very good quality. All the food that we ate was of good quality, fresh ingredients and cooked with love. We also had a couple of Thai beers, pineapple juice, bottled water and coffee and the bill was still under £40.

I look forward to returning soon and trying some of the other dishes.

“Great Thai, Great Service”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

A very good Thai restaurant, beautiful Thai cuisine with great attentive service. Pad Thai chicken or prawn, Duck Panang, the curries, the fish dishes are all superb; light & fragrant that make Thai so different to Chinese. If you're not sure what to order ask the very friendly staff for recommends, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.

“Nice food, very good service.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Myself and my wife visited on a Saturday night. We found the location good with plenty of parking and the restaurant easy to find. We were greeted as soon as we entered and found the staff to be very polite and friendly.
The menu gives a good choice of dishes at reasonable prices. We had Thai Fish cakes and Chilli Squid for starters. The Chilli squid really was excellent, one of the best we have had. The main courses were similarly excellent with no negatives at all. Drinks were replenished when needed and service was of a very high standard throughout the evening.
My only critism, and the one reason for not giving 5 stars is that the tables are a little close together and we were seated next to a particularly loud table. However, it was a saturday night and is to be expected i suppose.
All in all, a very nice restaurant, good food, exceptional service and good price. We will definetly return.

“Fab food and wonderful staff!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is the only restaurant we now eat out at in Woodham, often eating early with the children. Staff are wonderful and always happy to adapt the menu for the children. The fish is fresh and always a winner!
