Another fantastic meal at this delightful Thai restaurant. Those who haven't tasted the food yet just don't know what there missing. The sea-bass was outstanding. Followed by mango sorbet to cleanse the palate. We are gradually moving our way down the menu. The chefs specials are amazing. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for there customers. Booked again in two weeks. Can wait. The Brealeys

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and found there were only two other tables occupied which I found a little strange due to all the 5 star reviews on TA.

Unfortunately we found the food to be at very best average. The staff were friendly but this doesn't make up for the quality of the food being served.

After visiting this place, it's left us both questioning whether all the reviews on here are from genuine patrons.

We won't be returning.

This is a super place to enjoy Thai food - the service is friendly and efficient, the food delicious and good value. On an admittedly quiet night the food was brought to our table quickly and sizzling hot. Even if I had wanted to - I could not fault it. The restaurant itself is clean and modern if a little too clinical in its ambiance. The one thing that totally amazed us on the night we were there was the relative lack of customers - surely they weren't all at the other Thai restaurant?

The welcome we received was friendly. We had been recommended this restaurant but would not rush back as we have had better Thai food in Burton. We thought the portions to be on the small side and did not think it was good value for money (£9.95 each) for 3 courses, 1 of which was tea or coffee.

Sorry but we did not find this restaurant as good as other reviewers. We visited at lunch time and after being recommended. After reading such a good review we were surprised to find the place empty, perhaps it was the £9.95 lunchtime menu, this is a bit steep when compared to others that charge £2 less. This however this was for 3 courses, come on though, when has coffee ever been a course? Food was OK and well presented, but that's all, portions were quite small, (Perhaps this is lunch time size). we have eaten far better, service was very good, (there was only two of us) but a bit OTT. The bill with one bottle of water was £23. this is a lot more than I would normally pay for a small lunch time meal, perhaps if they offered this at £5 or £6.95 they would be busier, many of the other places nearby seemed to have a good trade, Would I return? not when in my opinion when there are better Thai restaurants nearby.
