“A good Thai meal!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

They offer an extensive menu of Thai including seafood. It's all beautifully presented and tasty. the service good. However it is not my favourite by far. It all seems bait mass produced somehow. Maybe that's because it's a chain. Still good- and I will go again!

“Well worth a visit - good thai food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

hadn't been here for a few years but met up with family to celebrate a birthday. Food was good (although they should offer tofu as well as vegetable and meat options for the dishes - this is why they lost a point on the rating). Service was good and they picked up from our conversation that it was one of our parties birthday and after the main course they came in with an ice cream desert with a candle and sang happy birthday. Nice spontaneous touch and a surprise for everyone including the birthday boy - would definitely go back there again
