    Pretty authentic Thai food, well prepared and very tasty. Given the location, very surprised with the price - exceptional value. They were very busy, so service was a little in-attentive, hence only 4 stars here (minor issue)….

    A smaller menu compared to pre-COVID, which is understandable due to the less football and it is not a Tuesday. But a good variety nevertheless, and great quality.

    Lovely restaurant hidden away. The food was delicious however the menu did not have many vegetarian options but the restaurant went out of their way to create options for us which was fantastic! If they can add more vegetarian options that will bring this to a 5!

    Booked a 5.15 sitting and upon arrival they looked very surprised at us being there. Explained I had a table booked but they were preoccupied with an impending arrival of a large group. Sat us right at the back, around the corner where it was dark, cold and dingy and stuck next to some temporary storage area. We asked to move to the next bigger table and they said yes, someone else then came round and said no, not it should have bothered anyone as their main group/guests/priority was in the main part of the restaurant. Service was pretty quick, the two new waiting staff were pleasant and attentive. Food was good, good flavour, subtle spice and kick where needed. Spring rolls, green curry and pad Thai shouldn’t be wrong but some are, not here, it’s rather nice, shame the service part of it was off otherwise the score would have been more.

    The food was very nice and the service excellent but this place was really let down by the facilities - the toilets were really disgusting. On this occasion the men’s loo seat was broken so men had to use the ladies’, and in the ladies’ one of the cubicles was out of order. The main restaurant was decent enough and the meal very enjoyable but I do hope they fix this soon.

    I booked this Thai restaurant as I found on google maps it was the closest to our hotel (across the road from St Paul's Cathedral). I must say on the whole, we were very satisfied with our meal. It was nice and peaceful for a Saturday evening. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered tap waters and a Coca Cola. Lovely menu. Simple and easy to read (includes some photos of dishes). The start platter for 2 sounded delicious and ordered fried squid too. All of it was delicious and quite filling, although there could have been more squid. The breaded, butterfly shrimp was my favourite! For mains ordered we ordered the pad Thai (which was a tad too sweet for us), Jungle Curry (nice BUT VERY VERY SPICY to be warned lol) and wok fried chicken with basil, garlic & green beans. The wok fried chicken was very good. smoky and savoury. For 3 adults cost £85. Not overly pricy but not cheap either. You have to take into consideration the location I guess. On the whole very happy and will be going back.

    Nice lunch here. I went with the a la carte menu: vegetarian spring rolls and chili basil chicken with jasmine rice. The spring rolls were perfectly cooked and not plasma-hot. The chili basil sauce was lovely, very spicy with plenty of chicken and vegetables. Service was attentive and friendly.
