Everything was very good , but we had a very noisy table next to us. We were able to move when another table became available and then everything was very good

Lovely small Thai restaurant with authentic Thai food. Had an epic papaya salad that literally burned my mouth but was warned about it upfront. Would definitely recommend

Didn't find the evening particularly relaxing. The waitress, though well meaning, starting asking us about drinks while we were still standing by our table taking our coats off! This is a particular bugbear of mine, pushing drinks so desperately always reminds me of the amount of profit they must generate for a restaurant and it makes me more determined to resist! She continued to ask throughout the meal - if all three of us had been pressured into repeating our initial order then the one driving would have been over the limit! A bit of common sense and savvy would be appreciated.

Exceptional food and a very friendly team waiting to serve you. We had the mix starters for two which was generous and fantastically tasty.
The curries that followed were brilliant too...
It doesn’t get 5 stars for service just because the port was literally half the proper measure in inappropriate glasses. A shame but was rectified very quickly. Great place to eat and a bit busier would have added to the atmosphere.
We’ll definitely be back. Thanks

Very warm welcome and delicious food, as always. We have been several times when the restaurant was quiet but this time was busier and the service really suffered - one of our starters (from a table of 6) was missed and I think the same happened with all our mains as it took absolutely ages and food only eventually came a short while after we prompted (and then the mild/ medium choices seem to have been completely forgotten). Luckily we were friends catching up so extra time didn't ruin our evening but it was a real shame. Food was definitely worth the wait, though!

Our favourite dish of chicken Penange was superb with very authentic flavours.
Staff friendly.
Like the place even better now that a wall has been knocked through making the restaurant area much more spacious.

Friendly, attentive staff, keen to explain the interesting extensive menu. Good specials board. Food delicious and very tasty. Not over-filling. We were offered discount for NHS staff. Would have been very food value anyway. Definitely reccomend!

Fantastic authentic Thai food, very friendly staff and great choice of freshly made Thai dishes. We will definitely return again soon and can highly recommended this restuarant (and take away service) to others!
