    Service was very slow. 20 minutes before we even had a drinks menu. Seated at 730 but no food ordered until 8pm. Disappointing. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re gluten free. Never been to a Thai place that can’t make gf pad Thai, very disappointing. Options very limited. Not everyone who is gluten free is vegan. Asked for water, not sure why the jug wasn’t left as every other table had a jug of water. Won’t be back. Will stick to Awesome Thai.

    From making the booking right up until we left the restaurant the service was first class. The food came out very promptly and was both nice and hot, tasty and the right amount of spice. Friendly staff made it a good evening out

    A little patchy. They had no reference of our booking despite it being confirmed by Open Table. Although we were given a table we then waited 40 mins before someone arrived to take our drinks order. When food was eventually ordered and arrived, it was great so thankfully the evening was saved.

    Food was great!! Really tasty. However service was very slow; they were doing lots of takeaway orders which clearly impacted restaurant service. We were also sat next to a leak from ceiling which smelt pretty awful as did the nearby toilets. A shame, as the food was excellent.

    The staff were lovely but didn’t return to the table once we had finished our main courses. We had time so it wasn’t particularly an issue, just surprising as it could have been we wanted more drinks or a dessert. The food was average in quality. My starter was vegetable tempura which was pleasant but the batter was a little undercooked for my tastes. I had a tofu pad thai which for me was far too sweet. So sweet I couldn’t finish it. A shame because it’s a restaurant with a good vibe & lovely staff.

    Best Thai food we've eaten in a while - fabulous flavours. Friendly service, if not the most attentive - there was no risk of feeling rushed, which is a positive - in a very pleasant ambience. Look forward to returning!

The Ambience was nice mixed chilled and relaxed bit noisy were sat close to kitchen and staff were running up and down did not like this aspect, will ask to be seated elsewhere next time..

    Venue is gorgeous but didn’t enjoy the food. Was not authentic Thai. My friend ordered a dish which she did not eat, was disappointed that the waitress did not ask if there anything wrong when they cleared a full plate of food. I would not return.

    This is high up in the best Thai I’ve had in London. Super fragrant food, papaya salad was a highlight, I also like that they’ve got lesser known Thai dishes on their menu like Khua King.
