                                                Delicious food served by very friendly and efficient staff. Be aware the 'Mains' portions are large compared to many other Thai restaurants. Best to book a table so that you won't be disappointed. This was a great find in Inverness and we would certainly book again.

                                                We were in town for an event. The food was very tasty with big portions and beautifully presented, service was so great and the overall feel was very relaxed. Very happy we went there and would happily recommend it to anyone in the area.

                                                A fun and enjoyable Thai food experience. Highly recommend. The only disappointment was no curry dishes for vegetarians. But both carnivores and vegetarians in our group had delicious meals nonetheless. The service was lovely and decor very bright and welcoming.

                                                We are here 9th April. Had a lovely meal. The only downside were the ignorant diners when after eating their whole meal refused to pay the bill. The wife poured wine on the floor. Security were called and asked them to leave as they have tried this twice before. Felt very sorry for the young staff they handled it very well but everyone around agreed the couple were a disgrace. Surely they should not be allowed to rebook a table after refusing to pay their bill after eating the meal. Would recommend eating here as long as this couple are not allowed back

                                                It was our wedding anniversary so thought we d try a different restaurant (son came too) . The restaurant was busy and turning away people who hadn't booked which tells me the quality of food served is fab. I ordered tempura prawns as a starter and they were the best I'd ever tasted. Main course I had sweet and sour chicken & again it was gr8. Didnt need a full portion of rice per person as there was more than enough ingredients in main course to fill you up. Felt sorry for staff tho as they seemed "rushed off their feet'" & i did hear a couple of customers complaining ( dont know what that was about) but again i felt the staff handled situation well and went round each table after the incident apologising which again i felt sorry for the front of house staff. Will defo return as we live locally and had never been to Thai Dining b4.

                                                Food is ok, good spice to the green curry. The table is only for two hours for tables of 2 to 4. We were reminded of this throughout the meal, which didn’t add to the pleasure of the meal. Was far too hot in the restaurant and they asked us to open our own wine.

                                                It was our first time here for family meal. Delicious food all round, unobtrusive and pleasant service, great vibe, cleanest toilets I've seen in a restaurant. Great experience, we'll be back.
