    Our server Sharath and the Manager Wasim were very good and attentive. They made great suggestions and guided us well with the selection of dishes. The food was authentic in flavour and the portions sizes were quite hearty too.

    Excellent food,and very efficient service. We had Thai pad with prawns,which was delicious and full of flavours. The mango and passion fruit was also lovely, The best of it was the honey lemon sauce .

    Wonderful food, I had the chicken satay and rice and my partner has the hot red curry. The hot red curry needs to be a little more spicy, I was gutted I didn’t get to see him cry his eyes out over it 😅 Will defo be back! Great friendly service!

    Food was OK, its been better. restaurant was busy. Despite booking a booth, staff initially said they were full, and then attempted to put us at an open table, rather than a booth. Once seated, service was OK, once served, we didn't get asked if everything was OK, and had a job getting attention to pay the bill. It's normally better than this.

    We were greeted in a courteous manner. However, there was a complete lack of organisation and communication between the staff. Waited on 15 mins for drinks, the main course arrived before our refreshments. We received someone else's order. Really poor organisation.

    1st time I have ever had Thai food and I have been to Thailand. I had the battered chicken pad Thai which I would highly recommend. I am also alcohol free and the juices are made fresh and taste amazing which makes a change from standard drinks. The waiting staff are very efficient and polite. This is a gem of a place that needs to be visited and if I lived local I would visit more often
