Came for bottomless brunch with prosecco. Definitely not a traditional brunch but food was incredible and servers were very attentive to topping up our drinks. The restaurant was gorgeously decorated we got given a booth that was very comfortable and looked very fancy in pictures

Best Thai food I’ve had in the UK! The staff were very accommodating and as it was for a birthday they made a special dessert plate which was lovely.

Definitely be returning to try more of the menu.

Unfortunately we were disappointed, overpriced and the food was not good, we commented on the over cooked duck, extreme ginger flavour and chewy lamb, however nothing was done, £90 later,left disappointed abs still hungry.

I ordered Thai mussels in a clay pot. They were overcooked and poorly presented. The restaurant is dated and noisy like a canteen. The cocktails were nice.

We attended as part of my wife's Birthday celebrations. We took our teenage boys who loved the food and atmosphere. We had one of the tasting menus and the food was delicious and plentiful.
Fully recommend for those special occasions.

We got the koh samui menu and the food was delicious. Nice selection on it, lots of different flavours and the restaurant is beautiful.
Tried a few of their mocktails too which were very nice.

Not authentic thai food & dishes that contain fish are labelled as vegetarian on the menu. I’m sure if you eat meat the dishes might be better, but as a vegan who has lived in thailand it was a pretty underwhelming experience.

I was underwhelmed by the food here considering the reviews and accolades they have on their website. Food was oily, sticky and not what I would expect from thai. Temperura prawns were basically just deep fried in chip shop batter. Pad Thai lacked any real flavour. There are considerably better thai restaurants in Birmingham so would not return to this one.

It was great, would’ve given 5 stars however I didn’t like being sat on that big table when it was just 2 of us. We barely could hear each other as we was far from each other.

Cannot fault the service, everyone we encountered was professional, helpful and attentive.
We had the set menu option, the food was nice, couple of items I would have again and some others that we wouldn’t.
The cocktails were really nice!
It was our first time visiting, and we would probably visit again in the future.

I booked a table for two for a birthday. We was seated right next to a huge Christmas party group who were extremely loud. It wasn't a nice quiet romantic birthday night I had hoped for. I chose this restaurant as it was meant to be good, which the food was very nice. It did not have a restaurant feel to it more like a loud pub atmosphere so I was not happy to pay nice restaurant prices to get loud pub vibe in return. We couldn't really talk to each other.
The only other table offered was in the bar. Overall not happy with the overall experience.
The food was great and the waiters were all very friendly
It wasn't a last minute booking. I booked in advance so I was very disappointed
