Great customer service. Also accommodated an extra person in our party, more than we had planned when booked.
Food was amazing and awesome atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

The bar area was quite noisy upon entry- this is the only ‘negative’ comment.
The dining area sits far enough away from the bar for the noise to fade away and enjoy conversation at the table without having to raise your voice.
The service was as good as the food- if not slightly better!
It’s great to go to a restaurant where the waiting staff aren’t definitively split into sections, and are willing to go to one another’s tables to ensure the guests are never left wanting- do thank you.
We had the sizzling platter to start which was full of flavour, and plenty for two!
I had the lamb for main course which fell apart, and the curry flavours were excellent.
Finally, it was my wife’s birthday and the staff brought us out a cheesecake with a lovely birthday message which tasted magnificent.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for an all round great experience.

They’ve changed the menu and now offer a lot less options which leaves you wondering about the understanding of a Thia restaurant with the new owners.

No Stir Fry dishes, No Sticky or Coconut Rice and some other basic Thai options smh. I all for new evolution but you can remove most of the menu that make a Thai restaurant a Thai restaurant lmao…

I was emailed a two for one mid-week offer where you would get this deal on mains and desserts.
This was not honoured on my bill despite following the instructions that the manager asked me to follow when calling up the restaurant to confirm the offer. Before I was seated when I arrived I again asked about the offer which the manager confirmed but when I received the bill it was not on there, why advertise an offer if you won't honour it?

The food was so bland, overpriced for what was presented. Service was ok, noise level was fine, table by the kitchen door not the best. Wouldn’t come again in all honesty, food just wasn’t up to par

Food beautiful, service first class. If your looking for cheap this isn't the place but food worth it. Only criticism is as a nice little touch some more prawn crackers we were given a bowl of 6 crackers between 4 of us. We had to buy an additional bowl for £3.45 & again got 6 crackers. Poor considering our bill was way over £200.

Food was very bland, and there didn’t seem to be communication between staff, we kept getting asked the same questions about drinks and ordering when we literally had just done it with someone else, this happened 3 times. Everything else was lovely, but food being bland is a big no for me.

The food was amazing! But... I was expecting more from the cocktails from the advertising on the website, it does have a cocktail bar but with limited choice. That said, will 100 percent be going again!

Found this place on google reviews so thought would try. When we arrived was very nice place but we was given a tiny table next to the kitchen which wasn’t really the best but anyway service was quick. Food overall was very basic and lobster was to salty and lamb was extremely rare is curry. Nothing amazing really. No toilet roll in ladies toilets . Also when paying the bill in cash was asked would you like your change ? Strange question to ask after already have a service charge added onto the bill and really would of liked to of been given change back and for us to Decide to leave it or not.
Wouldn’t say it was really bad but just somewhere probably wouldn’t go again.
