Well worth a visit, the food was good, and service was quick and friendly despite the pub being very busy. Added to that, some nice beers, and a range of well behaved dogs which is always good

Amazing cute pub with lovely staff. But the Thai food is authentic, tasty and reasonably priced. My favourite pub to go to for food

I've been coming to the Reservoir since moving to the area last April and I used to order a Thai from this place nearly every weekend! I loved their Panang Curry and Tom Kha soup. Last few months I haven't bothered ordering food because they...More

Reasonable Thai food, would have given it a 3.5. Food was pretty authentic, but needed a bit more of a chilli kick. Starters though were awesome, could have eaten them all day. I suppose they have to cater for UK tastes. Great atmosphere and very...More
