A real find! Chance visit for my daughter’s 21st birthday meal. Flavours were wonderful, attentive service and they even served a birthday dessert and sang Happy Birthday to her. She feels that she was very spoilt!

Visited on a quiet Thursday night with Colleagues. We had a selection of smaller and regular meals which were delicious. Thai Green Curry highly recommended.
