Lovely food and great atmosphere. Had sizzling chicken and spicy hot and sour soup. And ginger and coconut sticky toffee pudding. YUM. Well recommended 😁😁

Busy on a Monday evening, as locals obviously know about pre-7pm early bird special. Service and Thai noodle and rice dishes excellent. Opposite Skylon Hotel, decent locals pub Cat & Cage nearby, and on several bus routes between city centre and airport.
