The food is excellent, possibly the best Thai restaurant in Ireland from my experience. Although the price is not cheap, but it is worth every penny!

This restaurant serves wonderfully fresh and tasty Thai. House white wine was excellent and the early bird menu is great value, with plenty to chose from. Great atmosphere, even though it was early evening. This restaurant never disappoints!

I find you must be mistaken re the toilets! They are extremely clean. And the service is impeccable as all food Is freshly prepared! For the quality of taste you must be patient! Sorry for you you have eaten from Asda Jared food.
