Excellent food. Staff very helpful and children very welcome. Excellent variety of joints (beef, pork and turkey) as well as vegetables. Deserts are mainly bought in and are ok but not special. However after the main course you don't need a pudding!

Not only does it serve superb Thai food, this restaurant caters for all tastes and all ages. My elderly Mother even had her food cut up for her! The menu is extensive and everything the four of us had was beautifully presented and delicious. They do takeaway too!
