This restaurant serves good quality Thai food and the service is efficient plus the staff are friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable. Decor is looking a little tired though.

we ate here a few nights ago and couldn't get enough. The serving size is very generous and reasonably priced. The food took us right back to Koh Samui, Thailand. Its authentic thai food cooked the way you like it - spicy or not spicy....More

Had lunch twice and impressed with the quality, friendliness of staff and price. Price of lunch special is a winner. Definitely worth a visit or two. The vegetarian cocoanut milk soup was a bit of a disappointment as there were a few veggies only.

We tried recently the restaurant and were disappointed by the quality of the food compared to many other Thai restaurants in town. The service was ok though.

Best Thai I have had in ages. It is a must!! They have great specials with some different dishes that we wouldn't have had if we didn't come here. Plus you can choose the strength of your curry- mild, med or hot.

This Thai food was soooo scrummy we had the left overs for breakfast ! The chef went out of his way to cook a vegetarian red curry and vegetables with cashews, my mouth is watering just thinking about it :)

We entered here as it has a very inviting atmosphere from the outside. We ordered a whole fish which was covered in a sauce that was far too sweet for us. The fish was too cooked to the point of not having much meat but...More
