Went out for dinner, the food was of an okay quality and arrived promptly. What I wasn't impressed by was the treatment of waitresses by what I presume to be the owner. There was confusion over what dessert I had ordered/ was delivered by the waitress and I asked for the appropriate dessert to please be exchanged. Instead of dealing... More

We had a joint starter and only 2... More

The service was good and the setting was pleasant, but I suffered such a nasty migraine/headache due to the use of MSG in the stir fry dish within a very short time of leaving the restaurant.

Having dined here before with family we decided to bring friends here on Saturday night. It was so disappointing, we were rushed from start to finish and really did feel quite harassed by our waitress who was a young girl with not much (or so it seemed) experience and no idea on how to deliver a positive dining experience for...

Love this restaurant. Thai cuisine is not my favourite, but it does move up the ranks when I dine at Buddha Stix. Even the plates they use seem to enhance the dishes served. My only critisism would be, that I booked online and in red lettering, it said must be finished by 1pm as other diners are due in. However,... More

We arrived without a reservation on a busy, rainy evening, but they fit us in with no wait. Food was delicious, especially for folks who live where Thai dishes are impossible to get. Most dishes can be made with whatever protein appeals (chicken, pork, beef, prawns, or tofu), which makes tailoring a meal to personal taste not at all difficult.... More

Dined here in mid March. The restaurant was reasonably busy. Tables were very close together and somewhat noisy. We had Spring Rolls, Guri Puffs and Satay Chicken Sticks to start. We shared a Green Chicken Curry as a main. The food was okay, pretty average, no special flavour sensations and must admit expected better. Maybe should give it another opportunity.
