I use this restaurant to go too and to get takeaways. They have wonderful green curries and a comprehensive menu for vegetarian food that is healthy and delicious. I recommend if you like Thai food.

We enjoyed the food. The portions are large. tasty, spicy. I could have done with more basil in the pork and basil dish but it was certainly very filling.

We really enjoy Thai food and have found this restaurant offers the best variety on their menu. The service is quick and friendly. Their Satay sauce is delicious as are their curries.Highly recommend this if you like Thai food. The food is always nice and fresh from our experience.

Pork salad far too spicy (& i enjoy spice) with broccoli, cauliflower and cooked chunks of carrot. Very disappointing. I would... More

There was a big group of us dining, the meals didn't take too long to arrive. The food was fresh and hot, drink menu was a bit lacking

We ordered a prawn Tom yum soup-thai hot, a chicken green curry-medium and a beef red curry - Thai hot to takeaway. Firstly none of them were very hot in the flavor department, medium at best. Secondly the dishes were very bland with minimal effort put into the curry bases, and the Tom yum soup had a different base to... More
