The food was beautiful as always! The lunch special is great value however the waitress with dyed orange hair was pretty inhospitable. When asking for extra plates she made it sound like a hassle. Quite dissapointing as this seems like a common occurence amongst other reviewers and other staff were nice.

We live locally and have been to this restaurant many times. We usually don't have a starter, just shared main dishes which are always very nice. The Thai fried rice is delicious and full of flavour ... last week I had the crispy fried pork belly with Chinese broccoli. It was full of flavour, piping hot and fresh. Happy to... More

Had dinner on Thursday night - food average, nothing special. Fish cakes entree served with no salad garnish and quite rubbery. Main complaint though is the staff. Not very friendly. It was not too busy so several waitresses were standing at counter having very loud conversations with one waitress with a particularly shrill voice that seemed to go right through... More

Shown to a table by an unsmiling girl who didnt even utter a word just literally showed us the table. Ordered pad thai and panang curry. Both arrived very quickly. Asked the girl for chopsticks with being in... More

Good food. We had Dim Sim, dumplings and calamari for starter, green curry and Tom yum fried rice for main. All the meals were awesome with some much taste. The price was really cheap as well. The only thing to let them down was the poor service. We had to chase up the waiters almost everytime we needed something. Worth... More
