Having decided to eat here we booked a table and were pleased we did, as it got quite busy. Menu choice is very good, and the quality of the food is excellent - really fresh and generous portions. Service was quick and friendly, and BYOB makes the meal very affordable

We were looking for a good place to eat to avoid traveling home in the rush hour, and this was open at 5.00pm. Its only small but genuine Thai cooking to a high standard and very friendly service. Plenty of interesting nick-nacks around the place and typical Thai according to my son who has toured Thailand before. The only disadvantage... More

We went here on New Year's Eve and was treated to a fantastic meal. Every dish was excellent both taste and how it was presented. The dumplings were so good my daughter ordered them for her main course as well. It is extremely good value for money and because they do not have a drinks licence you are able to... More

Its a lovely, tiny and cosy restaurant. Food is beautifully presented and tastes delicious. You are also allowed to bring your own booze. Its excellent vaue for money. I think they do take away aswell but I would urge you to visit the restaurant and dine in. Its always our go to place if we fancy a midweek treat!

What amazing food for such an inauspicious looking little place. The service was very efficient, even though the place was full. BYO is a bonus. Overall superb.

We booked last minute and managed to get a table for two on a Saturday night and we were so shocked and delighted to have tasted such authentic thai cuisine. We couldn't believe just how fantastic the food was and especially for the price, you cannot go wrong. I won't order/dine at any other thai restaurant now. I can't wait... More
