My wife and I had a take away, which was really disappointing. I had the duck stir fry. 2 hours later it came out my bottom like a flock of starlings. My wife was unwell too. We won't go back.

Great service, some of the best Thai food I've had, very helpful and friendly staff and the set menus are very good value for money. Would definitely recommend, especially the mixed starter! We will be back!

The title is a direct quote from my companion today, who has 70+ years of dining experience. We chose a butterfly prawn curry, chicken with mushrooms and other vegetables in oyster sauce, king prawn pad Thai and jasmine rice, accompanied by Singha beer. Everything was delicious, full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The Thai decor, serene ambience and quiet... More

This is my local Thai and the food is always amazing. My parents eat in the restaurant regularly but my boyfriend and I tend to order takeaway. They are really accommodating if you want to swap items on the mixed seafood starters and an item I usually order was no longer on the takeaway menu but they still make it... More
