We have visited this restaurant twice, once as a couple and then with a group of friends. The food is amazing, the staff impeccable and the venue is perfect. Definitely recommend.

Thai set menu for two and a return after a couple of years food was as good as before excellent flavour and well presented. Waiting staff were all attentive and gave a great degree of service and a feeling of excellence and attention to detail and customer requirements and requests a must when in the area.

We had a takeaway from here on NYE and the food was excellent. WE were really pleased with the food. My husband collected the food and said the restaurant is lovely, so we look to return.

Just had a fantastic meal here! Superb food. Fresh, vibrant, perfectly seasoned, deftly spiced. Incredibly professional service, attentive, friendly, enthusiastic. A really great little restaurant. I wish I lived closer! Definitely coming back here, the soft shell crab were sooo good.

Whether your taking away or eating in you are always treated like kings or queens. The food is the freshest around by a mile and is cooked to perfection. I know people who travel for miles for this amazing food, I'm lucky I only live a few minutes away! Thanks guys for another wonderful meal last night, amazing as usual.

Would go nowhere else in or around the Milton Keynes area for Thai or Indian food. You can sit anywhere and choose from either menu despite what you hear about where you need to sit for what you eat.
