As other tripadvisors have said. Don't come here for the decor. Do come here for tasty Thai and Indian, do come for a lovely host and good service. Dine here in a group or alone, you will be welcomed.

We found this restaurant in Charlestown, Newcastle almost by accident. We had a long drive and a busy afternoon and needed sustenance. The place was quiet on a Sunday night. The staff were very friendly and the food was both plentiful and absolutely delicious.

Nice little restaurant with great music playing in the background. Service was ok. I did not like the massaman curry, my colleague also ordered it and hers was much nicer, I am not sure why.
