I ordered Thai beef salad - described as 16. YAM NUA Thai style spicy salad with thinly sliced grilled beef steak,toasted in a red onion,coriander & lime juice dressing.... More

My partner and I visited a couple of months ago with two of our friends and had such a lovely time. The atmosphere was cosy, and the whole restaurant was beautifully lit. Our waitress was a very lovely Irish girl who was very attentive while respecting our space. She was patient despite us asking her a lot of questions about... More

We visited as it was a very rainy day and we wanted somewhere near to our hotel. As we love Thai food we decided to give it a try. It's VERY dark in this place with some tea lights and fairy lights providing ambience and all tables are quite private little nooks and crannies. It's maybe a little too dark... More

This restaurant has been around in several guises for a long time, and this version is good, the decor is unusual and provides a nice feel to the place. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is typical Thai English with a fairly big menu, portions are large and tasty. Always seems to be pretty full at weekends so booking is... More

We went for the veggie set menu which was amazing value for money- huge portions of delicious and authentic Thai food. Defiantly would recommend -have eaten Thai all over and this definitely rates one of the... More

Food was very very good & we all enjoyed our meals. We will... More

Went to this restaurant twice on our recent holiday to Falmouth. We chose the meal for 3 the first time and it was excellent. On our second visit we chose a meal for 4 , food was good but not as good as our first visit 4 days previously. Would recommend it and would visit again.
