Our waitress Kana did a beautiful job of talking us through the menu, as we hadn't tried Thai food before. She recommended their tapas option and helped us to choose dishes and drinks to match the spice level and flavours we liked. Through and through a wonderful evening! Thanks Kana!

Totally recommend the restaurant but not so with the take-away... everything micro-waved and chilli-heat instead of flavour... very disappointing... Don't mind paying for good food.

Recently tried this restaurant whilst visiting Portsmouth to see our son and girlfriend. We chose the taster menu to get as wide an impression of the various menu options as possible. This was a good choice although quite pricey at £22-26 per person. The dishes were really tasty and well presented, the drinks options were good and the service was... More

6 of us went and had a really enjoyable evening, the food was cooked to perfection and very flavoursome and the drinks were reasonably priced, what we really enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere, the guys that wait the tables seemed to know the dishes, gave you just the right amount of attention but with no sense of hurrying you, we...

We mistakenly ordered tapas and mains - I say mistakenly because the chicken satay, vegetable tempeh and tofu satay tapas was more than enough for 2 people! It was so good though we ate the lot. The mains were also a nice portion size, but we were so full, we ended up taking it home with us - it was... More

Went here with my partner at the weekend. The place it's self is visually stunning, great decor and lighting giving a great atmosphere. The staff were all friendly and helpful throughout. It has its own cocktail bar which is always a nice touch. The food though was superb! We shared 3 tapas dishes and a main with sticky rice. The... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They were able to guide us in our choice of food and we weren't disappointed. There was plenty of choice and it tasted amazing, especially the ribs..The portion sizes were extremely generous. We had the Thai tasting selection, which at £26 per person may seem expensive but it was excellent value for money.... More
