Probably the best Thai we have ever had. Started with mixed starter, followed by lamb shank and the too good tom yum pla with egg fried rice and pad thai. Foods were attractively presented and generously proportioned too. Staffs were very friendly and extremely welcoming. One of the best Thai food experience we had. And now waiting for our second...

Stopped there for an evening meal without pre-booking. The place looked nicely busy so we decided to try it. We were also in a hurry but the service was very quick, the staff was very polite. Food was good, just what you would expect from a good Thai. It wasn't over-fancy - it was just nice. This is a place... More

We did not have an enjoyable experience at this restaurant. It was simply terrible from beginning to end. Whilst we were there, the waiters failed to provide a friendly and comfortable atmosphere as we were spoken to in an unwelcoming and almost aggressive tone. The biggest issue we had with this restaurant was the bill. In short, we were led... More

Thought I would try the restaurant on my own and impromptu. Restaurant was almost empty, only 2 tables taken and they wanted to put me at the table by the door... in an empty restaurant. The area is surrounded by restaurants so I chose another one and got a table I wanted. Tip to the restaurant - give the customer... More

The restaurant looks very smart, elegant even but the food was a little underwhelming. I tried Tom Yum Soup then Jungle Curry with Coconut rice. All was OK, but nothing special and my expectation was higher. Service was OK but there were not many customers.

Delicious, hot, tasty, well presented and speedily delivered food. Restaurant delightful. Staff on-the-ball - particularly good for getting in and out in a lunch hour.

The food here is so flavourful and delicious. I worked nearby and used to have the lunch set menu - it's really good value for money, fast service but not rushed and good portion sizes. Fully recommended - we were a work party of 10 people with all different tastes. And not one person was disappointed.

There are a few Thai restaurant around to differentiating yourself is not always east. This place has a good quality feel, nice fittings and furnishings, a little bit upmarket. Menu recommendations; Green Curry with Som Tum salad (spicy). Good service - a really solid experience.
