This place has good quality food as well as wine and can even make a mean cocktail with their weekly specials. Staff are friendly but the venue is small so would recommend booking for a meal.

Not sure what the menu is, worth checking the website. I know the chef spent time in Thailand so the curries are great. It's about a 10min walk from Brook street, just off duke street, opposite the fleece pub
