Ignore the pub style exterior! Once inside the exotic smells of Thai cuisine hits you as warmly as the welcome we received. The hostess, dressed authenticly in Thai silks, greeted us (a party of four) and showed us to our table. Ordered drinks arrived promptly....More

Staff are all friend and helpful, and the food is amazing, can get a tad noisy with some customers but the ambience and food make up for it.

The food is excellent and delicious. The service is top class and the atmosphere is cosy and friendly. It gets busy at the weekend so it's best to book. The menu has many choices too. Highly recommended.

Tried this restaurant for the first time and whilst you cannot fault the friendly service the food is way below expectations. We had the beef salad, ribs in wine sauce, green Thai curry with steamed rice. The beef was tough not freshly cooked but sliced...More

I have only given this restaurant 3 stars out of 5 but it's more like a 7 out of 10. The food is tasty but not exceptional. We ate at Rosa's in Spitalfields a few weeks before and you could notice the difference. I fully...More

The experience at this restaurant starts with the warm welcome from the staff. Some of whom often wear the most beautiful traditional costume. The food is fresh and flavoursome. We have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions and are yet to find a dish that...More

Yes, 10% was added to the bill. To be honest I can't recall it be being stated clearly on the menu, but I'm sure it must have been. It tends to be the norm for most restaurants now, but as far as I'm concerned the meal was... More
