We ordered from Just Eat and went with Banana Leaf because they had the best reviews. It arrived and we started to eat only to find bits of meat in our vegetarian dishes. The only thing that was meat free was the egg fried rice,...More

Ordered online and the food arrived hot and 25 minutes early. Free prawn and Thai crackers were a nice bonus. The crispy duck was good with lots of pancakes but not nearly enough hoisin sauce. Ribs were delicious. Will definitely return .
