Located between 2 other Thai restaurants, we chose this location for its extensive menu and the fact the eating area was located above a shop (we hoped it was a hidden gem that it would be foolish to overlook)....

The food was pretty bland, (we had chicken Massaman, Sweet & Sour Pork and Stir Fried Veg with Jasmine Rice).. the rice was dry and the sweet and sour wasn’t great. Massaman wasn’t too bad but didn’t have the chilli kick to it to really make it.

We paid £8 for a cocktail that was all syrup, and no alcohol.

The serving staff were nice enough, but one had a very poor grasp of English and the other spilled the garlic and chilli sauce (this was the tastiest part of the meal and clearly bottled and not home made) all over the floor next to our table.

Underwhelming and an over all disappointing location to eat.

Had a fabulous early evening meal here straight after spending all day on Fells. Wonderful starter of spring roll and prawn toast. They also brought big bowl of thai prawn crackers. Main was Thai green curry and chicken and stir fry veg in garlic sauce from £13.95 two course early evening menu. Great food. Lovely decor. Will definitely be back.

We had a two visits to this restaurant whilst visiting over Easter. Both times the hostess and waiting staff were very friendly, and paid special attention to my dietary requirements (I have Coeliac disease so require Gluten Free food). The food was really tasty.

For what you get it’s fairly pricey.

If you are going for A couple of courses and not planning to spend the night then it’s ok. But I’ve eaten in better Thai restaurants for cheaper.

Clearly aimed at tourists. We were in and out in an hour. I wouldn’t bother going back.
