    I was disappointed with my food. The beef was gristly and tough, not something I would have expected. I found the restaurant extremely hot, they even had several fans on the go, one of which was right behind my head. This was not an enjoyable experience. I have dined twice in the past for lunch. I certainly wouldn't do dinner again.

    It was good, no more no less. Nice effort on the plate presentation, but overall if you are a thai food lover, this was quite average (the level of spiciness is definitely adapted to the Western palate).

    The Thai food quality was absolutely first-class and provided a memorable experience. It was some of the best Thai food we have ever eaten. It was that good. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and service during the meal was spot on. Great selection of menu options and the Thai Green Curry is exceptional and highly recommended.

    Our booking was for 8.30pm. We loved the food however we were rushed by the staff even being asked to choose a dessert before we had finished our main. This I presume was because they were clearing the tables and preparing for the next morning. Luckily we hadn’t opted for a starter as well needless to say we didn’t stay for a dessert

    The crispy filet of Bass was outstanding , the fish was cooked extremely well , not overcooked, and the flavours of the sauce the best I have ever tasted . Penang beef , surprising , I was requested how I liked it cooked. It was sirloin chargrilled and then the Penang curry liberally poured over. also delicious. Maybe an extra chilli would not go amiss.
