Don't be put off by the fact that this restaurant is on the main road or that the decor is simplistic. If you want genuine Thai food this is the place to come. We had jumbo king prawns chosen at the fish counter and chicken...More

Swift friendly service without any pressure. We went for lunch and dinner several time as the location from movenpick was very convenient. Communication was excellent and if they didn't understand that grabbed someone that did. Fast to bring food, amazing flavours and very cheap. This...More

Lovely staff but didn’t receive the food we ordered. The food that arrived, although not bad, was no more than average. One of the dishes was a curry that the spices hadn’t been cooked in and was raw and not great. We did complain in...More

The lobster was very rich, and the seafood glaze was to die for! I really loved these dishes. But the place was deserted almost all the time. To be fair, there was only one place that was packed most of the time, and everything else...More
