We have visited this Thai quite a few times over the last year and never been disappointed. Can be very busy so choose your time and book in advance.

Great menu and restaurant surroundings were modern and clean. Waiter/Owner was so helpful and fun too. The food was fresh and amazing and we have been back.

I've been a regular at this Thai restaurant for several years now and the quality of food remains the finest available. Regulars to Thai cuisine will see all the usual dishes here, but the fresh, seasonal produce makes for an ever changing experience on a menu that appears not to change! As everything is made fresh to order, you can... More

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy and you would probably have to book if coming at the weekend. It's quite small and cosy but lacking a bit of colour. We were swiftly shown to our table and given the menus but had to wait about 15 minutes before we could attract someones... More

We have regularly enjoyed a lunch here for over three years and the occasional family dinner. Exceptionally clean with polite and attentive service. Consistently high standards of quality Tai food. Tremendous value at lunch time. Once you have tried it you will be back for more. Handy parking in the Market car park and near to the station and cinema.

Fresh and delicious. The service is warm and friendly. The menu is varied and all the produce is locally sourced. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 'banquet' meal at the King of Thai restaurant. This restaurant serves first class Thai style food. The owner and team are very genuine and pleased to provide an excellent gastronomic experience.

Had a very nice meal here recently. Having not had thai food for many years we opted for the midrange set menu. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, and I was given some extra rice when I asked for some. Definitely will return.

Called in second Saturday in February without booking and although it was very busy they found us a place. Staff were very pleasant and service was excellent, the food was fantastic and the portion sizes superb. In all, whilst the price may not be for a low budget the quality of food and the Service that accompanies it will make... More
