The food here was absolutely fantastic here and the portions were massive. There was a group of us together and they really looked after all of us and gave us a lot of space in the restaurant. They were very friendly with us throughout the time there and would definitely go there again.

Went here with my wife and Mum on a cold Tuesday night at around 7pm. We were informed on arrival that their card payment machine was out of order but there was a cash dispenser just over the road so no problem. We were given complimentary Thai prawn crackers which were fresh and tasty. For starters we enjoyed Thai fish... More
