Not really the nicest thai restaurant I have ever been to. We had the squid starter which was chewy and tasteless. That was followed by the prawn in oyster sauce and the chicken in hot sweet and sour sauce. Both had the same base sauce...More

I must admit that I didn't have incredibly high expectations. This place is a small restaurant on one of the main roads out of Belfast. But the food was excellent. A truly hot papaya salad, with a fresh and vibrant taste. Followed by steamed fish...More
