Busy on a Monday evening, as locals obviously know about pre-7pm early bird special. Service and Thai noodle and rice dishes excellent. Opposite Skylon Hotel, decent locals pub Cat & Cage nearby, and on several bus routes between city centre and airport.

We visited here on a Friday evening and this restaurant is clearly very busy and this is for a reason. We hadn't booked and fortunately we managed to get a table but I would recommend booking. The food specialises in Thai food and our favourite...More
