For £10.95 for two courses the lunch was not only fresh and tasty, full of flavour but great value in lovely surroundings. Service was friendly and good.

5. Years to the day since we held our wedding reception here and I would do it all again at the drop of a hat. Fridays and Saturdays this place is always buzzing. For a quieter time, try and go mid-week. The food is genuinely, the most authentic Asian and oriental food outside of the Far East. On a recent... More

I'm not sure why we hadn't been there in such a long time but we will be going back again soon as the good is delicious and the service is excellent. A 10% service charge is automatically included on your bill but we were happy with that

Wasn't intending to dine there however saw the £10 mid week special of 2 courses. Knowing the quality of the food I had to go in. Wasn't disappointed at all. While looking at the... More

Met for a lunch with a group of friends; found the food varied, freshly cooked and very tasty. Staff were informal, friendly and didn't rush us. The midweek lunch deal was good value [and there was a real ale pub below so the drinks were great!

Fresh food and delicious meals. A range of dishes offered and with excellent service. The staff are friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is superb. There is a buffet on Sundays and the food on offer is the same excellent standard as the a la carte menu. I have been eating there for years and the standard has never dropped... More

One of the best Thai meals I've had. Ate here with a group of about 12 & arrived without booking on a Tuesday  evening, although they were busy they were able to accommodate us. The restaurant is located on a fixed barge just outside of Peterborough town centre & there is a separate bar downstairs that serves a wide range... More

I visited with some work colleagues for the first time and had a excellent meal. They have a very good selection of dishes on the menu but we ended choosing a set meal as it had something for everyone. From the starters through the main courses you could not fault it. The portion sizes were good and the food was... More

We visited here on 11/1/17. It's my first time here in many years. The restaurant is pleasant in a unique setting and the staff are polite. Our starters were nice (Tempura Prawns and Heavenly beef), for our main courses we had Pad Gra Praw with chicken which was about 70% gristle on both my wife and my dish. Very disappointing... More
