For something different, we chose this close to our hotel. Not very busy, but cosey decor and friendly service. Food was fresh and well prepared. Decent asian cuisine and service was fairly quite.

Thai Basil is quite a treat. The food is always fresh and tastes fantastic. We had it last for Valentine's Day and it was the best choice.

Food was excellent, the waiter and waitress were very polite and helpful. Everything hit the spot- from the starters platter to the mains. The flavours were great. Decent sized portions. The wine was good. We will return with friends.

The restaurant is founded in 2011. It is new to this town but Thai restaurants are not new to our experiences. We are a group of people who are passionate about food and have an overwhelming desire to create our own family restaurant where we can cook a good quality of food in a good atmosphere.

Not only do we aim to make tasty food we also strive to provide a friendly and excellent service in a smart and intimate dinning atmosphere.Our high standards of cleanliness are proven by achieving a5-star rating in Food Hygiene. We also have an excellent reputation given by our customers on Trip Advisor which ranks us amongst the top restaurants in Skipton. You can trust us to ensure that you will spend a wonderful time here, and you will want to come back again and again.
