We had take away from here & the food was pretty good but not the best. If I could I would give it a 3.5.

Disappointed! I was a regular here weekly due to the real flavour difference. But the cook has changed. Not bad, but no longer stand out. Over souped coconut curries that taste like its from a jar. Like all the rest! Bring back Fon! Great staff...More
