My family have been here a couple times, and the first time we thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered the chicken in peanut sauce which is under the title "Curry" on the menu but unfortunately this time around it came out more of like a stir-fry...More

Setting was nice, clean. Lighting is subdued so feels cosy. Music a little loud if you are wanting to talk. Food tasty as always, plenty of vegetables. One in our group didn't find much meat in her main meal. We felt we were over- serviced...More

The food was wonderful and the service from our waiter was very good, but the whole experience was spoilt by the loud thumping music. Thai culture is calm and relaxing in general, but not on this occasion.

Excellent food at a place we often visit but tonight the sound system was pumping out disco type sound (refuse to call it music). We politely complained and the volume was turned down but the experience was not enjoyable due to the type of sound.
