Had dinner here yesterday evening with our granddaughters. Tom yum was made to suit granddaughters taste and the rest of our meals were perfect and served quickly. Just as good as the meals we have on our visits to Thailand reccomend 100%

This place is tops. Honestly. My biggest issue is they are currently on holiday! The pad Thai and red curry does it for me! Oh yeah with tofu but they do meat options too...quick service, reasonably priced and a fabulous chef. Love it.
