Hi there, thanks for the message. The truth is it fluctuates. Generally I'd recommend people to book 3 to 4 days in advance as we are only a small restaurant with just 9 tables. In March however, it's pretty busy so I'd say... More

Description
Gourmet Thai restaurant with a view through The Photo Gallery. Beautiful, chic, cosy and personal. We open at 12pm and remain open all day until 11pm (be aware that we may close early at 10pm if the restaurant is quiet so best to book for late sittings). Authentic Thai food with true Thai flavour using only the freshest ingredients and the finest cuts of meat. We also have a small selection of vegetarian dishes and an extensive wine and designer cocktail list. We offer you a fine dining experience in a creative atmosphere providing the highest standards for a discerning clientele. Please note that we are not a budget backpacker restaurant, we offer the best quality authentic Thai food around.
