The food was average. Customer service was shocking . Not worth the wait. Very pricey for the amount of food.

Red curry with duck was so tasty! Ox tongue was a highlight... Every dish we ordered the other day was so delicious. Have to mention the deep flied ice cream! It's quite a creative way and very tasty!

It was quite busy and had to wait 30 mins to get a table, after that service was quick. Peanut skewers weren't very good but the spring rolls were. BBQ beef was nice An average meal

Curry puffs and beef masaman, that's all one really needs to say. No wait for a table, seated, orders taken and food received in a timely manor. Service was lovely and the food was amazing (and well priced for what you get). Can't wait to go back.

We come here regularly and love the fried ice cream Service is a bit rushed.... And it's not the most relaxing pace... But the food is great. Arrive early if you don't want to wait in a queue for a table
