Endlessly searching for a place to eat on a busy Saturday and came across this place. It proved a haven for our party of seven. Delicious Thai food, freshly cooked, good quality including pea fritters on special. Reasonably priced and excellent service.

We had an absolutely delicious meal here. The food is some of the best Thai we've had: tasty and cooked to perfection. The service was warm and efficient, and the restaurant offers great value for money in a comfortable but unpretentious setting. Would certainly recommend!
