Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On the expensive side and very long wait time of 45 minutes. No option to eat in and not a particularly salubrious area either. The food was mediocre but at least a large portion.More

Excellent take away service, with covid principles in place. Order on line from a fantastic menu, with genuine real Thai recipes using the freshest ingredients. A very friendly place. Thank you for a lovely experience. Looking forward to returning when the indoor dining opens.

We had takeaway as it is significantly more expensive to eat in. The food we received was very tasty and each serving was enough for 2. Lots of good food. Friendly staff while we waited for the food. Even waiting for everything to be cooked...ftom scratch, it wasn't too long of a wait. Will go again.More

I am in town and really wanted a Thai meal, after googling local Thai restaurants this one came up as open from 5. Arrived at 6pm and asked if I could be seated, the response was, no we're too busy cooking, we can seat you...in about an hour. Note that there was no one in the restaurant, only 2 people at the takeaway section. Went elsewhereMore

As a vegetarian, I've been turned away a number of times from this restaurant because the chef cannot always accommodate such variations in her menu. On the other hand I have been accepted a couple of times, and those times the meals were excellent. They...do charge extra for tofu - its more expensive than meat dishes.More
