We were advised to book and we are glad we did. Really tasty food. One of our party said it was possibly the best Thai Green curry they had eaten. Friendly staff and good value

Change of management, it appears, since our last visit... but the food is still reassuringly as good as we remembered and the menu more or less unchanged. Prompt service from a large number of kitchen staff who are always kept busy, even mid-week with takeaways...More
