I love Thai; and at home we have a great Thai restaurant. But I must say this is certainly worthy of its awards. Staff great. Food delicious. Presentation!!!! Outstanding. They certainly go the extra mile. It was packed too, so that says it all.

Stopped in here just for a dessert as some of the group fancied a banana fritter however we were all quite dissapointed. I had the coconut icecream which was just ok.
