We decided to go here with friends for their wedding anniversary dinner, well so pleased we did it was wonderful- the food was outstanding and so was the service. The restaurant was very well set out and it was a Wednesday night and it was...virtually full so what a good sign that was and we’re definitely not disappointed. Will be going again soon 🥂🥂More

Great location. Beautiful decor, fabulous staff, & great Thai food. BEST EVER. Pad Thai chicken was massive and delicious. Pork Belly melts in the mouth. Pineapple chicken cashews fried rice was awesome. All HUGE dishes & unfortunately way to full to try desserts. Very busy...for a Tuesday night but staff were very nice for us not booking (should have as it 's obviously popular) seated straight away & service was fast. Definitely many returns. Unable to fault. Also great value for huge quality meals.More

A reasonable attempt at "Authentic" Thai but definitely had better. Penang curry was watery and lacked any body. The Stir fry beef was it's saving grace - very tasty, as were the friendly staff.

Dumplings were cold . Squid was tough. Spring rolls were horrible. The sweet vans sour pork meant was so fatty and tough - we could not eat it,

We ate here tonight without a reservation and a possible third group member arriving; they set up a spot for this ‘maybe’ and treated us with truly top notch service. I loved the ambience of the natural lighting as well as the restaurant’s - the...whole vibe was so welcoming. Quality glassware, decent size napkins - and incredibly conscientious wait staff. The entree and green curry were excellent - pad Thai flavours not perfect and slightly lukewarm - but the overall experience was excellent and absolutely a class infinitely above Spirit House in terms of service, atmosphere and the uplifting feeling you left with, thank you service staff especially. I know it’s the same owners as SH but this place has it right, definitely lived up to its name - OMMMMMore

"Authentic Thai" as per menu not delivered. Food bland, bathed in basic kiwi sauce, served only just tepid. Mocktails a disgrace in flavour and presentation, one served warm. Charged full price despite expressing our dissatisfaction.
