Not sure how this Restaurant gets four stars. We ordered a mixed entre which was bland and greasy. The dipping sauce was like dish water. Our main was Massaman curry. Colorless unappealing and exceptionally watery. Rice portions were really small. Would definitely not recommend.

The night we dined the food looked nothing like as vibrant and as full of various ingredients as the pictures would suggest. Our table of five were all quite disappointed. Probably the blandest food of all the Thai restaurants I've been too.
