Good simple Thai. Food was delicious. I had the Pad Thai which was very filling and yum. Service was quick and the waitresses were lovely. In one of the back streets but has a nice outdoor area.

BLAND THAI! Big Disappointment more like it!
We have eaten Thai food (and even cooked it) many times over the past 30 years. Thai Delight served some of the worst Thai we have had.
We were less than impressed with our curry puffs which lacked flavor.
My wife requested that the crushed peanuts with her Pad Thai be put “on the side” – the nuts were left out. THE PRAWNS WERE ALSO LEFT OUT – they were listed as part of the ingredients. When we queried this with the manager, the dish was taken away – well, instead of replacing the dish with a freshly cooked batch of Pad Thai, it was recooked with the prawns being added. YUK! So much for crisp and freshly cooked food.
My pork ginger and ginger was also a big disappointment.

The wait staff was very rude. We wanted to be seated away from the kitchen as the smell was bad and she said it smells everywhere. She was not pleased we moved ourselves to a different place outside. It was smelling bad!!!! Hope the food taste okay.

We were told the meal would be delivered in 30 minutes but we had to make several calls to check up what was going on and even after 90 mins the meal had not arrived. We did not get any calls to let us know what was going on. This is appalling service by any standards. We finished up eating the remnants of the meal delivered on time by the Master of India to our friends. This srrived bang on time and was delicious!
Useless!

This was honestly the best Thai food I’ve ever had (and that’s over the last 35 years)..
The spring rolls were fresh and crispy and very good. I had mixed seafood sweet basil for an entree. Almost made me weep.. shrimp, squid, mussels, scallops, vegetables.. My wife had vegetarian pad Thai and also found it great.
Full bar, cocktail specials and a nice wine list with several by the glass. Very good service. The place is on a quiet corner and offers outside seating.
Highly recommended.
