    Fantastic restaurant and setting. The food traditional Thai was presented and tasted delicious, with the added bonus of friendly and polite staff. We look forward to a return visit.

    Lovely setting and views. Good service. Really enjoyed sharing platter and soft shell crab. Duck and lamb flavoursome and tender. Sirloin flavour good but cooked longer than I prefer. Coconut ice cream delicious.

    My friend and I had our Christmas lunch there, and it was our first visit, but certainly won't be the last. Walking into the restaurant we were amazed to find beautiful lighting and a very pleasant relaxing feeling. The views were spectacular, as was the food, particularly, for me, the Thai green curry. The service was excellent too, and all in all was a wonderful experience, and I can't praise it highly enough. Thank you.
