    Big menu to choose from, staff are very helpful if you can’t decide because everything sounds delicious! There was four of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our food, hot green Thai curry & tempura veg was lovely.

    The meal overall was pretty good. The starters were excellent. The red duck curry and the pad thai were both too sweet for our taste but ok. Stir fried king prawns were good and the veg curry very good too. The table spacings were not great, the table next to us felt very close. A metre maybe, definitely not 2m. And was not happy that the main waitress taking orders etc as she had no face mask and kept getting very close to us and standing over us to speak.

    The quality of the food was as good as I remember from a few years ago. The curries are particularly good but my children really enjoyed the stir fries.
