    A small cafe that books out. Excellent, dinner running food, pricey but worth it (top end quality). Store friendly, professional staff. Book early.

    Sadly for us, on the night we visited, the restaurant was not well set up. There was a large table in the middle of the floor, which was extremely noisy, but apart from the racket, the seating configuration had been so poorly thought out, we were literally pinned in the corner, unable to move or go to the toilet without having to ask other diners to move. It was embarrassing. The waitress couldn't even get near our table to deliver our food!! Eventually, realising our predicament, she asked if we'd like to move to another table for dessert (which we did), but it was a real kerfuffle. That's the bad stuff! The food was excellent, apart from the duck, which was very chewy. That was the only dish which let the menu down - the rest was delicious. We will go again - hoping that next time, any large, long-table bookings are placed up against the wall as you enter, with the rest of the room free to move and go to the restroom when required. Teething issues I expect, from a relatively new restaurant, but please don't do that again - it really detracted from our night.

    The food was delicious. The staff were very pleasant and service was very good. Very reasonably priced too! I’ve made another reservation because we enjoyed it so much.

    A local Thai which is worth trying. I read about this restaurant and we tried the prawn cakes, prawn betal leaf as an entree and the green curry with eggplant and added the brisket + rice. It was all delicious and we would go back. The restaurant was busy so the service was a bit slow however we were not in a rush and had a 1.45 hour slot to dine
