My partner and I popped in after finding this place in the Entertainment Book - what a beaut find! Walking through corridor to restaurant it's like traveling out of busy Newmarket and into Asia.
We were in a bit of a rush as our movie started in an hour, but the waitresses were very attentive and reassured us that time wouldn't be a problem - which it definitely wasn't. Our food arrived quickly (not so quickly that we were worried about pre-made orders) and it was delicious! I had the duck & veges and the boy had the chilli lamb. Both were fabulous with just the right amount of heat.
The only downside to the whole experience was despite the restaurant being virtually empty when we arrived (one other couple there already) the next couple to walk in were seated at the table next to ours. Interesting choice.
Would highly recommend - great food and fair prices.

Good quality food, good friendly service. We had the steamed mussels to start, and then shared a curry and a soup dish. Both were nice....if you like Thai food then this is definitely a worthwhile visit. I'm planning to try one of the sizzling platters next time we go back...I saw it on another table and it looked great. As usual with Thai restaurants, have coffee and dessert elsewhere, but oif you like authentic Thai mains then this really was very good.
