SAWASDEE KHA,
The flavours of Thai cooking are easy to identify: Lemon Grass, Fish Sauce, Coriander, Galangal, Garlic, Sweet Basil and Coconut Milk; all combined to make a harmonious and unforgettable experience, as is its aesthetics.


With its philosophy of decorated dishes, beautifully set out in small groups, accompanied with exquisite vegetable carvings and complemented with tiny bowls of clear soup steaming beside communal pots of fluffy fragrant rice. All elegantly placed together to be served in the manner for sharing.
Thai food is known for its diversity,< as each dish reflects heavily upon its geographical origins, thus by drawing upon these influences we can create stunning culinary masterpieces.
But its popularity has grown of recent, corresponding to today’s genre of nutritional thinking, as Thai cooking emphasises upon fresh ingredients, no artificial enhancements and the preserving of flavours.

Nice food. Nice staff. I counted nine members of staff walking around! Maybe bit more atmosphere would be nice. We would of happily of sat and enjoyed another bottle of wine but our wine cooler was taken and wasn’t offered another drink.

Arrived early but still greeted with request to be out before next service (which was 2hrs away), so not particularly welcoming. Also took a while to get attention to get bill which was a little inconsistent with the greeting. Apart from that service was fine despite reataurant being busy. Food was very good and prompt and well worth the money.

Spotlessly clean with very attentive staff. Nice comfortable atmosphere. Our food was very good, jungle curry, sticky rice, ped phad khing (chicken & ginger) plus noodles. Thought the noodles were a bit dense and lacking in flavour but overall good food. The house red wine was very drinkable too. Its very local to us and a great restaurant to visit nearby.

Food is always good service was a bit slower than normal and the pop up beach has slightly restricted the view.

In the summer it’s so nice to sit outside and enjoy the view. Sure there is airplane noise but for some that’s part of the attraction otherwise you can sit inside and not get that side of the experience.

But food is always brilliant

A little gem tucked away on the Docklands riverside, the ambience was perfect as we dined al fresco watching surfers & wakeboarders - it felt like we were on holiday. The service was fantastic - attentive & friendly. The food was wonderful - fresh and the choice plentiful. Couldn't fault anything and would definitely go again.

Really good, though not exceptional, Thai food. Lovely ambiance; looking out over the Royal Docks on a beautiful sunny day was a treat, though I’m sure it would be just as lovely at night with the lights reflected in the water.

Service was prompt and friendly. A fine neighbourhood restaurant

Food was good but kind of lukewarm when we received the beef green curry and the beef were lost somewhere in the gravy and packed with veg instead of beef.I have mentioned to the staff but as if they don’t take customer feedback seriously.Service was not I expected as No one came to the table to take order until you have to look for someone or grab attention.No one came to ask how was my food but I saw waiters going to other tables but completely ignored my table.My partner loves Thai food that’s why we went there for a special occasion.Manager should take customer service seriously as myself GM of a restaurant

It's nice to find a good restaurant in this area as it is SPARSE for tasty food! I had the red duck curry and if the duck had been tender (it was tough) then I would have given this a five star. The flavours were delicious and the chargrilled mushrooms to start were amazing with the fresh lime and chilli sauce on them (very spicy!). We also had the INCREDIBLE chilli martini which was just the most fantastic cocktail!
Service was on the slow side but always very friendly (the guy bringing the drinks said ' spicy spicy spicy' and looked concerned that we didn't realise it would be properly hot. It's fair enough since so many Thai restaurants seem to dampen down the heat of their food for western palates (which is fair enough, I can't handle FULL thai heat but still like it very hot!).
I'd recommend if you want a tasty meal and are stuck at Excel for a weekend!

The atmosphere was very good and the staff were welcoming and attentive until the end when we were left alone a bit too long as they prioritised packing up for the night over checking if customers wanted anything else (we would have had more cocktails!!) or even the bill!
The decor was interesting and location on waterfront has fabulous views.
Overall I think the food was a bit disappointing. My duck was over cooked and rice was tasteless but the starters were very good.
I would go again but choose different mains and see if it could be better.
