very hot place, upstairs is not as nice as downstairs. we requested to go outside which was then a lot nicer and bareable. drinks were pretty overpriced for what they were.

was then charged a no show fee after we left, £20!! phoned then they said they’d refund time then charged me another £20, still no refund!

The Service was very odd, I think if the waiter decided you are not a good table... he just leaves you without taking plates away... or asking if we want more to drink Etc.

We tried to get the attention of other service people but they ignored our attention.

they did eventually Apologise..

The food is good.. though so if you want to go and eat some thai...with random bad service.... I Would recommend it only for the food and some of the cocktails are nice

Appalling really.

This is a wonderful find at the far end of Bath Street. Although the style and ambience has a young student vibe ( indeed most of the tables which were booked seemed to be all about the cocktails which the bar apparently is famous for), older diners shouldn't be put off by this as the food is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone and am looking forward to a return visit.

Took forever just pour a pint and get us premade cocktails. Let the experience down. Plus didn’t come back to ask if we want anything else when our glasses were empty. Had to catch a member of staff as they were passing . Again our next order of two pints took about 10mins to arrive.

Booked in for a table at quarter past three on Saturday afternoon. We arrived on time for our booking. Really enjoyed the cocktails and we were sat outside in the nice weather, so we were enjoying ourselves. We ordered food and then whilst my partner was still eating his meal we were told we only had 15 minutes left on our table and could they get us any last drinks. This was at half past four. No one told us when we sat down that we only had an hour and a half at the table. We felt rushed out even more when the waitress brought over the bill without us asking for it. Would have quite happily have stayed there all night but we were forced out after an hour and a half.

We booked a table for a meal prior to going to the King's Theatre for a show, nice comfortable place to eat, food was good and prices are reasonable, limited selection of beers but was ok with Guinness, cocktails for my wife was fine, plenty of alcohol content, overall enjoyed our visit, would go back again.

First time there and we would definitely go back. Even though I booked inside the weather was lovely and they gave us an outside table. The service was great, drinks delicious and we had the Thai sharing platter which was superb. If it had not been for the fact that we had dinner booked elsewhere we would have stayed all day

4 people had 3 different dishes. We all agreed that they weren't the best, and not all that authentically Thai (one of us worked in Thailand for 2 years and we all consume plenty of Thai food). The Pad Thai lacked the fresh flavours it should have, there wasn't any trace of Thai basil in one person's dish and the mushroom sauce used made it very sweet. The jungle curry was more watery than any I have had before. The flavour was OK, but no better than that.

When booking Tiki bar, didn’t expect our table to then be taken to sit upstairs with zero decor, ambience or vibe that you’d affiliate with Tiki bar. I gather this is the ‘kitsch inn’ section. View of the bar was a mess with a computer and boxes stacked up it was as if we’d been sat in a stockroom. Asked to be moved downstairs and response was rather blunt. Cocktails were delicious but left after the first round.
