    Bitterly disappointed as we got to the restaurant to find it had been closed for several weeks for refurbishment but had allowed us to book.

    Booked a table for 1230 on Monday 27th June through open table. Got an email reminder the day before to confirm I was still going. Turned up at the restaurant to find out they had been closed since early June and didn’t reopen until early July. Appalled that Open Table allowed us to book a table in a closed restaurant!!

    Walked out after 40 minutes, ignored whilst staff served diners who came in after us. Wasted £20 on a taxi to ensure we arrived on time, we and friends and family have eaten there a lot before, but never again. Seated, given menus and then forgotten and only ten covers in, so hardly exceptionally busy

    Portion size just right and delicious food. Lunch menu great value for money with plentyof choice, ribs beautiful and chicken satay. Food was fresh, restaurant was clean. Only down fall wasn't aware of any 10 % service charge, I dont know what this was for. Staff attentive.

    Excellent dinner here. The food was gorgeous. The Try Thai starter platter was huge and was easily enough for 2 people to share. The mains were incredibly tasty. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect, everyone was enjoying themselves and the food. We'll be back, many thanks!

    I was quite disappointed with my meal, I have the same main every time I come, stir fried chilli paste and sweet basil with vegetables and it’s normally delicious. On this occasion it was bitter and the overriding taste was chilli and instead of a nice light sauce it was quite gloopy so I only ate about 20% off it

    Best Thai restaurant we have ever eaten in and that’s the reason we visit it so often. Love the early bird menu cause it has all the favourite dishes on. Such a large choice on normal menu too. If I lived in Manchester City centre I’d eat here every day 😋

    Food was amazing, but it was the service which let them down. It was busy, but didn’t seem many staff. Slow to take order, and really slow to come and take payment once the bill had been delivered. Restaurant was great, good atmosphere, busy, and attractive.

    Everything was great except for the £5 per head deposit required to make a big booking. Our booking was at 12pm on a Tuesday and you wanted a £125 deposit. This is prohibitive and bad for your business. Yes at peak time on a weekend i would understand. We simply booked 3 tables of 6 for free, 20 turned up and no-one battered an eyelid. In addition there were plenty of tables free for other customers, many of which had simply walked in anyway. I offered to give a smaller deposit and was quite abruptly told no. I then offered to pat full deposit but 2 days after the reservation, and was told no again, need the money now. Quite off putting and bad for your business. Its only because we like the food so much and for old times sake, that we preserved and came anyway. The food was gorgeous, but many would be put off by the reservation process i would have thought. And for our booking time, the requirement for a large deposit is not really serving any purpose for your business. The meal was only £7.50, which is great value of course, but makes the deposit if £5 very big in comparison. We loved the experience once we got there, dont get me wrong.
