The food here was really lovely, ufortunately everything else about the restaurant was not. How this place thinks it is covid secure when there is no hand soap/hand sanitizer in the toilets, no toilet roll and cracked seats I have no idea. They got the...drink order wrong (2 drinks) but they did correct this when questioned. Took ages to take our order when there was only two tables with guests. Some staff behind the bar chatting on phones, off duty staff behind the bar having drinks and 2 female staff (don’t know if they were on duty but were certainly going behind the bar and out the back) walking up and down in crop tops! Not exactly professional attire for restaurant staff. Then the automatic tip and charity donation on the bill! Loved the food but I certainly don’t go to a restaurant for a nice meal for that kind of professionalism and service and will not be returning.More

The decor is great, def had the street food vibe to it....The food was good value and tasted amazing. We shared a sharing platter to start and for mains and would thoroughly recommend!More

Went there about a week ago and the food was underwhelming. Pad thai came dry, clumped together like a ball of rubber. It had nothing else to it, not even flavouring. We were seated outside, had to keep going back inside to get the attention...of the staff. When we tried to comment on the food, staff were not having any of it, stating it's the "Head office recipe". Both the food and service was poor and we will certainly not be returning.More

My girlfriend and me went here on a weekend but the place was not that crowded. We enjoyed the indoor seating and was greeted courteously by the staff. The ambience of the place feels homey because it looks like some of the local food establishment...on my home country; The Philippines. We ordered Chicken Katsu Curry, Sweet and Sour Pork, Satay and Iced Tea. The order took less than 15 mins to arrive. The food is no question good and worth the price but the food I liked best is the Chicken Katsu Curry and Iced tea, although the Chicken Katsu Curry seemed to lack some curry sauce as you can see on my picture. In my 3 months here in the UK this place is my no.1 best food I've tasted... so far. Will definitely comeback to try some other food on the menu.More

We eat a lot of Thai food and unfortunately this missed the mark. It was ok but nothing amazing. The service was disappointing as they sat us outside and seemed to forget about us. Had to go and find a waiter every time we needed...something. The restaurant wasn’t busy either so that couldn’t have been to blame.More

I tend to keep a look out for that as family have gluten free but I didn’t see any obvious ones. I’m really sorry, they may if you ask.
