I cannot comment on the café side as I have only been on Friday or Saturday night, when the Thai chef cooks some excellent Thai food. You won't spend hours deciding on an endless menu as the chef cooks a few dishes well and sticks...More

Really cute lunch date venue. My Mum & I popped in for a naughty 2 course Thai treat from the set menu. Really authentic thai and lovely personal service. Definitely worth wandering down the alley ways to find them!

We popped in for coffee on a Saturday lunchtime. The welcome was warm and friendly, but the coffee wasn't good at all. Other people were having Thai lunches which looked lovely. We'd return, but only for the Thai food.

We visited in the evening when it was Thai night. The place is basic but the food and service were both good. The fact it's BYO also makes it very cost effective.

Had a meal here with the family whilst visiting the area. Having only had the occasional Saturday morning breakfast here we thought it would be worth trying the evening bistro. We weren't disappointed, the food and service was fantastic. We had thai green curry, beef...More

Tucked away in a courtyard off the pedestrian Church Street this is a great find. We visited on a Friday which was Thai night. The green curry was excellent but the Tofu Pad Thai rather dull. The service was very friendly. This is definitely more...More
