This “fantastic local Thai restaurant” has built a large local fan base over four decades, with its “ultra-consistent good food – nothing too exciting, but you’ll see lots of families and Asian diners here”. For the full atmospheric experience, eat from northern Thai-style low tables while sitting on cushions in the ‘khan tok’ room. Top Tip: “the amazing ‘ped yang’ duck!”.

It’s been turning out stir fries and curries for over four decades, but “the food is always incredible” at this upbeat Thai, with a low-tabled northern-Thai style ‘khan tok room’; shout-outs this year for the “good-value set lunch” and “good support for gluten-free diners”. “We love it!”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
