“In a location more reminiscent of a Tudor tearoom” than one befitting its Thai menu, this “quirky” and “busy” (“cramped and noisy”) staple in a medieval building down a passageway off the High “remains a delight”. Its classics dishes may “have lost the epic qualities they had a few years back” (“nice but veering unpredictably from the bland to the very spicy”), but “it’s still better than other Asians in the very centre of town”.
This “quirky staple”, hidden just off the High Street in a rather amazing Tudor building, has long been a top tip locally for its superior Thai cuisine; it “gets very busy in the evening when quality can suffer, but visit at lunchtime and the food is brilliant”.
“Still going strong” and “still serving some of the best Thai food in the UK” outside of London – this atmospheric haunt occupies a quirky, medieval building, hidden away just off the High Street, and its “Tudor setting and Thai accoutrements blend seamlessly for a great overall ambience”.
“A quirky old building”, just off the High, has long hosted this “consistently high-scoring” Thai favourite; “others in town may have taken pole position”, but – with its “fragrant” and “authentic” dishes – it “remains a safe-as-houses choice for superior city-centre food”.
