“Eating green curry in a Tudor house is still a novelty” and fans of this slightly incongruous stalwart, tucked away off the High Street, say it’s “still very good in a city blessed with good Orientals”. That said, its cooking “has declined” from when it was Oxford’s top-rated venue in our survey (“how the mighty have fallen”) and, given its “really crammed” and sometimes “noisy” interior, its overall performance only seems fair-to-middling nowadays.

“A real find down a side alley off the High in Oxford”, and occupying a slightly unexpected venue for a Thai – a wood-panelled Tudor-style room in an ancient medieval building; “not quite what it used to be” perhaps (given greater competition in the town nowadays), but it’s “still good”.

“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”.
