This charming institution offers food that lives up to the initial impact
Elegant and glamorous in a charmingly traditional way (expect to be welcomed by “Good evening, madam” rather than the “hi guys, how’re you doing today?” greeting that most other establishments in the locale have adopted), this super-charming, super-pretty Bath institution generally offers food that lives up to the initial impact. The fairy lights, fresh flowers, gracious staff wearing traditional Thai garb and beautifully adorned tables all bode well, but quality – especially at peak times – can be patchy, with starters in particular repeatedly falling foul to crimes of under-seasoning. Safe bets at all times, however, include the Thai red/green or Massamam curries, while speciality dishes (including a highly-regarded Drunken Duck) are consistently good. Meanwhile, the restaurant’s own Mini Mart does a roaring trade in supplying all those hard-to-find (in Bath, anyway) Thai and far eastern ingredients alongside freshly prepared ready meals to go: an excellent option for those who failed to book their table at the restaurant in advance.
