Most of the Thai classics are offered, with starters like Tod Man Kung shrimp cakes and Thai spring rolls. The menu has a good choice of soups too such as the traditional soup Tod Mun and the coconut milk-based Masaman Thai Kai.
The mains are a mix of noodles, vegetarian dishes, and meat and fish dishes. Staples like Pad Thai come with a choice of meat or can be vegetarian - all can be customised to taste and spice levels. Grilled cod and sea bream come filleted or whole and there’s a nice mix of Thai curries on offer too.
