We came on a very busy Saturday night when you had a number of large parties in who were very loud and insisted in shouting at each other across the table. Everything else was great, food,service and value for money. We will be back and we will recommend you to our friends.Next time we book we will ask about large party bookings first and will probably seek to avoid being in the restaurant at the same time.

We always bring visiting friends here, by far the best place to eat, drink good wine and catch up in Reading. Amazing every time.

I had a lovely evening here with my parents who both enjoyed the beef rib which was beautifully tender. The raviolo in the Thai broth was also delicious. We will definitely be coming back.

Had such a lovely meal, nice atmosphere, service was excellent as was the food. Much better in comparison to the more ‘established’ restaurants in Reading. Will be definitely recommending to friends. Thank you!
