What’s so good about it?
This popular restaurant on one of the coastal resorts main streets was opened in July 2010 following six months of improvements. It is a busy restaurant, serving Thai and Chinese food, where you’ll often find all of the tables taken. The owners also raised thousands of pounds to build The Lytham St Annes School to help more than 100 children in a remote area of Nepal.
On the menu
There is a dizzying choice of meals in the almost 20 page menu including Pandan chicken and seafood dishes as well as classics like Thai red curry and shredded crispy beef. We chose the chicken satay skewers and fried pork dumpling for starters and duck green curry and phad thai for mains. There is also an extensive banquet menu.
The lovely interior of the restaurant is filled with items that the owners have collected from across Asia and is combined with contemporary touches.
Friendly, fast and efficient. The restaurant was almost full despite it only being a Tuesday night. It is wise to book, particularly at weekends.
Two of us enjoyed two courses, wine, a soft drink each and coffees for just over £50.
