Then it was over to the “students” to have a try. Chef was on hand to offer extra help where needed. Tanya and her Mum got straight into preparing the ingredients for the spring roll filling.

Hard to fault.  Great location.  Smart, stylish, modern decor. Welcoming staff.  Efficient service and the best Thai food to be had anywhere in Essex.

Lunch times offer “Thai tapas”, which are great value and allow for sampling several small dishes, which are ideal for sharing.  If, like me you struggle to choose from the array of tasty sounding options, they off “big plate” sets, with a  complete meal, are a good choice.  They also allow for prompt service if you need to get back to work inside an hour.

Although all the food is cooked on site from fresh, we’re assured.   You only have to taste it, to know.

The evening offers more extensive options.  The red curry is, in my opinion, is unsurpassed, although the signature squid dish is it’s rival.  The tempura vegetables are sweet and succulent in a light crispy batter.
