Adam visited the old location on a Wednesday evening in December 2016; it was busy but not so busy that reservations were required.
The menu is pretty extensive, but we were looking at the specifically vegetarian section, which provided a decent amount of choice. The starter of spicy tofu rolls (£6.25) was surprisingly refreshing, with interesting herb flavour. The tofu & courgette panang (£10.50) was particularly good - large slabs of well-flavoured tofu and not-overcooked courgette in a sauce that managed to be fragrant without being over-pungent, helped by garnish of shreds of Thai basil. The sticky rice (£3.50) was acceptably sticky but otherwise unremarkable, and provided a good vehicle for enjoying the sauce. Dining companion enjoyed the tofu pad thai (£10.50).
Dessert-wise, there's a small menu, much of which looked interesting; we shared a dish of taro cubes in a coconut-cream sauce (£6), which turned out to be delicately flavoured enough that the subtle flavour of the taro came through as well as the coconut.
Water (still or sparkling) was £1 per person.
Service was a little (but not unacceptably) slow, probably reflecting the busy state of the place.
Adam's verdict: Definitely intending to return, though possibly at a quieter time.
