As ever, crammed with cinema-goers and almost impossible to have a conversation with the person opposite, so it hasn't changed in 10 years if you haven't been for a while. Mrs Wife had a daily special of fish curry with chilli and possibly some black bean and rice included, which was actually quite nice, decent value and a gamble that paid off. My standard beef penang had more red pepper than beef and, of course, when you factor in paying extra for rice, wasn't anything I couldn't do better at home for the same price, and the satay wasn't much fun either, being three rather sat-on slivers of dispirit. It's a canteen, so I should expect less, but came away thinking "cheapskate and cheerless".

Could be so much better. The food is sometimes excellent, sometimes poor.

But what lets this place down the most is that you are crammed in like sardines! They have adopted the wagamama approach by having couples sitting opposite each other on long tables. However when you are sitting there comfortably the waiter plonks another couple right next to you... like being back at school. Very impersonal when you have complete strangers about 10cms either side of you.

I would recommend this place for take away but not to eat in!

A cheap, cheerful alternative to sandwich or burger at lunch. Don't expect a restaurant and see it more as a tasty cafe, whizzing out delicious food at low prices. The pad thai is always a winner, generous portions of thick sweet noodles covered in chilli, nuts, beansprouts and spring onion. The red thai curry too is beautiful and subtlety flavoured with a mound of fluffy steamed rice. Drinks on offer are standard and the service is prompt and smiley. Take a good book or paper and it becomes the perfect place for a solo lunch.
