We held our very successful Christmas lunch there last year and have decided to return as the food was so good, the locale attractive and lots of parking nearby. We will have a Thai banquet consisting of two entrees, four main courses, steamed rice, dessert, coffee or tea for $29 per head.  They can cater for vegetarians - please specify any special dietary requirements when you book. Corkage is $3 per bottle. Paid parking is across the road.
