What Customers Say

  • What a great find! Great food so fresh,You must give this restaurant a visit.Very friendly staff who went out of their way to make this a visit to remember.Thanks for a great meal.THIS WAS OUR FIRST VISIT AND WILL BE BACK ASAP! BEST CHINESE/ THAI FOOD IN THE CHELMSFORD AREA ---what a find!

    - Trip Advisor, Lynn N 17th May 2018

  • We have visited the Sanuk for many years. It is now under new ownership. We have had a good take away, a meal with friends, and more recently with family. The staff are very friendly and will do anything to make your evening a good experience. At my daughters 18th without asking, they provided a cake with candles , sang happy birthady and gave us all a glass of prosecco, fantastic! I would say they should stay just with Thai food, and not go into less popular chinese dishes. Just my opinion. The food is good, and I will be back.

    - Open Table, Clairet, 11th May 2018

  • We have used this thai restaurant for several years, and the food and staff have always been more than pleasant so we were quite saddened to hear it had been taken over / facelifted. Now We have eaten here again, to our has just got better!!! The quality & presentation of the new dishes are exceptional , and served by very greeting staff. Full marks from us, and good luck with the future. Highly recommend, From the Hunter family.
