We had great service and delicious food. Our party of four was very well cared-for, with our 6.30 booking (before going to a show). There was a queue to get in when we left at 8.

We love Atom’s! Been going for 9 years and it is always delicious and well priced. The staff are always warm and friendly. Wished we lived closer to go more often!

Wonderful food and really great to eat somewhere confidently when you are a coeliac. The gluten free options at Atom Thai are plentiful and delicious.
