One of Toptable���s favourite hidden gems, Colwyn Bay offers a surprise in the shape of The Tamarind Thai Restaurant. Reliably fantastic food and always excellent service have ensured that The Tamarind is a local favourite and always, always busy. The cosy dining room, complete with Oriental wood carvings and always fresh flowers, is low key and subtle, perfect for those nights out with friends and family whether you���re local to the area or enjoying a holiday in this historic area of North Wales. Chef Noo, renowned for the authenticity of his recipes, offers a wide ranging menu straight from the Bangkok streets. Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit Thailand will be immediately transported back to those balmy South East Asian evenings with one bite of the wonderful food here.

Lovely food

Best Thai meal I have ever had. Tons of choice and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Could do with more than one lager on draft but that is just me being picky

My first time Thaïs was very nice! Our table was a little too small for all the different dishes and sometimes the manager was a bit too friendly, but the food was good and the view also.

Really good authentic Thai food, been here many times, never been disappointed . My only negative is if you are in a group of 4 or more they cant seem to get everybodys meal to the table at the same time.

This restaurant in on the ground floor of the Lyndale Hotel in Old Colwyn. It is closed on Tuesdays. Without question this was the best Thai food we have tasted for some time. It was reasonably priced and delightfully served. Nothing was too much trouble including coping with my food alllergies. We would really recommend it.

Had a great meal, super service by the young waitress (the ONLY waitress). My daughter ordered a desert, started to eat it and found a hair in it . She told the waitress, who immediately called the manager, who removed the dish to get a fresh desert. And that was the last we saw of the desert. It was never... More

This has to be one of the best thais around. The food is consistently delicious. Highly recommend the scallops and mussels. The owners are extremely welcoming and chatty. Dont be put off by the decor or exterior, just go in and enjoy good thai food.
