However, something changed. 1) Reservation: Called to make booking and spoke to a member of staff, who then handed me over to another member of staff, who then handed me over to a third member of... read more

Every now and again, I visit Thamnak Thai because I like to have something rich, exotic and flavorful. I get that at Thamnak. With this being said, I can agree with many patrons that the food is pricey, but because of the taste, I don't mind doing it. I've only sat down and dined twice, and the ambience was lovely,...

I dined hear about a year ago and was quite satisfied with the fare then. Last week I had the misfortune of having lunch here.I had fish which was of a lesser quality than what I would cook myself and I am no chef. My date enjoyed her few shrimps. The food was very overpriced. Obviously I paid for the... More

This area of Trinidad is a good place to be if you're going out for a meal drinks. The food here is good & don't be afraid to ask questions because the staff is friendly. It is also nice that this is within a short drive or cab ride of some of the better bars & clubs in Trinidad.

The service we experienced here on Father's Day 2014 surpassed all expectations. In Trinidad, most fine dining restaurants are not infant friendly (ie. no high chairs and changing facilities) and Tamnak Thai was no different. However, the accommodations the staff (Sarika) made to ensure that our experience was comfortable and our baby had a safe and private space, other than... More

We visited Tamnak Thai on our trip. We were able to get there from our hotel by walking. We had some yummy spring rolls and enjoyed our plates with pad thai and stuffed squid. However, it was extremely expensive and it cost about $80 for two people. There are probably cheaper places to eat at.

This restaurant is located upstairs Apsara. It is perfectly decorated to suit the food, service is excellent. Food quality is very good. This building is an old colonial building which was converted into the two restaurants. You can feel the culture in the food from your first bite. Price is all worth it.

My wife and I went there on one of her nights off while we were in trinidad for the chiefs convention. We sat outside, the road that restaurant is on is a little busy but didn't bother us. There is a really cool koi pond. The food was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who likes tai food.... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times before, had greatly enjoyed its food, and thought it would be a good place to take a small group of five colleagues. What a disappointment! The service was slow and chaotic, one of us got his meal a good 20 minutes after the first one had been served, the food... More
