Funky Thai Tapas!

Went here tonight for a really good meal - place was packed from 6pm. Really good size portions and tasty dishes.. Don't order too much though! Had the ribs, prawns and fried chicken plus the Panang curry which was lovely.. Great place to visit if you are in town...

Fantastic food and decor. Service needs a bit of fine tuning. You aren't made to feel like they are truly happy to have you there, just going through the motions. Two tapas starters, 3 entrees, 3 rounds of drinks, paid and gone within an hour and a half. I would have appreciated enjoying it all a bit longer. Will return... More

Been going to this place a number of times and the food has never disappointed us. We have been through most of the items on the menu but would always recommend the Green Curry! Last visit was yesterday as we found ourselves in Boscombe and managed to get a booking for 6:15 (I would advice you book on weekends as... More

What an impressive place, great food and atmosphere. The only let down was we had to wait 45 minutes for our mains to come, but they were very busy. Will definitely go again.

Arrived in time to get a table without reserving. Beautiful decor, friendly staff and a wonderful smell to greet us. Where the waitress lacked in expertise she made up for with a warm and cheerful personality. The food was fantastic. A must try if you're visiting Boscombe!

We had heard positive things about Koh Thai. We went in last night at about 8.30p.m, it was busy but we had a table for 2. It took ages for anything to happen after we were given water and places laid. We eventually chose the £25 taster menu. This is not tapas. This is a series of food for 2... More

Hi 201Gilly63, Were sorry to hear the your recent visit was let down by the long waits on food. All our dishes are prepared fresh on site daily however our cooking times should never be longer than 15 minutes for tapas and 20 minutes for curries and stir fires. Im glad to hear our front of house staff were apologetic... More

On phoning to say we'd like a table at 9am, pleasantly surprised by a 9:30pm booking. We ordered our starters and mains at the same time, thinking that we would finish our mains, followed by our starters fairly quickly given the time constraints. How we were mistaken... They all came together. Given we were sat on a table for two,... More

Hi Notimpressedbournemouth, After visiting us around 20 times were sorry to hear that your recent visit fell short of the rest. As ever, we are a Tapas restaurant that encourage a casual and sharing dining experience. We regularly have customers order in excess of 8 dishes at the same time not to meet kitchen closure times but simply because they... More

Had an excellent meal here in May. Good value, great quality and flavours. Nice atmosphere. My one slight complaint would be that the background music was rather loud, making conversation a bit difficult. And on that night the service was a little slow.
