Evening meal

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.

There was a power outage, and the kitchen could not operate. No sign of management to offer an apology.

Good day RetiredPornStar, Its a shame you felt it necessary to review our restaurant as 'poor' seeing as you were unfortunately unable to even try the food on your visit due to the untimely power outage. As Im sure can understand this was not intentional, and we did in fact have 2 managers and a director on site not only... More

Lovely atmosphere in this small but well designed restaurant. Staff were lovely and really helpful. Menu selection was excellent and we have had Thai food in many places but this ranks as one of the best. Can't wait to go again!!

Good day b00giew00gie, Im sorry to hear that your recent visit didn't live up to the high standards you rightly expected. A 9.15pm arrival is ample time to enjoy a meal with us as the kitchen does close at 10.00pm Sunday - Thursday, however we do encourage our staff to politely let customers know as it gets closer to 9.30pm...
