Michelin Chef Review...

I visited the Koh towards the latter part of last year with a very close friend. Being a Michelin chef I am highly critical of every restaurant / food outlet I visit on any occasion. I expect to be greeted by a friendly host and waitress accordingly. I also expect prompt, and courteous service... read more

This is a fabulous place in a not very nice part of town; transport this to Central London and there would be queues out of the door. Excellent quality food in generous tapas portions, genuinely enough for two to share without a fistfight. We had the crispy squid, crispy beef and tempura prawns - am so having the fish cakes...

My other half treated me to a tasty Thai adventure last night for my birthday in Koh Boscombe. Its always been a mental battle for to eat food like this due to some rather bad experiences. This place though simply blew my taste buds away and now i know what all my friends have been talking about. We mixed it... More

My wife and I used a couple of Elite Loving vouchers to treat ourselves on a Sunday evening. We were greeted warmly, declared our vouchers and the service never changed. The atmosphere made by subtle music and friendly staff. The cocktails were nicely presented and full flavor, they hit the mark. The choice of tapas wide, we had fish cakes,... More

This was not our first visit to this restaurant and in fact we have been there and another branch in Bournemouth 4/5 times now. Boscombe is much the quieter of the two though they do play music over their system so it isn't that quiet. Four of us went on a Sunday evening the day after Valentines Day but there... More

We arrived without booking and were very pleased to have a table as there were quite a few other patrons. Lovely Thai food and ambiance, most unexpected.

booked an impromptu late lunch for 4 Only patrons in restaurant so service quick as you would expect - can only comment on food as no atmosphere due to being empty. Asked if we like spicy - ordered a set tapas menu - food tasty and a good variety. Fair value for money. Will return at a busier time.

We enjoyed this very much. My wife had never been a lover of Thai food before but this converted her. The food was first class, well presented, well cooked and really tasty. The staff were attentive without going OTT and we really enjoyed the evening although the coffee was horrible but "whatever" we loved the meal and the restaurant and... More

Went here for a friend's 30th birthday after being told how great it was, think we may of had a bad bunch but still would never return to a koh restaurant for the way we had been treated. The staff or teen can't be bothered style attitude set the what was a down fall of the experience. No complementary thai... More

Dear Gordon123456786, Having read your review and investigated the complaint with our team, I would like to make the following points: 1. You we were not treated in a way that your first sentence would suggest.
