Ate here last night. Been several times before and it's been excellent. Ordered satay chicken which was cold, so I'm guessing it's pre-cooked and reheated. Waitress was great and took it back to the kitchen. Came back "steaming hot", so, straight out of the microwave then.... Food was just below par in general. Pad Thai was disappointing. Ordered prawn, and... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident when visiting Boscombe. Very friendly waiter. I had the tapas lamb massaman curry with sticky rice and my friend had the chicken pad Thai. We couldn't fault it....we ate every mouthful. If in the area again we would return.

We had a variety of different dishes and some that I had not had before in a Thai restaurant and all of the food was fantastic. It was freshly prepared and presented to a high standard. The bill was £25 each for the food for dinner and we ate a lot of food. Would not hesitate to recommend it but... More

We have been eating at Koh's since they first opened the Boscombe branch. We loved the surroundings, service and lovely consistent Thai food. Prices were always fair, something that is not always true of Thai food restaurants. In the last few years we have been less due to work travel but this place has always been the benchmark we use...

Four of us visited Koh Thai where we usually have great food and great service - not quite so this time. We decide to go for the £25 Tapas Menu. For the starters we expected 4 of everything (not unreasonable we thought) - we actually got 5 Dim Sum and 3 ribs as part of it - we chose not... More

Were sorry to hear you were disappointed with the service you received on your recent visit. The Thai Tasting menu is a bespoke ordering service designed to enhance your experience by trying a variety of dishes. Whilst saving money is not the feature, it can be an added bonus in most menus. This said, the minimum pieces of tapas should... More

Firstly, it smells amazing when you walk in. The service is great but they don't hover over you and try too hard. Then the food came - amazing! I had a penang curry which was up there with the best of them. My partner had the massaman which was the best we'd ever had! Seriously great experience, with high quality... More
