You never fail to disappoint - can't wait for Ringwood to open.

Drove from Wimborne for a take away tonight after our local Thai in Merley had a million hour wait and couldn't even master taking our order on the phone.

Booked a table here but before we went we got a take away delivery first. Two curries arrived cold, very salty, and quite frankly wasn't sure it was even lamb. The 24 hour ribs had NO flavour at all. Tasted like an old cold stew. The crispy fried squid was far from crispy, for 8 pound there was approximately 9... More

the food was excellent. great value for money. My only comment would be that the Dimsum was painfully spicy and there was no dessert menu. Apart from that it was great!

Husbands birthday meal. Arrived and sat in the bar to have cocktails. Atmosphere seems lively and fun, modern as opposed to traditional Thai restaurants we've been to before. Menu was tantalising as Thai food always seems to be and lots to choose from. We were helped by a very efficient barman and then noticed an option for the meal to... More

Absolutely no front of house skills whatsoever. Staff too busy with their heads down to meet & greet. Table not ready so asked to wait in the bar. Young aggressive behind the bar who was in his own world, without one bar sjkill to his name. He was answering back at customers, not us, but very mouthy. Yes the bar... More

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 at all times throughout my visit.... 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
