We went at lunchtime. Big mistake, we were the only customers in this enormous restaurant, hence there wasn't any atmosphere, off duty staff walked in & out in their casual clothes. The food was very poor, most of it was fried in very stale oil. I would have had a better meal buying prepared food from M&S!

Tiien Thai is by popular opinion an excellent authentic Thai restaurant but we understand we cannot please everyone. We are so busy that oils are replaced every day, so no opportunity to be stale. A few of our starters are friend but none of our main courses so this review is a complete mystery. We leave visitors to review the... More

We were staying locally and were walking back to our hotel and came across this Thai restaurant. At any Thai restaurant, we check for Green Papaya salad, during a holiday in Thailand on the recommendation of our friend (a chef in Adelaide, Australia) we tried it loved it and we ate it everyday, sometimes twice. For that reason, if its... More

There are much better Thai restaurants in Bournemouth. I went with my friend for a business meal on a Monday evening, there were four other people in the restaurant. We made our choices and waited about 15 mins for Ribs and Fish cake. My Ribs was sooooo sweetly, our main meal is chicken red curry, beef green curry and prawns... More

There are many contradictions in this review (busy and quiet) (Monday and W/E) and having checked with our staff we have no record of this visit and menu selection. Incidentally our spare ribs are not sweet. We serve authentic Thai food which is freshly prepared and beautifully served. More

I visited Tiien with my four closest friends following an excellent recommendation from a colleague so I was expecting great things. I was unfortunately greatly disappointed by the food, the wine and the service. Blunder number 1 was when we ordered a mixed starter and were served a vegetarian starter. We complained and this was removed without an apology. Blunder... More

It's always a little worrying when you take friends to a restaurant that's new to them. However my fears were soon put to rest, the food was wonderful the service attentive and the atmosphere ideal. The wine waitress was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed a few!! bottles of Fos White Rioja which complimented the food perfectly. Well done and... More

What appears to be authentic and healthy thai food, with good service - although the place was understandably rather busy. Elegant atmosphere and well decorated. As with all thai food its quite pricey but reasonable.

Booked a table at this restaurant as it had high reviews on Tripadvisor. On arrival, the table was still 'being prepared' even though we were 5 mins late. Orders were taken, and starters arrived 20 mins after. The mixed vegetarian starters were very ordinary. The beef salad had the right taste, but the beef slices were full of fat and... More

Heard quite a few positive comments about this restaurant, so we tried it out with some friends. We had a set menu for around £20,- each. The food was ok but nothing more than that I'm afraid compared to other Thai places. I thought it was going to be better than that. The ambience in the restaurant was ok and... More

This is the second time we have all eaten at Tien in Bournemouth, and it was as good this time as the last time. We had drinks in the lounge area, which is chilled and relaxed. We again sat on the large square table at the back of the restaurant as there were 13 of us. Most had starters which... More
