Best Thai Food I've ever had!

The food is amazing, without doubt some of the best Thai food on the south coast and with great service as well. Having the tapas is great as you get to try a number of different dishes that are all equally tasty.

Me and my boyfriend went Saturday the 27th of June to this place which was very close to out hotel and that looked pretty inviting from outside. We were pretty happy when we went in but then it all began... I'm not the person to make a complaint usually ( I work in hospitality too) but I had no choice.... More

Ambience good and nice cocktails, but when busy drinks service very slow. Not great value for money I'd say overall and food not very spicy (and I'm a wimp!) don't get me wrong - tasted good/well cooked, but just not that 'zing' to make it stand out. I went as a large group, so will give them another go as... More

This place is always busy so don't go if you want a quiet meal. Staff are friendly and food is great but service can be a bit slow when reordering drinks.

Came here at a very busy time of the evening. Manage to find a seat in the bar and ordered cocktails. Very good and the young bar man really looked after us. As the evening quietened down the manageress came over to us to see if we wanted to order anything. We ordered some tapas dishes and were even given... More

We were in Bournemouth for one night and unusually I did not consult Tripadviser. We walked down from the Premier Inn where we were staying and after a pint of real ale in the nearby Goat and Tricycle, we went into the Thai Tapas. We ordered 6 of the tapas dishes, expecting them to be of a similar size to... More

Came here for a dinner with business colleagues. Had an excellent G&T at the bar before being seated and as our hosts had eaten here before we chose to allow the staff to "feed us". Starters were quickly served and the quality of the food immediately obvious, as was the warning that some dishes were "hot". In fact I suspect... More

Visited with my husband and two kids (6 & 2). It was cheeky that they priced the 'sauce' at £9 but it didn't include rice/noodles, which had to be added at around £4.25! When it arrived it reminded me of my own pork with ginger dish that I've cooked several times at home! It didn't taste any better. We ordered... More

Great food,service and welcome. not expensive and very generous portions. We went to the one in Boscombe which was near our Hotel. Not a nice area, so I'd advise getting a taxi if you live a distance away
