We eat a lot of Thai food in various places including Thailand and this meal was authentic and really enjoyable. It's not easy to get a booking here.....so plan in advance..it's worth the effort .

We had to wait for a table but it was well worth it ! The service is good and the food delicious. We had the arranged selection for four of us and it was more than enough to eat, lovely quality food. Hope to be back again soon

Lovely meal, good staff and very good lounge singer on. Only popped in for a bite to eat before we went to a birthday but was very impressed and will be back again :-)

I haven't experience Thai food very often,but was pleasantly surprised. We visited this Saturday lunch time, the restaurant was not busy and we were given good service. My starter was the veg spring rolls with chilli sauce, they did have a kick! Main choice I chose chicken pad noodles, again very tasty and there was plenty to eat. The food... More

Very nice food in a good atmosphere. The service was good but the food was a little expensive. Not somewhere to eat every weekend perhaps but worth it once in a while. The location left a little to be desired though and not really in keeping with the style of the restaurant.

When the receptionist at our hotel asked where we were eating that evening & we told her the nearby Thai, she replied "i hope you have booked" as it is very good - she was right. We went on a Sunday evening and there wasn't a table empty. The food is very fresh, tasty and plentiful. In fact a starter... More

I visited here about a month ago, after having been told about it a couple of times from different people. We were seated quickly, in a nice area of the restaurant, which is extremely well decorated (if a little clicheed). And our food orders were taken very promptly, which was a nice surprise. It wasn't busy, but it was steady.... More

Food was tastless, very basic refectory food. There was a lot of fuss in the presentation of the plates but that was not accompanied with descent quality ingredients or actual taste. Portions too small compared to other Thai restaurants and coctails had practically no alcohol! it was all ice and decoration. Atmosphere was OK, but music a bit too loud.

The four of us turned up quite late on a Saturday without a booking and the staff just managed to get us a table. The staff were fast and efficient and the food was nothing short of amazing! Koh Thai Tapas isn't the cheapest place in town, but you won't be disappointed by the staff or the food. Top marks!
