Never heard or knew about his place when we found out about it we thought let's give it a go. Once you enter through the doors it's like your in a total different country very similar to Thai restaurants I visited in Bangkok. We had been left waiting at the bar with no one acknowledging us for 10 mins but... More

The food was tasty but service was not there at all and I even had to go to the team of staff gathering round by the bar to ask for a folk as they forgotten to replace mine from my starters!

If you live in Cheltenham and haven't dined here, you should. It has a lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and the food is great.

Dined on a Saturday for the first time and was very impressed. We had the spicy banquet for 2 and loved every part of it!! Can't wait to go again - won't be waiting for the next anniversary. Do book - it was full and people were being turned away

We dined here lately with visitors and everybody was extremely pleased with our choices in this super setting. We were greeted by the friendly staff and our menus and drinks were brought to us immediately. The selection of starters was enjoyed by all and the curries and stir fries were delicious. All meals were complimented with great wines and beers.... More

I have been eating in this restaurant or over 5 years and have never been disappointed. I only joined Tripadvisor in June and forgot to write a review for one of my favourite restaurants on my own doorstep. The Emerald has great food, a great menu choice, reasonably priced and a good variety of wine coupled with terrific surroundings and... More

Nice food but expensive. The restaurant is beautiful though inside and out. Go there for a special occasion. The staff bend over backwards and even bow to you!!

I've lost count of the amount of meals I've had here and I'm yet to have a bad one. It's my "local" Thai restaurant, so tend to eat here when we fancy Thai (which is often!). We tend to eat in the stunning restaurant with family/friends but often have a takeaway. The guys know us and treat us well and... More

a birthday booking, and certainly had the wow factor when you enter. fantastic decor with wall and table carvings. the food was pretty good but very well presented. service fantastic. had the " jungle curry" which was more soup like, other dishes looked great, so may have somethhing less radical next time. well worth a visit

We were advised to book this Thai restaurant over the others in town. We were surprised that for the size of the place (huge) there wasn't a maître d', and waited quite a while to be shown to our table. The decor was gorgeous, intricate wall and table carvings - very pretty. The food was mediocre - more attention had... More
