Good Thai experience

Visited last evening. Great ambiance and quick service. You want service to be pleasant and efficient not for waiters to be your best friend! Had a banquet for two and they accommodated a switch of dish after some discussion. This would not be possible if they were busy - a bit inflexible. The food... read more

We dined here for a special family occasion on a Saturday night and it was just perfect. Our drinks order was taken immediately which included a fine Thai wine. We had the Thai selection for starters followed by a variety of dishes including chicken, fish, pork and beef. All were perfectly cooked and very tasty with the usual accompaniements of... More

Just gorgeous! I've been to Thailand a few times and for a UK Thai Restuarant it's the best I've been to yet in the UK. Excellent service, food was amazing and considering you got all that the price was very good too. The setting and decor was extremely well done and all very authentic from the moment we walked in....

Very accommodating when we popped in on a Saturday evening and they squeezed us in. Fast service. Lovely, friendly Vietnamese waitress. Fantastic carvings everywhere. Had Kai Yang Sauce Krathiam (#85). Nice flavour but needs more sauce IMHO. 7/10. #88 Kae Phad Khi Mao was delicious so 9/10. Loved the coconut rice too. Highly recommended.

The food is some of the best we have eaten. The service was perfect, the staff are very helpful if you are struggling to choose. The food presentation is outstanding we just couldn't fault it.

We came here for Sunday lunch buffet to celebrate two birthdays. There were nine of us including one disabled lady in a wheelchair and two children. Everyone was well catered for though the disabled access was a little tricky and we had to lift the wheelchair up a few steps. The selection of food was enormous - I probably only... More

Mid December, popped into Thai Emerald for a spot of lunch. What a delight with their set menu for under a tenner! We had an amazing meal and were stuffed, but still had to go back to work. Very friendly staff. Oh, the set menu was only for December. Meal included starter and a main. We had not been to... More

A party of 11 visited on New Years Eve and when we went in it was so busy that we wondered how and when we would get served. How wrong we were. Menus, drinks and food were ordered at a good pace without us feeling rushed or under any pressure. The food was excellent with no complaints from anyone including... More

On Sunday lunchtimes, they do a buffet with a large selection of starters, main courses and desserts. Quality of the food is great and you can help yourself to as much as you like (as many visits as you want). I'm a vegetarian, but my husband loves his meat and there is plenty for both of us to enjoy. The... More
