Looks unassuming but the food is amazing. Delicious beef massaman, green thai curry and pad thai. Waiter was very pleasant and the portion sizes were just right. Will definitely be back.

My partner and I have eaten here 4 or 5 times and would go back again and again! The service is friendly and polite, the food is absolutely fantastic, I cannot fault it at all. It arrives quickly, hot, fresh and delicious. It may not look fancy on the outside, but it doesn't need to be. It's humble, and it's... More

The food was excellent in taste and value. Loved the green curry and coconut rice. Wouldn't recommend for a special night out, but if I was more local, would definitely pop in for a good Thai meal.

Thought we would try something new and ventured a little further out than normally would. Service was extremely slow as there was only 1 person tending to all the tables. We weren't offered drinks straight away an weren't told there was any particular wait on food. When the mains come however they were lovely but the portions could have been... More

We chose here for a midweek meal (Thurs eve). Based on the good reviews and our love of Thai food, we thought we would give it a try. We ordered beef chilli basil, chicken cashew, pad Thai noodles and rice. The rice was cooked well. The meat was overlooked and chewy and the noodles were so chewy I almost choked... More

Northampton is not a food lover's paradise, but the Thai Nam Tip serves excellent, authentic Thai food. Everything is freshly cooked and perfectly spiced. If you are a vegetarian, as we are, there is a very good range of dishes to choose from and the chef will gladly alter your dish to suit your needs. For example, I requested that... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the food in this establishment. Having returned from a visit to New York where we ate a great deal of brilliant thai food, my friend and I found ourselves saddened by the lack of decent east asian food in Northampton. This place easily makes up for all the bad east asian food in the... More

Thai Nam Tip is an excellent choice for an intimate family celebration. The food is authentic Thai cuisine done to a very high standard, very much above the standard takeaway fare provided by many Indian and Chinese establishments. The restaurant is small but cosy, the decor is simple and this adds to the family friendly atmosphere. Most importantly you know... More

Went to this restaurant after My daughters partner arranged a meal for 10 in celebration of her birthday. We had never heard of this eating house and had never seen it as its not on a Main Street. From outside, my husband and I were not impressed & expectations were low, BUT what a pleasant surprise. Although the decor is... More
