Nice and a bit quirky

Visited here on a recent trip to reading with friends in its guise as the Bali lounge. Called in without a booking and it was packed. We were told we could have a table in about 30 minutes and were directed to the bar area. We had a nice drink here with the owner who kept us updated on the... read more

Visited with a group of 8 , decided to go for the £10 for 2 courses menu not expecting much. We were all very pleasantly surprised. Food was very very tasty and good portions. Great friendly service and a very nice looking restaurant. Highly recommend.

We have used the Warwick Arms on a few occasion in the past and always had great food & service.Booked for a family meal (2 adults & 2 teenagers)on Saturday and was very disappointed.The first clue should have been the table next to us which was vacated about 10 minutes after we arrived and all the dirty plates etc were...

The Warwick was renowned for excellent Thai cuisine; I've spent a small fortune here over the years gladly! However in its new incarnation / ownership (?) it has completely disappointed on my first and last visit in early March 2015. The new concept for me fails utterly, with a menu with Malaysian, some Thai and pug grub classics; Fish and... More

We had waited quite a while to visit and were very impressed when we arrived by the welcome and surroundings! The food was delicious however our only negative was the delay in food arriving.......if there's a group dining this may not be an issue. However all in all a nice evening and we left with tummies full of nice food.

The Warwick Arms has been one of my favorite restaurants in Reading and I've been there several times and always had delicious food and good service. As previous reviews have noted, it's undergone a refresh and rebranding to be the 'Bali Lounge'. I returned recently for dinner with friends, and the atmosphere remains great and the food also. The new... More

I have been eating here regularly since it changed from a trad boozer some years ago. There have been some ups and downs since then but, following the recent refurb and name change, the Thai food continues to be tasty and well presented. It seems authentic andis very good value, especially on a Monday! Beers are a bit pricey -... More

The service was very good and the atmosphere in the restaurant is incredibly chilled out. We had to wait a little while for the food but it was well worth the wait. And we were offered complementary drinks while we waited. I can't recommend the Beef Sendang enough. Well worth a return visit ☺
