Best Thai Food

Having visited the restaurant on a monthly basis and managed to tick the majority of mouth watering menu choices off the list, I would ask anyone with a love for good and authentic Thai food to find anywhere better! I would also like to comment on a previous review to note that in all my visits to... read more

We stayed at Alexandra house last year and were told this would be a fantastic place to eat in . It turned out to to be very different . We asked for hot water to drink and the waiter brought water from the top. The food was horrid and cold and took forever to arrive!! Very unfriendly too. Maybe they... More

The Check Inn serves the most amazing Thai food I have ever eaten. The menu is varied and contains lots of seafood and dishes you might not expect. It's fairly priced and the portion sizes are good. My husband and I both agree the food was truly delicious. Well spiced and unbelievably tasty. I will say this isn't the kind... More

My brother and I have been visiting this place for years at lunchtimes when we transfer our mum from Cardiff to Essex and vice versa. There is an extensive menu of delicious well cooked Thai food at reasonable prices so we always look forward to our next visit. The menu rates the heat of their dishes with one two or... More

The ladies toilet in restaurant area was disgusting. Sink filthy and plughole black. Window ledge dirty, open bin with no disposal facility for ladies sanitary items. Old battered bar table and stool served as make up and babychange area. Baby highchairs piled up in corner next to toilet bowl (parents would you want your child sitting in one of these)... More

A group of 8 of us all enjoyed a very tasty Thai meal. Non greasy, spicy but not over hot, all served with a smile. Not too salty and no evidence of the dreaded MSG!!

When I read the other reviews we were looking forward to going here while on a weekend stay in the area. Big mistake. If people say this is best Thai then they obviously haven't been to many. Service was ok, though slow to clear tables. We ordered a mix of starters and some soup as a second course. Soups arrived... More

Outstanding food which was a great surprise as I've never been to a Thai place inside a pub before, but it was great! The added bonus for me was that if you want desert (which I did) you have a choice of pub deserts and not Thai/Eastern deserts which I've never really enjoyed. This is our new favourite Thai place...
