We had the Pad Thai and Spicy Red Curry Chicken. Food was decent, but nothing amazing. Honestly, it was just a bit weak; no real spice or strong flavor. I was expecting more from what the reviews said. The staff was friendly and ready to serve and the dining atmosphere was nice. Shame the food wasn't any more tasty.

I have visited this restaurant many times in the past and I was really looking forward to a great Thai Curry. We were shown a table by a grumpy waiter. We ordered and quite quickly the food appeared in chipped china. There were bits and pieces missing on plates and serving bowls. I started on my curry and soon found... More

Went with my family based on a recommendation by one in the group. Eating the starters outside added to the experience, as did the cheeky waiter who ensure that, although we were a large group, we were able to sit together in the snack bar. Definitely not your conventional sit down restaurant, but a great place for a quick, cheap... More

Visited here totally at random, expecting standard food but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity. We opted for one of the set menus which was served in good time and had ample food for the number in our party. The food was very tasty and overall the service was good. It was quite late so the restaurant... More

The staff at the hotel we were staying with recommended the Bird Thai Restaurant to us when we asked for a good place to eat. It was within walking distance, relatively close to the train station. Though we were early (about 7:00), we waited in line for about 45 minutes to get in. The staff wasn't particularly friendly, but were... More

After waiting in a queue for a table I expected something really special. The food was of a reasonable standard but the service was dismal. We waited a long time for a menu, then again for our order to be taken, and yet again for our meal to arrive.

The food was very good, lots of choices in the menu. Be aware that portions are enormous, so try to share otherwise the waste of food is too much.We had to wait for a table about 20 minutes outside but it was worth it. Prices are reasonable.

The food was great, though service was lacking - we went for long periods of time without water or wine refills (not great when you're eating spicy food)! Fun, active location.
