Good Thai food in Ipswich

Enjoyed another very good Thai meal at Kwan-Thai. The quality of food is very good and the staff are always attentive and friendly.

We last visited Ipswich a year ago and we ate at The Kwan Thai restaurant. We went again last week. It was just as we remembered it with good service and tasty food. It was very busy but they found us a table & didn't rush us. We're looking forward to visiting again, although it will probably be next summer.... More

We were looking for a restaurant with a twist in Ipswich and this certainly has it. It was my mother's birthday and we all had a fabulous meal. The service was efficient and second to none. I can't rate this place enough, we will definably be back in the near future. Thank you for a great night.

How many Thai restaurants do you know that give you a sharing platter starter and weaping tiger as part of your mains from about £20 a head? I couldn't believe it when I saw this menu. Feels a real family affair with the waitresses being the front of house lady and the Thai Chef owners' daughter. She was so lovely... More

I have ate at many Thai restaurants around the world and I would rate this as average and nothing more. The restaurant itself is fine but the food is average Thai takeaway grade. Sorry Kwan Thai but, I certainly do not think I am being harsh as my guests and I all agreed on this. Disappointing.

Set menu was wonderfully balanced with a complementary group of very different dishes that went well together. Prompt courteous service. tiny clash of waitresses split a few drops of wine in my lap, wine discounted 50% very generous. Delicious! lovely evening.

The staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive. The meal was lovely, beef and chicken satay were lovely. The red curry chicken and sweet and sour pork were delicious. The servings were generous. Excellent menu.

A birthday treat meal on a Saturday night. We chose one of the set menus as we couldn't choose from the large menu. Food was well balanced,aromatic and flavoursome. Cooked fresh and authentically, arrived quickly. Lovely decor inside and friendly staff. Well worth a visit!
