We went for the set menu for four it had every type of meat which was nice . And the portions were more than enough. I loved their thai green curry and the shrimps in a hot spicy sauce. I also like the dish that looked like a beef steak. Every thing looked and tasted great. We were all impressed... More

I use this restaurant with my Fiancée maybe 1-2 times a month and for good reason. It's perfect for that casual meal when you just say "Let's not bother cooking" and want to eat out. I recently took some friends in, on the night before my wedding and they all enjoyed the food a great deal commenting on how each... More

Ate here with family on a visit to East Anglia, though we were not locals, so went on reviews. Having eaten Thai food in the past and having an excellent local Thai restaurant to compare this to, I have to say that this version of Thai cuisine was way below par. Opting for the vegetarian banquet for 3, barring the... More

So so. Fairly pricey. Food ok. Weeping tiger excellent, everything else slightly disappointed. Thai beer was nice, but won't rush back.... Even if work is paying again.

Food is excellent - either we were just lucky or some of the reviewers on here are deluded. Service was OK, and price is reasonable. Would have been a 5* rating but the interior does let it down a bit - very tired and dated. With a relatively modest facelift, this place would be the talk of the area.

Visited on Saturday 29th June. Good service. But we chose the set menu for 2. There was plenty to eat. Well cooked and very well presented, but the food to me resembled chinese. So a bit dissapointing. The decor is also very tired.staff really nice, but bad english .

5 people, ages 24 – 61, visited the Kwan Thai Restaurant in Ipswich, 7pm, 15th June 2013. The meal was very much appreciated by all. As my first complete Thai meal, I found it an enjoyable experience in a busy restaurant situated in a popular eating area of Ipswich. It was a little gloomy and the décor a trifle garish,... More

An extensive menu, and very attentive service with a smile. The food is good, but like so many far eastern restaurants, everything tastes the same. Wouldn't it be nice if there was authentic cuisine available?

Midweek set lunch for two; two courses from a special menu (not too restricted) and a Tsing Tao beer each. Very friendly staff, good service and good food. £30 all-up. We often lunch here, or at their Woodbridge restaurant, so much so that the waiter guessed Wendy's starter! (correctly!)

This place restored my faith in Thai food again! Make sure you book, as this is often busy at the weekends. Good service, good food. If there's a better Thai restaurant in Ipswich then I'd like to know about it.
