The Prawns, oh the prawns ...

This little gem of a Thai restaurant is superb and you must try the Prawn Signature dish, Wonderful to say the least.

Everything from the atmosphere to the food excels above what you would wish for from a thai restaurant. The service is fast and precise, the decor is a treat to the eye and the food is incredibly flavoursome. You would be a straight up fool to miss out on this culinary experience.

I recently visited Thai1 for the first time and it's safe to say that this is the best Thai food I have ever eaten, the service was brilliant, and it's in a great location. No complaints, would 100% recommend!! :)

Overall brilliant experience. The quality of the food was out standing and arrived to our table swiftly. We were more than pleased with the food that we received and is probably the best Thai meal I have ever had. Service was fantastic with our polite and smiling waitress. Will surely be returning soon.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for our anniversary due to it's excellent reviews. We were not disappointed! Every dish we ordered was beautifully presented, tasty and was not 'run-of-the-mill' or just average like so many Thai restaurant's dishes are. The staff we're polite and attentive and made us feel welcome. I would recommend their pad thai with chicken,... More

Food and service was excellent. Great Staff, took an interest in us as a group. Listened to the fact that we liked Chilli Peppers and encouraged us to try different types, with their advice. Will eat there again.

Been back from Thailand for a week and thought it would be good to refresh our Thai food taste buds. I had the signature King prawns as a starter and they were to die for, my wife had spring rolls, she thought that these were not as god as in Thailand mains were a chicken with ginger for my wife...
