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...

I have not been to the restaurant but we ordered a takeaway. Takeaway was good but more along the lines of chinese when it comes to level of grease. It tasted nice and flavours were Thai inspired but the actually food was not like actual Thai which tends to be fresh and healthy. Ok for a takeaway

Food was terrible. Got a takeaway, chicken was nearly as dark as red meat, beef rubbery. The whole thing as a total mess. All went in the bin. If you don't want to get food poisoning do avoid going here

Four of us visited Thai1 early in the evening. The service was outstanding from the time of being shown to our table to the end of the meal. The choice of food was extensive and we eventually made good choices. The prawn soup that I had as a starter was choc a bloc with prawns. My main meal of chicken... More

I have only used Thai1 for 'Takeouts' when I have always found the food to be excellent as well as the service. Best of all the food is ready when you arrive ie when you have been told it will be!

Situated in an old building, this restaurant has a very cosy feel to it. Ideal for couples or larger parties. The food was of excellent quality, I can highly recommend the Chicken Satay starter. Both myself and my dining companion have had some experience of Thai food and we agreed that this was authentic Thai cooking at its best. Combined... More
