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

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

I discovered this fantastic place about a year ago though trip adviser and have been going there atleast once a week for dinner. As it's been flawless every time, with friendly service, lovely food, very authentic flavours, and great prices. I have been bringing my friends an family regularly and everyone just loves it. Fish cake for starters was stunning... More

Had a lovely time visiting although this was all down to the company! I was shocked by the staffs lack of allergy knowledge not even knowing let alone being able to advise on a gluten intolerance allergy. They were clueless. They didn't even give my child a menu when we sat down, no surprise when had no form of children's... More
