Amazing meal!

Very nice ambience and attentive staff. Excellent Laab salad for a starter, then both had massaman curries for the main with noodles and rice. Just gorgeous, so tasty! Sticky coconut rice with mango and ice cream to complete a superb meal out and at a reasonable price too.

A very nice small restaurant with attractive decor and attentive staff. Went with family member who had extensive experience of Thailand who was equally impressed with the standard of food and presentation.

I seem to be going against the majority of 5 star ratings. We have eaten here before and it has been excellent, but last night we were shown to a table at the back, which was so close to the one next to it, we had to keep moving to let people and waiting staff in or out. The pot... More

Thank you for the honest feedback on your experience at Thai Lagoon. We’re sorry to hear that you felt the restaurant was somewhat crowded. It’s true that, due to the high demand for tables, the restaurant does tend to get busy on Friday and Saturday evenings but we would recommend a weekday visit for a more tranquil atmosphere.

We came here a few years back and had a very memorable dinner, which made the choice to return an easy one even with the 45 minute drive. Service is warm, welcoming and efficient, whilst the menu provides all the classics. Tom yum goong was fragrant and spicy with well prepared and fresh prawns. Chicken satay and pad siew also...

Tai Lagoon has become one of our favourite restaurants. We live in another county but are happy to travel the distance to eat here. The service is great and the food is amazing. I had the chicken Pad Tai which was the best I have ever had and my partner had Prawn Pad Tai. Definitely worth giving this restaurant a... More
