Always good food and service. A real favorite as such a brilliant selection of food and such reasonable prices. The lunch time offer is amazing value, and they are happy to serve dishes from the evening menu at lunchtime too, so there is such a choice. The patio area is a real sun trap so its lovely in good weather,... More

My Husband and I had a lovely meal at The rising Sun Thai and Pan-Asian last night. The staff were extremely friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was lovely! I would recommend the prawn toast and satay Chicken starters! Thank you The Rising Sun Thai & Pan-Asian for a lovely meal!

Although we live some 60 miles away from this restaurant, we have walked past it numerous times as we visit Mudeford/Dorset pretty regularly. Nothing about the outside particularly struck us enough to venture in. Tonight was different. We booked a table for dinner based on a recommendation from a friend. We were absolutely gutted at the end of the evening.... More

I chose this venue to have lunch with a friend after hearing so many great compliments about the place. It certainly delivered, delicious Thai food, great service and such a lovely pub. All my expectations were met and more. Every member of staff that served us was a gem, plus really good value for money. I will definitely be returning... More

Delicious. Lovely friendly girls serving. Great choice of red Fleurie wine. Shared starters of Tempura veg and gyoza veg - just fantastic. Then the 3 of us had sweet and sour crispy chicken, Mr Poon's special fried noodles , and chicken Udon noodles. Perfect sized portions.

My wife and I eat in the Rising Sun fairly regularly because the food is consistently of a high standard and as I have said in a previous review among the best Thai/Pan Asian food I've eaten in the UK. Also, I've always considered the staff the most genuinely friendly and helpful of any restaurant in an area which has... More

They have extended and improved the outside seating area where you can enjoy either a meal or just relax with a drink in the sunshine. The food is still of good quality and cooked to order. They offer a good selection of Thai dishes. The lunchtime menu is reasonably priced so you don't need a special occasion to enjoy a... More
