We have been using this resturant for about four years, the food has always been to a very high standard and the service has always been friendly. We consider one of the best thai restaurants we know anywhere.

We been to Black Cat before around 5 years ago and were interested to visit it again. The standard of the food hasn't changed and is still, in my view, excellent. I was, though, rather put off by the waiter who whilst friendly enough managed to cross that fine line between friendly conversation and patronising/inappropriate comments more than a couple... More

Great food,but on reflection our choice of a set meal for 6 adults was inadequate as regards to being enough for 6 hungry souls had to order extra dishes to satisfy our appetites, tables were on the small side so when ordering a set meal there was not enough space for the beautiful selection of food that was provided...to sum...

Had a lovely green chicken curry made to our taste, mild. Good flavour and plenty, nicely presented. Staff very friendly ,even when my husband knocked his drink over. My husband had the baked Alaska which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the Strawberry mousse gateaux which was good. Finished with a pot of a Jasmine tea which we had not... More

The Black Cat had dairy free options so they can cater for vegans. The spring rolls starter and stir fried veg main were both tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again when back in Shanklin.

Easily the best Thai meal I have had Ina long time. They provide a good choice of dishes and the food is truly delicious. If you like a Thai curry they will even cook it for you own pallet, if you like it hot you can have it hot, if you like it mild you can have it that way.... More

A great meal with all the Thai trimmings; we like hot curries and Black Cat has some real firepower!!! Great service and reasonable pricing... definitely recommended to anyone keen on Asian cuisine. Cooked by authentic Thai chef, and presented with unfussy but attentive serving staff. Watch out for the heat of the specials; only the very bold need apply!
