Good food, good winter special

This is our third visit to this restaurant. The previous 2 visits were on a trip 3 years ago. While this restaurant says "Under New Management," it still appeared to be the same place. We were even served by the same waiter who served us on our previous trip. The food was good. We ordered two... read more

Dined here with husband and two young children the service was efficient and friendly. We took advantage of the specials on offer although the selection of dishes on this menu was limited. The food was cooked well and delivered hot and quickly to the table but was not as good as other thai I have had it lacked some authenticity... More

Reasonable winter specials! It was good but didn't get the taste of Thai with the specials. Good and unique choice of desserts. The deep fried banana, flamed was delicious...

Whilst my meal was ok, my friend specifically requested that her lamb dish was to be served 'mild to medium with no peppercorns'. Whilst the latter was adhered to, the dish was served as a hot - so hot... More

Thai food is some of the tastiest in the world, but not at Amazing Thai. We were served boring, low quality food that skimped... More
