My wife and I decided to try this place after walking past it a few times, and noticing that it was always busy. It was a great decision. The food was genuinely excellent. We had a prawn Penang curry and a vegetarian pad thai. The service was good and the prices reasonable. A winner.

I have eaten takeaway from Thai Carnation on two occasions now as part of a work function. On both occasions the food has been fantastic. My last meal was the panang curry with vegetables and tofu. The flavours were amazing and while the tofu wasn't the best, the vegetables were fresh. I'm looking forward to attending the restaurant for a... More

We have been here a number times, more often on a lunchtime. The food is consistently good but it just really annoys me that you have to specifically ask for the lunch menu - at lunchtime!!? It is clearly promoted on the door but when you ask for it, the head waiter gets into a strop and has to retrieve... More

Food is ok, price a bit much, quantity is not up to local standards, I could pick a better place for Thai.

We went as a business group, and this worked really well, as we were able to carry on a conversation easily (I hate it when you have to shout and only hear half the story because the musics too loud or the hard surfaces creat a din). Food was excellent, flavours great, the chicken and pumpkin curry was particularly good.... More

We ate at the restaurant twice. The first time must have been good enough to warrant a second visit. And it sure was and BETTER! The chef was a little middle aged lady and she's there on Thursday and Sunday.
