We have eaten at the Laithai on a regular basis since they opened. We have never had a bad experience - we always get a warm welcome and the food has always been excellent. They do a lunch time menu that is really good value - 2 courses for £5.95 - £6.65, depending on whether you choose meat or fish.... More

Went here recently with a party of girlfriends. The food was really tasty; I had a delicious jungle curry, very spicy, and tasted someone's green curry. Both very good. And very hot when served. we had a mixed starter which was also tasty. However, the service, we thought, was not that great. We had to wait ages for our drinks... More

Dined mid-week with a friend and were one of three tables booked, which made for a nice quiet evening out. Service was very good, as was the food.

Was ok. A typical town centre Thai, offering all the usual suspects. Service was ok, nothing massively memorable. Prices were there or thereabouts - we didn't come away feeling as though we had been skinned alive. Comfortable, clean, would probably go back

I've been going to Lan Thai for a few years and have always really enjoyed the food. Tonight I had a Thai sausage for starter which was a really tasty and unusual treat. The green curry there is the best I've ever had. Delicious. Service as always was polite and welcoming. Overall, good food and reasonable value for money.

We'd heard lots of great reviews about this place but were very disappointed. Service was poor, food was quite bland and luke warm. Must prefer Siam for a tasty Thai meal.

I have been here a few times and had mixed reviews. I'm glad I went back because the food was amazing and great friendly service. Good value for money and the ribs were the best I've had!

This is the first time have visited this establishment and it will be the last. The booking process was fine and we were greeted by the very friendly staff. The rest of the evening was fairly forgettable. My starter was supposed to come with a crispy garlic and shallot topping but this was forgotten. After rectifying this issue I noticed... More

This is one of the best thai restaurants i have been too. A regular customer for the last five year's food and service is excellent every time.
