A good evening out with friends

We were a party of four and booking is essential as this is a very small restaurant. In fact the place is rather cramped so if you have a problem with people invading your space ,best avoid it. Mid week may be a better option. That said the food is excellent and the service good. We had the... read more

The menu is limited and expensive for what it is. The dishes are very similar and the curry is thin and watery. Don't have a takeaway, they just can't get the order right. The lady in charge is disorganised and rude, could do with some customer relations training. Go to the CHIP SHOP next door instead it is excellent!

The staff is very friendly; the food is delicious, but not cheap (reasonably priced) It is a small place, nicely decorated but the tables are too close together. So, in case you want some privacy book one of the tables next to the window.

My wife and I travel to Thailand every year for holidays. So many times we have tried 'Thai' food in restaurants in England only to find that the food is, in fact, just another variation of Chinese. After a few recommendations we decided to give Tong Thai a try. What a pleasant surprise to have good Thai food served by... More

I have been many times and also used it for takeaways. This is without doubt the best oriental restaurant I've ever been to! The food is amazing, the staff are lovely. Absolutely superb!

We visited this restaurant last Saturday, the first time we had ever been there, It will not be the last one. The food is excellent as is the service, The restaurant is not on the cheap side, but is well worth every penny you spend, We went as a family of 5 and the bill was around £112 without service...

This place never fails to deliver. It is not cheap, but you do get portions that are big on flavour and also very pleasing to both the palate and also the eye. My family generally use this as a special occasion restaurant and have always left extremely happy with the evening that we have just had. In a nutshell if... More

This place never fails to impress! The food is always spot on, the portions are generous, the staff are always friendly even when manically busy and I'd go there every single day if I could get away with it! Love love love their prawn Thai curry and coconut rice!

You must book for a Friday or Sat night to ensure you will get a table. When you arrive you see a shopping mall type set up and the first thought is ''Seriously?!'' but then you go in, and the decor and atmosphere is wonderful. But the food is EXCELLENT. LOVE this restaurant....the service is superb. You will be thrilled... More
