Beautiful

Often order takeaways from here and I am never displeased. It is more expensive than the usual kebab and curry but absolutely worth it for the true taste of Thailand. It takes me back to my travels.

we ate here in April. Chose the set menu and the food was fantastic. Excellent value for money. More food than we could eat. The staff very friendly even the chef came out to speak to us. Definitely would visit again if we were in the area.

They tell you on entrance no credit cards and when you go to walk out they suddenly can take credit cards. Foods was very mediocre and the service poor. Expensive for what you get and had much better Thai food elsewhere. Would not bother again.

We have visited So Thai on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The decor is wonderful, the restaurant is spotless, the staff are friendly and we absolutely love it. So Thai offer a lunch time special which is a bargain and the standard of food is just as high as at night. I have a number of food allergies/intolerances... More

I have had much better Thai food than that. It was OK but nothing special. The staff was pleasant but the food was rather average borderline mediocre. They also had a problem with their card machine so we had to pay cash. Would not specially recommend it.

My friend and I fancied a quick Thai meal before hitting the high spots of Leek. We ordered Tom yam, red curry and stir fried chicken. All excellent. Good service and well cooked food. Cheap to boot! Worth trying for an alternative to the Indian's.

I have visited the So Thai many times in the past for their excellent food but on this occasion was very disappointed to find that on all the previous visits my vegetarian selection from the menu had included fish/crustaceans in its sauces. This is now pointed out in the menu and you can request that this is left out but... More

You might think it's not relevant if you don't suffer from allergies. However, the effort they have put in detailing ingredients for every dish is a reflection of the attention they give to their food. Their food was excellent, their staff was pleasant, it was a very nice evening. Even the deserts, which are often quite generic across Thai restaurants... More

Absolutely amazing value for money, only ever go at a lunch time but we have never had a bad meal, service is lovely, very nice staff, prompt in every aspect. Keep up the good work we will keep coming back. Anyone visiting the area must try this restaurant.
