Initial reservations, main course delight

Living in Asia I'm no stranger to Thai food, both in Thailand and outside. Came here for a change of scene with my 89 year old mother. Menu includedChinese dishes which worried me. Starters were mediocre at best, I was half expecting to see ketchup on the pad Thai. How very very wrong I was... read more

I stay away on business in Selsdon, Croydon often. I always head for this Thai restaurant. I've never been disappointed with the service & always enjoy the food. Mostly I opt for the takeaway but I have eaten in the restaurant too. OK: It's not a snappy, plastic, corporate creation that we often experience & learn to expect & judge... More

After a disastrous meal there about 8 months ago with the worst service and longest wait for a meal ever, it was with some in trepidation that we decided to give Thai Express another go tonight. So glad we did, it was like being in a different restaurant. Friendly, efficient and helpful staff. Food arrived quickly and when it did,... More

Staying at a local hotel, I popped in for take out. Ordered the spicy basil chicken with steamed rice. It was very mediocre, and overpriced. Surprised at what they charged for the side of rice (no rice included with meal). Would not recommend.

This is a friendly local restaurant based in the high street. Service is a little slow but food is lovely. Would eat here again.

We have eaten here with friends on many occasions. Arriving just after noon we have enjoyed really tasty food. Even the rice and sauces are exceptional and there is a good choice on the menu. A relaxed meal, main course and Tiger beer for under £10 and within an hour is a real treat. I notice that others have reported... More

Simple decor with light chairs and table, a few wooden Thai carved pictures but the food blew the experience right up there amongst the best. We were waited on with 5 star service for the 2 and a half hours we were there. It WAS the school holidays, mid week and we went in really early, a good hour and... More

It's a shame to read negative comments about this restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff very attentive. However, when I have eaten there, three or four times, I have found it lacking in atmosphere. I think that is because it is often empty. The Thai Express now do home delivery take aways. Fantastic. Food arrives in half an... More
