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

Lovely food, worst service ever. Staff had limited knowledge of English, not even friendly Thai people. After waiting an 1 1/4 asked why we were waiting so long and was told we were in a queue. Drinks order wrong twice. Asked for a discount off the bill, staff didn't understand. They did when I told them they were only getting... More

Have been here a few times for lunch & always been seated & served very quickly. Food is lovely, very tasty. You can also ask for variations to the dishes & they will add or take away whatever you like or don't like , they will make it how hot or spicy you want. Never had a bad dish

Our household have moved into Selsdon in September and discovered Thai Express almost immediately. Having used the restaurant on several occasions we have found that each visit has been as consistent as the last. The flavours and authenticity of the dishes have lead us back through the doors again and again. Using it mainly as a take away, each time... More

The dining area was clean, but we found the flavors on the sweet side and the portions were smaller than other Thai restaurants we'd been to. Also, I'm not sure if it was jetlag or the food, but our stomachs were upset for a day or so afterwards.

A single bus ride (T33/64) from East Croydon Station. Authentic taste of THailand. Warm and friendly service. The only thing is that the "prawns" are really just shrimps:) Having said that, though, we gobbled up dinner with gusto! Delightful!

Perfect in every way- you have to try this Four of us two adults two children they served us with care and consideration. Children loved it full as an egg. We loved the food the staff the cook loved it must come again when in the area. Nothing. Like this where I live.
