Great, no frills food

We were early to arrive but the staff welcomed us. We did have to wait a bit to be given a menu but they were preparing for the evening. We chose the set menu and the mixed starters were delicious and the mains were really tasty. But my favourite was the amazing jasmine sticky rice-I've never had... read more

This was one of the first places we ate when we arrived on holiday and it was exceptionally good value. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was very good and food arrived quickly too. I would recommend this restaraunt.

Three of us had a great meal here. The restaurant was busy but the service was still excellent. The food tasted great and was very affordable. We expected to pay corkage for our BYO wine but it didn't show up on the bill. Had a great night

The lady cutting my hair recommended the Thai Cafe and told us to take a bottle. (The coop is at the bottom of the street) Everything about this place is good, friendly service and brilliant food. It tastes like home cooking really fresh and characterful. Far better than any other Thai food I have had down south. The pork and... More

The Thai restaurant is located about a minutes walk from my girlfriends house & since meeting her 6 years ago it has become our favourite place to go out for a meal in Stornoway! We are always looking for an excuse to go there, the food is amazing.

The Thai Cafe had a good variety of vegetarian offerings and a pleasing atmosphere. The Pad Thai was excellent as was the service. The menu was quite diverse and was a nice alternative to other restaurants in the area.

Stornoway is the last place you'd expect to find an authentic Thai restaurant. Small, cosy atmosphere with BYOB policy which is always a bonus. Big menu serving all the classics you'd expect at reasonable prices. Had the spring rolls which were lovely and the beef massaman curry also delicious. Will definitely be back.

This is a lovely place to eat. There is such a vast menu and all of it is good food. There is no bar, so you have to take your own alcohol but this isn't a bad thing although I would suggest taking your own bottle openers and so on as we got charged £4 for this! The food is... More
