Excellent food

Hi, we visited here while on our holiday. The restaurant doesn't sell alcohol, so we took our own.. From the outside the place doesn't look anything special but the food tastes amazing.. Worth the money

Always consistent, I've dined here on many occasions with large groups & small. Probably not the best place for an intimate romantic meal as large (noisyish) groups are the norm. Excellent Thai food. BYO

Good selections, including items for vegetarians. Location is central in Stornaway, a two block walk to the harbor parking. The Proprietor offered us seats and glasses of water while we waited for the take-out. Relatively small table area and we understand reservations may be needed during busy times. Enjoyed the food very much.

If you enjoy Thai food this place is great- the fish dishes are the best- spicy seafood soup has a real kick!

Unfortunately fully booked so we had to settle for take away diner. We ended up in the castle gardens over looking the harbour. Great views and yes we enjoyed our food. If you want Tofu just ask it was not listed on the menu.

Didn't get to meet the Thai chefs but the girls serving us were very bright and cheerful. The menu is extensive and all cooked freshly. Wasn't expecting such a good experience in somewhere as remote as Stornoway and so it was a really pleasant surprise. Restaurant is BYO but plenty of supermarkets etc to get alcohol. Would definitely go back... More

I ate the green thai chicken curry and sticky rice. The curry was beautiful and it reminded me of my time living in Thailand, very much a home cooked style as a pose to cuisine. The only thing I didn't like was the flavour of the prawn crackers which had not been cooked in fresh oil and tasted like oily... More

Food good well cooked with lovely flavours, very enjoyable meal. Staff could do with some more training, as they were all quite young and inexperienced waitresses so not very attentive, didn't make eye contact and rather shy. Gave the impression that they were not interested in your order and left you wondering if they had taken it down correctly. Would... More

Very good Thai meal, friendly service. Take your own alcohol, and yes, the fish tank is too small for the fish

This was a great night at the Thai, ok so we arrived and they were overbooked and we had to squeeze round a small table but it was Valentines and the staff were really great, even although they were short staffed. The food was the best I've eaten there and i had the Thai seafood curry, seafood is a tricky... More
