Salty

Food was quite authentic, except the curries were too salty which the waiter promise to pass on to Toi the chef after he asked about our meals. We went during lunch time, and there were one chef and one waiter serving around 4 tables.

We must have struck this restaurant on an off night as our experience wasn't as good as other reviewers. Firstly we had a waitress that had great difficulty with the English language, and we weren't confident she understood all our orders. We were given water but never offered the drinks menu. For the first time in my experience in a... More

To be honest I haven't eaten in, but we frequently get delivered. The staff are always really friendly and although food can take a while to deliver it's a sign of the quality! Always great tasting food and great quality for money

Good service given but can get very cramped and noisy during peak periods - Best to eat earlier in the day for a more quiet and relaxed lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed the Green Curry with either duck or chicken as well as the Pad Thai with a serving of Coconut Rice.

Had lunch here for the first time on a Saturday with the family. We had the Pad Thai, green curry, Thai sausage and Goong Ham Pa (think prawn spring rolls). The food was solid; not the best we've ever had, but very decent with nice flavours. For the price though, the servings weren't exactly the most value for money and,... More

I have been going to Thai Yim ever since they were near the station, and they have always been good, until last time I went. Sauces were watered down, noodles hard and burnt tasting, and flavour not there. i know they were super busy, but never again, you don't let your standards down because you're under the pump - you...

Thai Yim is one of my favourite local restaurants. I had their Pad Thai and Massaman curry. They were delicious.

Pretty average Thai food. Tried the red curry, pineapple fried rice and pad thai. The red curry and pad thai is quite nice. Don't really recommend the fried rice.
