Hoves best kept secret

This place is a hidden gem, if you don't know it's there you could easily just walk pass thinking its an oriental supermarket, but the eating area is towards the back of the shop. Yes you do have to wait as there are few tables and is very popular, but I always think that's a good sign. The food... read more

The food here was great (I would advise trying a few things, although it is very filling!). As mentioned in many other reviews, service is slow and you do have to wait a while for a table and the food - you have been warned! Regardless of this, it's an experience and if you have the time it's a nice... More

had to wait a very very long time to be seated, no problem this place is popular and staff let you know straight away, been here before food was good so decided to wait. (seems the take-away takes priority over sit down diners) Ordered stir fried Tofu in Thai Basil with a fried egg, always been good before but this... More

I've been to Unithai for many years (since 2008) and I've never been deceived. There is a good choice of fresh Thai food. All is cooked on demand, so you wait around 15mn to get you dish, maybe 25mn if it's crowed. The place is cosy and that's lovely. I think I've tasted most of their dishes over the years... More

This place is great food spot on to what I had in Thailand but if you catch them at the wrong time peak hours there is a wait because it's so small but still a good thing to know they are busy and popular

This is a great no frills kind of place, basically a few tables and chairs at the back of a small oriental supermarket. But be warned...avoid ordering the prawn crackers! In most Thai restaurants prawn crackers are complimentary but these guys will shamelessly sting you for £2.95 despite the fact they sell packets of prawn crackers in their shop for... More

This place has been brilliant since we discovered it 7 years ago. The foods is absolutely delicious and I think we have tried almost everything on the menu. The Thai green curry is particularly good as is the Unithai rice dish It's great for takeaways and has a nice informal atmosphere if you eat in as you are just eating... More

Great, authentic Thai food with friendly service. All food is cooked to order, so be prepared to wait. If you want fast food, go elsewhere.
