Absolutely delicious, don't tell your friends!

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... read 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.

So on first inspection this is a supermarket with some tables at the back. What you get is some of the best Thai food I have ever had. There was no queue when I visited but apparently that's not the norm so be prepared!

Excellent Thai food served at the back of a Thai supermarket. Great food, bit basic as a restaurant - wander in, grab a couple of seats, order, wait a bit, wait a bit more, eat great food, wander off again. More cafe/canteen than formal but did I mention the great food?

This place isn't much to look at but does the most fabulous Thai food, it is so authentic and delicious! Truly a hidden gem, the kitchen is so tiny I really don't know how they do it! I feel like an idiot for having lived in Brighton for 7 years and only just finding it! DOH!

If you are looking for authentic thai food, well this is the place! The "restaurant" is at the back of the shop, very poor and basic decorated, simple menu choices, but don't judge the place if you haven't first eaten...perhaps the best thai i have ever had in west/east sussex... a real gem!

Please do not go to UniThai! No other Thai food will ever taste good. You will wander disappointed and sad. Every time someone says 'Thai food?' you will have a vision of UniThai, your mouth will water and then you will wake up and realise you are stuck with a second rate alternative. Genuine warning! Once you have eaten here,... More
