“Sometime Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Ordered food one evening. It was perfectly delicious and tasty. Some of the best spring rolls I've every tasted. However, went the next day for the all you can eat buffet. Was very disappointed with the range of food. And was not as tasty as the food I had the previous evening.

Once again we had another excellent meal in Kam Thai. Service is exceptional and food equally as good. Will continue to visit.

“This might be the best thai meal I have ever had..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

This restaurant was an amazing find. I don't go for much in the way of Thai or Chinese food but was 'in the mood' and generally prefer Thai so whilst we were staying in Whitby we gave it a go. What a lucky decision, The service here was excellent - it was not particularly busy so cannot say what it's like when full. It is in quite an old building but is nice and clean and 'new' inside. We had a mixed thai platter to start and followed this with green prawn curry and Massaman duck curry all absolutely fantastic. Food tasted clean and fresh - not greasy or heavy, really really good.
They even do an early evening discount which I thought we had missed but they let us have it anyway. Drinks were not particularly expensive either.
This place is an absolute must-visit it is very good value and produces very good food

“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place is fantastic! Amazing food and brilliant service.
We enjoyed a lovely starter for 2 of tempura battered seafood. Accompanied with 3 thai dips and crispy noodles it was possibly one of the best starters we have had! (although we had it here on our first visit!)
Followed by a steak in thai sauce for my partner and a chicken and king prawn stir fry for me with a portion of rice between us, it was more than enough to fill us up!!
All of this with a couple drinks each - under £50!
This place really is a gem, the staff are so friendly and the food truly is beautiful.
You must try it!!

“Excellent Thai restaurant, classy & friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We'd seen Kam Thai recommended and will do so ourselves now. A classy restaurant, tastefully decorated with good blend of Thai dark wood & plain walls & columns, plus a few good pictures. Plenty of room at the tables, quiet enough to talk but popular & lively enough to have a good atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the marriage proposal at the next table, which triggered spontaneous cheers from us and the 3 or 4 tables around us!
The service was attentive and prompt but not pushy: it started with the touch of hot hand towels almost as soon as we'd sat down. Veg spring rolls for a shared starter were hot, crisp and tasty and just that one shared starter for both of us was fine, plus the free prawn crackers which had arrived immediately. We followed this with duck & sticky rice, and a vegetarian pad thai (served beautifully in an upturned fine 'basket' of egg which we'd not seen before). Didn't have room or the need for a dessert though it was tempting as always - and the bill came with nice mint wafers. With Singha beers the bill was only around £35 which was excellent for the quality of the meal.
