Description: The food at Restaurant Villa Thai is cooked under the watchful eye of its Nepalese chef Bhandari Parshurami, who has studied the art of cooking Indian and Thai food in a culinary school in Delhi and worked in 4-star restaurants in Delhi. We have toned down the spiciness of Thai and Indian food to make it more suitable for the Nordic palate. Those who wish to experience the full heat of this cuisine can add some spices themselves.

“Some menu items are amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is my main restaurant when I am in Tallinn. My favourites are:
PANEER SAAG Cheese cooked with Spinach and Spices
PHAD THAI JAY Stir-fried Glass Noodles with Chicken and Shrimps
CHU CHEE PLA INN SEE Salmon in creamy Coconut Sauce
KULCHA NAAN White Bread filled with Indian Cheese and Potato
PANAENG KAEH Royal Thai Lamb in Peanut Sauce

I would not take anything with Chicken meat, as it tastes like it was pre-cooked.

“Nice Atmosphere, Not so nice food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I ordered a Phad Thai and I was extremely disappointed with it. Either what I had before wasn't Phad Thai (I would doubt so, since I had tried in at least 3 other countries), or they thought glass noodles were original. With much soy sauce it was edible, otherwise didn't taste like anything. I liked the fried ice cream. This restaurant didn't have light coke either. I don't know what is wrong with Estonian restaurants but in 4 days I could only get like coke in Mcdonald's...

“Excellent food just a little off the center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Villas Thai is a lovely restaurant in the beautiful Kadriorg neighbourhood only one kilometer from Tallinn center. Near KUMU, the Peter the Great palace and the football stadium. Crispy eggplant starter - new on the list they said - was delicious.

“balancing act between Indian and Thai flavours adapted to the nordic palate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We went on a Saturday and had the pleasure to enjoy some Indian dance act for the first couple of minutes. This put us into the mood for the evening. We tasted crispy eggplants, shrimps and spring rolls as a starter ( three different dishes that is). Our main courses were grilled pork (very typical Estonian smoked flavour), salmon (nice) and fried duck in a honey and pepper sauce. The latter was quite spicy and I liked it best. My opinion: The chef tries a balancing act between Indian and Thai flavours adapted to the nordic palate. The outcome is very good but not awe-inspiring. In any case, some of the typical character of either cuisine is lost regrettably. I would prefer a more distinct choice between authentic Indian or Thai.
With its average price level, its comprehensive menu, excellent service and appealing atmosphere this restaurant is worth visiting.
