“Good honest Thai cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Have been coming here for years, and it remains a good Thai restaurant and always seems busy.
Best to make a reservation the day before to guarantee a table.

I cannot say much else other than the food, service and staff are at the highest level one would expect. Go there and you will not be disappointed.

“Excellent hosts, clean restaurant and lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Brilliant food with fresh ingredents and home made, lovely thai food including beautiful tasting currys and soup. Varied amount of drinks including thai beer, wines, etc and at a good price, only wish was there more of a selection, e.g., ciders, more range of beer, etc.

The female staff are very friendly and turnaround of food in getting your dishes from order to in front of you is good., Price of the dishes are fair and excellent hostss and good atmosphere throughout.

With the excellent service and food - probably the best in the area worth going back to and worth leaving a good tip for making you feel welcome.

Thank you for your review. I am glad that the quality of food and service was appreciated and I have passed your compliments onto the team. With regards to the range of alcoholic drinks on offer this is something we are currently looking at. We currently have one draught beer and two Thai bottled beers along with a bottled cider on offer. Along with storage space issues we also have to be wary of the shelf life of draught beers and ciders as we are only a relatively small establishment. If you wish to contact me via email offering your personal opinions on what drinks would be preferable that would be appreciated. We look forward to you visiting the restaurant again soon.

“EXCELLENT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Brilliant food, service and ambience. I will certainly eat there again! Enjoyed a 3 course dinner for £15 and a glass of very palatable wine for £3.20 - I would have willingly paid double.

“Best Thai for miles around - Totally unrivalled !!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

You wont go wrong with this place as its without doubt the best Thai for miles. What you get is top quality tasty Thai food cooked in a nice friendly venue.

Venue is not too big so each table retains a private cosy feel and you are never left wanting in the service department.

From the Owner down they are happy, smiling, attentive and you can tell that they want you to be happy as appose to just turn another table around. As such its a pleasure to hand over money at the end of the evening.

The food will (in my opinion) blow your mind..........especially if you order "blind" or let the staff choose for you.

Only negative to visiting is that Romsey can be hard to get a taxi from if you don't pre book your collection / return journey in advance but that's out of the hands of Suan Thai.

Other Thai / Indian eateries could learn a lot from this set up as its not all about rolling 1st custom, inexperienced cheap Thai staff, knocking out naff dishes and low end set buffets to gain big profit.

To summarise - "More satisfying than finding out your cranes going under deck !!!!!"
