“Could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We ate here on New Year's Eve and although the food was good we were let down by the service. Our order was confused with the order on the next table and the food came out in a slow and disordered fashion. We would go back to give them another chance to show they can both cook and get the service right.

“Bland Thai food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Returned after a two year absence but very disappointed. Starters ok but bland pad Thai ..maybe the poorest we've had. "Jungle" curry very poor & tasteless.. Absence of all the signature spices especially fish sauce! Vegetables just awful. Very poor Thai food

“New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

My partner and I went to Thailand Tom on New Year's Eve and found the food to be very good. The service was very slow but put it down to this particular night. The food was priced reasonably. We will be visiting again in the near future.

“Brilliant find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Friendly, warm welcoming upon arrival. Clean, large restaurant, we have been on a quieter night, because it's the company you are with, the staff leave you to have a nice evening, but are very attentive and helpful.

Menu is a little on the smaller side - but… It's brilliant! I think this is the first Thai restaurant I have been to with crispy duck - talk about Christmas come early!

Food is delicious - could of kept eating. Make sure you visit.

Back soon!

“Tantalising Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

As regular visitors to Hythe I'm surprised my partner and I have never visited as we are big fans of Thai food. In summary, we were impressed. Really good quality food which was on a par with some of the best food my partner and I have sampled in Thailand. Portion sizes are quite small so we shared 5 dishes amongst 4 of us with rice for 2 and a Pad Thai which was ideal. The Massaman curry with lamb was sublime. Service was excellent. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.
