“Thank you for a great Anniversary Meal! Great Hosts, Great Food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

From the moment we stepped into Favourite Thai we were made to feel like regulars (even though our first visit).

We opted for set meal C and as previous reviews raved about the Tamarind Duck ordered that too. Although it turned out set meal C was for a minimum of 4, the owner kindly said he would do a smaller portion as it was just for me and the mrs (small surcharge).

The food was authentic and cooked brilliantly. The duck was the star dish and was bloody lovely!!!

Trust the reviews on here, I can see why they are number 1. Thank you to the owner for what was a lovely meal to celebrate our anniversary, the small gifts were a lovely touch!!! (Thank you). Even though its a 40 min drive, we'll be back again to see you soon! :)

“Wow”

We did lunch, it was cheap, tasty and the service was great. We will come back for a proper meal in the evening to eat off their full menu.

“A superb Thai meal - customer service is not dead!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This restaurant more than deserves all the excellent comments it has had. We adore Thai food, and this has to be one of our best ever Thai dining experiences. The manager (owner?) could not do enough for us and made us feel like royalty - but in a very warm and relaxed way; he has a lovely manner, and made us chortle each time he talked to us. The staff were attentive without being "in your face" and the atmosphere relaxed and inviting. The food and wine were delicious - totally first rate - and we cannot wait to go back again! Heartily recommended.
