I've visited The Tamarind loads of times now, and each time the food has been delightful. Although it isn't a popular restaurant, the curries and other dishes they serve are absolutely amazing, at a good price. If you want a mild meal, I would recommend the Green Curry. If you're looking for something hotter, try the Kang Panang. No matter... More

A lovely selection of Thai food restaurant or take away,the restaurant decor could be made a big more authentic but it is a hotel breakfast area as well. The food is very good and reasonably priced with a good choice of traditional Thai food and a few other Asian dishes

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing meal together at this unassuming restaurant this evening. The service was quick and the quality of the food was so authentic! The menu is impressive - there were three set menus but we opted for choosing our own. It was so good we even brought a takeaway home for our son! Will definitely... More

It just so happened that we ate in the restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday and then had a take-away from here within a fortnight and both times thoroughly enjoyed our meals (as always!). We always have the chef's selection for starter and we always love it - one of these days I really must try something else :). It... More

This was a really lovely hidden gem. I visited with my partner and my in laws and every meal was spectacular. We usually go for a Chinese or Indian takeaway but decided on something a little different and we were not let down. The staff were polite and accommodating and the food really was something special. We all ordered something... More

I was surprised to hear that a Thai restaurant had opened in the Lyndale Hotel. My family had been previously and raved about it. I was not disappointed! I had Tom Kha soup to start and it was delicious. The spicy chicken main I had was outstanding. I could have eaten it again! Everyone present, including three children under 5,... More

Can't believe never knew this restaurant existed. Was a bit wary on entering, old fashioned hotel foyer and bar. Sat in restaurant decor very old fashioned with a little Thai flair. Waiter and bar lady very very polite. Food lovely my hubby likes spicy I like very mild and that was catered for and both very tasty. I had scallops... More

Came here for the first time as its only up the road and I'd never been before. Had king prawns in pastry to start which were lovely dipped in sweet chilli sauce. I then went for a Thai red curry with beef and asked the man if he could make it slightly hotter than normal which he said was no... More

The cosy dining room, complete with Oriental wood carvings and always fresh flowers, is low key and subtle, perfect for those nights out with friends and family whether you���re local to the area or enjoying a holiday in this historic area of North Wales. Chef Noo, renowned for the authenticity of his recipes, offers a wide ranging menu straight from the Bangkok streets. Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit Thailand will be immediately transported back to those balmy South East Asian evenings with one bite of the wonderful food here.
