This is a refreshing place to go if you want to try new dishes and feel full by the end of the meal. The variation and choices are astounding and the quality is really high. Love it!

2nd visit and both times fantastic. Stand up sea bass is a must but everything we ordered was fabulous. They handled a friends nut allergy beautifully too. Definitely going back.

I have had a couple of lunches here which were okay, but in the evening the food is really not as good. It is a real step down from lunch time and there are not as many choices. I also got takeaway from here as it is handy for me, and apart from the fact that it is completely overpriced... More

I love love love this place and their food, their set menus for lunch are so cheap and leave you feeling very full. The tapas dishes are all very good, 1 gigglin squid and wealthy squid are just Devine. Highly recommend if you like Thai food.

I had a Thai green curry here with my family. Absolutely amazing I live 2 hours away and I'd definitely come back again for that. You can't visit tunbridge wells without going here. Good service and reasonably priced. You literally cannot ask for any better

The Tropical Jungle Curry was excellent, and certainly no shortage of spice. The portions were generous and there wasn't a bad dish ordered by anyone on the table. The staff were maybe a little too eager to take our order and clear used dishes, but they had been clear that they needed the table back for another booking later on... More

This restaurant is always bustling and busy, really pleasant smiling staff too. Thai food for me needs to have that wonderful fresh 'mouth watering' taste, zingy ginger, lemon grass, chilli and coriander. The food is consistently superb and it never ceases to amaze me that Kais Kitchen is rated more highly, it is just not a patch on this. Great... More
