We've just come back from eating at Thailand Number One, well worth a visit, recommend it to anyone, we'd go back again in the blink of an eye. We hadn't planned on going there went their by pure chance. We were out visiting the City of Lincoln, spotted it so age it a whirl, I'd say it is possibly the... More

Horrendously long waits between courses. Kind of understandable due to busyness of holiday weekend. However, when local mulleted celebrity walks in and gets served more quickly and more pleasantly, that is very annoying. Food good but less favouritism required. Very provincial.

Very impressed with the presentation of the food with beautifully sculptured carrot flowers. A good selection of Thai food and with the waitresses in costume almost felt like Thailand. Battered veg and prawns a good choice for starters. A little disappointed with the fish main which was billed as crispy but actually was served in a sweet chilli sauce so... More

I have been to Thailand No 1 many times over a number of years and it has never failed to be excellent. The food is freshly made, hot and hugely flavoursome, as well as being nicely presented. It's best to book as they get really busy. There is a good range of options including for vegetarians (I am bemused by... More

We combed the streets of Lincoln looking for tasty good value for dinner, and settled on Number One Thai. It was a good decision! We have eaten Thai food many times in lots of places, so we think we are able to judge standards fairly well. The Number One Thai was, well, at least close to number one! We chose... More

This restaurant was very busy on a Wednesday, but we were found a table in a pleasant conservatory extension overlooking a scrap of garden, nicer than the hot centre on a warm evening. Staff were pleasant and efficient, the wine was good. Unfortunately, the food failed to please. It was bog-standard Thai, some of it straight from the factory production-line... More

Visited with my family and will definitely go again. They have a special menu for lunches which allows you to have 3 courses for a reasonable price. The food is tasty and just what you expect from a Thai restaurant. The peanut sauce is too die for. They have friendly and attentive staff.
