We came here on Saturday at 19:00. The service was first class. The food is unbelievably tasty. I had the Thai red curry and it was brilliant 10/10. I also had the vegetable spring rolls and they were lovely too. The bill came to just...under £40 for two people which was good value for money. The portion sizes were good so we left the restaurant stuffed. We can’t wait to come back again soon.More

I've had the Kung Hala Daeng and a Pad Thai and they were both really lovely. It's a really nice, colourful, little place with lovely staff and a great selection of drinks and food. The prices are really decent and the portions are really generous....I think the flavours are very authentic too. I love spicy food, but none of the dishes I had were hot (they're not meant to be) so I've asked for chilli flakes which were delicious and very aromatic. I can't wait to find out what their spicy dishes are like! One unfortunate thing was that the squid I've ordered with my pad thai was like rubber... I couldn't really bite through it, but things like that just sometimes happen. The rest was absolutely spot on, prawns were juicy and lovely, the noodles were not overcooked to mush like most thai places serve, my prawn starter was to die for and so crispy! The sauce was absolutely delicious and the pad thai was soooo flavourful. Overall, love it and will come back! P.S. I kind of wish they listed which dishes on the menu don't have gluten, but that's just a personal opinion of someone with a lot of years in the industry. It seemed like the batter on crispy prawns was made out of cornstarch and I didn't really see anything but the egg noodles that could possibly be made out of wheat. Having dishes that are "gluten free by chance" is actually a really good thing that this place (I think) seems to have quite a few of and its something that could potentially bring a lot of new customers if it was listed on the menu as Aberdeen doesn't have a lot of GF friendly spots. Didn't bother me as someone who can have it, it's just a suggestion! :) I actually didn't go and eat there once because GF friend couldn't see any GF markings on the online menus but now it seems like they would be just fine with the amount of options I saw! Please, give it a go because it's just THE BEST :).More

So disappointed was our first experience at Madame Mews , waited an age for a juice was such a warm day & so thirsty , took drink order with food . Cafe wasn’t busy with 4/5 empty tables the hr&half we were in . Was...excited for our starters as I’d not eaten all day for this - they came - not freshly made but packet frozen deep fried both the pancake rolls & prawns also nothing like all the pics I’d seen on there page . Next came the main course of which I wish I’d taken a pic of , I got no main plate had to eat my chicken with a few small red chillis swimming in a tasteless sauce chicken was crunchy around the edges ? With my frozen chips in a separate dish . Partners dish was soggy tasteless noodles & chicken , he’s never a salt user he had to heavily us salt to give it a glimpse of taste as so bland . Wouldn’t recommend . It’s sad as I really was looking forward this Thai meal .More

Impressed by the standardised outfits worn by the staff. Good menu, and good to have thai beer on-tap. Food was served in a reasonable time and was of high quality. A good nine out of ten. Will go back when we are back in Aberdeen.

Hands down some of the best thai food outside of thailand. I have been working my way through the menu over the last couple of years and am yet to try something I didn't like. The Tom yum is particularly good, as is the paed...cha (i think?) And the BBq beef skewers, so much flavour. Great friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere, and the price is very reasonable. Can dine here for a good 20 less than competitors, and the food is better!More

This is the best Thai restaurant in Aberdeen. One of my friends recommended that we try it, so our expectations were high. We weren’t disappointed, if anything it exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing & service was perfect. It’s the 1st time that we...have been & won’t be the last. My wife had chicken skewers & beef massaman curry. I had tom yum soup & Thai red curry. Exquisite authentic food. Just wish I had known about it sooner.More

I've looked at Trip Advisor on my way home and noticed three reviews that simply don't correspond with reality. Deeply suspicious. As you can see from my profile I've only been moved to comment once, and that was for something abysmal. I've finally worked out...my password to comment again. I travel to Aberdeen a number of times a year for work. I happened across this place in its old location and frequented most times I was in the city. Following covid I haven't been back in Aberdeen until this week. I had no idea Madame Mews had moved and was delighted to stumble across the premises on a wander. I had lunch Tuesday and a late lunch Wednesday before getting my train home. This is a cafe and not an high class restaurant. Service is relaxed in a good way. Food is inexpensive, straight from kitchen to table, hearty, plentiful and delicious. I have had a range of dishes over the years which have varied between good and great. If I ever came to Aberdeen with family or friends I'd love to show them the gem I've discovered. Can particularly recommend the Som Tum Thai salad which was something Rick Stein was raving about on one of his programmes; with good reason. Keep up the good work, I'll be back on my return.More

My husband and I have been visiting Madame mews for years and has always been great. Today wasn’t the case, I ordered chicken pad Thai, it didn’t taste right at all and it was so oily I couldn’t eat it. No one came to ask...if our meal was ok, nor did anyone come near us so that I could even order something else. Unfortunately this experience has really put us off from coming back, which is such a shame since like I said, we’ve been going here for years.More

Not that I can think of, my husband is allergic to fish and was told there wasn't any options for him. Although they do have a dietary menu up on the wall which states otherwise.
