Had the chicken satay skewers for starters followed by the Duck Laab with jasmine rice. While everything was very tasty it was all a bit dry. Fine for the dry chicken as it came with a dip, but the Laab was hard going. Came to...More

Thank you for your kind words. We don't advertise take away as often we are just too busy to do. However, early on in the evening, or sometimes during the week, we are happy to do. Please don't hesitate to ask.

We had the fish cakes to start which were okay. The Pad Thai and Massaman curry were good. Three drinks and the bill came to £42. Not bad at all. Would recommend if you like Thai food. Service was fine.

Average Thai food, reasonable value but average quality. Had starter for 2 which was very expensive at over £14 when most of the plate was tempura vegetables- carrot etc. Sweet and sour chicken was ok but nothing special!More

Very small restaurant, great food, excellent service and good prices. Very attentive staff. Menu easy to follow and make the right choice. Would definitely go again if visited Scotland at some point.

Description
The only authentic Thai restaurant in Inverness. With all our cooking staff born and brought up in Thailand, an authentic Thai Dining experience is guaranteed. Our products are either sourced locally or 6,000 miles away in Thailand. Reservations are recommended at weekends. Thai Dining is a family owned business where customer care is the number one priority. Bookings and table allocations are normally organised by local businessman & co-owner Ken who has spent over 10 years in Thailand. His wife and business partner Tan & experienced chef Phensri head up the All Thai service and cooking teams. Please note we will be closed from 23 December to 25 January inclusive to allow staff to return to Thailand to visit family and friends.
