I felt an imposition being in this restaurant. Not deterred by the drab exterior and the diversion from the past entrance to a door that leads to the flats above, I was received by a busy waitress commanding I wait there and then ignored me for 5 minutes. The locals know better and pushed past us, claiming a table of... More

We were really surprised at the inside of this restaurant as from the street and entering it looks different and not really inviting. However going in it was a nice surprise to see the tables and interior. Also the service was professional and really friendly. Also the food ( we had all 4 of us different choices) was of great...

From the minute you walk through the door the subtle aroma of incense and food pulls you in. Service was fast and extremely efficient... almost pre-empting your needs. Food was excellent. Look, it's not cheap but excellent value. I seldom recommend, but this place impressed. You have to try the sorbet!

Friends of ours recommended this place and although it's quite far from our home we decided to give it a try. Did not disappoint. The place is quite unassuming from outside but ok inside. Unfortunately there was an overpowering insense smell. I guess they are used and don't really smell it anymore but it interfered with the food it was... More

Nice location, yet the tables are a bit too big to quietly discuss together. The food is authentic and spicy, if you request so, the Pad Thai a bit disappointing but the traditional dessert (sticky rice with mango) was delicious. However, the prices for the starters, salads and desserts are too expensive for the small quantity you get, the prices... More

Authentic and delicious Thai food served here in a nice subdued atmosphere. Bit pricey but not overly.

Contrary the other reviews, I didn't thoroughly enjoy the dinner at le Thai. From a 12 Gault Millau point restaurant I would have expected much more. The ambiance was great. However, our waitress obviously hasn't been working for a long time in the service. She had troubles taking orders. Firstly, another waitress had to ask us again about the wine.... More

This restaurant was just across the road from our hotel and turned out to be one of the more expensive dining experiences of our holiday, but nevertheless it was worth it. We didn't book but the staff were welcoming, spoke good English and efficient. The Thai food was as good as we have had anywhere, stylishly presented in pleasant surroundings.
