Dined here last week with my family. We had dined here lots and always find the food great. Are favs are the guri puffs - yum. The servings are generous so much so we always end up taking it home. Food is tasty with a good variety.

We were recommended to go to Thai Talay, which is situated on the Hheathcote Estuary, and so we went in early to catch a bite to eat and catch up at the end of the day. . The first thing that I saw, was an advert for a manager, which to my mind was not a good look on the... More

This restaurant is quite a drive from where I live but for excellent Thai food, it's well worth the drive. The food is fresh, clean and delicious. Waits are never long. Awesome atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. Yum!

There were many things wrong with our experience at Thai Talay. We went there because sometimes you just want a meal NOW, and it happened to be close to where we had been for the afternoon. Its a case of first time equals last time. As others have said, the atmosphere is non existent... it was surprisingly noisy which we... More

First visit, although a takeaway, as had wanted to go here as had heard good reviews. We both had stir fry meals from thier lunch menu, which was very extensive and made it hard to choose! Both dishes came with plenty of rice and were tasty and filled us up. I would like to go again, hopefully to the restaurant... More

We have been regulars here for years and still love the place. Slightly convinced that the portion sizes have shrunk a little bit but still happy with the quality. Great staff, nice atmosphere and really good value for money. Take away option is great for lunch or lazy weekends.
