We have been to this restaurant many times now, and have not had one dish that has not been excellent yet! The staff pride themselves on the friendly welcome, which continues from entering to departing in true Thai tradition.

Some of the best food I have ever eaten. Really busy Saturday Night, but no waiting and constantly asked for drink orders. Excellent service and amazing food. Would highly recommend.

What can you buy for five pounds? Not very much I hear you cry! But at the Favourite Thai at lunchtime you can get yourself a very tasty meal and a drink for a fiver. There are eight choices. Over the past couple of months I've tried seven of the eight from a Pad Thai to tagliatelle like noodles with... More
