Quick, tasty, pleasant staff. We have been here many times and it is always of a high standard. Bringing own wine makes it relatively inexpensive.

We visited on a very wet and miserable weekday at lunchtime. It look as as though the restaurant is pretty popular and seems to have a steady stream of people coming through the door. Im a massive fan of Thai food. This was not the best I've had but it was still enjoyable and the man serving us was amusing.... More

After hearing great reviews of this place from some locals we thought we'd give it a try and we are so happy we did. We went for the lunch menu and weren't disappointed. Nice sized portions and not at all greasy. Would definitely return!

I arranged a take away meal for 4 from the Thai Cafe on the final night of our holiday in Stornoway. Staff were very nice. I ordered a wide range of dishes- chicken, beef, fish, veggie, noodles, rice etc. The portions were good and the food was reasonable without being spectacular. Decent value at £44. As a sit in the...

Visited here last week with friends, never disappointed; Beautiful meal - ate too much (as always) & would always recommend; Great choice on menu to suit all tastes; BYOB- which works perfectly- to suit the individual/groups - cuts down on costs too. Very busy when we visited, had reserved our table beforehand- which I would recommend to all. Has a... More

As mentioned by a previous poster, food served in this restaurant is OK but definitely not authentic Asian food (this has been toned down for foreigners or / and simplified to bring down business costs). Servings are however generous and prices rather low for this city. Another minus is that they do not serve alcohol because they are not licensed,... More

We went there with others from our tour group, the food was amazing. Prices great, good hearty portions and the taste.... Yummy. Noodles around £5+ mark. It is a bring your own alcohol kind of place, the co op is not far away. We tried the coconut milk chicken soup, peanut curry chicken and red curry duck. I cannot stress... More

Got a takeaway as we were staying in a caravan nearby. Service was very friendly, food was excellent and they happily made my husband a curry that was from the restaurant menu rather than the takeaway one. Was also very cheap but food was great quality and value!
