We were at a photo shoot yesterday and the photographer recommend Unithai. We are so grateful. We had walked past the the Thai supermarket many time but had not realised there was a restaurant at the back. To be clear this is not a polished environment; so no candlelight or table cloths. But the tastes were so clean and served... More

This little gem is a great little find in Hove, situated at the back of an oriental supermarket. There are a number of tables and kitchen with all I can describe as the MOST AMAZING Thai food ever. It really was like being back in Thailand. You'll be eating your meal and observing people shopping in the store, so unique... More

Tucked away at the back of this Thai supermarket are a few tables and chairs. Walk in and try anything. It's all delicious. We had the duck curry which came with rice and was under £8. Fabulous food in a no frills environment. Loved it

After going in here shopping for 5 years and not eating in there, when a friend suggested it as our pre-Christmas meet up. Got to say delicious!!! As there's 12 main meals we decided to go back every month in 2017 and try them all. Such friendly staff that keep coming with jugs of water

The red curry was as good as you get in Thailand, left this place so happy. Cheap, amazing flavour, fast, and the staff were so friendly, you can even take curry paste home with you!!!'

I live in Surrey and we have some excellent Thai restaurants but Unithai is one of the highlights of visiting my family in Hove (the other being the family itself, obviously). The food is always hot, cooked to order and very well priced. My only issue is what to order and I do usually get two or three dishes to... More

Went in with my family for some Thai food - was very excited as we thought we would get the real thing. Sadly it was anything but. All the soups were extremely sweet and gloopy. I couldnt actually believe that people were eating them. We complained about one that was particularly bad and they offered to replace it but the... More

The best Thai I've ever been to. Food is delicious. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Lovely clean place. Although small, this just adds to its charm. Weekends can expect to queue for a table. But you know it's gonna be so worth the wait! While waiting you can browse around the supermarket, hard to leave empty handed though!

The back of a Thai supermarket, small tables and a bit in your face. Two Thai green chicken curries with rice, and two bottles of sparkling water for under £20 great value. Not a place to hang around or impress for anything than its simplicity.

nicely spiced - although not as much as in Thailand - be sure to check all the walls for the list of the various dishes - absolutely delicious and worth waiting for a seat
