Excellent food, lovely staff – love this place. I've been going here pretty much every week for a year now and haven't been disappointed once (no idea what some of the other reviewers are on about)! Oh, and good coffee too.

I've eaten in the restaurant a few time now and had takeaway a couple of times. I can honestly say this is the best Thai food in Brighton . Having travelled round Thailand a few years ago, the food here is as authentic as you can get. The flavours are perfect and the spice in the spicy dishes is set... More

Overpriced and underflavoured. Probably the worst Thai meal I have ever had. I have done a cookery course in Bangkok and know what should be in a green curry, maybe should give this place a lesson!

We spent £50 on some dishes, delivered, for two adults and two kids. Most of the food was ok but the sticky rice (normally lovely in a restaurant setting when freshly cooked), had become a horrible congealed lump. Our mistake, with 'buyer beware' and all that, but the price paid was a far too much for some ok food, delivered... More

Never been to Thailand, so can't comment on authenticity. I haven't been to the place, so can't comment on the ambiance. But have had two takeaway meals from them, both fab. It's so refreshing to look at the food when you unpack it and don't have to see Brakes Brothers prawn toasts or salt-and-pepper squid courtesy of the local cash-and-carry.... More

We love thai food and it can often be disappointing outside of Thailand, but this was amazing. Quick delivery as well. Dry red curry was immense.

Chicken was rubbery. Pad Thai had whole peanuts in rather than crushed as advertised. The food gave us both a bad after taste. There's better Thai takeaways around the city

I Love Thai is a takeaway with a small restaurant. The food, served out of a tiny kitchen, is delicious and piping hot, perfect for a cold winter's day. Lunch, including rice, costs £5.95, or £7.95 for a starter and a main. You can also order larger dishes from the a la carte/evening menu at lunchtime. The staff were very... More

Delicious food, fresh ingredients and lovely staff. This place is always my choice for a takeaway. The staff are really friendly, and the food always tasty with a good potion.

This isn't your average greasy takeaway, it's restaurant standard food at restaurant prices - therefore as a takeaway, it's expensive but the quality of food you get is far better than your average thai. The last order we put in took an hour and a half to arrive but they did warn us before they ordered - I expect saturday... More
