Worst food eaten in a long time. So much wrong ots hard to describe. We won't bother again. Like warm food to old looking salad ingredients. Fish cakes tiny, thin and rubbery. Thai green curry watery and veg out of a frozen mixed veg packet...I suspect.More

After being a regular customere for sometime I had a meal where the beef was inedible. When the waiter came and asked what was wrong as I had left it all. He merely took it away with no apology and even charg3ed us the full...price. Loyalty to regular customers means nothing here.More

This restaurant is located in Selby Town Centre, however it is down an alleyway and from the outside does not look appealing. It needs some external TLC. Once inside it transforms from dull and dingy to bright and cheery with a warm welcome from staff....They have a 2 course set lunch from a fairly extensive menu and with a wide selection of Thai themed cuisine. The food is hot, tasty and plentiful and once visited is the kind of establishment where you wish to visit again as soon as possible.More

Superb food, friendly and helpful staff and a wide choice of dishes. The best Massaman curry we've ever had!

Staying nearby and was looking for somewhere to eat. Noticed Thai Sunshine does a 'deal' on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so called to book. There is a car park right next door which is free for 2 hours. The food didn't disappoint. The lady who took...our food order check on the level of spice we wanted for the kids. Food was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. One of the nicest green curries I have had. The pad thai looked amazing but I didn't get a look in as my son finished his plate. If we were ever in the area again I'd definitely return.More

We have now become regulars at this excellent Thai restaurant. I had Chicken tempura wich was superb followed by equally good dishes. I would recommend this to anyone.

Wandered around Selby looking for somewhere half-decent eat and had just about given up, when we spotted this place. We weren't expecting a lot but were more than pleasantly surprised. The sevice was delightfully laid-back and the food was fantastic. We shared a main course...of flat noodles with vegetables and crushed peanuts, lightly crumbed squid with sweet chilli sauce and coconut soup with tiger prawns. Everything was top notch and it's by far the best Thai food I've eaten, outside of London (never having been to Thailand itself!) and all for just £20.00! I live in Scarborough, but would happily drive to Selby, just to eat here. Thank you so much.More

A hidden gem! The food was absolutely amazing and service was great too. A real authentic Thai place. Only thing I would change is that I usually like a tray which includes chilli, salt, sugar etc that would usually come with Thai food. But other...than that absolutely perfect will go again!More

Visited this Thai restaurant for my wife’s birthday as we love Thai food and have never been here before. We were in early as we had our 4 yr old with us, but although the restaurant was open. It seemed like they were still setting...up, so their attention seemed to be other things rather than customers, it was as if we were interrupting their setup routine. We ordered the sharing starter, some of it seemed to be pre made or bought in to me. The mains were far too creamy for me. The Thai red curry was chicken in cream, there were no spices or fragrance to it in my opinion, all I could taste was sickly cream, my wife’s noodle dish was average. Something I could knock up mid week. The portion sizes were huge, and there is no offerings for children I could see, so she ended up with some chips, which were just crinkle cut frozen chips, and bits from us. There was some sort of Thai panpipe music playing on the speaker above our table which was on constant repeat of the same song and became massively annoying after listening to it for an hour. The waiter/owner was ok, but didn’t seem to interact with us much and was dressed far too casual in my opinion. The food was served quickly and was piping hot and was ok, but nothing special. The bottled drinks are a fortune and served in old bitter style mismatched glasses. I didn’t leave felling like I had my money’s worth. Won’t be returning.More

We enjoyed our first visit to this spacious, clean restaurant with its Zen like atmosphere. Good social distancing and friendly helpful staff. To start my husband had the crispy chicken strips with chilli sauce. I enjoyed the divine fishcakes. For main I enjoyed the chicken...yellow curry. My husband had beef jungle curry, which was a little hot for his taste. We shared sticky rice. All in all really nice food, chilled atmosphere. We recommend.More

We visited this restaurant for the first time. The welcome was excellent. The Food was exceptional. We visited again only to find the food appeared to improve. The chicken starters were exceptional. The star for anyone though is the seabass irrespective of how it is...finished. Highly recommendedMore

We had a very enjoyable first visit here last week. I suffer from very severe tinnitus so had gone to check out the acoustics and noise levels in the restaurant prior to booking a table. The lady I spoke to couldn’t have been more helpful...in sorting out which table would suit me best and offering to adapt the music level should I find it too loud. The meal we had was some of the best Thai food ( green curry) we have had in the UK The service was first class, the surroundings both clean and tasteful. Thank you for a lovely birthday dinner.More
