“Attentive staff, good food, new vegetarian options”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We went here on the spur of the moment after looking for Thai choices in Bournemouth. Our table was early at 6.45pm which made all the difference, we had a works function behind us for 10 to 12 people behind us for 7.00pm which left maybe another 12 covers in the restaurant, so it looked like it was going to be a busy evening. Our starters were bigger than anticipated (sesame toast & tofu) which was great and the mains were both variations on Thai curries which were fresh and authentic. Service efficient (as you would expect) and reasonable value, alcohol free beer was nice option for the designated driver, good house wine. Good Thai experience.

“Used to be really good when it was Tuk Tuk Thai”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Now the food is only average, a shame. The decor is modern but looks unfinished in places.

“Good little place but expensive for the setting”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We have found this restaurant consistenly good and they offer a nice lunch menu which is great value, the standard menu is not so great value and not much cheaper than Tiien on the west cliff which has a far nicer setting. Can't really fault the food and the Tilapia in red curry is delicious, everything is nicely presented and staff seem friendly enough but never had to complain! Missing the finesse for us to visit more frequently but go because it's local and good enough.
