“Excellent food”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

No complaints with my latest dining experience at Absolute Thai in Charlestown. Service was very efficient, our order was taken within 5 minutes and the food came out around another 5 minutes after that! The green curry was excellent. It appears as though the service here has improved with time.

“Fantastic Thai Food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

This was my second visit to the Absolute Thai Restaurant in Charlestown, and it was just as nice as the first. Genuine Thai food with fantastic food & good service. I have travelled to Thailand on a number of occasions and I've got to say that the food at this restaurant is just as good as you'll get in Bangkok or Chang Mai. I had the Duck Chili Basil, which was fantastic, with just the right hit of spice! We went on a Friday night and they had a soloist playing which just added to the atmosphere. The only disappointing thing was that they served my glass of red in a very small sherry type glass instead of a red wine glass, however other than that it was a very enjoyable evening. Highly Recommended.

“Delicious Thai food if you're not in a hurry!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

We came here for a group birthday party, and the atmosphere with chilled live music on a Saturday night was great. We did have to wait an hour for our food to arrive; however, once served, was the best Thai I've had in a good while. We really enjoyed our stir fri rice and pad Thai. Recommended if you don't mind waiting.

“Great local Thai restaurant, with real ambiance and quality, fresh ingredients!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Although we waited close to an hour to be served our entree and then our mains; I have to give credit to the staff at Absolutel Thai because my partner and I were dinning on the night before Mother's Day. The restaurant was absolutely full. The kitchen was buzzing and pumping out as many dishes as possible. What was a bonus was the amazing ambiance, with the restaurant having a live duo (vocals and guitar).
Great authentic Thai cuisine, quality, fresh ingredients!
