We eat here as often as we can, even though it's a 40 minute drive! We have tried other, more local Thai restaurants but none of them beat the Thai Lights for authentic food and great service. They have a good vegetarian selection; the green curry is the best I've ever had and the veg is always really fresh.Don't be put off if it seems quiet, give it a try.

Don't be put off if the restaurant is empty because the food is excellent.
I love Thai food and have been taught how to cook in Thailand by several different people. Blue Elephant was one of them.
All of the staff are Thai and they can cook the food exactly how you want it. I like mine spicy and I had Pad Kra Prouw Gai Ped Ped. If you don't want it spicy then just say so!
We were the only people in the restaurant and we had a fantastic time. The staff are so friendly.
We will go back when we are in the area again.

Great food; superb separate vegetarian section on the menu. Cosy and small; good service. Hot in the restaurant, but nowhere near as hot as the food! Anything above 1 chilli rating is almost uneatable.

If you're in the Halstead area make sure you try the Thai Light restaurant. We were there on a bank holiday Monday. At first we weren't too sure as the restaurant was quite empty, but we're so pleased we ventured in. Friendly staff who served us quickly and efficiently. And the flavours were amazing. The prices are good anyway, but they have a great deal on; starter, main + rice or noodles for £9.95. Bargain. Especially recommend the pad thai and the panang curry. We'll be back!

We have eaten at this restaurant several times before and we have always had a good meal with friendly and prompt service and last night was no exception. We took some close friends and had a splendid meal, the food was well cooked with attentive service. We can highly recommend this restaurant.
