I was very impressed with the food at Nay Thai, it seemed very fresh and the flavour was great! The service was average, the lady who served us was so lovely but the other staff were pretty slow and not as good as her with the customers. Although I really didn't mind due to the fact the bill was very decent for really lovely food and a good bottle of wine.

If you live in the area it is definitely one to try out.

Nay Thai is a fantastic restaurant and a welcome addition! - Surbiton has been crying out for a proper Thai restaurant for years!

It is a small and cosy restaurant with lovely staff. As there are only about 30 seats, make sure you book early, especially at weekends as it tends to get very full!

Since it opened recently, we have been about 5 times and sampled different dishes each time.

Every dish has been sensational, so I don't understand some of the previous reviews here. The chef is Thai and the owner is Thai, so they know what they are doing! We have travelled extensively in Thailand and this food is up there with the best.

Service is great and the food arrives quickly, even when they are busy. They also do take away food.

The beef salad to start was to die for, as was the sizzling beef main. I cannot wait to return and try every single thing on their menu. Fantastic food! Not cheap but worth every penny. It's about time Surbiton got a decent Thai!

Wow! At last somewhere to get good Thai food in Surbiton - something that's been missing for years...

I've been to Thailand a few times, but the acid test - take someone who grew up in Thailand and get them to tell you how authentic it is. It was my fourth visit already - but my guest was far from disappointed... She loved it!!

Som Tam - full of flavour, lip smackingly spicy.
Green Curry - rich, smooth with just the right amount of crunch and kick.
Pork Pad Ped - fresh, succulent pork, perfect with a totally authentic bag of sticky rice.
Pla Nung Manow - beautifully cooked sea bass - flavourful and spicy chilli sauce but didn't detract from the fish.
Goong Paow - meaty, juicy prawns grilled just right.

We had more (there were a few of us) but this should give you the picture.

Service is fun - this is a small, friendly local restaurant, not a fine dining, formal place - so yes it could have been slightly slicker - but you come here to eat well, chat with the extremely friendly staff and have a good time.

And a cheeky Sang Song at the end of dinner rounded off a great night.

Will definitely be going back many times....

We arrived without a booking and after a bit of humming and harring the waitress said they could accommodate us as long as we were out within 90 minutes. We had the mixed starter, steamed sea bass and sizzling mixed seafood with sticky rice. All the food was delicious and the service was spot on. Value for money wise we did feel a bit short changed with the amount of seafood in the sizzling dish.
