“Got a voucher?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Recently ate at the birch and bottle 'Chang Noi' restruant with a living social voucher.

First impressions aren't the best as its basically an old fashioned pub with a restruant attached. However this did not bother us to much, so we proceeded to the table, where the fun and games began!

We were given a special living social menu, with roughly 8 starters and 8 mains to choose from. However as this was not stated in the t&c's we asked if we choose from the main menu, we were told no. I had to complain once again and after the waitress spoke to the manager we were aloud to choose from the extensive main menu.

The food was good. Duck pancakes and ribs to start, although small in portions they were tasty none the less. Mains of crispy beef and king prawn cashmir also good. Small portions again.

Overall we were impressed with the food, after the initial issues with the voucher. Sometimes wonder why places like this sign up for these deals, then try to save costs by compromising on quality. Glad we didn't pay full price!

Very misleading!

“Most disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The most important thing is the food - and it was mediocre. Small portions, and nothing that made us want to go back for more. My complaint however is more the setting. Traffic hurtling past the conservatory took away any chance to relax, but added to this two young children were allowed by staff (I believe one was their daughter and the other a friend who's parents were dining) to run round and around the bar area and in and out of the conservatory. The children were not asked to stop running until one or the other screamed and even then they were then ignored again to resume their running around until the next time they got over excited. We had left our children with a baby sitter for a break! We will not be going back to Chang Noi.

“outstanding value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We ate here for the first time last night and were delighted. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the choice on the menu was vast. Each dish had a full description to help you make the right choice from a very full and varied selection. We opted for the Royal selection with 4 surprise dishes, but were told that we could request 2 of our own choice. All four dishes and starters were wonderful, full of flavour and complemented each other wonderfully. It was amazing value for money, and I believe that there is an early bird menu too!! The vegetarian selection is huge which is always a bonus. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Chang Noi and even though it is 40 mins drive away we shall be going again soon - it is worth the drive for such lovely food.

The food is fantastic, the staff are great, the atmosphere is cosy and the value is out of this world. What more could you want?

“New to Thai food- delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

We went to the Chang Noi last week for our anniversary. Having not eaten Thai before we were a little bemused by the menu, so much choice! We decided to go for the Royal selection where the chef gives you 4 surprise dishes (or you can request something in particular). It was amazing, an excellent variety and all of the dishes were beautiful. So nice having a take away again tonight.
