“Great Thai tapas, great price and great service = great night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2010

We went here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! What a super place - the staff are attentive, the menu has huge variety - and all at a reasonable price. I can especially recommend the sticky ribs and Crabbies ginger beer really complements the flavours! The place was fit to burst - and the staff still accomodated us (and it was only a 20 min wait which with a drink flew by!). Excellent, excellent restaurant! Well Done!

“My new all time favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2010

After looking up somewhere to take my girlfriend for dinner tripadvisor was showing Koh as Bournemouth's number 1 and with that kind of accolade it had to be good. I placed a booking and from the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice.
A great place to eat, the food, staff, venue were spot on.
Needless to say the girlfriend was very impressed - massive brownie points for me!
Definately reccommend.

“Worth the taxi ride out of the town centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2010

My colleague and I were in Bournemouth for a conference, and struggled to find anywhere that looked very atmospheric or exciting on a Sunday night in the town centre. We saw the great reviews for Koh Thai on here, and so decided to venture out of the town centre (only £7 in taxi). We were greeted with a very warm welcome. The decor was lovely and the whole place felt really comfortable. The service was very friendly indeed, and the waitress was happy to give lots of advice on the menu. There was so many nice things on it, we struggled to make a decision! The food was great, we started by ordering 4 tapas between us with a view to ordering more, but we were totally full up! Would recommend without hesitation. Very good value.

“Like a pearl in an oyster shell.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2010

Location is always an issue with this place as parking is a bit of an issue and with the large panoramic windows, you tend to feel a bit like a fish in a bowl. HOWEVER, once sat down and realxed, you forget where you are and start to enjoy the ambience that Koh has to offer. We were squeezed in to an obviously busy restaurant, by that I mean we were not squeezed into a corner but they managed to find us a table we had to leave within an hour and ha half which was fine with us, we were after a quick meal.

I don't get the Tapas theme if I am honest, I thought also it was not the best value however the main meals we opted for were superb and the quality of the food lived up to the expectations we had of this place.

Staff were good although rather busy and drinks were priced fairly.

Booking is essential here and from reading through some reviews it tends to be a theme of disappointment for some but I felt they did try very hard to fit people in so maybe some reviews are a bit harsh in that field.

Not sure if it deserves number one status but certainly top ten and I would certainly go back there.
