“Gorgeous food”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Although quite small it is decorated beautifully. They have authentica tables on the floor with cushions to sit on and ordinary tables for us old fogies! The food was visually stunning and very tasty. The service was excellent. Wish I lived in Brighton so that I could visit weekly.

“My favourite thai in Brighton”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

There seem to be a lot of differing views on Muang Thai, but I have been there more than a dozen times and have always found it to be excellent. There is a great range of starters and mains that for the most part have been delicious, and I find it compares favourably to the other thai places nearby. I think that the understaffing issue that other reviewers have mentioned is a fair point - it does sometimes take a while to get served, and yes this can also carry through into delivery times if you order a take away. That's the only thing I'd change. Otherwise it's a great choice for a delicious meal, and the staff are always charming and polite.

“Second time round not so good”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

I had been here last year and the food and service were much better then. We went on a Saturday. It took ages for our order to be taken and then arrive. In fact a table that arrived about thirty to forty mins after us was served first. Not everyone got exactly what they ordered because not only couldn't the waiter speak much English, he couldn't read Thai. He had to be supervised by a manager and even then got it wrong. I don't blame the waiter he was very sweet and did try. By the time we got our food we were too hungry too argue. It was ok but nothing to rave about. My rice was undercooked and my friends red Thai curry was actually green and so hot he couldn't eat most of it. Anyway, I won't be back next year.
