Description: Koh Thai Southsea in based just outside of Portsmouth’s historic port area. This romantic and opulent, Grade II listed former bank boasts a mezzanine floor overlooking the buzzing restaurant and bar. The grand neo-classical facade transports you from the everyday to our exotic island, complete with a tranquil secret garden. Amazing for cocktails, parties and great food.

Ended our visit to Portsmouth by trying this place last Saturday. It was great and the sampler idea was incredible. We sat upstairs and the waitress helped us make the right decisions. All the staff were professional but she made a good evening even better. We will definitely go again next time we are in uk

Food and atmosphere was lovely, i had a lamb curry and the meat melted in your mouth, my friend had the thai green curry which she said was also really nice. We shared starters of satay chicken and spring rolls which were yum! We both had cocktails which were gorgeous!

Had some nice items on the menu, Pad Thai and Coconut soup were particularly tasty, the Jungle curry was very hot. Despite ordering several items for tapas, a couple were the larger main option when we assumed it would be the smaller tapas sized portion. Also the cocktail offers said "double up" for a special price, wasn't clear it had to two of the same. So worth checking some things when ordering.

Some tasty items on the menu, nice location but now I've been there and given it a go, will be a while before a return visit.

I can not fault the food it was amazing. I would recommend on that alone. We chose the taster menu and were not disappointed. There was more than enough food for all 4 of us and my husband is a big eater.
The staff are friendly but their service skills were average. They were rushed and not aware of what was going on at the tables.
Overall a good experience.

We have been here quite a few times with family and friends. The food is excellent every time. Mostly the service is too but sadly on this occasion when we were seated upstairs the waitress, whilst very polite was more interested in her mobile phone in view of customers and also applying her next coat of lipgloss in the service area. To the extent that on two occasions we had to wave to get her attention. That said the staff based downstairs were very attentive when finally serving drinks. This definately would not put us off returning as such a wonderful atmosphere! We would recommend tapas being apportioned and costed to the amount seated at table if above four people too. We will maybe try sitting downstairs next time!
