Although the windows are emblazoned "Authentic Thai" we should have noticed sooner that there wasn't an oriental in the place. It apparently has links with the Indian restaurant next door and the food, though sort of edible, has that thicker consistency usually associated with Indian cooking and probably a visit to the cash and carry. Best avoid.

A combined leaving do & Christmas celeration for 7. I had read a bad review (1 of 1) plus it was Christmas & the restaurant was full so I feared the worst. What a great surprise - the food & service were both excellent. We has a set meal (basically for simplicity) - the quality, variety & quantitiy were all fantastic.

The Green Curry was green. The steamed rice was steaming. So far, so authentic. Beyond that, there seemed little about our meals that reminded us of good Thai cuisine in the many real Thai restaurants we have all visited. Sorry to be negative about a new place, but the good news is that there are other very good Thai restaurants in Hereford.

We went to Sea Shells on the first sunday in december for a meal celebrateing my friends 19th birthday, there were five off us. the staff were all really friendly and couldnt help us enough, we ordered our starters and were amazed by the handmade dips that came with the prawn crackers, they were so nice and authentic (just like they are in thailand) we couldnt get enough and the waiters refilled them several times for us without charge.

all the main courses were excellently cooked and the tastes came through wonderfully.. all in all the BEST thai restaurant i have eaten in with authentic tastes.

great value for money, nothing excessively over priced

have recommended to all of my friends and family and will be taking a group of students from my university... we look forward to another excellant evening
