Description: Fa's Diner can be found in the centre of Ramsgate, just a short walk from the seafront and Royal Harbour. Our food is true to Thai recipes, we pride ourselves in keeping the dishes as authentic as possible making them zesty, fresh, clean tasting and often spicy. Please don't worry if you're not used to hot food, as all of our dishes are freshly cooked they can be made to be quite mild, however, if your taste is on the spicy side, tell the waiters and they will ensure your dish comes to you in true Thai style. Many of our ingredients are locally sourced, we try wherever possible to use local traders and local produce, the chef can often be seen in the local green grocers and butchers selecting the meat, vegetables and herbs to be used that evening.We are a BYO (bring you own) restaurant so please bring your own wines and beers, we supply the glasses and ice. We do offer a selection of soft drinks. Whether you visit us as a novice or as a seasoned Thai food diner, we will always strive to exceed your expectations. Please try to book your table in advance as we are often fully booked!

“Thai Food How It Should Be!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I've visited Fa's Diner a few times now to make a good and fair review as I love my Thai Food!. I attended with a group of friends. When you enter the restaurant you are immediately made welcome by the restaurant staff. We were a medium sized group and all the food came out at the same time which was good, no body waited around. As for the food, its all hand made in the kitchen and you can See the kitchen staff working hard through the cubby hole. The meal I had was the Dim Sum starter recommended which was very nice and for the main I had the Pad Thai and Sweet & Sour Pork which was also very nice, lastly for desert I had the Coconut in the Coconut Shell. You can also take your own alcoholic beverages, Will be going back for my partners Mum's Birthday!!

“Gloriously tasty authentic Thai”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Enjoyed an extremely tasty meal this evening, with great company. Fa's was fully booked, with everyone enjoying the food and atmosphere, until the most obnoxious woman entered, who proceeded to be extremely rude to Vince, And managed to attract everyone's attention with her rude, hostile and very aggressive behaviour. Fa's is a great restaurant and doesn't need bullies like that trying to give the restaurant a bad name. We personally love the food and atmosphere.Fa and Vince you are doing an outstanding job, well done for keeping your cool, with the obnoxious idiots who tried to ruin everyones evening.

“cheap meal”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

had a good value meal at Fa's but you get what you pay for and the food was just ok. The owner is lovely very friendly and welcoming. We shared some starters for £10, nice enough but straight from a supermarket freezer probably Iceland across the rd. The mains of red curry, lamb shank and garlic chicken were all very basic . The bill however for 3 was only £31 so cant really complain. Bringing your own wine is a bonus.

Vince M, Manager at Fa's Diner, responded to this review, May 7, 2013
Hi, we're sorry you appear to have not enjoyed your meal with us. However, i would just like to reassure you and our other customers that in the main, our food including the starters are hand made by the staff and that we certainly don't source anything from Iceland other than the bread we use in the sesame toast, this is why most of our products lack the uniformity found with frozen products. In any case, we thank you for your review....

“Great traditional thai food and great atmosphere, will definitely be back for more.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We spent a lovely night in the company of friends at Fa's diner, from the beginning we were welcomed by the owner/waiter for the evening. The choice of food was just right and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend the dim sum starter. We were told from the start that the food is cooked in the traditional way so has a kick but the waier Vincent was happy to advise if you like you curry on the mild side (like my wife) that they could tame it for you. The prices were very good and im just waiting for another excuse to visit again.
