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!

“Didn't want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

I found this restaurant on trip advisor and the reviews were very good, which is what encouraged me to make a reservation. We found fa's to be an amazing place. With a beautiful intimate atmosphere. The host , Vince, was so friendly and nothing was to much trouble. The food was great value and to die for.we would highly recommend the beef in oyster sauce. Also by allowing you take your own drink you can keep your meal to a budget if this is what you require, brilliant idea!! The restaurant is small so book early, but don't take this as a bad thing as it adds a more personal touch to the whole experience. I cannot recommend this place enough we will definitely come back. Thank you for a perfect meal.

Everything about this place was just spot on. Atmosphere. Price. Service. And most importantly food. It took us back to thailand. The food was very fresh and authentic and will be going back again and again.

“It's a cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Nothing special here, just a plain cafe with noodles, it's clean tidy, staff straight faced, I live and work in Ramsgate and there's far better

“Yummy food & wonderful service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Having spent the last year or so eating Fa's noodles for lunch i was looking forward to going for an evening meal at the restaurant.

The diner is a little BYO restaurant in the middle of Ramsgate, simple with traditional Thai decor. I'd looked at the menu online before so knew what i wanted to order. The person that came with me was convinced they didn't like Thai food as they are not a fan of coconut. I'd explained this to the owner who assured me they'd be able to accommodate him.

On arriving there were 3 tables taken & we'd the choice of what was left, all tables appeared to have enough seating for 4 & there was plenty of room between them. Our wine was taken & popped into an ice bucket before additional cutlery taken away & we ordered.

We both had satay for starters, really nice & not too thick. Mains came when we were ready for them, we had Red Thai Curry with Jasmine Rice (really nice & hot) & a special pad thai (i think) with meat & seafood. Both dinners lovely & Fa's have converted the non Thai eater who is looking forward to coming again (especially as the bill came to less than 20 quid!

We'll be back very soon
