“Value for money... and great food....result”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Went as a table of four with friends, and quickly realised this place is hidden gem, and a far cry from the old Sun pub it used to be....completely redesigned and transformed into a touch of Thailand...well almost

The menu is extensive and seemed to take an age to decide, such is the choice on offer. we ordered some drinks and the regular bottles of Singha were perfect.

Starters of Thai fish cakes , wontons, duck spring rolls and gai choop were organised, although I was not impressed with the 4 fish cakes which were size of large 10p piece and rubbery, everyone else's was very good.

We ordered some more drinks and the waitress then asked if we would like the LARGE bottles of singha...result..."it comes in pints"..to coin a phrase....

Mains of Weeping Tiger, Thai red curry and prawn stir fry were served...although the weeping tiger is a sizzling dish, they didn't arrive with the usual style and dramatic affair associated with it...more a weak fizz.. but take nothing away from that...this was an excellent, tasty dish, we had coconut rice, sticky rice and noodles to accompany. the coconut rice was very sweet and the sticky rice was glued in to the bowl...but again good tasty rice dishes as was the Thai red curry and the Prawn stir fry
A few more large Singhas and cocktails for the ladies and we were full to busting..

Overall the Thai Sun is a great place to eat and at a touch of £45 each, including tip,...considering the food and all the drink, we all agreed this was excellent value for money, compared to Leeds centre restaurants...and I would highly recommend giving it a try.

So once again thanks for reading my review of Thai Sun, Pudsey, please consider leaving me a helpful vote as this adds credence to my reviews and is helpful for other readers.
I try to be honest and impartial and only write about what I find on my visits.

So bye for now...yet another great stop-off on my WORLD DOMINATION TOUR.

“Great Thai resturant”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went a few days before Christmas hoping to be able to get a table without booking. We got in without a problem even though there were a couple of Christmas family parties in. Instead of getting starters and mains, we opted for 3 mains instead which seemed better value for money so can only comment on the mains, but they were great. Service was also prompt and very good. We asked for the jungle curry to be "extra spicy" but the waitress heard "not too spicy". after it came we simply asked for a few chillies to be added but they insisted in remaking the dish which came quite quickly and was perfect.
Well worth a visit and we will be regulars.

“GREAT FOOD!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We have been to Thai Sun on Saturday night.

Very busy when we arrived. We had beef red curry and volcano duck, We cannot complaint about the foods or service. We have a great night.

It a shame for a few comment down here which they thought they know about Thai food.

Anyway, THAI SUN you did a good job!! we will come back and recommend to our friend.


ps. you can't please everyone. The best thing can do is just to believe in yourself and do what you think is right for you.
