this little gem needs to be shouted about! a genuine, warm welcome awaits you in this cosy, stylish restaurant which in my opinion serves the best Thai food I've ever had in this land. and believe me I've tried the best. this is surely the closest you will get to eating the beautiful food from its native country, its really that good! I'm the biggest critic being a chef myself and understand the love that goes into every dish that comes from this kitchen visit or you will miss out on something special. keep up the great work finale :)

This was a lovely discovery thanks to tripadvisor. Finale is a super, quite contemporary Thai restaurant snuggled into an old building in the heart of Derby (formerly Porters Pantry). The service was charming. Some comments have suggested the service is show but for a relaxed evening meal the pace was spot on. The food was lovely, the Tom yum soup in particular was stand out. We had one of the set meals but are looking forward to trying some of the wider menu options which look delicious.
It was quiet when we were there, but in the middle of January perhaps that is to be expected. Still, i really hope this place develops a clientele as it deserves to do well.

Came here for the early bird menu, food was the best Thai I've had. Portions were great value for money. Service was perfect. Will definitely be going back here again soon and recommending to friends and family.

I was in Derby on business so eating alone - I used TripAdvisor to find this restaurant. The restaurant is small on the outside and downstairs (but has an upstairs which I didn't see).

I had a Thai soup starter which was hot, spicy and delicious (priced just under £5).
For main course I had jasmine rice (£2.50) and chicken Massaman curry (£10). Again delicious.
Food is great and interestingly presented to the table.

It was only a Wednesday early evening, but the restaurant was very quiet which is amazing given its quality.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

This place is a little gem and, I believe, soon it will be a very popular little gem!!! I've visited Thai Dusit just up the road on several occasions and whilst TD is good, Finale is a well deserved cut above. I'm not going to give a lengthy review just suffice to say the service, the food, the atmosphere - everything was absolutely marvellous!! Ideal if you are a vegetarian too as the menu choice is extensive. I recommend you just go and find out for yourself!!
