“Like Chinese, love Thai!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I like Chinese food, but for me Thai is preferable as it's lighter in consistency and more spicy with fresher flavours.

Nam Ploy is interestingly decorated & the furniture is great!
Food and service were also good and prices reasonable.

Will definitely visit again.

“Jewel in Bolton”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Visited with friends on 12/10/13 this is our 2nd visit and cannot fault the food! 8pm booking pretty busy but shown straight to table, shared starters and arrived promptly and hot! After starters we were entertained by a card trick specialist who mesmerised us with his slight of hand! Mains were very hot and delicious with plenty of time between courses, had sweets and Irish coffees beer and wine and bill was £110 what a result! Nice atmosphere and decor, really should be busier! Will be back!!

“Let down by new chef”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Nam ploy was once my favourite local Thai restaurant, the food was excellent as was the service, however on my most recent visit I ordered food that I had eaten previously. During the first course of Thai salad I noticed that something was wrong. The salad was usually very hot but full of flavour, with small pieces of fruit and a perfectly balanced clear sauce, this time the sauce was not clear and very salty and the salad was poorly presented with no fruit. I questioned the waitress and she said the chef had changed, bugger! The main course of red curry which was again usually a very hot offering but perfectly balanced, was laking in flavour and very salty. Please bring back the old chef!

“very good”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

IT's sometimes difficult to recreate the authentic taste of Thailand because the genuine ingredients have to be transported from Thailand but I've got to say Nam Ploy is as near as dammit to the food you'd get in BKK, in fact I rate their green curry better than some of the ones in BKK. Definitely recommended.
