“Not sure what to think”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Went on a Saturday night a last min decision first impressions were good nicely presented place wasn't overly busy shown a table straight away.Drinks taken quickly and food orders taken soon after,must add service was excellent!.My starter was the calamari rings which were a little chewy but the batter they were in was like it was made out of the same batter you make doughnuts with!,for main I had deep fried fish in a chilli sauce fish was nice but the sauce overpowered it coconut rice and noodles to accompany food which were good.I would go again but I must admit I don't eat a lot of Thai food I prefer Chinese people say it just the same but it's not,I'll try this place again and order something else but it's worth going.

“Lovely dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went on our chistmas 'Do' on Friday 13th but we were very lucky in choosing this restaurant
The banquet was gorgeous from the delicious soup to the excellent home made? Icecream the waitresses are very professional and so smart overall a wonderful night out for just twenty five pound per head (plus drinks)

“Like Chinese, love Thai!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“thai or indian ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Thai or Indian..............?
I enjoyed my meal, kept it fairly simple, Tom Kar Gai, then Penang pla with coconut rice, all very nice....... but the meal "felt" more indian than Thai. spices were not so subtle, certainly not like Thai food i have eaten when travelling in the East !

“Jewel in Bolton”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!!
