Description: The Thai House is a relaxing little gem in the heart of Eastbourne, located in the Little Chelsea area combining outstanding traditional cuisine and subtle authentic decor with a warm, welcoming ambience - bringing the charms of Thailand to Eastbourne. The chefs use only the very finest and freshest ingredients; the cooking style reflects a rich mix of the traditional dishes of Thailand whilst blending in a variety of regional specialties. To complement the experience we also serve traditional homemade Thai deserts and freshly made luxury Ice creams. We also keep a excellent and well-balanced wine cellar and a good range of Thai beers and Thai whiskies. Whether you are visiting the restaurant or ordering dishes to eat at home you can be assured of the finest Thai food cooked in the traditional way prepared from the very best ingredients. We are committed to offering customers a wonderful dining experience with a taste and warmth of Thai hospitality. Thai food healthy it captures an enormous variety of tastes and spices. It brings together cooking traditions from all over Asia. Thai food can be hot and spicy or mild. Many fresh herbs spices are used to enhance the flavours. One of the most important spices for any dish is fresh chilli, but there is far more to Thai cooking than chilli. Thai basil, coriander, garlic, black pepper corns, ginger, tamarind, mint, coconut, basil, lime and pandanus, are all used to enhance the flavours.

And a good green Thai curry.

Awful .. Pork was all gristle, sauce on anything seemed like it was out of a packet from a supermarket . Service was also bad, when we were told they could do a dish with duck and pancakes , so we ordered it, only to get a curry duck, no pancakes and were told we didn't order the right dish, even though we had a conversation with the waitress. Customer wrong as far as they were concerned and the waitress was so rude. Stay clear. We are local people and we will be advising friends not to go to The Thai House.

Dear Reviewer,

We were disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your meal at the Thai House along with your review. Although it was pointed out to you at the start that we are a Thai Restaurant and not a Chinese restaurant and that the cuisines are quite are different. Thank you for trying Thai Food and once again we are sorry that you did not like.

We have been here twice now. The food both times has been excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. Also there is Thai beer and several of the wines are available by the glass.

This is definitely the best Thai meal I or my wife have had. The choice of dishes is incredible with for me the range of fish and seafood dishes particularly impressive. Every dish was cooked perfectly with the sauces just right and never too cloying or too sweet as in my experience Thai food can sometimes be.

Great service and really good Thai Columbard wine finished off with 80% Thai liquor (obviously an option that not all would go for - but I thought it would have been rude not to!))

Firstly, the food was fantastic and Mon willingly provided recommendations and personalised my dish.

We were never rushed so we could enjoy our meal and the service from Mon was very attentive and friendly.

There is a great social atmosphere, but be aware that a busy Saturday night will be noisy!
