Visited the Jitlada last week for lunch , I live in Liverpool now but make a point of trying to squeeze in at least 1 visit ( lunch this time ) whenever I am in the area , To say nothing has changed in 10 years is acurate ( the quality is always fantastic , the mixed starters for 2 are a must Gordon Ramsey would be proud , The welcome is the friendliest in any town and the prices are ridiculously low £ 4 for a main with rice mixed starters for 2 £8 and ice cold singa beer by the bottle you dont have to pay through the nose for , always busy always a nice atmosphere and a place you will want to return to again and again my highest recomendation

When I arrived up the small quite side street the menu looked good and was reasonably priced. After seeing it on trip advisor I decided to give it a punt.
The spare rib starter was delicious.....
Then the diggers turned up outside and proceed to re-surface the road. Such a shame as the food, service and ambience (despite the diggers) was excellent.
I would 100% recommend to anyone, even 90% with the diggers outside.

The lunch menu is really the best thing about the Jitlada. It's varied enough to be interesting, the quality is very good, and the prices are reasonable enough to make me consider a restaurant for lunch rather than the ubiquitous fast food shops elsewhere in the town. The evening menu is obviously far wider, but the prices are comparably higher. I don't really visit for the food alone though - I love the genuine feel of the service from the couple who run it. They are always friendly, attentive and keen to offer good service, with none of that corporate fake-ness that I find so irritating elsewhere. I would definitely recommend it. I haven't given it 5 stars as I don't think the food is the best Thai in the country, but it is certainly the best in the area

ok - positives - staff attentive and was able tp grab seat as not too busy on a tuesday. i always like to baseline every thai i visit with a green curry. This one was a bit watery and though had lots of chicklen seemed to be lacking any veg! fresh thai basil and galangal were also absent making this a below average food but good service.
