“Don't think twice”

If you are standing outside wondering how it is you should give it a go. The place is what it is but the food and the friendly service will compensate. Exceptional duck.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Some friends love this little restaurant and say all other Thai restaurants pale in comparison so we decided to try it for ourselves and were pleasantly surprised. It's only small, best to book, and they don't serve alcohol (you can bring your own, £1 corkage) but the food was just great. The kitchen is open to the basic dining area so you can watch the fantastic chefs if you want. The food is so fresh and tasty. We had a set menu so that we could try lots of different dishes and we couldn't fault any of them. Be warned, the credit/debit card machine doesn't pick up a signal very well and a few diners, ourselves included, had to pay cash instead (not a problem if you have some on you!).

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

You would never guess from the unassuming outside of this small and very busy restaurant just how fantastic the food is. After ten or more visits and take-always the food is consistently very good. Being vegetarian I can't vouch for the meat dishes, but the veggie ones such as the red curry and tofu are really lovely. The actual restaurant inside and out is pretty basic but somehow that doesn't matter - the atmosphere is always fun and lively, probably helped by Torbay Thai's BYOB policy!

“Fantastic food :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Went here for a meal with some friends.
Been eating here for a few years now this is my first review.
Found the food to be very tasty and the staff very friendly as always.
Cant believe some people can give this place a bad review .
Think tripadvisor is a good thing but not when you get people like (JOHN N)
who has reviewed 5 restaurants in torbay and rated 4 as terrible.
your review is a pack of lies.
people dont believe this idiot !!!

“Torbay Thai is the best restaurant for me...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

People have different taste,different views on TORBAY THAI RESTAURANT..There are few who are not satisfied for some reasons..might not be accomodated for booking or just want to destroy the image of Torbay Thai..I am not bothered to some disgraceful comment about the restaurant..Because I myself love the authentic Thai Food that they are serving!!The owner and the staff of Torbay Thai are friendly..Everything are fresh and not frozen...All the Thai staff work so hard and they are very accomodating..I never encounter any foul or bad taste from the food they are serving!!!And lastly the chef is really good and enthusiastic person because thats what they are..I recommend Torbay Thai...
