“Good food great value”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Although food was not quite as pictured it was very good value and was delivered very quickly after our order was placed. Every Thai House Express has great food for great value. Had a bit of a hiccup when the woman behind the counter interpreted "prawn" as "pork" but other than that we had great service and a great meal!

“Our most un-remarkable Thai meal ever”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

The pictorial menu of large coloured dishes is on the wall - order by number. The most significant part of their trade appears to be take-aways but there are plenty of tables . I ordered a dish of chicken with vegetables and peanut sauce. The chicken comprised a number of tough, thin, fried strips; the sauce lacked any definitive flavour; most of the 'vegetables' were leaves of raw cabbage and the whole dish was just warm.

The chicken in my partner's dish was chicken mince and quite tasteless.

Avoid !

“No real flavor”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Ordered here and a couple from across the street to compare. Both disappointing and lacking flavor. No real Thai favors would not eat here again.

“Cheap & tasty”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Needed to very quick meal before an event. Basic presentation of food selection (photos and numbers on the wall) but don't let that put you off - this place meets the needs of if your in a hurray and just want a very quick meal, don't over look it. The green curry was very tasty, so give it a go. I wouldn't take friends there to relax and dine, but it has a place in the market all the same.
