“Nice surroundings and service but quality of meat and ingredients very poor”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

I don't have a lot to say about this place, probably the poorest quality meal I have had in Asia over a months trip.
I had the thai green curry with chicken. Chicken was of the poorest quality with small bones left in some pieces, was definitely not fillet or breast. Vegetables in the curry were all wilted and shriveled which suggests they were far from being at their freshest!
If I had of been in Ireland or the UK without the language barrier , I would have sent it back or complained.

Restaurant is nice modern, team very friendly but left down by what they are serving. Would not recommend, plenty of places nearby with high quality meat and fresh fresh veg and ingredients.

“Thai express restaurant”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The food was good although the green curry was far too spicy. 3 out of 4 of us really enjoyed our meal.

Thai Express was very close to the hotel that I've stayed! the food there was nice and delicious! Love the environment! One thing was I think the food was quite pricy compare to local restaurants!

“Great food”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Enjoyed two meals there and loved the food .... The only downside was that you had to climb up two flights of stairs.
