Passed this venue numerous times during the day. On this occasion we had gone to two other venues who could not accommodate us before trying Poonthais. Starters and main courses were all lovely and freshly cooked; the sweet selection was limited to 2 items. would definitely go back.

As a group of eight lads, we were made to feel less than welcome when half of our party arrived only to find that the manager had doubled booked and claimed to not have our booking. After this showdown with the other guests, which was resolved by them backing down and agreeing to dining outside in the heated "beer garden" (no small feat for 8pm in mid October in North Berwick), there was a slight delay in taking our order. However, I put this down to there being two large parties to accommodate. Once our orders were taken we got our food quite quickly, and it was of good quality with fresh ingredients and nice flavours. The only other drawback was they ran out of beer, but allowed us to go next door to buy some from the Co-Op. It is the sort of thai restaurant that has that cosy, front room feel to it, which you either love or hate. We all loved it and would definitely come back.

Our table was ready for us on arrival.

Drinks menu was inaccurate - we ordered sparkling NZ white but were advised that there was Prosecco instead. I ordered a branded Thai beer as listed but was advised that another brand would be substituted.

We were uncertain about starters so took the advice to have mixed starters to share. They arrived promptly but were uninspiring.

The main courses we selected also arrived promptly but were rather insipid.

We declined to order dessert.

Overall: inexpensive, quick friendly service, but food was disappointing.

Great place to eat at any time of the day. The food is always freshly made and great tasting. Have been dining here for years now and the standard is just so consistently good.

We stopped in on a lovely evening for some Thai and were not disappointed. The service was excellent with lovely staff and the food was fantastic. Pretty reasonable prices too. Don't be put off by the basic look of the interior, it's the food (and staff) that are the star here.

Would highly recommend a visit, and in a nice evening ask to sit out in the courtyard.
