“Great”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I love this restaurant. The food was lovely, hot and as promised. The furniture is small, and I had trouble sitting in the first tables and chairs as I the seat was small and the table was low, but the service is friendly and the prices are good.

“Fabulous food, take away probably a better option if you don't like a bit of a wait.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The food is excellent and the staff friendly, accommodating and attentive. We mostly order take away but do eat in on occasion. We know to expect a bit of a wait if they are busy but the quality of the food makes up for it. They are busy for a reason!

There isn't a Thai for miles anywhere near as good as this place.

“A busy night”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We have eaten here before, and the food as ever was good. They were really busy and we hadn't booked, but they fitted us in (and obviously people are not reading these reviews and choosing not to go). We waited for a while for our starters - but then everything flowed. There were 2 ladies "waiting on" - very attentively, and 2 cooking in the kitchen.

The only drawback (didn't affect the taste of the food) was the happy ping of a microwave constantly.

Beware they only take cash/cheques which in this day and age is unusual.

“Terrible 2 hour wait for main course on birthday”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

A party of 7 , Thai meal 2 courses.
Sadly this was a Terrible experiance
Birthday meal - in a nut shell we waited 2 and a half hours for our main courses, YES hard to believe know . No menus when we arrived, eventually got our starters and they were good but had to order our main courses before we finished as we were very concerned that it would be ages for our food to arrive .
YES we were right, two hours and still no food...sorry guys but we really had to go, you were all very polite and lovely but at the it was too much. End of the day we were there to eat food and celebrate a birthday .
The evening was ruined after being there two and a quarter hours and only a starter, it was painfull and really wanted this to work, the kitchen needs to have a big re think, it can't produce the basics and the front f house staff suffer due to their lack of effecuency in te kitchen !!!! Sorry guys but it was terrible

“Wonderful thai food, but expect............”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

I've been to a few Thai restuarants which are springing up (usually) in old pubs in the Norfolk/Suffolk area and the experience and flavours do not taste original.

The Sing Tong Thai has been in Diss since the 1980's, mainly as a coffee shop serving sandwichs and some thai food during the day. At night its been 100% thai.

Our last visit was with family, the 3 of us had a wonderful time and the food was tasty and is more original compared to the new synthentic thai offering in the region.

Couple of area which stops our family returning more regular are

a) the ventilation is poor in the old upper floor town house building, your cloths will most probably need to go in the wash when you return from cooking smells and you will need a shower

b) it's usually very busy as there are limited tables so you will wait a while, this is not aided by the kitchen being tiny (i have the utmost respect for the chef for the qaulity produced in a small area) and only able to cook on one applicance.

c) the tables and chairs suit the coffee shop during the day, but in the evening they are not comfy (if you are waiting) and not big enough if you or a party with mulitple dishes on the hot plates.

As i have noted above, go here if you want authentic thai tasting food, better than many in the area and even far afield as London.
