“Just like being there”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I travel to Thailand every year for holidays.
So many times we have tried 'Thai' food in restaurants in England only to find that the food is, in fact, just another variation of Chinese. After a few recommendations we decided to give Tong Thai a try. What a pleasant surprise to have good Thai food served by their charming Thai staff. We shared vegetable spring rolls as a starter and followed that with a Mussaman chicken curry, plain rice and a Pad Thai. A bottle of Chardonnay was the accompaniment and the whole experience was excellent. Now we know that the food is 'like being there' we shall be back. Well done Tong Thai!

“My favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I have been many times and also used it for takeaways. This is without doubt the best oriental restaurant I've ever been to! The food is amazing, the staff are lovely. Absolutely superb!

“excellent food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited this restaurant last Saturday, the first time we had ever been there, It will not be the last one. The food is excellent as is the service, The restaurant is not on the cheap side, but is well worth every penny you spend, We went as a family of 5 and the bill was around £112 without service charge. We booked a early table, but the place was soon very full. Cannot be faulted at all. 5stars.

“You are in for a treat”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place never fails to deliver. It is not cheap, but you do get portions that are big on flavour and also very pleasing to both the palate and also the eye. My family generally use this as a special occasion restaurant and have always left extremely happy with the evening that we have just had.
In a nutshell if thai food is what you fancy you will not go wrong.
I had there fish cakes and also there pork with ginger absolutely gorgeous.

“Perfectly yummy!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This place never fails to impress! The food is always spot on, the portions are generous, the staff are always friendly even when manically busy and I'd go there every single day if I could get away with it! Love love love their prawn Thai curry and coconut rice!
