If you are comparing your taste buds against the true taste and flavour of Thailand then forget going to Favourite Thai. This is a restaurant that has been localized to cater to the English taste bud. Ordered a tom yum soup (mushroom) was very a bit sweet followed by the steamed carp fish with thai lime sauce. The fish had a bad fishy odour and taste and the sauce was utterly disappointing. Having spent a week in Burton, I was really looking forward to dining here after reading all the reviews. Go ahead and vote for Baan Thai - read my review on them! Definite worth a visit or two when you are in Burton as it is very close to the true Thai cuisine. So I would say all those people who voted for Favourite Thai has NEVER travel abroad to Thailand. Poor souls!

Our second visit was every bit as good as the first. The owner, Chairad (no idea how to spell it) is the most friendly, attentive, fun guy you could ever wish to meet. He is so lovely that you would want to go back even if the food was rubbish but it is actually just as good as the service. Presentation is stunning, quality is excellent and portions are good. There is not a bad thing I can possibly say about this place!!

This isn't the first time we've been to the Favourite Thai and it remains quite simply the best Thai restaurant for miles around!
Despite having local Thai restaurants, and in Sheffield, we don't mind going several miles to savour the best Thai food you can imagine!
On this visit we tried something different from the delicious dishes we normally have - and we weren't disappointed! Everything we selected was fantastic!
The menu is extensive and has a wide range of delicately spiced and tasty dishes to suit every palate and the wine list covers any choice.
We had delicious and spicy mussels, beautiful tempura battered prawns and vegetables to start, followed by one of their spicy and flavoursome soups - absolutely superb!
My wife had duck breast with noodles and was blown away by the dish whilst I had the stir fried chilli beef which was terrific!
We couldn't choose dessert or coffee as we were absolutely full in the best possible sense!
Service is immaculate and they can't do enough for you from start to finish!
We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough and won't go to any other Thai other than the Favourite Thai - try it out, you won't be disappointed!! Try the No 37 fish dish - one of the best!

Always difficult to find a nice place to eat when you are not familiar with a place and you only have a short stay. Via tripadvisor we found this place with good reviews and decided to give it a try. I confirm good choice :o) Food was very nice. We took a menu: starters were delicious, same were the main courses, one by one a real pleasure to taste. The restaurant keeper was a very nice person - thanks once more to him - service was good and he was honoured we told him we liked his meal. Don't hesitate, just go there.

Ate here midweek when there were only a couple of other groups eating in the restaurant.

Staff were very attentive, maybe too attentive. Constantly topping your glass up but serving bottled beer instead of beer on the pumps which is more expensive.

The food was nice but did feel a little like you were sat in a strangers dining room being waited on.

I would return here
