“Recommend for a light lunch and uplifting welcome”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Having called in regularly over 4 years for breaks en route for University visits in Cardiff, it was a pleasure to return 2 years later and be welcomed back. Still presenting delicious lightly cooked lunches and scrumptious teas. With parking easily available and the option of food or drinks inside or out, in Swan courtyard (opposite the Nelson Museum), we will be returning whenever in the area.

“Top quality Take-Away Thai meal”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is our second review for The Whole Earth Cafe (the first was written a couple of years ago). This time we would like to add to our comments by saying that the standards are as high as ever and the joy of being able to order freshly cooked, healthy take away food is what makes us return over and over again.

Unlike so many other Take-Away establishments the food here is guaranteed to be delicious and totally authentic. If you're planning to invite friends for a weekend supper then save yourself the time and effort of cooking and order a Whole Earth Thai meal and you will not be disappointed!

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Admittedly, we've only had a takeaway from here but it was by far the best Thai food I've had in the UK. I had green curry which was very hot, just how it's supposed to be & took me straight back to eating in local 'side of the road' restaurants in Thailand! Will definitely be going back.

“A very friendly place and a great find”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant was busy and it was well into the evening when we arrived, after looking around the town for somewhere to eat. We were made very welcome. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was good. The food was served quickly but we didn't feel at all rushed.The owner takes an obvious pride and pleasure in running the restaurant. We enjoyed a freshly cooked and tasty meal.
Well worth another visit and next time we'll be sure to book having seen how busy the place can get.

“Okay visit...”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Visited here on a Saturday evening on one of the 'Thai Nights' seated quickly, drinks order taken (soft drinks - bring your own wine), no menu's given for quite a while (others that arrived after us were being seen too!) and only bought to us when one of the staff tried to take our food order!
We had Thai fish cakes and a mixed starter - fish cakes very large and flavoursome but not what we expected, mixed starter okay, although it came with a piece of toast with no crusts?? Main meals - I had chicken in a sweet and sour sauce - not as flavoursome as I expected - far too much sauce. BF had beef in oyster sauce - much tastier, still lots of sauce. Fried rice and noodles had no flavour at all :-(
It was an okay visit but in our opinion the food was lacking in real fresh flavour.
