“Might as well dine at McDonalds.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went to Thai Fever after buying a Living Social voucher. My girlfriend had been before and had a mixed experience but I was keen to see having passed it many times. Upon arrival we were greeted with a very quiet (two other tables apart from us at most) restaurant at 7pm, although we were welcome well and served quickly for drinks, we were patronised when ordering food and dared to ask a question, we overheard another table have a similar problem. Whilst eating we had to shout across the room for another drink whilst two waitresses manned what was at this point an empty restaurant. Once our plates were removed we sat waiting for the offer of dessert menus which didn't come, after around 30 minutes of a waitress passing us by to serve other tables (two others at this point - it was manic) we went to leave and settle up a small bill. Unfortunately I couldn't pay by card as the amount was below £10, it would have been higher if we had been served. On mentioning the poor service I was told that apparently no-one likes being offered dessert or anything else throughout a meal. This is a shame as the food was quite good but the experience has left a sour taste in our mouths.

“Dreadful service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Food was ok, but service was dreadful. We were one of only two couples in the restaurant and had to ask for a drink and leave to get our bill. Dreadful.will never go again

“Used to be really good, but..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

This used to be the local Thai place to go for my girlfriend and I. There was a very friendly chap who seemed to run the place and always greet us and sit us immediately (without us needed to book). The food was always corking, the service fast, and we never ever had any complaints.

However, more recently, we're pretty sure the place has been taken over by a different management team. We went in one busy Sunday night and there was literally two women serving the entire restaurant (one seemed to be the manager, and the other was actually the chef!) We could sympathise that they were busy, but the attitude, particularly of the manager, was especially snobby. Took an age for our plates to be cleared in between courses, and I had to ask three times just to get a beer, only for the woman to turn her nose up and say each time "I'm on it". The warm, friendly, welcoming feel of the Thai place we used to go to definitely seemed to have vanished; on top of that, it appeared the menu had been changed, also, the prices had gone up, and the food wasn't actually all that.

A great shame.

“Great authentic cuisine in Shipley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Been here 3 times now and enjoyed every one. The food is great and always well presented, the staff are friendly and always happy. The prices are good too, not tried the set menu in dec as there are so many other choices to try first! Highly reccommend for an authetic Thai meal.
