Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely warm ambience by riverside. We were greeted by the staff who were very courteous and happy to cater to our vegetarian needs. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. They asked for the level of spice we wanted and were happy to tweak...it to our needs. We ordered the set menu with a range of starters which was a good sharing platter.Along with that we had a set menu with veg massman curry , papaya salad , jungle curry and veg noodles that my 8 yr old son loved it so much that he finished it happily. We recommend it to everyone and we will be definitely visiting this restauranton our next visit to Bristol.More

Last night of a short trip to Bristol and we fancied a Thai meal. Quick search brought this up and we booked and headed down. Place was a bit quiet which got us thinking we had made a mistake but nothing could have been further...from the truth. Staff were brilliant and friendly. We made an error in our order which we corrected without and issues from the staff. Our food was faultless from start to finish. I like authentic Thai (hot) and asked for extra heat which was delivered and left me sweating. Prices were fair, wine wasn't overpriced (Merlot) and overall we were most impressed with the whole experience. I'll be heading back on my next trip to Bristol.More

Online order of cashew nut tofu, veg and rice. The food was tasty and arrived hot even from quite a distance because of how well wrapped it was e.g., the cold drink was not put in the same bag as the hot food, and the...rice was double wrapped and all in plastic boxes. Great caring for my allergy, they wrote gluten free on the box so I could feel safe knowing it was. The food was good quality, cooked well and nicely presented. Thought even went into the pretty shaping of the carrots. I would be a regular here but for one thing, there were only 4 small bits of tofu in the meal, so it was mostly veg and rice. If the Local Thai reply to say they will add even two more small bits of tofu to this meal I would order it often! Overall, thank you.More

We had a takeaway from here and I had to write a review as the food was outstanding. I had prawn Penang curry, it was full of flavour and fresh vegetables. The large butterfly prawns were fresh and tender. The jungle curry was also delicious...with tender tasty marinated beef as was the mixed starter. Best Thai takeaway I’ve ever had.More

Will never go there again. Loved the Thai that was here before it was taken over and assumed this would be as good, but unfortunately not. The restaurant carpet is filthy. Staff are rushing around and seem not to understand what you say. A female...appeared to be the manager but not very effective in my opinion. We spent £58 on poor quality food. 2 starters and 2 mains. After about 20 minutes they arrived with 1 starter and both mains. The ‘manager’ then took the mains back and we had to wait 20 minutes for 2nd to arrive. We ordered squid but it was tasteless. Mains not much better. I ordered Thai Green Prawn Curry. Small portion with 6 tiny prawns which again was pretty tasteless. Whole evening was spoiled. I do not recommend this restaurant.More

Ordered from this place yesterday and paid for prawn version of two dishes paying £4 extra just to have those prawns and in total I got 4 tiny prawns in my soup and 4 tiny prawns in the noodles - an amazing £0.50 for per...shrimp. In addition, the worst Tom Kha soup - it had no veggies in it whatsoever, just the mushrooms galore and 4 tiny prawns. I do not recommend this Thai. Never had anything worse.More

We went for a birthday meal and we were the only people in the restaurant! I guess it was a Thursday. The food was excellent and great portioned sizes. The service was also very good and consistent. I found the price quite high but I...don't usually eat out at Thai restaurants so don't have much to compare it to. Will be visiting again!More

My daughter and I ordered a delivery for dinner. We both like Thai food and I had previously lived in Bangkok for two years and then Pattaya for two years and was hoping that the food that we ordered would be decent. How wrong was...I…. Sweet and sour chicken in a small portion with a few bits of chicken breast some sliced peppers in a shop bought sweet and sour sauce. Shrimp Pad Thai, some noodles cooked in egg with a few shrimps included. Real Pad Thai comes with an omelette and there was also a small pot of crushed peanuts. Salt and Pepper Shrimp that tasted ok but there was no salt and pepper. Last of all Special Fried Rice with Vegetables and Tofu. This was fried rice with a couple of pieces of Tofu included and some huge chunks of Broccoli that was only partially cooked. All in all I could have gotten all of the ingredients at a local supermarket and it would have tasted better. To call what we had Thai food is an insult to Thai cooking and we will definitely not be ordering from this place again. My daughter took a photo but accidentally deleted it so no posting. If I could give this place zero rating even more than terrible then I would.More
