What a great place to have a relaxing afternoon of food, drink and chilled music. Popped in on the off chance they'd have a table spare and ended up spending an enjoyable few hours in the lounge bar eating tasty tapas (especially the chicken with the satay sauce) in very relaxing surroundings. Looking forward to visiting again when next in... More

when it comes to decent Thai food, outside of Thailand, Koh Thai tapas is actually pretty good despite not being particularly authentic in some ways. the crispy beef (not the most genuinely thai dish on the menu) was fantastic and most other dishes tasted very good. they had chang beer which takes me back to Thailand immediately too which was...

This was a joint birthday/engagement celebration for my sister, who loves Koh Thai. With Koh Thai you know you're going to get good quality food with friendly service, so it's a safe bet! Two of us had the tasting menu, which is a good way of sampling dishes you might not normally try - all were delicious. The other two... More

We had a take out a few months back (ordered from the bar) and they forgot t give us our food which we weren't happy about (not cheap) BUT they gave us a free £30 voucher so we went back and had a much better experience eating in! Food is very good! Had better but had much much worse too!

Food came out cold in middle and did not seemed to be cooked properly. Table not wiped properly from previous people. But staff were polite and made you feel welcome.

This isn't the first review or visit but felt compelled to write and say what a truly excellent evening (again). Food and menu choice (we went for the slightly more expensive "let us choose for you" menu) was spot on. Service was great and we must have engaged with at least five of the team during the meal. This came... More

Had Tapas here with the family (wife, 2 kids 3 and 6). The staff were attentive, very comfortable in the presence of kids, happy to engage directly with them rather than the parents. We ordered Tapas, around 6 dishes. Service was quick, food was very good. Duck rolls weren't our favourite but shredded beef was superb. I would thoroughly recommend... More

I have booked this restaurant as a surprise for my partner while staying in Bournemouth. Beautiful restaurant, friendly and efficient service, amazing food, good New Zealand sauvignon Blanc too. What else to say? Go and try!
