Had a takeaway from here with a friend. My massaman curry was delicious and the coconut rice excellent. However, my friend did not enjoy her curry as much and the sweetcorn fritters we shared were extremely tasty but cold by the time they arrived. Overall, however, I would definitely order from here again as my curry was excellent.

Authentic and Lovely Thai food as always, my favourite is the seafood Tom Yum. I would only suggest that soup portions could increase a little and give waitress some training on food serving. Would definitely recommend it!

I have been to this little Thai restaurant on numerous occasions over the last two or three years and last came here a couple of weeks ago. The cafe was very busy on this occasion- normally it isn't full as it seems more popular with people who want a takeaway. The décor is quite simple and a little basic but... More

Before you go to the restaurant, note that it is never really busy as they have most there business from takeaways. Although you may be the only people in the restaurant the food will not let you down. Sometimes the food can take a while, but remember its all freshly made and prepared from scratch for you, I can assure... More

I recommend eating in. As Thai food goes in UK, this is as good and authentic as it gets. Have tried take away once but it is no where as good as Thai food does not travel well. If you did not like the take away, come down to the place and you won't be disappointed.

We have visited the Thai Cafe regularly and always enjoyed our food however the restaurant itself is always empty. I understand that the larger part of their business is to service the delivered takeaway demand however this is obviously to the detriment of the customers waiting to be served. After being seated in a completely empty restaurant on a Saturday... More

Please avoid this place! By far the worst Thai takeaway food we have ever had. We eat in a lot of Thai restaurants/takeaways and have never been so disappointed and ripped off. When I rang to complain and ask for my money back (over £40) neither the manager, owner or even head chef was available to speak to me. Member... More

Lovely fresh Thai food cooked by the owner and served by very helpful and polite staff. The decor is somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant, very simple, but very cosy and comfortable. Good value for money. A meal for two with starters and wine for under £50. Highly recommended. Parking a bit tricky so suggest walking or public transport,... More

This cafe is an easy walking distance from where I live and I have never been disappointed with the food. Portions are just the right size and reasonably priced. You can eat in or take away.

There is nothing bad about it. I've been to other Thai places and nothing compares. My only worry is that by leaving this review, I will have to start booking a table rather than walking in when I please as hopefully reviews like mine will see more people go.
