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.

Living in the middle of nowhere and only having the bog standard Chinese takeaways and Fish n Chip shops in the surrounding villages, we rarely have take aways as you just can't beat a good Thai or Indian. So when we found Thai Kitchen on...google, only 20 mins from our office, we read the reviews and had to get a take away in on Friday night. We are vegan and vegetarian and found plenty of choice on the menu. We ordered the Vegetable Spring Rolls and Tung Tong for starters, followed by a Pad Thai, Pad Lee Mao and Jungle Curry (all vegetarian / tofu option of course). Every dish was flavoursome, fresh and colourful. Nothing was over cooked and considering we had a 45 minute drive home after collection, left the dishes in the oven to keep warm for a further 20 minutes, the food was not soggy or had lost any colour (nor was there any oil sitting on top of the dishes, which you sometimes find on some dishes). Absolutely delicious and worth every penny. I did read a review that a couple had paid over £70 for their food, and although they ordered a vast number of dishes, they believed it was not value for money (or were the servings large enough). I completely disagree, we are in Britain, eating authentic Thai food, cooked fresh, in the year 2023, the cost of living is through the roof; food, fuel and energy prices are astronomical, so for the £51 which we spend on our dishes (plus there was a rice which came with the Jungle Curry), in this day and age, I do not think it is over priced at all, the price matches the quantity & quality. We had a lovely dinner and there was enough for lunch for one person the next day. We will most certainly be ordering again. Thank you Thai Kitchen for one of the best take aways we have had in a number of years.More

Firstly this was the most expensive take away I ever got for 2 people (£71) yes there was a lot of food, but I found the quality to be sub-average and wasn’t what I expect from a reputable Thai Restaurant/take away. I will detail my...order below with comments- •Prawn Tom yum soup- nicely flavoured but only 3 small prawns •Ped Makham - nice sauce but duck was more fat than meet, very chewy •Pla Sarm- good quality fish (although very small) but tastes like it had just been cooked in a whole bottle of sweet n sour sauce •Thai Chicken wings- (avoid) these looked and tasted like they had just been thrown in a deep fat fryer from frozen, was not fresh, the meat was grey and they were massively under flavoured •Duck spring rolls - nice •Thai style ribs- I didn’t know that Thai style rips are identical to American BBQ rips, they were just cooked in a Smokey BBQ flavoured sauce (not Asian style at all) • pork and sesame toast - average tasting • jasmine rice - not enough, needs to be more to accompany the main dish Overall flavours were varied, quality was average for me the soup tasted the best and seemed the most authentic.More

INCREDIBLE! Just had my first takeaway from here after living down for road for a while. Honestly one of the best takeaways I’ve had. Everything was so flavourful, and the service was brilliant. Tom yum soup was quite literally perfect, and then I had the...pad khing with prawns which was also perfect, a generous serving of rice, and shared a starter box (as much as I could manage). Everything was just amazing. Will definitely be back soon!More

We love to cook at home and source great ingredients locally. However, sometimes life is busy and a takeaway is a great option. But recently we don’t eat out or takeaway likely due to the food price crunch everyone is feeling and is truly showing...in take away and restaurant food. We travel 1 hour round trip for a good chinese, Indian we cook at home but boy oh boy this Thai is spot on and on our doorstep. Great flavours, fresh produce and reasonably priced. I’m happy! And will definitely be back. Thank youMore

This is the best Thai takeaway I’ve ever had. Every dish was well cooked and delicious. The standouts were probably the Tom Yum soup, Panang curry and the Tamarind Duck. I want to try every dish on the menu. 👏👏👏👏👏
