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.

What an amazing Thai restaurant. The food was outstanding and excellent service. It was a slightly reduced menu than advertised on their website but this was due to staff shortages. But that did nothing to detract from the deliciousness of the food. Highly recommended.

Great meal at Zen Thai! We have had takeaway before but never sat in to eat and it was even better, it had a really lovely cosy feel. We had the Penang curry , satay chicken, coconut rice and papaya salad- what a combo!! Especially...the papaya salad (som tam) , was absolutely delicious. We had coconut ice cream for dessert which was the perfect cooling , light follow up. Friendly and attentive waiting staff too (a young man and woman) and great value!More

Quite simply fantastic. The food was out of this world, with a first class service. The decor is stunning and Mrs Kingston-Fox loved her glass (or three) of wine 🍷

We were a large family group visiting Somerset from London and this was a wonderful surprise - finding such delicious and authentic Thai food in Cheddar. Service was excellent and the atmosphere warm and inviting. A must visit if you are in the area.

We are lucky enough to live locally which was why we tried this restaurant in the first instance... BUT Oh my this restaurant is worth a long drive to visit. They pride themselves on using the best Thai indgredients, the meals we have eaten have...all been amazing! We were relatively new to Thai cuisine, Liam who served us was outstanding at guiding us through the menu and helping us combine dishes that completmented each other for the best allround experience. The food was out of this world, the service was exceptional. Worth booking a table to ensure availability as you wouldn't want to miss out!More

We wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary, and we weren't disappointed! The service was friendly and excellent and everything we had was fantastic. Spring rolls and crab rangoon to start, with jungle curry and Panang curry for mains. We will definitely be back...to try everything else on the menu.More

It was definitely on the menu when we were there in August, although we had the banana fritters. If your visit depends on the dessert you're enquiring after, then I suggest you call them on 01934 740444 and ask.
