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.

I've been here a number of times although I wont be going again. I booked a table about 1 month in advance to ensure I could reserve a table for my family reunion of 7 people. The lady took my booking. The night before my...family were to meet and attend I called the restaurant to confirm my booking to ensure everything was ok and this time a male answered the phone and he was extremely rude. He was almost shouting down the phone asking me the name of the person who took my booking shouting 'who, who, who,' -- how the heck should I know the employees name! He then arrogantly yelled they don't take bookings and hung up. I called back again and this time the same guy answered and he wanted an argument raising his voice instantly so I ended the call and I won't be going again. I read some of the other one star reviews and I can see other people have made bookings so they had in fact taken bookings. I think it is the male manager I spoke with on the phone. The reviews also mentioned very rude staff and manager. Oh well these restaurants become very busy because they take as many customers as possible and then they cannot cope, service drops and they begin blaming customers. Try Zapp Thai restaurant across the street or somewhere else, there are many Thai restaurants to choose from in Leeds.More

This is clearly a popular place as it's always busy. The food is very tasty, good sized portions and reasonably priced. I had a duck Pad Prik which was really good with the exception of the skin being left on the duck. If this isn't...going to be crispy then it needs removing as soft and rubbery is not pleasant. Service is a little lacking, took a little while to be served and drinks weren't offered before hand. Food and drinks then just brought to the table and placed down on the end for us to sort out. The restaurant and toilets could do with some attention and maintenance, looking tired and not overly clean. Overall there are better Thai restaurants in LeedsMore

First visit and loved the place, the staff and the busy ambience. Closest I’ve come to a genuine Thai restaurant outside of Thailand, no fuss decor and great tasting food. Can’t wait to go back.

The food here is always delicious and the staff are super helpful. If you're coming to lunch get there early as there is often a queue waiting outside to get in as it is so popular.

The most authentic thai food you can have in the UK! Eaten in a lot of Thai restaurants all over the country but nothing beats this place by a mile. Their food is always consistent and flavourful. The only slight downside for me is the...service can be slow but understandably, they are always busy especially on a weekend. Best to book in advance if you’re wanting to visit.More

I have been eager to try thai a Roy dee since moving to leeds a year and half ago because of the hype. I will start off by saying the customer service was good. Being a sucker for Peanuts I went for the gang matsaman!...I enjoyed it as the texture was smooth and the flavour was subtle. The reason for 3 stars is because the food didn’t blow me away. I also expect typical Thai spices to be offered/ on the table however none were provided. Will try again some day because of the hype.More

I've been coming to Thai Aroy Dee almost every week for a good few years now and the food is never anything less than exceptional. Ben, the front of house guy/waiter, is friendly and accommodating and will always do his best to seat those who...haven't booked in advance. But, if you turn up to one of the busiest restaurants in Leeds at 6pm on a Saturday night and can't get a table, it speaks volumes about the quality of the place, and only the self-entitled have left 1 star reviews because of this. The Tom Yum is fiercely spicy but doesn't sacrifice flavour for heat, the Pad Kee Mao is always a winner and the portion sizes are generous. I would recommend the Nam Tok Moo - it's an all-time favourite and the delicate balance of flavours/spices is masterful. I highly recommend Thai Aroy Dee to anyway who enjoys Thai cuisine, or anyone wishing to expand their tastes across Asia. Do not be put off by the "rude waiter" reviews - try running a popular and often fully-booked restaurant whilst dealing with people constantly turning up without a reservation and tell me it's not stressful! If you're looking for authentic Thai food at a very competitive price, look no further.More

Went here last weekend with friends as it was our first visit to the City. Went into the Restaurant and was confronted by a very unfriendly and rude Front of House male who asked if we had booked. I tried to explain that we had...not which he just shouted No waved his arms in the air turned around and walked off. We stood there for about 30 seconds as I actually thought he was joking. Clearly not. Not a good advert for the first Restaurant you go into on a first visit. Perhaps some training might be useful. My partner is a Catering Manager and she was appalled by his behaviour. Wouldn’t go back if they paid me. AvoidMore

Not sure what happened on second visit but was left disappointed. Chicken satay was cold, Pad Gra Prow was lacking in flavour. Place is very tired looking and in need of a refurb.

Where do I begin? Coming from London I never thought I would find a Thai restaurant as good as one back home. However, Thai Aroy Dee has some of the most authentic Thai dishes outside of Thailand and by far the best in Leeds. Some...of their best include their cashew nut fried rice, their Radnah noodles, and their steamed seafood rice noodles. Their Pad Thai is also some of the best I have ever tasted. Value for money is also amazing and whilst food might take a while to come out it is 100% worth the wait.More
