My son booked this restaurant when we visited him last weekend. Friendly welcome and excellent service. The food is beautifully presented and the best Thai cuisine I have ever eaten (Thai is my favourite). I honestly and neither can my husband or son find fault with any and it will be top of our list when we next visit. Thank... More

We went for dinner on a busy Thursday evening. The upstairs bar area was nice and welcoming, as were the staff. We were taken downstairs to our table, in one of their two cellar rooms. Ours was quite spacious, well lit and comfortable. Service was excellent, food was very good and fairly priced. The atmosphere was good too.....until a group... More

We visited So Thai this week to celebrate my birthday. It was our first visit and we went with my son following his recommendation and we certainly were not disappointed. Even though we ate downstairs and I normally do not like dark restaurants with low ceilings, the uncramped lay out if the tables arranged spacious lay gave a very good... More

Having read the reviews, I thought I should give it a go while in Gloucester on business. Really attentive staff and authentic food. I've spent a fair amount of time in Thailand and prefer the local food rather than the generic tourist stuff; this is about as good as it gets outside of the land of smiles. Will return next...

We popped in at 7pm Saturday hoping to get a table without booking and as soon as we entered we were asked if we'd booked.. we said no and were immediately told they were fully booked, even though the place was almost empty. My friend asked if we could stay and leave by a certain time if they needed a... More

Vert well presented food and taste and quality excellent. Made for a nice night out and also a change from the normal style of food we have. Service a little slow but did not detract from the overall quality of the food. Good stuff! Nice and relaxing

Walked in to an empty bar and was worried. Trade looked toooo quiet. I thought this was it. To my surprise The lady took us downstairs. To a gorgeous underground setting with a dining set up. My waitress was sooo friendly and the food was fantastic - piping hot food and top quality. How a business should be run -... More

Every time we have a birthday or a team lunch we have it here - it's always great service, delicious food and there's a lovely cosy feel to it. I'm partial to the veggie tofu curries - I could eat one a day forever!
