Ordered the set meal for 2, £30 each. A bit on the expensive side for a set meal. Service was fast but not very cheerful and no explaining what was what, all the starters come together on one last plate. Chicken balls were very rubbery,...fritters were greasy but ribs and satay were good. Main courses included duck and fish which were served in appropriate shaped dishes. Asked what was in the duck sauce and waitress couldn’t explain. Was not checked on or offered deserts. Great decor and restaurant was busy despite being tucked away down a side street.More

Just read some of the more recent reviews and we they are the opposite to how we felt about Thai Modern. Firstly decor was really nice- must have spent a fortune in fixtures and fittings. This was our 1st visit, and whilst I expected the...chilli and salt squid to be more in line with what we get at a Chinese, I was not disappointed, it was different is all. Everyone enjoyed it. (Was very much like deep fried crispy beef.) Also had duck pancake rolls and Tom yum soups. We were all pleased with our starters. Mains were all delicious, we had 2 duck dishes, a lamb massaman and I had my usual spicy seafood (which I can benchmark as it’s my go to dish at every Thai) and it was all very well received. All portions were priced right in my opinion. We ordered 2 jasmine teas- and even these were served in pretty teapots etc. Just overall felt spoilt. And thankful we found this place by chance as others in Northamptonshire didn’t open for lunch on Saturdays. We came to celebrate our daughter’s academic achievements and both the kids were feeling so happy throughout the meal with the food they ordered. Definitely come here again. Thank you! 🙏🏽More

Good food. In fact it was very nice food. Would have gone there again if in the area but there's been a slight issue since paying with chip and pin. When paying the waitress said there was an issue with the paper in the terminal....She disappeared round the corner. A few minutes later she went to the till and eventually came back with the receipt. Bearing in mind this is the only place this card has been used with chip and pin. Today had call from Bank regarding suspicious behaviour to value of nearly £2000 with someone using the pin! Looks like the card was cloned at the restaurant. So, if eating here be careful when paying. If the waitress disappears in the wrong direction from the till I'd advise stopping you card immediately.More

Myself and my two adult children had lunch here yesterday. We had the crispy squid and the prawns with honey for starters. Both of which were disappointing. The crispy squid were just really thin slices with more batter than squid and did not look or...taste good. May be due to oil that has not been regularly changed. The prawns with honey had far higher ratio of sesame seeds to prawns. The main course was a slight improvement with the only issue being the very small amount of cashew nuts with my Chicken with cashew nuts. Given the very high prices, I would certainly have expected a better standard and quality. We will certainly not be back anytime soon. Shame as the restaurant has a nice setting.More

Went here to celebrate my birthday , staff were not polite or helpful, constantly coming over to check if we had finished, even moved my starter plate while I was still eating!! A very rushed experience & certainly not made to feel welcome. The food...is probably the worst Thai I have eaten , the spare ribs were disgusting, A real shame because the decor in the restaurant is very nice, pity the staff & food weren’t the same!!More

Felt a but rushed. Staff must have come to our table every 2 mins to see if we'd finished which was a bit annoying as restaurant only half full. Food a bit tasteless. Summer pudding was yuk. It was really dark, we couldn't read menu...and no ambiant lighting, not even a candle. I've had better.More

Amazing food, everything on the menu sounded delicious but the duck starter was particularly amazing. Service was warm and friendly and the decor is spectacular

Came here for Saturday lunch. Food was aromatic, tasty and excellent size portions. Really good selection of gluten free options as well. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Really liked the way restaurant was designed. with loads of eastern décor and friendly staff, had a pleasant Thai meal. Food was not overwhelmingly flavored and was nicely complimented by the tea.

The whole place is a car park so no problem with that. We were only visiting Saturday evening so do no know about the buffet on Sunday. However I can imagine it being excellent. Saturday lunchtime was busy when we walked in... More
