We really enjoyed our meal here, the staff were lovely and prices were very reasonable! I would recommend the chicken satay as a starter, definitely the best I've had!

Admittedly the plan will not be to everyone's taste: very small, hot, loud(because it's full most of the time, which is on the other hand actually a good sign), dated decor, tiny toilet. But the food...oh the glorious food! I come here every year on a business trip and have the best night out. The variety is unreal, the meals... More

A great experience, lovely people cooking and serving lovely good value for money meals. The menu is extensive for what is a small establishment with limited table space. When i went in with my friend there was no charge for bringing and opening our own bottles as they are not licensed. Quantities were very generous, served in unusualy decorative bowls... More

Torbay Thai used to be an amazing place to eat but not anymore. After eating a combination of chicken and king prawn green curry I have been awake all night with stomach cramps and diarrhoea.

Both eating in and take always are fabulous. It's a bit rough and ready, you take your own wine and can see the ladies cook , but the food is typically Thai, great squid, yellow and green currys, the chicken satay and ribs are great and our kids loved the coconut rice.
