The service was polite, friendly and efficient. The restaurant is like some one's front room and small and very informal. You can see the food being cooked... More

I wont go int the long "we did this and ate that" . In brief this restaurant we could not fault in any way and can see why it gets so many excellent reviews , we had to wait two weeks before a table was available so that tells you something, and it was worth the wait. It will be... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant, where you are served authentic Thai food. Restaurant is small but perfect - you must book though as it's always very busy.

Torbay Thai is one of the excellent range of cosmopolitan eateries Preston enjoys - and my favourite. It is a small restaurant with few covers so booking is essential but that only adds to the intimate atmosphere. The staff are friendly, attentive, the food exquisite with takeaway available. There is no drinks license but BYO (at a mere £1/bottle) is... More

We love it here, can't recommend it enough - delicious food, incredible atmosphere for a restaurant that is essentially just a few tables crammed in the front of a takeaway, and an amazing owner who always comes over for a chat. Fantastic fun in a group, this tends to be our default celebration venue
