It has been quite some time since I last dined at Sema's Thai Cuisine and I wasn't disappointed upon returning. The atmosphere is relaxing and the choices should cover everyone's needs. Friendly and efficient service and easy to access.

We booked for a Friday night in December and found when we got there that there were some large parties of dinners (12 or more) already seated. Our waitress was friendly and our food came our at a leisurely pace and was very tasty.

We've been to this restaurant a few times and it has always been reasonably busy whether that is down to the food or location not sure. The food is good, the service is average, for some smiling isn't part of the job description, the décor...More

Thought we would give it another shot from my last review in 2013 as I am all about second chances..... unfortunately nothing as changed. Although the food may be passable (it's not the greatest thai food anyway) the service was once again absolutely terrible. Argumentative...More
