We live locally and now wish we had eaten here years ago. We ate at the Thai for the first time on 10 November for our wedding anniversary. Everything at this family owned and run restaurant is perfect. The restaurant is housed in one of Harwich's ancient buildings and is decorated in a traditional style appropriate to its setting, with... More

I was really surprised when we went in and they'd put a birthday balloon and confetti on the table - a really nice touch for a birthday meal booking. We had a lovely, beautifully cooked meal which was made even better by the excellent service, beautiful china and attention to detail. I was delighted by the chocolate cake, ice-cream and... More

9 of us visited for a 50th birthday. When we arrived the table was decorated by the restaurant, a lovely touch. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant, but book up first, it's always busy.

Kicking myself not to have tried earlier!! As others say great original Thai food and service if sometimes a little chaotic always friendly and helpful. Mind you it was a windy Wednesday in November and not a spare seat in the place at 8pm - and there's over 30 of them! They keep it simple and there's lots of advice... More

I had been tipped off about this restaurant by a colleague and had been warned that you need to book in advance as it gets very busy. I can see why now. Upon booking I told the owner that I was bringing my Father for his birthday, He remembered that when we arrived. Nice choice of wines. The menu is... More

Great visit, and great food and service! Again cooked to order, so shows that everything is fresh. Busy even for a cold Tuesday night. We had 2 starters, 3 mains and 2 dessert. With drinks the bill came to £74. We love this place, as my hubby loves spicy food. Only have the jungle curry if you are very brave... More
