Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Another excellent meal. All staff are happy, friendly and very helpful when choosing your meal. Food is very well presented, good size portions, served hot. We always have a meal here when in Harwich, you need to book as they get very busy. Thank you...everyone :-)More

Past experience meant I was very much looking forward to our evening, and wasn't disappointed! The usual amazing service, authentic cuisine, and atmosphere made it an outstanding occasion. The whole restaurant even joined in to sing Happy Birthday" to my wife!

We unfortunately hadn't booked and they had a large party due in. However, they managed to squeeze in a table for us, but apologised that the food may be delayed, which wasn't a problem for us at all. However, we didn't have to wait too...long at all and I have to say it was the best Thai food we have ever had. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is cooked freshly to order and gorgeous!More

We have been waiting to visit TUATQ for ages having heard great reports, and we were certainly not disappointed. From the moment we stepped through the door we were made very welcome by owner, Andy. And things just got better and better. Delicious, freshly prepared...food created by the lovely Pom and expertly explained by the front of house team. We had a selection of dishes and each one was excellent. Can’t wait to visit again.More

We finally made it here - and we’re so glad that we did, as we had the best Thai meal ever. Mein host makes sure everyone is looked after, supported by the rest of his team, while his wife conjures up the most fantastic dishes....It’s clear that the locals love this place for their birthdays and celebrations, whilst also being a destination restaurant.More

We booked this restaurant for my daughter “Chloe’s” birthday treat… The restaurant was stunning with a calming ambience, just like the Thai restaurants we visited on our holiday to Thailand a couple of years back. The staff were very friendly & welcoming, the food was...amazing… we had starters… salt & pepper squid, tempura prawns - this was my choice & my goodness it was tantalisingly good!! Prawn toast & chicken satay… most of the mains were red curry’s & a doggy bag of left overs for my daughter to take home (which she forgot to pick up as we left) she was gutted when we got home!! Thank you for an amazing celebratory meal & we will definitely be returning!!More

I don't think the restaurant has a car park, but there are lots of places to park nearby. Go - you will not be disappointed, just wish we lived nearer!
