Unfortunately after 4 takeaways from tong Thai, I have had to face the realisation that this establishment should no longer be my favourite restaurant! After removing once again what can only be described as chicken flavoured leather, I as usual tried to and failed to find any hint of Basil in my chicken and Basil dish!!! The best part of... More

Visited the Tong Thai last night. Managed to get a table last minute and was told it was going to be busy. The restaurant is quite small but didn't appear overcrowded. They were down two staff members but worked really hard to make all welcome. Service was a little slow but that was expected. Really nice food and atmosphere. If... More

Two of us booked in early (7pm) last Saturday evening, this booking was on the proviso that Tong Thai could have the table back by 8.30 - we were comfortably within time as it turned out. We shared a starter platter; dumplings, prawn toast, spring rolls etc. and it was excellent, snacking on prawn crackers as we waited to be... More

This is a very small and popular restaurant, so if you want to go, book. The food is excellent, and served by lovely ladies in traditional Thai dress. A bit prices, but lovely all the same.

This is one of the best little secrets hidden in the Northamptonshire area. It's intimate, and has a great vibe, was pleasantly surprised. very much worth every penny.

Service and food was second to none, I recommend booking as Tong Thai is always busy. Can't fault the experience.

As usual food and service was excellent, we had dim sum and prawn & pork toast for starters, jungle curry, spicy seafood, a beef dish and a vegetarian one that I can't remember. The jungle curry and spicy seafood were hot as expected and were delicious. The other two dishes which weren't marked as hot were very hot which I... More

This really small restaurant is a bit of a wonder. As well as the food being great, the staff are amazing and the service quick. Have been three times and never disapointed.

On my way down to Cambridge and wanted food. I found this by luck and certainly will visit again. The service was excellent and standard of food was A1. Will definately visit again if passing.

The food is off the chart good. The service is so, so welcoming. The fact that it is tucked out of town is a bonus and the whole place is such a hidden gem...
