Dropped into this restaurant one night between Christmas and New Year and were able to get a table ok. Trade appeared to be good with most tables being used while we were there. The restaurant is small but that gives the staff time to give you their full attention. Food was excellent off a limited menu. We had a very... More

We returned to Thai Vibe after being overseas for a while. It was a quiet winter evening but the welcome was fantastic. The service as always is welcoming and personal. The dishes are beautifully presented. The cooking quality is outstanding and authentic and we are grateful for that – many thanks. Try the fried banana dessert :D

Hubby took me here for my birthday, as I love Thai food, having lived in Thailand for 8 years. I had mixed feelings, as I have invariably been disappointed by Western Thai restaurants. I'm so glad we went, though. Host was friendly and obviously passionate about the food he serves. Restaurant was small, but very nice with spotless toilets. I... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal. The soup (chicken and coconut) was tasty and subtle. I wanted something hot as my main and the owner offered something which was not currently on the menu. It was ostrich with chilli and other ingredients and it was excellent. The owner is polite and works hard. My only suggestion is that, when busy, I... More

A group of eight friends, two of whom had travelled from Australia to visit the restaurant.... Well not really but they were so impressed with the quality of the food, the style, the chef and the owner, that they would not have missed the restaurant for anything. We were not hurried at any time during the meal. As a group... More

Not sure what to expect but what a little gem hidden away down Narrowgate in Alnwick. The restaurant is small and intimate with a log burner keeping the chill at bay. I would strongly recommend booking. The menu is not extensive but there is something for everyone. My husband loves Thai food and thinks his meal (hottest starter and hottest... More

Visited for a birthday meal. Though quiet, the atmosphere remains relaxed and the food was again excellent. A very pleasant surprise was ostrich on the menu. I opted for this and was not disappointed, absolutely stunning, as were all dishes. Great stuff. On a personal note, the restaurant has elected to go for craft beers (from Tempest) and at 3and...

Thank you for your kind words. I know that craft beer can be quite expensive - it is for me to purchase, too - but, of course, they are quality beers. I've taken account of what you said and we will offer a more commercial ale once again. I hope to see you again soon. More

William, the lovely host, provides a perfect menu & on a chilly evening, a wood burning stove throwing out the heat. The crab starters are to die for followed by luscious salmon fillets in a red curry sauce - & my husband's pad thai with king prawns is going down a treat. All washed down by a very decent bottle...

A rather suave and enigmatic host runs his establishment with great attention to detail. William's passion for good taste extends, not only to his menu, but to the accessories used in the Thai Vibe. If a restaurant owner spends hours searching for a beautifully styled terracotta water bottle, he is likely to spend hours researching a well-balanced menu. This is... More

Visited this lovely restaurant last night and will be back. The food here is really great, beautifully presented, portions just right, fabulously tasty. The wine really nice and good atmosphere, the service outstanding. I really recommend a visit.
