“Ok but unexceptional”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Perfectly OK but no better than that. Unexceptional in every respect. Average food, average service, just another average Thai. It doesn't quite live up to the expectations of the image. And the value for money ain't that great.

“Not very inspired”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We went to Thai Edge for dinner last night and found the food uninspired and average. I had sweet and sour prawns where it tasted like plain prawns put in sweet and sour source to serve.

We should have realised it would be so uninspired when my partner asked the waitress what the best thing on the menu was and she replied Pad Thai - the most basic dish going.

In addition it was really expensive £50 for one starter, one rice and 2 main dishes!

It's a shame as we have been before and thought it was nice - we won't be returning.

“wow! Nice”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The food was excellent and the chef was very accommodating. I am diabetic so ordering food was not a problem for the restaurant, they were very attentive and most happy to serve. Very nice food I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a meal. It is about 2 minutes walk from The Bristol Hotel

“Beautiful food, exceeded expectations.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We visited on the 25th June. We came to the restaurant on recommendation from a friend and rightly so...the service was very good and the food far exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful! Would return here in a flash.

“Lovely lovely lovely”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Booked a table in the window. Staff remembered. All very helpful and lovely. Food very nice indeed. Had the king prawn curry which was to die for and the prawns were like lobsters.
