This restaurant was suggested by the owner of the B&B that we were staying in when we mentioned that we liked Thai food.

When we arrived there were only 3 other couples in the restaurant and we were sat in the corner. It took them 20 minutes to take our order. The starters then arrived quickly but the squid tempura was oily and the corn cakes were not very nice.

They then served our main course which was not very nice and they served the wrong curry to my wife., To add insult to injury my wife then found a hair in our coconut rice.

Unfortunately this is the worst thai restaurant we have ever visited.

We've been coming to this restaurant for the last 7 or 8 years, spending both our birthdays at some point and our first wedding anniversary here, we used to really enjoy it. After visiting last week we just felt it wasn't up to the high standard of previous years. The food was still reasonably good, though they seemed to have stopped placing the curries over a hot plate so they go cold very quickly and the quality of food wasn't as good as in many other Thai restaurants. It was very cold in there, maybe because it wasn't very busy, and there was no thai music playing in the background so a bit lacking in atmosphere. We'll still go back next time we're in Newquay as I hope it picks up again. My 4 star rating is really based on our other visits, i think this one would be a 3.
The name has also changed now to Phuket Thai Cuisine.

Been searching for a good Thai restaurant in Britain since our return from Oz, where they are as prevalent as Pizza Express.

Excellent service. Great, authentic Thai food (if you ask for it)(note that the menu states that dishes are cooked mild unless you ask). Good value.

Without doubt, the best Thai restaurant we have visited in England.

We have just had a takeway which was meant to receive 20% discount but because they delivered to us they don't take off the discount and added three pound for petrol so ended up costing 28 pound for a curry and rice, a beef salad and some fried prawns! Food was lovely but not impressed with the price! Won't use again as a takeway!

This is the first time we have visited here although locals. We went as a family including a 5 year old to celebrate my birthday. On arrival very please with the decor and feel of the restaurant. Drinks were ordered and delivered fine. Food order was given but it was obvious the wiatress had no idea what the food was, only numbers. The restaurant was not busy...one other table, but we then waited and waited and waited for our food. No apology was given for the wait. As you can imagine a 5 year old is now very hungry. When the food finally arrived the people presenting the food had no idea of who had ordered what dish or what the dished were only the number they were on the menu!!!!! Order was wrong with one dish missing and one dish too many......to be honest the missing meal arrived very swiftly. The food itself was good, pleny of it and lovely flavours, but the wait had been so long it was a spoilt experience. No check was done to see if everything was OK. After more than 2 hours, for main course only, we left with the little one while her parents waited and waited for the bill.
Shame the service and hence the atmosphere are so VERY poor...really non existant.
