We almost missed this gem - an unassuming small family run restaurant, on the first floor of a house a little back from the promenade at Penzance. So glad we tried it. As soon as we entered the restaurant we were greeted by a panoramic sea view and warm welcome and pleased to see several tables already taken. The maître de and owner invited us to take any table. We took one for four, despite there being two of us. We were immediately served complimentary prawn crackers and chilli dip. Before selecting our starter and mains, the maître de said we could have ordinary (heat) a little extra or hot. We settled for medium and he said he would bring extra spices if needed. In the event the food was perfect. The tempura prawns large and wonderfully crispy, the prawn Pad Thai one of the best eaten (generous amounts of large prawns) and the chicken curry really tasty. The pick of the day wine was cheap and cheerful and the service fast and personal. Great meal.

We are regular visitors to the Thai moon, always so welcoming, friendly and they always find room for us.

Food is always good and we have tried lots of thai restaurants but always find the thai moon the best for us.

Highly recommend but do book as get very busy.

As always a very warm welcome from the staff and proprietor of the restaurant. Recommend the duck in tamarind sauce! Very relaxed comfortable surroundings with a fabulous view of the bay. We visit regularly and highly recommend you give this restaurant a try I'm sure you'll enjoy your evening.

Right on the seafront of beautiful Penzance in Cornwall England with views over the ocean to St Michaels Mount. Ideal romantic restaurant. A very friendly family run by Aho and her English husband Irvine Moon. Wonderful hideaway serving delicious Thai food. (the Chef is Thai) with a fantastic strong following of diners who return again and again for the original Thai cuisine.
We booked several tables for a family birthday meal and were so impressed again at the level of friendliness, service and quality of food. Nothing is too much trouble and we were made to feel at home by the attentive staff. We consider this restaurant to be our favourite in the area and return time and again for our special occasions.

We live nearby but have never visited Thai Moon because the other Thai in the town was recommended by friends . We have been missing a treat!! Nice ambiance with plenty of room between tables. Friendly staff. Starters were delicious - king prawns and chicken satay, both with super dips; then we had a curry and a stir fry. The food was so fresh, tasty and full of flavour. We have booked to go again! They are closed from 1st January until Valentine's Day. Definitely recommend this restaurant to Thai lovers or anyone who wants to try the cuisine.
