“Tasty Thai Delights with Superb Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Our first choice (based on TA community) was fully booked and so we went here and so glad we did. I was on a week away for work and was trying to eat out most nights to get out of the hotel for a bit in the evening. The place had some decent sized tables in for a Thursday evening and the interior decor was warm and inviting. We were seated immediately (there were 2 of us dining) and were faced with a good selection of main menu items plus set meal options (at three price points) and also another very reasonable priced set 2/3 course option... we ended up choosing from the main menu - mainly because there were several items on here I really fancied that weren't on the set meals. To start we ordered a sharing plate to share (not vegetarian option) which was absolutely superb, freshly prepared and full of fresh flavours and delicate spicing touches. For mains we ordered beef Massaman curry and a special chicken dish that the name escapes me, to acompany we had a portion of sticky rice and pad tai noodles. Everything again was cooked to perfection and deliciously tasty, not greasy, spicy but not face-melting, just really lovely. We had the obligatory Singha beers with dinner and coffees to finish which was freshly brewed. Service was very friendly and efficient, dining space was nicely presented and the toilets were clean. All in all a great experience and very recommended if visiting Bedford (where which there seems to be many many restaurants covering all cuisines for such a relatively small town). Well done - this place is great!

“Saturday disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

I ate at the Thai lagoon for the first time on August 2. I had heard and read good reviews and expected to have excellent food. However the whole experience was a let down.
First of all, the food was very average, the starters were nice enough but our main course (we were a party of 4) was delivered in 2 batches with a wait of several minutes before all of us had our food. Rice on one of the dishes was underdone and not very palatable, all in all a disappointment.
The other aspect was the atmosphere, the restaurant is very plainly decorated with hard floors and walls which in itself is fine. However when it filled up the conversation seemed very loud and it reminded me of a canteen. As you might have guessed we won't be going back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Always get our thai takeaways from here and never disappointed. Very punctual for collection though so popular, delivery takes more time.

“A hard to beat Thai and not just locally!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

I have been going to this restaurant with my better half for a few years now. The food and service never disappointed.
I travel a lot for work in UK, Europe and other odd countries. So end up eating out a lot. So much that often just enjoy home cooked food.
When going out in Bedford (being my home town) it is nearly always here.
This is one of the best Thai restaurants I have eaten in and is consistently good. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Food wise they often tweak meals to my or my partners requirements, something they always get right for us.

Well recommended...
