“Great meal in an unhurried atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Have returned tonight from the superb Jasmine Thai. Absolutely gutted not to have visited earlier. Eight of us ate there, four of whom who are regulars and have raved repeatedly about the food. The starters were almost meals on their own, far larger than anticipated. My squid was superb, not chewy, freshly prepared and piping hot: my main course of lamb coconut curry with coconut rice was wolfed down: not necessarily with hunger, but with appreciation :-)
The only slight drawback is the restaurant is b.y.o. However, there is a Co-op seconds up the road should you come without.
Excellent range of food - please if you're in Paignton, give Jasmine's a try ...........

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

This was a return trip to the Jasmine Thai on the quirky Winner Street, Paignton. Food is memorable and excellent. Plenty to choose from at very competitive prices and you also have the experience of watching it being cooked before your very eyes. Don't forget to bring your tipple, as this is an unlicensed premises.

“Really rather good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Booked at table for seven on a Thursday night. Kinda figured best to be safe and guarantee a table. Got there and the place was empty! Picked our own table and opened the wine we brought with us (£1 per person corkage). By the time our starter had arrived the place was heaving, I think every table was full!

Food was great. Service perfectly acceptable. Heading back this week for another helping!

One thing - cash only (well, no credit cards anyway!)

“Once again an awesome meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Having eaten here before on numerous occasions we hoped that the food would still be excellent and we were not disappointed. It's so refreshing to have great freshly cooked food which tastes amazing and doesn't break the bank. The bring your own drink helps to maintain the value. Starters of chilli squid and prawn were excellent, the stir fried belly pork awesome and one of the nicest dishes that I have ever had which makes it hard to try something else, the mausiman curry (not sure if spelt right!) was authentic and really good with chicken rather than beef.
What more can I say definitely will be back again.

“Simply Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

What a culinary delight - first time at Jasmines, wont be the last. We were extremely impressed with the quality of food cooked with beautiful flavours - dont moan if you have to wait - its cooked to perfection right in front of you by a very friendly team of ladies who know exactly what they are doing! I've got a taste for satay sauce and it was no problem doing an extra side of this to have with my noodles - bring your own drinks as they are not licenced. No wonder this place was so busy with takeaway orders and seated guests midweek on a Tuesday. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Paignton.
