“Superb, tasty, authentic Thai food. Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed 7 March 2011

We have eaten at many restaurants (yes, I really should write up more reviews for TA, I know!)... and one of the most enjoyable places we have eaten has been this humble, honest family run Thai restaurant in Shanklin... What a Find!!!

The kitchen is expertly run by the lady of the family, and the front of house is run by the gent... and what a gent. Customer service is so sadly lacking in many eateries nowadays, but here it comes across as a genuine pleasure. I believe their daughter also works there too, helping in the kitchen and helping bring the food. You can sense the pride in the work, and boy can you taste the flavours in the food!!!

We have eaten at The Black Cat on each of our 5 visits to the Isle over the last 3 years now, and we are planning to return again in April this year. I will write a course-by-course review in April, but until then... please take our heartfelt recommendation and pop in to sample their wares. You will not be dissapointed.

Watch out for the chicken dishes with the Thai Basil; the beef and chilli dishes; and the authentic desserts... enjoy a bottle of Gewürztraminer... all simply delicious! :o)
