These guys need more staff, i phone ordered then went down to pick up 15mjns later. Waited 15mins while i was there. While i was waiting a table of 6 left, 3 different couples came in, didnt get served, then left. Food was average.
Get more staff, especially for a friday night

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. The food was average, but the service was just utter crap. The staff were wearing skate shoes, hanging out with their mates behind the bar and smoking outside the front door. One person was walking around in a towel. I kid you not. A towel. How trashy. It was an absolute disaster. Don't bother with this place. It's a joke.

My husband and I hadnt been to poppy thai for a few months but I was dissapointed this visit,the satay sauce had a scorched taste and we were not asked if we needed any drinks so we just had water,the young girl waiting on us was obviously learning as there were a few basic things that. Were missed out,Having said that the rest of the food was good and we will go back again and hopefully it will be all good.

Lovely restaurant! We were there with a group of whom one had a birthday, the waitress must have overheard that there was a birthday and they brought out a beautiful dessert dish after all our delicious meals. I had a chicken Pad Thai and it tasted like heaven! You get a ton of food for your money and great quality too! The staff are all friendly and not too pushy. Overall had a fab night! Would def recommend!

Our group of 6 went here for dinner the night before the Food and Wine Festival. It was fairly busy, but not over the top.
The serving staff forgot to bring our drinks over, neglected to mention they didn't have any cider in stock even though one had been ordered. We had to ask where it was. The drinks eventually reached us about 20 minutes after ordering them.
The starters were also slow to come out, and for the mains we again had to ask when they'd be arriving. It was about 50 minutes after we had ordered before all 6 of us had our food. Mine was the only dish that was really tasty - the rest were mediocre.

While they had been busy not serving us, they had also confused other table's orders and other customers were waiting for just as long as we had been for their meals also.

The restaurant itself is a cute place, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. We received better service at Blenheim KFC the next night, which is really saying something!
