“Really good location and resturant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

This is a fairly new restaurant. Great food but need to know what you have to order. Mixed platter for starter has more calamari than anything else. The sea food plater is not good at all tasted horrible and we tried it twice on two different days. Red duck curry is spicy for those who dont like spicy. Server recomended wine is way to expensive.

“My first Thai experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Kai Thai MonteCasino was my first Thai experience and the food was truly special. My Thai cuisine virgin was broken with absolute bliss, the waitress was very attentive and the Musuman Curry is an avsolute must. My companion had drunken duck which was truly tasty. Do yourself a favour and try this place. ..

“Great food, great wine, waiters need training!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We enjoyed a very nice meal at Kai Thai in the Monte Casino complex. The food and wine were good and great value. The annoying part was that the waiters were less attentive than I would prefer and started to clear plates from the table before everyone had finished eating! Call me fussy but if it was a diner or cafe I would accept it but this was Fine Dining and needed Fine Service. I would visit again as the food was very good.

“Always good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

The food and service is always good there, special the starter platter is lovely. If you sit "outside" it will be more noisy with the sounds of the Casino.

Booking is nessesary for the Friday, Saturday.

“Great food consistently”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

We visited this restaurant at Montecasino as our usual Kai Thai in Fontainebleau was being refurbished. The franchise is one of my favourites for Thai food.
We were well-pleased with the food and overall service. The upmarket decorations and quiet ambience made for a great evening.
The owners are clearly committed to serving great food consistently. There is a great variety of dishes on offer and we always try a different one. It is satisfying that they frequently get it right when you request not to have it too hot. The portion size is good and I couldn't finish mine and got to take it home. We'll definitely return.
