“Great venue for a business dinner”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We went to Kai Thai last night for a business dinner.
There were plenty of tables available so we weren't sitting right on top of other patrons, which meant that it was easy to hold a conversation.
Because Thai food is great for sharing, it made ordering food much easier, you can take control of the ordering and have a selection of starters and mains to suit all tastes.
The food was good with the hot dishes sufficiently spicy and the milder dishes not too hot for those that didn't like chilli.
They also brought a tray of various types of chilli plus some sugar for adjusting the heat of your dishes - beware these are serious chilli's and produce exactly the right effect.
The service was prompt and unobtrusive.
Standout dishes for the evening were the Crispy Pork - Thai style and the Phad Thai.

“Food not that great”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I had the crispy duck, no salt at the table, I had to ask for it. Only saw the waiter once. The food was nothing special, I had better Thai food before.

“The real deal”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Having visited Thailand recently, and Eastern food being my all time favourite, Kai Thai NEVER disappoints. Friendly staff and menu varied and reasonably priced. Excellent

“Really good location and resturant”
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”
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. ..
