This was our first visit to Chang Thai but definitely not our last! From the moment we arrived until we left it was fantastic. We went for the set menu which was a 3 course menu for 2 with a bottle of wine all for €50! Great value and wasn't a cheap and nasty bottle of house wine but a delicious bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. You got a choice of red or white. I went for the white and got choice of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Our waiter for the evening was a lovely chap called Darren who made sure we were well looked after and wanted for nothing which made the whole dining experience a real pleasure. We started off with spicy Thai chicken wings and a combination platter for 1 and both were delicious. For our mains we had sweet and sour chicken and a beef dish with chilli( name I can't remember but gorgeous!) all served with a choice of egg fried rice, boiled rice, noodles or chips. You also go a bowl of prawn crackers on arrival with 3 dipping sauces, peanut, plum and sweet chili. It was all rounded off with a choice of tea or coffee. All courses were good sized portions and all delicious. If you want a great food experience that doesn't cost the earth and in beautiful surroundings you just have to visit Chang Thai restaurant in Enniscorthy.

We stayed in the hotel on vacation from the USA, and ate in this restaurant on a slow Thursday evening in November. They were hosting a holiday party, but otherwise it was empty, except for one other couple. When we arrived, about an hour and a half before closing,we were offered an overly narrow table for two. As there were, however, four tables set for four, all unoccupied, we asked for one of those. When the maitre d' told us those were reserved, we resigned ourselves to the narrow table.

Between then and closing time, no additional patrons entered the restaurant. Clearly, the tables had not been reserved. He had simply not been willing to give one to us.

Before leaving at the end of the meal, I asked to speak to the manager. I politely explained our disappointment, but was told that we could not have been seated at those tables because they were "set for four." I explained, patiently, that during uncrowded times other restaurants simply remove two of the settings to accommodate a couple making such a request. Out of lame excuses, he then stated that the restaurant has a policy of not seating a couple at a table for four.

What offended me more than his dissemblig was his attitude. No expression of regret, no apology, no expression of concern at our unnecessarily being discomfited.

Recently had a family meal in Chang Thai for a birthday. The food was fantastic, dead fresh and large portions. Biggest compliments go to the waiting staff they were more than helpful when ordering giving excellent advice on courses and wines. It was a really relaxed atmosphere and will be back again.

Its a good enough establishment however I have eaten there in the recent past an I must say since they have changed the chef about a year ago the standard has significantly dropped. Standards have dropped considerably since last October. The review by Paolo Tullio they emphasise occurred a number of years ago. Its one thing to get an accolade but its entirely different to keep it. But of course its kept buy constantly paying Paolo a yearly subscription. If you want my opinion its an ok restaurant in Ennisotrthy but that's not really saying much.

Dear Eddy

Thank you for your review. The Chang Thai Restaurant has been recommended by Paolo Tullio on 3 separate occasions. Thongdao Kaewkam & Suwit Lashku Head & Sous Chef have worked in the Chang Thai for over 18 months on October 2012 Paolo Tullio ate in the Chang Thai and afterwards reviewed the Chang Thai in the Irish Independent on the 27th October with a full page outstanding writeup.

As you can see from the reviews we have received on trip advisor in 2013 the Chang Thai is worthy of such a great review.

Kind Regards,

Joe Kehoe
General Manager
