“Excellent service, lovely food”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

I was treated to a Valentine's dinner at the Tongdam restaurant. The attention to detail was evident on arrival, the beautifully refurbished restaurant was decorated for the occasion and attentive staff served us complimentary kir royale while we chose our main meal. All five courses were excellent, especially the prawn starter!

A fresh rose was presented as we finished our meal. Outstanding food and service - thank you.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Good food and service. Decorations were very attractive and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Our waiter described our chosen items from the menu for us. This was a last day of holiday lunch with my relative and we wanted somewhere special before I returned to Canada....Tongdam delivered...She will return..

“The Best Thai Food we've had”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We visited on Saturday 14th Sept whilst we were on holiday down there. We booked upon the recommendation of the owner of where we were staying and I'm glad we booked. We booked for 7:30pm and when we got there the place was very busy and people just kept coming even for takeaways. I can't remember the names of the dishes we had but for main course we had no 49 and no 51. No 49 was a beef dish in a coconut sauce, it was just divine. The beef just melted in your mouth and the sauce was light and so many fresh flavours it was amazing. No 51 was fresh Red Snapper deep fried in a red curry sauce again it was amazing. To start we had the mixed platter for two which included, Chicken satay, Thai Fishcakes, spring rolls, prawns in filo pastry, and little dim sum style parcels. The fishcakes were divine as was the Satay. The service was good. The waiting staff looked to be all local youngsters and they were very good and appeared to have been trained very well, the only thing they could do with learning is how to relax and talk to their customers, 'We don't bite'. I don't know if it was because they didn't have their I-Phones strapped to their hands and didn't know how to deal with people face to face or if it is the way they are. Some of them seemed to be surprised when we spoke to them in a friendly way. Joking apart they were good though. When we left we did leave a generous tip. The only downside were the toilets. There was only one and when you walked in it was just like someone's private bathroom and seemed to be in a state of mid decoration, the wallpaper was part stripped and the toilets were cold. Apart from this slight downside the rest of the restaurant was lovely and a very warm comfortable environment. Overall we had a fantastic meal with very good service on what was a very busy night. If we didn't live 200 miles away we would visit on a far more regular basis.
