We decided to try something different for my birthday meal a couple of weeks ago and thought we should try Amazing Thai as it was local. We booked a table for 8:30 but we needn't have bothered. On arriving, we were only the second table to be seated and the others were just finishing their meal. No one turned up throughout the rest of our meal. Although busy restaurants aren't necessarily brilliant.....it does give an indication of popularity and also gives a place atmosphere.
There was music in the background, the waiter was attentive (I suppose he didn't have much else to do) and the food was ok. Having never eaten Thai food before, we went for a set menu..it was tasty and freshly cooked but I feel that it missed the mark - it was almost Chinese and almost Indian in parts but never seemed to have its own identity. Perhaps this is what Thai food is like but I have heard people rave about it so I was slightly disappointed. Next time we'll be going back to the Indian restaurant across the road.

We went for my birthday, never been before.
The tables were nicely laid with fresh crisp tablecloths. Room decorated very nice, and was nice and clean.
The food was excellent, have ate in the thai in bridport before but much prefer this.
It was a tuesday night and we were ate early but were the only ones there.
Come on more people try it, you'll like it

A good restaurant that I liked. Very well cooked food, a nice atmosphere although a non Thai waiter is unusual. Not expensive and the Beef Gaeng Massaman was extremely good. Wopuld use again if travelling through.

We have eaten here three times with family that live locally and each time the food, service and ambiance have been excellent. First, the ambiance....the restaurant is nicely decorated, very clean, beautifully laid tables and a calm atmosphere. The service, is polite, attentive and discreet. The food, however, is the highlight and was a big surprise, as we are sometimes disappointed with the quality of food in Thai restaurants. Not so here! The food tastes fresh and as though it has been prepared with care and pride. We carefully chose a range of differently spiced dishes and each one was very good indeed (and they really were different tasting....not as though they have all been done with the same sauce!). We had the mixed starter for two which on the surface seemed expensive but included 2 Spring Rolls each, 2 beef satay each, 2 chicken satay each, one large deep fried prawn each and wontons.....it was very large and filling, so after that you could easily share a main course, vegetables, rice or noodles and have had plenty to eat. We had the starters (two portions), 3 main courses, 2 rice and a vegetable and the food portion of the bill (for 4) was £60. The drinks are also reasonably priced. If you are unfamiliar with Thai food and not sure what to order, they have set menu's (starting at £17 per person) and are very helpful. We will definitely make this our destination restaurant when in the area.

A nice welcome, clean uncluttered restaurant. We had very attentive service without being obtrusive and the food was very tasty. I cannot fault this place.
