I'm sorry to say, that we had booked a table, something we were late for. Which happens. But seeing as it is Mother's Day. Would have thought they would have been very understanding as we had saved ourselves for that special place as a treat for Mother's Day. We were told we could sit, but we had to order mains... More

We have been going to Koh Thai since it has opened in Southsea and its never disappointed us. After being to thailand, I crave for good thai soup and Koh thai is the only restaurant that we can go to and feel like we are back in thailand enjoying that delicious soup. Both my husband and I feel the same.... More

We enjoyed a delightful meal at Koh Thai last night. Half of our group live on the Isle of Wight so there was a logistical juggle by our 18 year old grandson who arranged the meal. Also due to work commitments we did not eat until 8 o' clock! The charming staff took everything in their stride, including our noisy... More

Visited Koh Thai, Southsea for a friend's Birthday meal on Sat 18th March. Table was booked 2 weeks in advance, and downstairs table requested. On arrival, our table was not ready/it didn't appear our booking had been noted, and we were asked to make our way to the bar for some drinks - difficult to do, as the restaurant was... More

Hello Amanda We are so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your time with us. Firstly we would like to apologise for the delay in seating your party, the table before you were running late hence having to make you wait at the bar. We also had a couple of last minute large bookings which we had to sit down... More

A colleague and I went to the KT for dinner on a Tuesday evening and were not disappointed. The ambience is so welcoming & the KT gives that unpretentious and friendly feel from the minute you enter. The comprehensive menu would suit all tastes and the staff were very helpful. We chose the tasting menu, where the staff put together... More

A friendly waiter showed us to our table on the balcony and promptly returned with our beers. As we did not know Thai cuisine I suggested that we try their special menu at £26 each. We prefered mild spiciness and were quite delighted with the selections of the chef. A series of platters with pork, vegetables, chicken curry, duck, prawn,... More
