Had a lovely meal here. We went during the theatre performance so it was quiet - we imagine it gets very busy before and after the theatre as it's just across the road. Friendly staff.

I have been to Leelawadee's a number of times over the past few years and it never disappoints. The duck curry is to die for. I love their wide range of starters, soups and mains. Having been to Thailand this is the closest you'll get to authentic Thai food in Soton. Can't wait for my next visit!!

We ordered two main dishes and one side dish. One main arrived with a reasonable time and other two dishes 20 minutes later. The waitress had just forgotten the rest of the order. They apologised but offered no compensation. Won't be going there again.

A group of us stopped in here based on trip advisor recommendations. Service wasn't great, there appeared to be only one waitress for everyone in the restaurant. The mixed entrees were okay, but they put some sort of coconut curry sauce all over the chicken skewers with some satay sauce in a separate bowl? At least give me the option... More

This is the first time I've had a meal at this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. It was very tranquil considering it's right next to a road & the food was fantastic! Other restaurants asked me for a deposit as we booked a table for 6 but Leelawadee never asked for one. I couldn't fault this place one bit.

Comfortable ambience, well cooked food and charming service. A perfect pre theatre venue. Unrushed and relaxing.

I come to Southampton every years and every year I must go to that restaurant! They have my favourite Thai curry (Massaman) and great starters
