I have been to Finale many times over the last year and have enjoyed each visit. The lady who works there (the owner I think) is very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant is a nice place too. I am not the most adventurous of eaters so I can only really comment on the Thai red curry, which is great. The... More

The restaurant itself is really sweet and the atmosphere was good. Unfortunately the food wasn't great. My chicken was obviously a frozen fillet and the portions were very small. Staff were lovely.

We had a meal at Finale this evening. The food was gorgeous. We hadn't booked beforehand but we're lucky enough to be seated in the upstairs dining area and had it all to ourselves so it felt like private dining. We had a sharing platter for a starter which was delicious and tasted so fresh. I had a seafood medley... More

Ate here tonight from the set menu, wasn't massively impressed by it. Starters were tasty enough, but the mains were disappointing. The red curry tasted like it was from a jar, and the portions were tiny. As a bigger eater this didn't suit me. The restaurant was very quiet which wasn't a problem in its self, but should have told... More

My husband and I recently visited Finale. Close to the town centre and tucked away but don't let this put you off.The food was very good. Excellent vegetarian choice served with quiet efficiency .I hope we will return very soon. Impressed!

Myself and my partner visited this restaurant early on a Saturday evening, we hadn't reserved so we were lucky to get a table as it is a small restaurant. At first we were going to opt for the early bird set menu which is very good value but the choice is slightly limited (as you would expect for less than... More

Quite a small restaurant which gives it a lovely atmosphere. The food is the best Thai I've ever had and the hostess is perfect. I recommend this place over and over. Most recent visit was for my birthday but have been several times before and will be again.

Finale Thai is in a class by itself. This was my second visit, a group of us had dined there about a year ago. The restaurant itself is very compact and quite relaxing. Soft music, polite attention and wonderful food. There were five of us and we ordered individually. Dishes ordered ranged from sea bass, and vegetarian chili,to lamb and... More

Friends took us to this bijou restaurant in the centre of Derby which we had no knowledge of. The venue is of a modest size, but tastefully laid out with an extensive main menu and early bird options as well. The food prepared from fresh ingredients was beautifully presented, which will obviously take a little time to arrive. We all... More
