We've eaten Thai all over the world, including in Thailand. Our meal at Thai House Express wasn't even a pale imitation of the real thing; bland, tasteless, with no subtlety and no spice. And - note to your Chef (although judging by our meal tonight it may have been the work experience kid cooking (unsupervised) tonight) - chunks of canned... More

When I think about having food instead of cooking at home the first restaurant comes in my mind since last 7 months is Thai House Express. They serve the best Spicy fried rice and Thai Laksa. Best place for lunch and dinner. If you like spicy and delicious thai food this is the place.

I've been here many times before, and eaten pad Thai but this was the first for 2017. What I was served was a very poor imitation of the previous versions of Pad Thai, the noodles were wrong and the sauce didn't taste good at all. Can't say I'll be back in a hurry.

The family had just been wonderfully entertained by "Sister Act" at the TSB Showplace and were looking for Thai dining. We crossed the road to Thai House Express. We were most satisfied. It offered a smile, a clean, spacious dining area, a wide selection of dishes and prompt service. We sampled wontons, stuffed chicken mushrooms, satay kebabs and sweet 'n'... More

The name says it all! I am constantly surprised with how quickly my food arrives and how fresh it is. The food is always of great quality with fresh vegetables. The challenge is deciding which dish to select. If I'm hungry and I want a nutritious, tasty, very well priced meal with ultra friendly service I come here. Don't be... More

Love going to Thai House. Awesome food. The staff are helpful. And lots of people eat Thai. The vegetables are always fresh and the Roti's are to die for.
