Dined in now and had takeaway twice in recent times. With a plethora of good Thai in close proximity I think this may be the best. Tough call cos all are nearby are very good but Thai Chaiyo appears to have the most extensive menu for choice and duck which is a favorite for me is on offer as an... More

The evening started well with a nice greeting and a quick seat. The restaurant was nearly empty 830 on a Saturday night which should have been a warning. We ordered Pad Thai and a vegetable rice dish. Pad Thai was gluggy and lacked flavour with the vegetable rice dish served burnt!! All you could taste was burnt rice and veggies!... More

I really like dining at Thai Chaiyo. The food is really nice and fresh. They have interesting specials too which is nice to see some different options. The food never takes too long to come out but is also nice and hot. The waitresses are always friendly and nothing is too much to ask. If you're after a really nice... More

Great service, delicious food. Everything came out quickly. It was a Tuesday night and we were the only ones in there. Will definitely be back.

A very surly greeting! Thought we had the wrong night. We were a group of four with only four other people in the restaurant. Despite this we had to call out to the waitress in the kitchen after half an hour to place our order. Water glasses on the table but no water offered. NO atmosphere at all. Food was... More

Went to the restaurant, picked up take away, there was a foreign object in the food, the next time we went back the main meal was supposed to be complimentary due to the FOD and all staff argued with me, the new owners are struggling, the food isn't as tasty and the theme/atmosphere where the girls would wear traditional Thai...

Waited one and a half hours to get one dish but no rice on the table of ten people. Then waited and waited for more dishes we ordered to arrive one by one. Meanwhile many orders of takeaway going out the door. It use to be great service but would not recommend it now. It is a pity because the... More

I usually do not write reviews but this was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. The fried rice was burnt, I know hard to burn rice but it was and so were the veggies. I asked for no onion, it was made clear, so as you would expected they loaded it up with onion!... More
