We love ask italian, the food is delicious, the service is fast and polite, the authentic italian feel is wonderful and the lemonade is simply heaven. Its a tad pricy so not somewhere we go often but for a special occasion its our first choice. Great menu for kids too, even my picky eater is spoilt for choice. More

Thai | Bournemouth, Bournemouth

This is the first time we had visited TIIEN THAI and it certainly will not be the last time. We went before going to a show at the BIC and the service was excellent. We had plenty of time to enjoy our food without worrying about being late for our show. The food was excellent too, fresh, well cooked and with loads of flavour. I would recommend this restaurant to others. More

Welcome a bit haphazard......no clear route from hotel to restaurant and no welcome, waited for a while for waiter to be free to welcome. Very loud 'thumpety thump' Muzak. Dark with strange blue lighting. All that said...the service was ok, the food was fine and the wine good. Final price fine.....even better with a £20 discount for a reason I couldn't be certain of!

As always the Toby lives up to expectations at all branches I have eaten at, good value well cooked food in a smart clean and tidy and warm environment. Negatives on phoning my local Toby to reserve a table was told couldn't take reservation by phone had to go online to do it, so what do customers do if no internet access, seems daft to me. Toby Cooper Dean very nice well decorated smart and tidy however the toilets put me in mind of what I would expect in a rough backstreet pub, come on Toby smarten them up they let he whole pace down More

Although the offer menu wasn’t available ,despite booking for this (we did get informed before arriving at the restaurant that the stock had run out)We were offered an alternative deal and took this as our choice.The food was excellent and the waiters etc were polite and helpful . The restaurant for an evening ambience needs an update but we appreciate it is also where you have breakfast in the hotel so probably a little difficult to do.Would still recommend the restaurant, however prices from the main menu are just a little pricey and if a pound or two was able to be taken off the prices I could see this place being so much busier .

your online booking system did not work. The restaurant manager denied that we had a booking and said we were not on his list. This made a difference as husband is diabetic so we had booked early meal. After a struggle he let us in to eat. More

Indian | Bournemouth, Bournemouth

Six of us celebrated NYE2017 here and really enjoyed our evening. The restaurant was nicely decorated with LOTS of festive lights, the food was delicious - tasty and plentiful, the prices were very reasonable - my husband and me ordered a set meal for two which included 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 pilau rice and a naan bread to share for £31 (they were happy to substitute some of the dishes). The service was excellent - the young man who was waiting on our table was fun, friendly and really added to the evening experience. The toilets could of been warmer! But I plan to visit again and would recommend this Indian restaurant. More

My boyfriend and I spent our New Years Eve here, with us possibly being the youngest ones there, the hotel catered exceptionally well for every single customer they had. we had such a warm welcoming from the moment we arrived. We had the night explained to us and we're told where everything was. The food was fantastic and the staff were a lovely bunch of people, couldn't fault anything at all throughout the whole night. Thankyou so much. More

Quick service, food very acceptable. A nice family pub, music not loud. In fact I don't know why pubs blair the music out, very unnecessary and the older generation do not go to places where it's too loud. It's nice to eat and drink in a nice environment like your Kinson Toby. More
