Pad Thai Restaurant

Thai



West Malling, widely considered the gastro-capital of the Maidstone area, offers a wide range of restaurants and Pad Thai is it’s finest South East Asian offering, tempting in diners from across the South East. One of the reasons could be the combination of olde worlde Tudor building and traditionally inviting Thai inspired décor, another could be the warm welcome and excellent service but undoubtedly the main draw would be the unsurpassed food. Created by a team with a history serving the Thai Royal family, the traditional dishes are authentic and delicious, made with excellent, fresh ingredients.

A friend and I are huge fans of Thai cuisine and were long overdue a catch up.
The service at Pad Thai was great and the food came out in great time. Lots of taste and we requested our curries not too spicy and they came out just right.
Would definately recommend this restaurant and will definitely be visiting again!
Thank you for a fab evening!

Birthday meal for my sons 23rd.
Outstanding food as always. Prices are a little higher than other similar places but it really is worth that little extra to get what I feel is the best.
Good service too.

Food was very nice. Think that something nicer could be put on the tables, rather than white plastic covers. Would’ve preferred to have been seated in main part of restaurant as sitting in area under the stairs felt like it was just an overflow option. Do not agree with service charge being added to the bill, this should be down to the choice of the diners if they wish to leave a tip and how much.

Fantastic food - very tasty & good selection of dishes. Lovely rooms - small with personality. We may have been unlucky but there seemed to be a couple of new waitresses - I had no issue with that but the owner's style of teaching them meant it was embarrassing to the diners to listen to it. I know it was being done with the best of intentions but perhaps be more aware of the impact it has on the diners.

Excellent food, menu B was suggested and was a good choice, the right amount of food, just has room a for coffee at the end, instead of a pudding :)

The food was very flavoursome. Good portion sizing def recommend as great variety on menu too

Sadly the service was poor
Two members of staff only serving & restaurant appeared to be over run with takeaway orders.
30 mins to be offered drinks after arrival & thats on asking
60 mins for starter too arrive after confusion by waitress / owner
Mains lovely however again had to chase
Sadly only half service charge paid due to above.

Shame & hopefully a one off service wise as would def like to eat there agai

On a very wet Friday lunchtime, as people are still getting used to being allowed out, it’s certainly no fault of the restaurant that the atmosphere was a bit thin.
And although it is very expensive, for a small provincial town with a lot of choice, if it’s Thai food you want, you’ll not find better than this.

Excellent food, waitresses not a professional as I remember. Now they are young girls where before they were professional Thai ladies in beautiful Thai dresses. The food though is an amazing standard although portions slightly small
