    Some of the best points about the Rising Sun is the great food and the pub atmosphere. We got booked on both Thai food and the loyalty scheme they run so we do keep coming back! Although we had excellent service from the student who was serving us, so dynamic and engaging. The usual guy and lady were there but not as engaging, suspect down to communication barriers. We had the corner table for 2. It’s just in front of the bench a pillar and quite cramped seating. Will be returning, maybe on a quieter night.

    Not had a bad meal as food very good. Had some delays with extra food items and desert that was forgotten. Reason being that there was only one wok person on. Understandable

    A wonderful find in sleepy Thame! Beatifically cooked and presented Thai delicacies served promptly in a beautiful environment. You enter through the busy country pub, will warning smells of wood smoke and delicious food, friendly greeting at the bar, then transform through to the restaurant, like a tardis, tucked away at the back of the put. We were undecided what to choose from as didn’t want to have something they wasn’t to our taste. We decided eventually to choose from the set menu, with some small tweaks, which suited our needs impeccably. 2 glasses of Prosecco, 2 pints of Estrada and half a Guinness (it was St Patrick’s day!) came to £88. Not cheap but reasonable.

    Once again, excellent flavours and good service, however, one of our choices wasn’t available (told 5 minutes after ordering), one of 3 meals arrived a good 5 minutes before the others, and there was a 10-minute gap between 2 desserts (the latter we cancelled due to the delay). A slight disappointment on our favourite restaurant in Thame: obviously short-staffed in the kitchen.

    This was a last minute booking for us as we decided we wanted to go out for dinner for the evening, we were not left disappointed. We had such a lovely evening and was fully accommodated and well looked after. The food was so delicious and the attention to detail and presentation of the food was brilliant. The food tasted so fresh and was served warm and contained lots of flavour. I cannot fault our evening at The Rising Sun as the whole experience was so lovely and we left with our tummy’s being full of delicious, warm , flavoured food. We will be returning very soon as we are excited to try many other dishes of the very long menu.

    Very busy Friday night but everything was well organised, with good quality of service and excellent food. Live in hope that one day there will be a house red wine that’s better value for money but that’s the same wherever you go!

    I went for a vegan option with tofu that had been fried. Tofu has a very mild flavour that relies on spices or sauce to gee it up. Unfortunately the flavour of this tofu was of old cooking oil, not even fresh oil! I didn't eat much so rather an expensive dish and when mentioned the waiter didn't seem too concerned.
