I booked this restaurant for one of my 2 nights stay in Rye. I chose it based on previous reviews I had read and was not disappointed! The 2 ladies serving were very friendly, polite and knowledgeable so they were able to help us chose some delicious starters to share and then really tasty mains. I hope to return again when next in Rye. Do go along and see for yourself.

Highly recommend! The food was delicious. Really nice atmosphere.
Much better than in St Leonards. Worth to travel from Hastings.

Great tasting thai food. All dishes were excellent. Plenty of food, friendly staff. Place was a little noisy. Cost of a bottle of wine bumped up the price £22per bottle of basic sav blanc. Otherwise really good. Will be back

Although the food was of an excellent standard and the two members of the serving staff were very pleasant there was simply not enough staff. This resulted in a lengthy wait between courses, the table not being cleared and potential customers being turned away because the overworked staff were not able to cope with the volume of customers. Perhaps the owners might like to rethink their staffing strategies. It seems a false economy to not provide a decent level of staff. We would certainly have spent more if we had not had to wait so long. The customers at the table next to ours certainly felt the same as they left after having twice unsuccessfully ordering a dessert. I felt the staff were in no way at fault and did a great job under very trying circumstances. Owners, you have good employees who deserve better support from you!

The table wasn’t ready. Tables hadn’t been cleared. One person in our party complained as chicken was ver hard. Service was slow and no where near the usual standard which is s great shame.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Glossy website, paper menu stapled together when you get there. Look passed this to the food. Some of the best Thai I’ve had. Check the dim sum and the satay on the starters, or do as we did and order 9 starters between 4! The please try the Penang curry, so flavoursome, rich with coconut, and perfect spice level. Staff are very friendly and warm, and the food is fresh and hand made.

The Thai House does a perfectly good job of catering for the local and visiting clientele but I would prefer a bit more authenticity. Food was good and portion size good also. I would recommend The Thai House to friends and anyone reading this review.

We enjoyed a fabulous experience at The Thai House in Rye - probably our best Thai meal EVER! The 2 ladies at front of house were friendly and interesting without being intrusive. The wine was delicious too. My only regret is that we live up here in Liverpool so we probably won't be visiting again 😞

We spent a really lovely evening here over the second May bank holiday. Fortunately I had booked ahead because they were full and had to turn down several drop-ins and attempted telephone bookings. It was a very busy evening, with takeaways also being made to wait slightly longer than usual, but the service was great, we didn't have to wait too long for anything, and the food was fantastic. We had to ask for the Chef to confirm what was Vegan, and he came back swiftly with 2 of the starters (corn cakes and vegetable tempura), all of the curries and a few other items that do seem veggie/vegan from a quick study of the ingredients on the menu. We were absolutely stuffed for £40! I can only apologise to the other diners for our slightly casual attire after a day's walking, when they all looked so immaculate!

We really enjoyed the visit, food excellent and the only tiny quibble would be the lady running front of house was rushed off her feet. She was brilliant but probably could have done with a little help. Overall though a lovely meal and we'd go again.

The food arrived on stone cold serving dishes. Our plates were only just about warm but we knew the food on the serving dish wouldn't stay that way for long. My husband ordered duck spring rolls but couldn't taste any duck and on opening the roll to look inside found only a small trace. When we were eating our moderately nice main course the server asked us if everything was okay and on being told no she said she was very sorry and would deduct the cost of my husband's meal from the bill. The wine we ordered had already been opened before we got it..not good. Another server told us she had also complained about the cold serving plates but nothing had been done. We were told the usual chef was away and that would account for the poorer quality food. However on checking out the server who had been so apologetic had
suddenly become very cold towards us and she left us feeling rather annoyed with her attitude.
