Good service, nice staff. Go there once a year as it is expensive. Food normally to die for, but this time not as good. The ribs were lovely but the rest had something missing from the taste. Maybe they have changed the chef?

The service was excellent and the food was lovely. Can recommend, as even on a very busy Saturday evening, we didn't have to wait to be served or for our food to arrive.

The food is always simply delicious the staff extremely courteous and the cost amazingly affordable. The restaurant is always clean with beautiful floral arrangements on the table. I would recommend the Thai Marina to anybody and I have never been disappointed.

Upon entry at Thai Marina you can tell you are in for a treat! Well presented, clean, and met with a smile. This is not a Harvester or the typical restaurant with kids running a muck. This is a more 'fine dining' place. Just what we want in Eastbourne! A la carte menu, which gives a fantastic choice of Thai cuisine. Asian MANGOS!!!! These are goldust in they're rarity in the UK but Thai Marina have them for desert!!! So.. top marks given for a taste explosion and a quiet relaxed atmosphere. In my opinion this is the perfect place for couples who want a quiet place to enjoy.

Been going to this restaurant for years very upset that the food was so poor someone else went a week before and said some of there dishes weren't very good thought they must of had a bad night but when we went food was so bad I only ate rice and noodles and even they didn't taste good, very disappointed

One of our favourite lunchtime meals is Dim Sum but having recently moved home we needed to find a replacement Dim Sum Restaurant to replace our usual haunt ! We were not disappointed ! In fact it was so good we actually ordered everything twice ! The waitress was funny and friendly and laughed when she came to clear away and we ordered what we had originally ordered all over again !! Lovely food and staff ! We are fit to burst ! 🤣

Lovely food but the restaurant was full to the max by 7pm and there was 20 people waiting by 7:45 so felt rushed, friendly staff but In space off 90 mins we were checked on (chased) 13 times!

I would go back just not on a Saturday night.

2nd visit. Food was great but my meal was slightly salty. Still lovely food. Was a busy sat evening so they weren't as attentive as before but thats understandable. Felt they were a littlw unfriendly made sure we understood we were on a time limit (our table was booked) and bringing my baby daughter seemed a nuisance to them.

We had friends visiting so reserved a table for the 4 of us. Restaurant was quiet being a Sunday evening, but we still had a very good meal, as we always do at Thai Marina, and our friends really enjoyed it. The food and service were all very good, as they have been on the many times we have been before. It's also lovely to be able to walk to the restaurant without having to drive.

Loved the restaurant and the service was excellent. The soft shelled crab starter was great, done in tempura batter with a wasabi mayonnaise, very different from simply stir fried (which we ate a lot in Bangkok). The main of crispy fried pork belly was delicious and certainly left a tingle on your lips. The only let down was their Pad Thai Gai which had all the right ingredients but someone had decided to cover the noodles with some sweet chilli sauce that made it almost too sweet to actually eat. We will come back as there are loads of dishes we want to try but won’t go near the pad Thai again.

Fantastic setting by the harbour! Very noisy when we first arrived but quietened as the evening went on. Waitress very helpful. Food delicious, as was the bottle of Malbec. A great evening with a group of friends. Hopefully when we visit Eastbourne again next year for the tennis championships we shall eat at the Marina one evening.

This is our favourite restaurant. We decided to take our sons for a really special treat. They are 12 & 13 so we told them they were now old enough!
I was so disappointed to be surrounded by family with young children - all very loud. It really spoilt the evening for us and our more mature family.
The food was spectacular & the service was also good although I ordered a glass of wine to accompany my meal but it didn’t arrive until after I eaten my meal which was a shame.
