    The service for food was ages, and no explanation given. Nobody came round asking us if we wanted more drinks. We had to ask for everything. It's a shame as we have been before, but noticed the service was non existent on our most recent visit. Can anyone recommend me an alternative?

    Seemed the staff were not interested in being there. Forgot our drinks order and eventually brought them after 30 minutes. Ordered starters and mains but never saw the main course as they “forgot to put the order through”. Offered to cook it at 22.10 by which time we were ready to leave. Such a shame as the food we did get was great but need to work on their customer service!!

    We have been using the Thai Marina for many years but when we ate there last Wednesday I was very upset and shocked by the service. We met my cousin and her husband at 1pm, we sat outside. The order was taken within 5/10 mins. The drinks arrived promptly but we waited nearly an hour for the starters to arrive, in fact my husband had to go in and remind them. The starters were delivered to us within 5 mins of him asking snd my chicken satay wasn't very hot, the starters had clearly been forgotten and sitting in the kitchen. We accept that mistakes happen, and we ate our starters, and e of us finished, but my cousin, who has injured her arm badly, was a bit slower. The older waitress came over and cleared the plates, whilst my cousin was still eating and leaving over her in the process, She took the dirty knives and forks off of the plates and put them back on thr table and told us to use again for our mains!! She then proceeded to take my cousins plate, whilst she was still eating!! My cousin told her she had not finished so the waitress stood over the table waiting for her to finish, it was unbelievable. When she hot fed up waiting she started to moved the 2 bowl of dips from the plate to the table and told my cousin she could just finish her starter without the plate as she wanted to clear it!! We obviously told her to leave my cousin alone and let her finish her starter!! I was so cross abd upset The waitress came over a bit later and stroked my arm and said sorry she didn't want me to be upset but this should never have happened in the first place, I have never come across service like this before and it saddens me as I love the restaurant. I think a glass of wine or something should gave been offered to my cousin... our whole meal was ruined

    The menu and the quality of the food is very good. There must have been a problem in the kitchen as half of our party of 6 were served with the main course, they had virtually finished when the second half of party was served. The taste of the Curry was worth wait for!

    The food was lovely. Unfortunately we didn’t get all out food but we weren’t charged for this oversight. The staff were very short, almost rude. The place is lovely though and we enjoy eating there regularly

    The restaurant rang earlier in the day questioning my booking as they had confused it with someone else’s. That made me a little concerned, but our table was ready when we arrived. It was a beautiful warm evening so we took the opportunity to dine outside. The benches and table are incredibly heavy and quite uncomfortable. Food was hot and tasty. Service a little slower than expected but the restaurant was packed, so to be expected. No frills eating outside but inside you get quality linen and heavy crystal glasses, which sets Thai Marine apart from most places. A nice evening all round.

    It's not clearly stated but you can't book an outside table. I was told I could sit inside. I said can't I sit outside, I was told they're a first come first serve basis. So whilst inside talking about where to sit someone sat outside. When I said I booked they said they had waited and you wait here, so when a table came free I took it and was shouted at by someone who was waiting for a table, I told them I did as asked, I was then ignored by the staff and manager the experience was terrible. Eventually the food came the service was poor abrupt and the food was mediocre and over priced.

    Service was terrible! We were asked three times if we had a reservation and when we placed our order 20 minutes later they told us they didn’t have one of the starters!!! It’s a shambles. No obvious manager, no stock control for the menu, no check backs. It’s chaos. First time there and would not return.

    Ok it was Sunday night but I still expect the service to be adequate, but alas it wasn’t. The food when we got it was superb, but our experience was spoilt by the poor service. We were left with a feeling of indifference, that we did not matter, that we were there to just eat and not experience all that should come with an evening out. It’s not just about the food its so so much more than that. Alas I doubt I will return anytime soon.

    Delicious food- the tamarind sea bass is particularly recommended. The service was mostly lovely, but when we first arrived I felt almost unwelcome, and if I hadn't booked would have turned around and left. This changed once we were seated.

    The over all experience was ok I find the staff aren’t very friendly like they used to be. I think maybe to many customers let in so not enough staff to give a great experience for the customer. Which is a shame as the food is excellent.

    Weather was good so able to eat outside. Used set lunch menu at £17.50 for 2 courses and included 175 glass of wine. Food selection very good. Wine could have been served colder but otherwise all was most acceptable.
