Thai Terre - East Dean

Thai Terre is located opposite the village green in the picturesque South Downs village of East Dean, close to Birling Gap and three miles west of Eastbourne. At first a Thai restaurant may seem out of keeping with the flint-walled cottages and the well-kept traditional English village common, but this pairing reflects the driving principle of Thai Terre – to take the best the South Downs can provide and add an exotic twist to create something really special.

    Have eaten here before and it’s always been good but Friday was awful.It started OK but got worse when the main courses were served as they were spread over a 25 minute period.We had to eat our rice/noodle dishes before the accompanying dishes as they were getting cold.My wife’s dish arrived after everyone else had finished and it was not what she had ordered.Shame

    As a frequent customer to the restaurant I was very disappointed in the service as I brought family for a meal and they had to wait for dishes whlist most of the table had nearly finished there food. Starters family waited for and especially mains a 7 minute wait for 2 members of our table to get there mains whlist others nearly finished there meals.. very disappointing ..

    Although the service was passable, the food was of poor quality even though it was presented quite well. I did not feel I received value for money. Instead, my impression was that the restaurants using its' prime location to encourage tourists into spending their hard-earned cash with a minimum of risk as most won't be returning. In addition, there were certain 'hidden' charges that were not immediately obvious such as a GBP2.00 text charge to confirm the booking, even though it had been made direct over the telephone, as well as a 10% service charge on top of the charge for the meal. Ordinarily, I like to leave a tip but prefer this to be at the customer' discretion. Here we had no choice and left to my discretion I would have paid a 5% charge for service. It was a very disappointing experience and I would not recommend it to others. I will certainly be avoiding the place in future.

    I had never been particularly keen on Thai food and I did feel a bit disappointed that the family decided to treat me to one. I shouldn't have been concerned; the place was super, the food was exceptional and so beautifully presented. This has now become my favourite restaurant and I would be disappointed if my family never took me there again!

    We were staying at the Tiger Inn, just 25m away from the restaurant and wanted a different option for dinner. We pre-booked the table at Thai Terre and that appears to have been a good shout as the restaurant was reasonably busy whilst we were there. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced and the menu had a good variety to cater for most tastes.
