Great food but almost too attentive staff. Jumping up whenever you put your knife and fork down to take your plate away. They need to be more relaxed and allow people to enjoy the food and atmosphere and it would be a better dining experience

The best Thai I've ever tasted and I've been to a few. I can't have enough. If I could I moved in the restaurant just to eat their food every day. I don't think I could get ever tired of it.
Good service too. Nice people and quick.

We went for a birthday meal with family. Had a lovely time, food was spot on as always!
Service was a little slow at times, we had to ask for drinks a couple of times when we had empty glasses. But they did a lovely rendition of ‘happy birthday’ for us as a surprise, with some ice cream cups which was a nice touch.
All in all, a great place and will continue to keep going back!

Tiien Bournemouth is something of a hidden gem. It's well out of the centre of town so you probably wouldn't come across it by chance unless you happen to be staying at one of the many hotels nearby. (It's close to the BIC, though, so might be good for a pre-/post-show meal.)

The interior is modern but comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive. Service was quick when I visited, although it wasn't at "peak time" so they weren't packed-out. The main menu is wide-ranging and includes both "old favourites" like Thai Red Curry and dishes that I haven't seen elsewhere. The dessert menu is a little disappointing after this, being mainly the typical range of ice-cream concoctions (although they do have banana fritters and pineapple fritters), but if you go to town on the starter and main course, this may not matter too much anyway!

There are two other branches - Westbourne (which is fairly close to the Bournemouth branch) and Broadstone (closer to Poole) - so if you can't get a table at Bournemouth, it's worth trying one of the others (and the parking might be cheaper and easier).

Absolutely marvellous. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. Thoroughly recommend. They have two areas either side of the entrance. They had a large group one side partying. We were asked if we would prefer lively or quiet. We chose quiet and thought that was brilliant having a choice. We were on holiday - so wish this restaurant was in our home town.

Saturday night is a very busy one for them. We were greeted beautifully and they dealt with our food allergies very well. Our starters, main courses and drinks all arrived promptly and were all delicious. Then we were forgotten. It took almost an hour to get dessert (banana fritters) which were ok but not as good as the rest of the meal. We would definitely go again but get dessert elsewhere.

It’s about 2 years since we last visited Bournemouth but when we knew we were going again we made a point of booking TIIEN THAI because we really enjoyed it the first time. The food didn’t disappoint . We particularly liked the option to choose medium or hot on some of the dishes - that was something we couldn’t remember from our first visit
