Fantastic dining experience! Me and my girlfriend were 20 minutes late for our reservation and we're still greeted with a traditional Wai bow from the lovely owner. The atmosphere is warm and the decor is inviting. The food was packed full of flavour and fresh ingredients used, reasonable prices aswell. Staff were very very friendly and made you feel comfortable, definately reccomend to anybody who wants a real Thai experience!!

Great food and very good service. Only slight negative was it was very busy when we went (Saturday night) and the restaurant was very noisy . OK for us as we went as a group but not sure I’d go back for a quiet romantic meal .. at least not on a Saturday.

We enjoyed our meal but the service was pretty slow due to it being a very busy Saturday night, we felt a bit ignored we couldn’t get attention to order drinks or pay our bill. Food was very good and the staff were friendly we would go back again.

Had eaten there last year and food was amazing, so decided when visiting Bournemouth this year we would visit again. Order chicken satay which was lovely and faultless, but Prawn Pad Thai wasn't pleasant, the prawns were very overcooked and rubbery, the pad Thai consisted of a huge portion pot sticky rubbery noodles and hardly an vegetable. we were off to see show so didnt have time to raise it as we couldn't afford to wait for a replacement dish, but wouldn't go back there.

We decided to dine here after reading the other reviews here on OpenTable and it did not disappoint! We ordered the Tiien special rice without the tiger prawns (basically pineapple rice), Massaman curry with chicken, pad Thai with chicken, the mixed vegetables, and the chicken satay. We also ordered a side of sticky rice because the curry does not come with rice. All of the food was delicious! There were two of us and we are almost everything we ordered. The pineapple rice has a wonderful spice to it that builds as you eat, the pad Thai could have used a bit more spice, and everything else had a wonderful flavor. We probably won’t order the chicken satay next time. It was good, but didn’t stand out as much as the other food. The mixed vegetables are served in a really aromatic and delicious oyster broth. All of the vegetables in the dishes tasted extremely fresh and were cooked al dente - no mushy vegetables here!

We recommend going early! This place just got busier and busier as the night wore on. We had a 3 year old with us (can be a picky eater) and he ate everything and they were so kind to him! They didn’t keep us topped up on water without stopping a passing waiter and asking - minor annoyance.

But we’ll worth a visit if you’re in the area and love Thai food.

Would highly recommend. The restaurant was so stylish, service great and food amazing. Only criticism would be that despite all the staff being dressed beautifully in authentic Thai attire, the person bringing the food out of the kitchen was wearing a hoodie and tracksuit bottoms...not what you’d expect as all the other staff were dressed immaculately.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the food was very good. We chose a set menu and there was so much food! Only 2 choices for main though ... would have preferred a spicy dish as a choice too .. the choices were massaman curry or seabass. Service was very efficient and professional. Prices are typical of a restaurant in town ... you don't get much change from £100 if you include a bottle of wine.

A great restaurant serving wonderful authentic Thai food. The staff were all very welcoming and very friendly, typical of the Thai culture. My 8 year old daughters loved the Aromatic Duck pancakes from the main menu and the curry from the kids menu. The green curry was lovely as were the scallops. Rose wine was a tad on the pricey side but their house brand was a very nice substitute. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back next time we visit Bournemouth.

Restaurant was very busy which is always a good sign but I did feel the tables were a little to hemmed in, felt a bit claustrophobic. We turned up about 20 mins early, we were seated and offered drinks on arrival.
We opted for a set menu which was lovely and very plentiful, service was very good and staff very attentive
I would definitely return to this restaurant if I’m in the area again

Whilst we had an enjoyable evening we were a surprised not to be offered prawn crackers with our meal (all other tables seemed to have them) and also we were not offered the sweet menu at all. When we brought this to their attention we were offered a complimentary drink each.
All in all a little disappointing.

A fantastic meal - we went on a Sunday lunchtime only 3 other tables were filled. Brilliant service - quick food. Quality meal. Music was beautiful. Did the 241 offer - I have told everyone about it - would recommend it highly. We parked on the terrace which put our minds at ease and the whole building/restaurant is just beautiful inside and out.

Had been looking forward to going to this restaurant. We had soups as starters and then chargrilled king prawns also had chargrilled sea bass, pad Thai and coconut rice. Sadly the prawns and sea bass were both over cooked. However these items were removed from the bill without any fuss. Will try other Tiien Thai venues but unlikely to go back here. ☹️
