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.

I booked this restaurant to eat in after my daughter's graduation ceremony at Bournemouth University.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. We are accustomed to eating Thai food and have been to Thailand many times and found the food in the restaurant well presented and authentic.
Cannot fault anything.

Amazing food and lovely staff

Vegetable tempura was delicious as was the massaman curry.

Everyone enjoyed their meals. It wasn’t cheap but it was worth the money.

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. ☹️

Not a place I'd go back to in a hurry. A couple with no booking got seated before us and then i only got seated after asking having been told to wait at the bar. We had two salads which were swimming in hot spicy juices which made the food unedible. Too much spice even though we asked for medium hot. The service was attentive but i was glad to be out of there.

I have eaten in this restaurant on many different occasions, from Business dinner, dinner with friends and Birthdays. It is a firm favourite of mine, The staff are friendly... attentive but not imposing. A perfect balance. The food is fantastic. I was on a business meeting and my client had mcome from London and was really impressed with the food.

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.
