The food was delicious and very fresh. It arrived in perfect time and the portion sizes were just right. Two of our party are vegetarians and with so many veggie options it was great.
The restaurant is spotlessly clean and has a nice atmosphere.
The staff were all lovely and it was the perfect meal on last night of our holiday in Bournemouth.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit next time we are in area.

We have dined here on several occasions when visiting Bournemouth for a long weekend and as usual it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the staff are very hospitable. Will definitely book again on our next trip to Bournemouth

The restaurant was chosen because of two reasons:
Location and style of food

On arrival, was a bit dubious and had a gut feeling that it wasn't going to be good.
The restaurant is looking tired and needs a revamp.
We chose a set menu and a kids menu for our granddaughter who is 5. She chose sweetcorn cakes and chicken nuggets and chips for £10. The sweetcorn cakes, she didn't like so she had some of the aromatic duck and pancakes from our starter. My husband had the cakes which were tasteless.
Next came our soup which can only be described as sour water with lemon grass and herbs with a few mushrooms floating in it. Vile. The soup was sent back and we wanted to replace with spring rolls. Not possible, we were offered a discount. In the meantime, our granddaughter's main arrived. Big pile of chips and frozen chicken nuggets. At this stage I decided enough was enough and cancelled the rest of the meal. At £25.50 per head definitely not worth it. We paid for three drinks, glass of wine, beer and apple juice, the duck and £10 kids meal , the main course was not eaten. £24 not value for money.

On arriving welcomed. Given glass of water each. Would have preferred a jug of water with ice and lemon and lime. Not long enough to chat while deciding. A bit rushed. For hot but cold plates. Had set meal Aldermaston as my friend wanted to try a mixture of flavours but did not know what to choose. Then it got very busy and noise echoed. But all in all quite a nice 2 hours

Wasn’t sure where to go, then remembered walking past Tiien Thai. Booked easily on line for the time I wanted. Greeted very politely and given a choice of table. Service was great, very friendly and the food was top class, well presented and extremely tasty. Will be going back soon.

I went for my birthday and I loved it! Never been before so was a bit apprehensive but the staff were super friendly, the food was amazing and great value for money! I’ve paid a lot more money for a lot less food in other places!
The staff found out it was my birthday and all came out and sang to me with free ice cream at the end of my meal also which I thought was a lovely gesture.
I went for the set menu with my boyfriend which was £21 ph I believe and got so much amazing food I had to bag it up and take it home with me!
5* cant wait to go back😍

We had a wonderful time at Tiien Thai.
The staff were attentive, helpful in explaining the menu and so friendly.
The menu was superb, we chose starters to share and every one of the dishes was amazing.
We then chose a main meal to share but as we each ate the first mouthful of our chosen dish there was no way that we were sharing. Three clean plates, full bellies but not feeling heavy as if over eaten. Bliss.
It was our daughters birthday and all the waiting staff came over and sang happy birthday and presented a delicious ice cream dessert.
Great atmosphere, buzzing but not loud.
Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon.

Apart from that the evening was good with tasty food and lovely drinks.

Just what we were looking for on after just arriving for a long weekend away. Friendly, attentive service, good food, and a lovely restaurant environment. My 3 year old son was tired, but so relaxed that he fell asleep on my husband’s lap.

We were taken straight to a table and given menus. The waiter came over took our drinks order. Then we were left to choose our food but we actually had to ask a waiter if we could order as they seemed very busy. The food was excellent and my Massaman curry was lovely.

I was quite unsure of how the ambience of the place was just by looking at the photos on the website and tripAdvisor and decided to give it a try since there were quiet some vegetarian options.

The initial look of the place from outside proved it can make a good first impression.
Very elegant and classy. As we entered the place, a fine young lady welcomed us with folded hands, showed us to our tables and lit a candle on the table in front of us.

Like, I expected it, there were plenty vegetarian options and we decided to go for the Vegetarian Mixed Starter for two, bowl of Tom Yam soup with vegetables, Singapore Noodles and Egg Fried Rice with Vegetables.

The Soup arrived first and was visually appealing. Lots of vegetables and the taste was delicious. Even though the soup was great, you would not miss anything by skipping this.

The Vegetarian Mixed Starter is a must try and definitely a thing I would go back for. It had a variety of starters among which, the Corn cakes were my favourite. The sauces were excellent and we asked for a second serving of those bad boys.

The Singapore Rice noodles was amazing and was loaded with Vegetables and Tofu. It had a very palatable taste and was full of flavour.

The Egg Fried Rice was simple and aromatic.If you are heavy eater, do order a curry with it.

The best was saved for last. Since it was my husband's birthday they surprised us with a complementary yet toothsome ice cream with a birthday candle and with the staff singing "happy birthday to you". The gesture was really sweet and I would recommend you to mention about the special occasion while booking a table.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to anybody celebrating a special day or just spend a pleasant sunny evening for a good starter platter.

We were expecting a really lovely Thai experience from this restaurant looking at it online & from previous reviews. Unfortunately we were a party of three & were seated next to a very large party of people with lots of children. The noise level was off the scale we couldn't hear each other so conversation was killed along with the atmosphere. The party in question were Thai I think and may be it is acceptable to shout at dinner but it ruined our experience & we left much earlier than we expected to. We had no less than 5 different waiters/waitresses who duplicated requests it was chaos!!! The food was actually ok but we would never recommend it or return due to the ambience. They need to sort out the seating of large parties next to couples & a bit of staff training is needed. The only person who gave excellent service & engaged with us was a young lad who had moved from Watford.

Everything about the evening at TIIEN THAI was just about ok to good, but not much beyond that. Little things like a lack of a smile the man on the door who showed us to our seats to the mess up over the bill pretty much summed it all up.
I thought service wise they were fine but clearly understaffed. Everything felt rushed with plates put down heavily and no real care or attention made.
The food was good, price wise was fine. Just overall a little disappointed by it all, maybe jusrt an off night.

Food was very good when it eventually arrived but the service was terrible and ridiculously slow. We gave our drinks order twice to the same person before any drinks arrived. We waited more than an hour and a half before receiving our main courses. We flagged it with a member of staff while we were there and they provided a complimentary drink. We had to ask twice for our bill when it was time to pay. We were served by three members of staff - one was friendly but the other two were very miserable. Their advice was not to order many courses if the restaurant is busy - bizarre! We have been there many times and had a good experience but this latest experience was very poor and we will not be hurrying back again.

Had a very important family dinner booked and it took 2 hours from when we sat down and ordered to get our food. I even had to ask at one point where our food was as every other table around us had ordered, eaten and left!

Once we had eaten, there was no problem bringing the bill over immediately and there was no apology or recognition of how long we had waited all evening.

I have been to this restaurant several times before and never had a problem, but I will no longer be going back.
