Food was excellent, service good, atmosphere was very nice, but when we asked for the bill, we were given someone else bill twice over!! It ended our evening and my family’s Ruby wedding Anniversary on a bad note.

Even though the food tasted nice, I feel like it was way too pricey, especially since the portion sizes were small.
The waiters/waitresses were too eager to take our plates when we had finished them as well, like they wanted us to finish up and not give us time to chill and talk.

Good food but not the best setting. More “holiday hotel” than intimate restaurant.

A very enjoyable evening meal. We visited whilst on holiday in Dorset. It was the perfect find! Would definitely visit if we were in the area again.

We come to Bournemouth only a few times a year and the one thing we do is visit Tiien. We usually get it most nights as it’s so delicious. Can’t get over the curry.

Best Thai food we've had and teh service was 11, free ice cream, brought out as we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. Can't fault this place for friendliness, prompt service and food quality :)

Have visited twice now and both times it was amazing. Staff are very friendly and go the extra mile, it was my daughters birthday and they brought ice creams out with candles in and sang to her. Very very polite staff.

Service hit and miss . Food good. Staff very friendly. Please please stop playing Celina Dion and Whitney Houston music - does not match what the restaurant is meant to be - left early as we couldn’t stand it any more

We had travelled from Norfolk and friends had travelled from Cornwall to meet for 2 days and decided that we would like to have a meal out away from the hotel. We couldn't have chosen a better dining venue that TIIEN the staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent and we all had different meals but each of us was praising what we were eating. We go to Bournemouth twice a year and will visit TIIEN again.

We visited Bournemouth for the weekend and didn’t know what to expect from this restaurant, however it was superb.
The food, staff and music were exceptional,
Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Bournemouth and very good value for money.

Lovely people and great food. Lively feel to the restaurant, but we were pretty disappointed that we were almost being rushed out by 10.15pm on Saturday night. We'd had a lovely time and the staff were very attentive, but after they asked to clear the table about 5 times before we'd finished eating, we thought we'd better just call it a day.

We had tasty, not outstanding meals, but the rice portion was a bit meagre for sharing. The surroundings and service were very pleasant and refined. Parking is a nightmare.

Really disappointed with our trip to Tiien this weekend. We arrived at 7.30pm and were seated and offered drinks right away, but the drinks didn’t arrive for 20 mins, and my pina colada was basically just pineapple juice, I only chose this drink as in the past it’s been delicious here. Our starters took almost an hour to come! We couldn’t flag down a waiter and finally After 50 mins someone came and asked what we had ordered, and then said yes it’s on it’s way, they gave us crackers and didn’t offer us drinks or anything. We got our starters and then waited another 25mins for mains. In the meantime they topped up our water glasses. The main course came out and the chicken in pad Thai was very dry, and the lamb in the massaman curry was really chewy. The whole experience was really disappointing. We don’t go out for dinner too often due financial constraints, and we had actually made a reservation elsewhere but cancelled and swapped last minute as thought TIIEN would be nicer. It was so hard to get attention of the staff, and even after it took so long to get the food no one checked it was ok. There was also a large group of noisy men who I assume where on a stag do which ruined the atmosphere. Real shame!

We like the atmosphere and food but we have always thought it is too expensive. Two of us had the Thai fish cakes to start and both thought they were rubbery and horrible. We didn’t complain because we were entertaining friends who just arrived from Canada.

Every time we go to Bournemouth we visit this restaurant . The food is delicious as always but be prepared to sit at your table awaiting your courses .. we have been there 3 times since 2 Nd week August and have waited for our starters up to 1 hour and the same with the main courses . It’s always so busy and the noise level is quite high but we know this and still go to eat there

Lovely food as always but this time it was pretty busy with lots of takeaways being carried through the restaurant and a little wait for our main meals. The restaurant can get very noisy with large groups there.

Really good Pad Thai.

Since our trip to Thailand, we have been in love with Pad Thai and so we use this as a reference to judging Thai restaurants. We were not disappointed! The dish was so tasty and fresh, I really wish we lived closer, so we could try more dishes.

I would like to see more fish options on the menu. We had some amazing fish in Thailand and we only seem to find sea-bass dishes here in the UK, which taste good but don't quite match what we ate there.
Look forward to visiting again.
