I will definitely go back but maybe on a Thursday when I can use my Tastecard as I went on Saturday as it does not apply.
I had an amazing meal, service was very friendly, and the atmosphere was lovely.

Eaten here a few times over the years and the food is excellent. Service is friendly and efficient. Adding a candle to my wife's dessert and singing 'Happy Birthday' to her, which some of the other people eating at the restaurant joined in with, was a really nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

Very friendly staff, excellent service. Being it new years eve, it was very busy and a bit noisy. Finding it hard to chose, we had the set menu which was a little pricey for what it was. The starter dishes were very nice, coming to the main course there was not quite enough rice and the noodles were a little overcooked. Overall it was a pleasant experience and woud go again, perhaps on a quieter night when we would have a bot more time to chose from the menu.

Dear Craig We are sorry for your experience, we do not understand why you did not raise this with the management? We cook our food freshly and it is never cold. We accept we are not perfect and things can go wrong ans expect our customers to allow us to correct our rarely error. We had 2 waiting staffs reported ill but as you can check we had about 10, 5 stars reviews. We apologize for any inconvenience your experience in Tiien had coursed you. We wish you have great year. Tiien Team

The staff are very friendly and very helpful
I will consider this to be one of the best Thai restaurants we have been in, purely for the fact of the staff and their willingness to help and offer a first class service

The food itself is incredible, the flavours of the source we had our outstanding we will return again and again thank you

We have visited this restaurant three times now and each time has been excellent. Really first rate food and especially generous helpings. Very pleasing atmosphere. And brilliant service from very friendly capable waiting staff. I like Thai food and visit a lot of Thai restaurant -- this is the best in Bournemouth.

All very good, just marked down 1 star overall as a service charge was added to the bill and not knowing I added another tip when presented with a card reader. My fault I know for not reading the bill closely.
- Update 18th December. The Tiien called me and were extremely apologetic having read my criticism. They offered to refund the extra I had mistakenly added to the bill. It was a very kind act which I refused as I felt it was almost as much my fault as theirs. All credit to them for taking the time to contact me, thank you all at Tiien Thai, I wish you all great success and will certainly be dining with you again.

We love going to Tien Thai, it's the only Thai restaurant we ever go to as we know the food, service and staff are great.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go out for a Thai meal.

Food was ok but a bit pricey, but when we booked they failed to tell us the restaurant had 3 Xmas parties also booked. Very, very loud, and we were forced to order quickly - all in all quite disappointing.

Fantastic food 😊 Service a little slow but they were very busy.
Decor let’s it down, it would make such a difference if there were curtains/blinds at the windows and some authentic Thai art work/ornaments to give it some atmosphere.
The tables were chipped, so tablecloths would have been nice too.
All in all for value for money I would recommend this restaurant 😊

Tiien Thai is our favourite Thai restaurant and we've never been disappointed with the food, it's great. The larger room can get busy so it's nice to sit in the bar section which is quieter. The staff is very attentive. We will be back. Highly recommend!

Service questionable and food served almost immediately after ordering so clearly just being kept on heat in the kitchen. Food not very aromatic. Wine was good value.

Dear Shaun Thank you for your review. Just to clarify, our food is made freshly when you order. We encourage anyone who wish to see how their food is being cooked, to ask waiting staffs to show you the kitchen, with Chinese cooker the heat intensity is very high therefore with meat being sliced thinly, the food would cook very quickly, We appreciate your custom and hope to see you back soon. best wishes Tiien Team

Very good food, outstanding service and good value. Tables a little close together though which meant our meal was affected by loud guests next to us meaning we couldn’t speak to each other easily.

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.
