Lovely food, can never fault it, a bit slow sometimes with service, waited for drinks for around 15 minutes to order and then another 10-15 minutes to bring them over
Apart from that though thoroughly enjoyed and will always return for the food and ambience alone.

We've been here several times and never had a bad meal. The food is great and the service very attentive. The buffets are plentiful so don;t over order.

Gorgeous food. Table booked at 4.45pm. Noone asked for order or came to us. We had a half an hour wait and then 10% service charge added to bill

Lovely food, great sized portions so great value. Only problem was the 2 for 1 bottled beers was limited to Budweiser which is no substitute for Singha.

Amazing food! We ordered a out 9 starters between 3 people and all shared to get the most out of the experience and every dish was insanely tasty! The staff were lovely too, and very welcoming. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant itself was splendid - really loved it and can't wait to visit again soon!

So bad! Ribs had no meat on them and burnt, chicken wings burnt, crispy bean curds dry and tasteless, didn’t have main course because of how bad the starters were. Staff not bothered about how bad the food was, couldn’t wait to get take full payment. So so so bad

Absolutely amazing. Best Thai food i have had outside of Thailand. They even had Sala milk which even in Thailand is hard to find. Authentic 110%. What an amazing place. Staff are very nice too.

Nice buzzing atmosphere.
A few smiles from the waiters wouldn’t
go amiss .
Messy bar area needs attention , I don’t want to look at a bar of cleared dirty glasses while I’m dining .
Overall though , a good meal .

Biggest mistake booking this for our anniversary. Very noisy and it was very full. Nothing appealing or nice about the place inside
Just a basic restaurant
My husband had to ask for service as we needed a drink and we had been seated for over 15 minutes

I have been a long standing client of Try Thai since I found this hidden gem - it really is excellent value for money and the food is amazing. I love this place as a foodie and am loath to share it but if it brings them more custom then I am happy to support this excellent restaurant.

The service was really slow. We had to ask someone to come and take our order.

Noticed the bar area was full of dirty glasses that were collected from tables but not washed.

Food was great though.

Needs better service especially that there is an automatic 10% charge added to the bill.

In the heart of China Town, the place was easy to find and was pleasingly busy at 1845 on a Thursday Night. The menu is comprehensive but there were a lot of dishes marked as not available. The service was efficient rather than friendly and the food was delicious and well cooked with generous portions.
