Living in rural Scotland I rarely have the chance to enjoy Thai food. We looked for a Thai restaurant and found this charming one. We were pleased to see that the restaurant gets very good business. We spent some time choosing our dinner for there are quite a few choices. I must admit that though it is perhaps boring to... More

We used to visit here often, the staff do stare a lot *(which makes eating uncomfortable)* so turning my back was my way of survival. After many visits, my partner found hair in his food, we spoke to the waitress who said we would still have to pay full price?? We paid and vowed never to return again. She knew... More

We had a nice meal , very tasty . As main course we had grilled prawns and prawn red curry. Tom yum soup as starter was a bit spicy but with lot of flavours. Service was friendly and efficient.

First time to Phetpailin and I don't think it will be the last. The quality of the food was at least as good as Try Thai just down the road and the prices are lower. Nice bonus is that it is unlicensed and they don't charge corkage so you can take exactly what you want to drink with you at... More
