I love it here, just ordered a takeaway for this evening, I have been using this takeaway since I was 16 I'm now 28. It's always lovely food, the ladies (think the owners family run business) are always very sweet. The chicken skewers are so delicious. Everything is so fresh and tastes homemade. The restaurant is only small which can't... More

I continually come back to this place, again and again, it is the best Thai I have ever had. BYOB which means £1 per bottle, they serve soft drinks, just no alcohol. The women that work here are so great, welcoming, warm and caring! They make the whole experience so much better. There is a minimum of £10 per person,... More

As a family we always come here to celebrate birthdays. It's such a lovely, welcoming and friendly environment. The food is amazing, fresh, tasty and a large amount! The service is tremendous and the small proximity of the environment makes it feel more homely than a restaurant, you really appreciate your company more due to the close contact. I can't... More

By the end of the evening we were the last customers - the staff were sat at a table eating their supper and the cook was clearing up in the kitchen. We had good-natured conversation that made us feel as if we were part of a group of family and friends. We ordered several different dishes and tried each others.... More

Don't usually write Trip Advisor Comments but Torbay Thai is absolutely Excellent. Food Excellent, Service Excellent, Staff Excellent! Chicken Satay is a recommend for sure. Overall very impressed with Torbay Thai and think you'd be stupid not to visit them, I can assure you that you wont be disappointed :D

We really enjoyed our meal here, the staff were lovely and prices were very reasonable! I would recommend the chicken satay as a starter, definitely the best I've had!

Admittedly the plan will not be to everyone's taste: very small, hot, loud(because it's full most of the time, which is on the other hand actually a good sign), dated decor, tiny toilet. But the food...oh the glorious food! I come here every year on a business trip and have the best night out. The variety is unreal, the meals... More

A great experience, lovely people cooking and serving lovely good value for money meals. The menu is extensive for what is a small establishment with limited table space. When i went in with my friend there was no charge for bringing and opening our own bottles as they are not licensed. Quantities were very generous, served in unusualy decorative bowls... More
