Took a few people out here for dinner after work, it didn't fail to impress, we ended up back there a few nights later! Pretty good service, very good food and a really nice range of options. If I lived in there area this would be on of my favourite places to go to.

I ordered the duck curry and it was absolutely wonderful. RIch, creamy and very spicy, there was too much on the plate for me to eat it all. We had a wonderful time here, and can't wait to go back.

Had the Pad Thai with tofu. A good meal, but you should choose "with vegetables" instead - when you choose tofu, that's all you get with the noodles!! Pleasant atmosphere, service and price.

Lovely family meal. Our 12 & 11 year old sons loved it as did we. Great food, service and very affordable. Great option for all diners.

Ordered a take out which wasn't worth the containers it was served in. Food tasted as if it had been cooked from frozen and apart from tasting of freezer burn, had no flavour whatsoever. Everything was covered in oil and there was not a single vegetable, apart from limp onion, to be seen in any of the dishes. The meat... More

Thai at its best. Lovely lovely staff. Fumie always looks after us. The food is divine. So fresh and well cooked. They really care about their customers. We love Merry Thai and keep returning after 7+ years now.

Just off the plane my dad and I were looking for a nice place to eat close to the hostel when we stumbled on this gem. The food was delicious, the service was great and the prices were very reasonable.

Meeting up with my longest serving friend, having recommended this place, as he had been there before. The service was immaculate, the food fresh and very tasty. Vegetarian rolls were starters, followed by ginger stir fried beef and sweet and sour prawn. We took our own wine. A very pleasant evening.

Usually takeout, really enjoyable every time. Full of flavour and the vegetables are cooked beautifully - we usually get a garlic & pepper dish, have tried a few and always been happy with our meals. Definitely recommend to others. Not a long wait and staff are friendly.

Beautiful Thai meal with smiling service from lass with good English. Quiet suitable music. We were the only dining in customers early on Saturday evening but phone ringing off hook with takeaway orders. Hubby disappointed with amount of fish he received on his dish but enjoyed what he got. Love to go back again.

Thank CFD20
