The most authentic Thai food. Very fresh ingredients. We had Pad Thai, green curry and fried rice with prawns. So delicious we had to return for a second visit while on holiday. Clean and tidy restaurant.

The food is OK to good, depending on what you order. The money bags seemed overcooked on our Feb 2017 visit. The duck curry had only small pieces of... More

We recently visited Thai Villa twice over a weekend stay. The food was delicious and tasty. The service was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the first visit so we came along a second time the next day!

What a lovely meal & friendly staff. Our group consisted of 2 couples so we had a banquet for 4. We adjusted our desert to have Mango & Rice dish. (My choice of Thai deserts) The food was lovely, which caused us to eat too much. Would I go back here? ABSOLUTELY.
