We have been to this place numerous times and happen to also order a tofu red curry and tofu chilli paste and cashew stir fry.... Just awesome... Their Thai style is really hot and hits the spot of chilli lovers, like my husband and I.

Nice outdoor seating for those windless summer's evenings. The thai green curry did not disappoint. Memories of visits to Thailand came flooding back. We would definitely recommend Thai World for authentic Thai food. Ignore the outdated decor. The food is well priced and tasty!
