This is a great place to have Thai food. A welcoming host with friendly, highly efficient staff - the service is a finely honed machine. Delicious food too - the deep fried sea bream with papaya salad blew my mind. Awesome!

This is the second year we have had the pleasure to spend New Year's Eve at the Thai Up At The Quay and once again the experience was totally brilliant. Andy, Pom & team have without a doubt got it right. Service faultless, food faultless. What a great way to spend the start of 2017. This is a big heartfelt... More

Was staying in Harwich overnight and found that this restaurant was highly recommended on TripAdvisor, so decided to visit. Very glad that we did. Food was delicious and the staff friendly. Will definitely return if in the area again.
