Thai River has only just opened, just under Franwellgate Bridge and about 5m above the river. It's beautifully decorated, a bit quirky to my view but that may be to align all of the Feng Shui. Staff wonderfully welcoming and nice.
Food is really good. It isn't the same as most Thai food I've tasted, the owners say they are trying to get true Thai flavours and texture, true Thai meal experience across.
Around £22 per person for two courses (been enjoyably full ever since) including a glass of wine each

Ordered spring rolls for starters and stir fried beef in black bean sauce for main there was four spring rolls in a filo pastry basket and a bit of salad the tiniest bowl with dipping sauce in the rolls were lukewarm and tasted like something from a supermarket. The main came in a dish not very warm again and not a big portion either did not have much taste. Service was slow, the place itself is nice enough but I would not go back.

Just had a fabulous lunchtime meal at River Thai (formerly Central Thai). They have moved to new premises but still beside the river with lovely views of Durham Castle & old Framwellgate Bridge. Our starters & main course were all really lovely & well presented & the service very attentive. The price was very reasonable & we will definitely go back both for another lunchtime meal & for an evening meal. An excellent way to spend Christmas Eve.

Myself and my girlfriend went to this restaurant on a day trip to Durham. My starter and main were nice, my partners was ok, but the staff were miserable, and the place was freezing. Bill was already produced prior to us asking for it
