Food always impresses, prices don't appear cheap on the menu but it's always good value for money considering the quality and portion sizes. Definitely recommend :-)

Koh Thai has a great reputation locally. For my visit, it massively failed to to live up to the hype. We had spicy thai soup to start. All of the ingredients listed in the menu were present but they seemed to be fighting with each other and the overall impression was not good. For main we had spicy noodles with... More

Ate here on a few occasions whilst I was on business down in Bournemouth. Being half Thai I've been brought up on Thai food all my life and know a thing or two about Thai food. For me the names of the dishes on the menu could of been more authentic instead of the rather bland souping Spicy Thai Soup,... More

I visited the Bournemouth branch to celebrate my friend's birthday. I love Thai food so was really looking forward to eating here, as I've heard great things about Koh Thai, but was disappointed on my visit. The place is very popular and very noisy! It was hard to keep hear people talking and it there wasn't much room for privacy... More

Table x 4 . All good news. Slick service despite size & volume of trade - great atmosphere - good buzz about the place. Great menu selection with some alternative portion sizes ! ( i.e.- tapas vs main course ). Pad Thai marvellous. Food quality , taste & presentation spot on. Team members know there job & deliver to time... More

We dined as a group for a friend's birthday. Our waitress was quite clearly upset that some of us wished to order tapas and other starters/mains. Despite us explaining that the only food that we were especially concerned about was for the only child in the group who had some learning difficulties, his food was delivered a full 15 minutes...

I've wanted to visit Koh Thai for some time so decided going for my birthday was a good excuse. It's not a place I would visit very often as it's not cheap but I definitely think you get what you pay for. The service was great - thank you to the waitress who served us. She was very friendly, chatty... More

We have visited this place with my friends, the lady who served us called Sharon, she is a star, with such a lovely manner. Staff has been so nice and welcoming and the food has been very good. We will definitely go back again. You have made our night so special.
