Wifey and I went to this place based on the exterior of the building, which is quite nice and grand. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Not many guests in the restaurant for a Thursday night, but it meant that we got our food quickly. I am not a thai-food expert, but I felt that the food was a bit... More

My lovely friends and I went to kuti's Gateway to celebrate an 80th birthday. We had fresh sandwiches, assorted finger cakes and warm scones with butter and fresh cream. The service was great and we were well looked after. Thank you for making this an occasion to remember. Kind regards. Heather, Dawn, Carmen, Marie, Lin and Lorraine.

I've eaten here many times, unfortunately I don't live local. But when ever I'm at my employers head office I make sure I pay a visit. I've spent months in Thailand, so like to think I have a pretty good idea of what authentic Thai food should taste like. Kuti's is hands down the best Thai restaurant I've eaten at... More

We booked this to entertain clients and tables of 16/17 can be difficult to manage when everyone is ordering from the menu separately. The evening went very smoothly thanks to the very organised staff who did make a single mistake and were always available to top up the drinks without being asked. The food was excellent and there was plenty... More

Kuti's Royal Pier Thai must be the most attractive restaurant in Southampton.Originally the old Royal Pier Frontage, the building has been sympathetically renovated to a grand auditorium and has a lovely atmosphere.Upstairs the view across the Solent can be quite breathtaking and romantic.Downstairs the spacious area makes it ideal for special occasions.
