This is the second time we have eaten here and once again we weren't disappointed. They also knock off ten percent if you pay cash. There was a large selection of food to choice from and very good size portions.

We enjoy Thai food and wanted to dine before a show at the Mayflower Theatre. We tried this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. A good choice on the menu, good food and excellent service. I can see this being a regular event.

I have been here many times and I was never disappointed! I have tried many dishes but my favourite are the pad thai noodles! The service is quick and very professional. I just love it.

Been there for eat-in it was ok. Had a takeaway this time and the curry was watery and pad thai was soaked in oil and has no flavour but sweetness. Terrible quality. Will not trust them again.

My friends and I are visiting Thailand shortly so have been trying to find places with authentic Thai cuisine. This restaurant was recommended to me and certainly lived up to my expectations. The food is delicious and plentiful and our waitress was polite and attentive. We asked quite a lot of questions about Thai food and she was very helpful... More

My husband and myself went to this restaurant about one month ago, on our anniversary. We were at the receiving end of some extremely bad customer service, probably the worst that I have ever seen in my life. Firstly, they didn't understand our order correctly. Instead of the vegetarian platter, they served us a non-veg platter. My husband is allergic... More

Lovely food, well presented by charming staff. We had the Pad Thai, 2 different salads, chicken masaman and beef dish. Mixed starter was hot and tasty. I would really recommend this as a pre-theatre venue.

Discovered this little gem last year when visiting the Mayflower theater. The staff are very attentive and always smiling. The food is delicious and we have never had a bad meal. Will be back soon!

With a lot of Thai restaurants in the Southampton area To choose from Leelawadee didn't stand out amongst the crowd, however the food was nice and the service very friendly (however a bit slow). We found the food needed spicing up a bit and the prices were far too high for what was ordered - there were two of us... More

After visit to Mayflower Theatre arriving at 10pm which is too late at most restaurants in town. Delightful and friendly and helpful staff. Served delicious food and drinks at reasonable prices. We didn't feel rushed although restaurant closed at 10.30pm. We shall return there the next time we are at the Mayflower (we don't live in Southampton otherwise we'd go... More
