We went as a large party and having been many times before we were quite disappointed by the service. The food is always exceptional and I have tried many of the starters and mains and couldn't choose between them. They are all great! Spicy, fresh herbs and good ingredients mean that each dish is cooked to perfection. As a large group I can appreciate it is difficult for staff to cater for everyone's needs but the service wasn't great. A smile wouldn't have gone amiss, food arriving at the same time would have been good, drinks being brought to the table rather than sitting on the side and someone asking if we needed anything else rather than constantly trying to get the waitresses attention when something else was needed.
Hopefully this was just a bit of a blip and service will return to its usual standard.

We recently stayed at Oakley Wharf and passed the restaurant each day until we just had to try it. We were not disappointed. Set right on the harbour edge it was spacious and airy, although very busy.. We were well lokked after by the Thai ladies and local staff. Food was well presented, fresh and tasty. The restaurant had a lovely ambience. Well worth a visit if you are in Porthmadog. It appeared necessary to pre-book.

Hi, Well don't know what to say, we have been going to the restaurant for the last 4 years, it has come as a shock to see that you are leaving, don't know where we are going to eat now. The best Thai food we have ever tasted. I have to say a big thank you for all your attention every time we eat at your restaurant. My husband is Coeliac but we have never had any trouble at all with his food. Good luck with your new project and hope that one day we will be able to enjoy your food again.

We booked in advance as this is only a small restaurant of 8-12 tables. The owners are very pleasant and helpful and provide good service. It was nice to eat traditional Thai cuisine made with imported Thai ingredients where necessary, with a view of the harbour and surrounding hills from our table.
But Vegetarians need to ask what they can eat, as we were told the only curry which did not have fish paste included (even though only a very small amount) was the yellow curry - but this was deemed excellent by our daughter. I found the Chicken Satay followed by Massaman Beef Curry to be delicious and my wife and son also enjoyed their choices.
Note that the Early Bird Special (from 5-6 pm) includes steamed Jasmine Rice or Chips, which are Side Orders of the Evening Menu.
We booked for 6.15pm and the place quickly filled up, with people waiting for tables to become vacant.
There is free parking in front of Tafarn Pencei cafe bar (but there are no signs to this effect), and also at the top of the side street alongside Tafarn Pencei (again not signposted).
We enjoyed an excellent meal here at a reasonable price and wish the owners every success in their new venture when this restaurant closes at the end of October.

It was tricky to book a table at first as it's so popular in the summer holidays. When we went the food was really tasty. The waitresses dress in traditional clothes and there is a general feeling that they take pride in their restaurant.
