Have eaten here several times when visiting our daughter in Southsea. We have always had an enjoyable meal and love the choices of tapas and cocktails. The menu is very clear with regard to the level of spice/heat in each dish so no eye watering surprises. Our waitress last Sunday 14th May (Rachel) was very helpful with menu suggestions and...

We decided to have a Koh Thai takeaway with the family on 19/05/17 and ordered 6 dishes... we live in Havant so had to collect. Once we got our takeaway this is then when we saw that half of our dishes were missing (1x spicy spring rolls 1x Koh duck and cucumber rolls and 1x sliced crispy beef) we also... More

We were invited to my son's birthday celebration at Koh Thai, and I was afraid I wouldn't like it as I've never enjoyed Thai food before. I needn't have worried as there was a great choice of dishes and lots that I liked. We we received a very warm welcome and pleasant service and I would recommend it to anyone.

Went to Koh Thai for an early dinner with friends. Tasty food and cocktails. Only downside is that I asked for my curry to be medium but it was, what I would consider, extra hot and I like my food spicy! A friend who doesn't like spicy food had the usual, mild version and was absolutely fine so it definitely... More

Food is really tasty, the spicy hot soup is very hot verging on vindaloo-hot but still fragrant. The Thai Red Curry is so nice I couldn't stop eating it even though I was full. The tapas looks good but not tried it yet. They also do a really good offer of 22 or 26 pounds where they ask you your... More

We came here with another couple on a Sunday evening. We have been here a couple of times before and always enjoy the food. However, our friend is a Coeliac, which means that he cant have any gluten. At the start of our meal we asked the waitress for the cider menu - they didn't have one, as noted on... More

The Thai tasting menu is a great way to sample the foods- especially in big groups. My wife and I have been here a fair few times and just can't get enough of it- especially the Crispy Beef starter, Phad Thai and Red Thai Curry mains. Expertly flavoured 'rustic street food' type dishes. So far the staff have always been... More

Lovely surroundings, welcoming staff, wonderful food and plenty of it. We chose spicy spring rolls and Thai roast pork for starters followed by a red curry and a green curry with coconut rice. My partner and I were both very impressed with whole dining experience and will be going back for dinner soon!!!
