Great service and great food! The owner is passionate and keen to offer advice and recommendations which was appreciated by our family. Having eaten many pad Thai during travels to Thailand this was a pleasantly good experience. Duck and talapia are also to be recommended. Cannot fault anything!

I am so pleased that ' Mike P ' recognised my passion for our food on offer at Pad Thai West Malling. Both myself and all the team here work really hard to consistently produce authentic Thai cuisine. Thank you so much and we all look forward to seeing you and the family again very soon. More

The food was delicious, very much recommended a visit to this restaurant. I would recommend that they offer Thai roti bread on the menu so you can soak up the scrumptious sauces left over

Thank Hallam M
manta m, Owner at Pad Thai Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your encouraging review and to highlighting our home made curry sauces. The idea of using roti bread to soak up the ' scrumptious sauces ' is possibly on the ' to do ' list. From myself and all the team at Pad Thai West Malling Thank you More

I am no stranger to Thai restaurants or Thai food, as I have visited the country more than 10 times over the last 20 years. The restaurant is nice enough, although the lighting is poor and I struggled to see the menu, but that just might be me ! The starters is the normal range of Chinese food, which people... More

I would first like to sincerely apologise if I caused embarrassment by my observations as to Thai etiquette in regard to eating. It was never my intent to embarrass but rather to share with ' BigJacobs ' the correct method in eating Thai food. It would appear that although ' BigJacobs ' has visited Thailand on many occasions he seemed... More

I did not intend to write this review - I usually don't particularly often. But sometimes quality is outstandingly good, or in this case outstandingly poor. The quality of food is 7-8/10 as Thai restaurants go. The rice was slightly dry and the flavours were good but not excellent. However, the general service has always been quite shocking. I once...

We arrived here 6 handed and were shown upstairs to a great table - very quirky old building with lots of nooks and crannies. Good toilets - always a big tick. Excellent food and wine menu and the owner is a real character. Unfortunately one of our guests was not very well (nothing to do with the food) and our... More

No one can dispute that the food is fabulous. It was just unfortunate that we had ordered set menu A but was sent B instead. We didn't realise we had A until we were into our main course when we had beef curry instead of green curry which is what drew us to set A. When your in deep conversation... More

Excellent food. Some difficulty booking some time ago, was told that they had a few big parties coming in so almost didn't get a table. However when we got there it was so so quiet??!! Couldn't understand what was going on. The owner was surprised when I wanted to book my 7 yr old in too and she seemed to... More

I do apologise if I gave the wrong impression during our conversation. The weekend evenings at Pad Thai West Malling are very busy but usually from 7.00pm on. As a result we find that family's prefer to eat between 5.30pm when we open and 7.00pm. when the restaurant is quiet. I only mentioned the timing of MrsminxUk's booking that because... More

We booked a table for 7o' clock for two people. Food was good. Staff very young but lovely. Had starter and main but did not want dessert. Ordered coffee but before coffee was served was asked to leave table and go upstairs to the "lounge area" so that the table could be freed up for other diners, I find this... More

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your first visit to Pad Thai, but I would like to add that although it does help to turn tables by offering our upstairs lounge to have coffee or tea the main reason it is offered to our first time customers is to show the potential of the upper lounge and dining...

The food was very good & the service excellent. When I asked about the service charge & if the staff were given the additional percentage, the owner said no & was dismissive of this gesture. Clearly the owner is using the service charge as a means of extra revenue. Their prices are already very high & this is just plain... More

West Malling, widely considered the gastro-capital of the Maidstone area, offers a wide range of restaurants and Pad Thai is it’s finest South East Asian offering, tempting in diners from across the South East. One of the reasons could be the combination of olde worlde Tudor building and traditionally inviting Thai inspired décor, another could be the warm welcome and excellent service but undoubtedly the main draw would be the unsurpassed food. Created by a team with a history serving the Thai Royal family, the traditional dishes are authentic and delicious, made with excellent, fresh ingredients.
