This restaurant above a pub is quite sparse and lacks atmosphere: The staff (one girl) was friendly. However the food lacked authenticity and when it said hot on the menu, the dishes were quite bland and lacked spiciness or heat. The panang curry was nothing like what you would get in Thailand. It looks like the meat or chicken was... More

Thought we would try this restaurant due to reviews however we were very disappointed. Food was lacking in flavour and spice. The Penang curry was very anemic looking with limp bits of chicken. The decor was even worse with plastic table cloths and torn chairs. Would not return.

The best thai in the south west, iv not been able to find another half as good. Really good when you are able to order the thai to the pub rather than eat in the restaurant above as its usually abit too quiet, so better atmosphere eating downstairs. The green curry is absolutely faultless.

We, (My two sisters, brother-in-law, nephew and I) visited here Friday 22-7-2016 and we were all impressed with the food. We all shared the mixed grill for starters. Which was quite filling so unfortunately I didn't quite eat all of my meal!. I had two Singha beers. There weren't hardly any people in so we got very good service. The... More

It's a sweet little upstairs restaurant that you access past the Thistle Park tavern, a gem in the heart of Plymouth that you definitely should try and discover! We have eaten here twice and each time we were bowled over by the amazing food! It's a taste sensation. Also the staff are so friendly and lovely, which ties the whole... More

After having read the reviews we decided to try out Thai in the Park after a visit to the cinema. Love Asian food ever since living there. Sadly, this did not live up to expectation. The service was very good I must say but on the food side it was a real let down. It was all incredibly bland and... More
