Visited Thai Emerald on recommendation of a friend to celebrate a friends birthday, not disappointed. Food was amazing and would thoroughly recommend sharing a banquet meal. Presentation amazing and drinks reasonable. Only criticism is that service wasn't very friendly. Would definitely visit again.

We had the Banquet for two as we were celebrating, which gave lots of variety of dishes to try, and it was all delicious. Freshly cooked, looked great and tasted fantastic! The staff were really welcoming and the whole restaurant was beautifully decorated, giving the whole evening a wonderful Thai atmosphere. We enjoyed it so much we even visited the... More

Stumbled upon Thai Emerald by chance and were transported to the East. Fantastic food and service, we were taken by the decor which was welcoming and authentic. We'd certainly come back if we're in the area and couldn't recommend it enough. The pineapple rice is something to behold.

This is part of a small group - the original is in Cirencester. When they first opened, the food was not bad, for a Thai restaurant in the UK - they always westernise the food too much! It had changed and now does a really poor imitation of a proper range of Thai food - and for someone who loves 'proper' Thai, this is a real shame.... More

Saturday evening was full so if interested it might be an idea to book in advance, beautiful decorated with ornate carvings, even under the glass top table, and very clean, the staff were extremely pleasant and very well presented, fabulous ambience. Our party was of four so we had the set menus, two of 'The Grand' and two of The... More

We visited the Thai Emerald during our first evening in Cheltenham. They have your typical Thai dishes, such as Pad Thai. But the decor is unbelievable! It's worth going in just to see how they decorated the place.
