Welcoming and friendly staff who will go out of their way to help. The food is good and reliable. We go there regularly when in Southampton. It covers the ground floor of a strange fantasy white building between the IoW car ferry and a sea front park. Good value for money.

Visited with a group of 20 people and so we had a set menu. The food was very good indeed, the staff a delight and helpful and we all enjoyed our evening with nearly everyone saying they would return

We booked for nearly 80 people for a Christmas Office lunch. Food delicious. Service good. Space very good and plenty of time and room to move about and talk to people other than immediate table neighbours and own office chums. A very sociable long lunch and pretty good value.

Made to feel welcome. Good ambience. Other solos as well. Very tasty food. Relaxed but efficient. Think of all the extras. I'm very pleased I left the hotel to come here!

Booked afternoon tea. Had amazing view. Tea and food high average. Service good. Felt a lack of atmosphere.

The Royal Thai Pier was the icing on the cake. Great service with minimum waiting time after ordering. Prior to that though, we had a great time on Queen Mary 2 from NYC to Soton. The sea had a fair swell on during the crossing, but there's so much to choose from below decks that it didn't spoil the crossing... More

Just came off a P&O cruise and decided to have one last good meal. Chose Kuti's and a good choice it was. Food excellent. Next time in Southampton I'll visit again.

It is very strange because the name suggest it is a Thai restaurant but the decor and the staff are Indian. But the food was authentic Thai and I think it is cooked by a Thai chef. Food was ok. It isn't cheap considering it's in Southampton and not London. May be that was the reason we were the only... More

Kuti's Royal Pier Thai must be the most attractive restaurant in Southampton.Originally the old Royal Pier Frontage, the building has been sympathetically renovated to a grand auditorium and has a lovely atmosphere.Upstairs the view across the Solent can be quite breathtaking and romantic.Downstairs the spacious area makes it ideal for special occasions.
