I was expecting great things from Tarn Thai and maybe even a 5 star review. It certainly looked like I was going give one out from when we walked in the door its like you are transported to Thailand (not that I have even been to Thailand). The decor was fantastic, the table and chairs were lovely, the servers pulled... More

£48 for 2 mains with rice, not even any thai crackers, £7.20 for a glass of average wine. Food was out so fast there is no way it could have been freshly prepared. My vegan main was deep fried tofu that takes a while to prepare. Came out in less than 5 minutes flat. Entire meal was over and done... More

Used to be a regular here when I lived above the restaurant about 7 years ago. Decided to go back for old times sake and was not disappointed. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and feels like a little Thai oasis in the centre of bustling Nottingham City Centre. The staff are also so courteous. However, you come to Tarn...

Chose to come here with visitors to Nottingham between Christmas and New Year. Town was quiet, but there was a nice buzz about the restaurant for early evening on a bank holiday. The service was very friendly and efficient, and the pace of the dinner was excellent. I've recently enjoyed one of the Thai street food restaurants in the area,... More

Tarn Thai is a lovely restaurant for a nice evening meal as a couple or with friends, it isn't cheap but it's worth it's money as the food is beautiful as I'm sure any Thai lover will agree.

Visited on Wednesday for our works Xmas do. Just 9 of us so we were not asked order or to pay up front. Which reading other reviews was a bonus. The restaurant was surprisingly not busy for the week before Christmas. Meal was booked for 7:30 and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. We chose one of the regular... More

Not normally a huge lover of Thai food but this was so good. Went with colleagues and friends. They have a fish pond in the bar area! The food is really good and the staff excellent.

I do love my Thai food so I can be picky about Thai restaurants. This certainly didn't disappoint. The service was excellent (with authentic high level of attentiveness), food delicious and we loved the decor and ambiance. It isn't cheap but then you get what you pay for and the portions are generous. My only criticism is that the water... More

We went this restaurant for the Christmas do meal last Friday. We had a great disappointment. The all starts tasted like from those Asia cash carry and the mains were like Chinese take away. The green curry was so watery and tasteless so we had to send it back to the kitchen but unfortunately when it returned as the same.... More
