Attentive and polite waitresses, excellent service and delicious food. Our company of 4 people each had different meals and all were delicious. Nice relaxed atmosphere, comfortable seating and tables. Wish I lived nearer Inverness to enjoy this restaurant more often.

The only authentic Thai restaurant in Inverness. With all our cooking staff born and brought up in Thailand, an authentic Thai Dining experience is guaranteed. Our products are either sourced locally or 6,000 miles away in Thailand. Reservations are recommended at weekends. Thai Dining is a family owned business where customer care is the number one priority. Bookings and table allocations are normally organised by local businessman & co-owner Ken who has spent over 10 years in Thailand. His wife and business partner Tan & experienced chef Phensri head up the All Thai service and cooking teams. Please note we will be closed from 23 December to 25 January inclusive to allow staff to return to Thailand to visit family and friends.
