First visit to Finale Thai, and it won't be the last. We visited on Friday 10th March with a couple of Friends and we all cleared our plates which consisted of; Starters 1 x Prawn Spring Rolls which came with salad garnish and your standard nicely decorated Carrott. These were served very hot, crispy with a lemon type sauce dip.... More

I visited with couple of friends and was very impressed. The food was wonderful: very meaty spare ribs followed by chicken masaman curry (mild but delicious) accompanied by coconut rice which was gorgeous. The whole evening was very relaxed, the service was pitched at exactly the right level, and the white/cream décor is lovely. Unfortunately we were the only customers... More

We took two very good friends for the first time and were not disappointed. Everything was brilliant from the attentive staff to the beer and especially the food. We had the upstairs to ourselves. Would highly recommend. The price reflects the quality of the food.

The place itself is fairly small with only around 18 covers. There was only 2 tables in when we were there, given the size of the place and it being quiet the service wasn't the fastest. I found the menu a little long winded, with the same dishes on multiple times throughout just with different variations of meat/vegatable fillings. We... More

I have been to Finale many times over the last year and have enjoyed each visit. The lady who works there (the owner I think) is very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant is a nice place too. I am not the most adventurous of eaters so I can only really comment on the Thai red curry, which is great. The... More

The restaurant itself is really sweet and the atmosphere was good. Unfortunately the food wasn't great. My chicken was obviously a frozen fillet and the portions were very small. Staff were lovely.

We had a meal at Finale this evening. The food was gorgeous. We hadn't booked beforehand but we're lucky enough to be seated in the upstairs dining area and had it all to ourselves so it felt like private dining. We had a sharing platter for a starter which was delicious and tasted so fresh. I had a seafood medley... More

Ate here tonight from the set menu, wasn't massively impressed by it. Starters were tasty enough, but the mains were disappointing. The red curry tasted like it was from a jar, and the portions were tiny. As a bigger eater this didn't suit me. The restaurant was very quiet which wasn't a problem in its self, but should have told... More

My husband and I recently visited Finale. Close to the town centre and tucked away but don't let this put you off.The food was very good. Excellent vegetarian choice served with quiet efficiency .I hope we will return very soon. Impressed!
