They had no record of our booking through Opentable which in fact was no problem because the restaurant was empty anyway at lunch time Saturday. We found that the website overstated the standard of food. One duck dish was mostly gelatinous fat, the fish was served cold and when we complained we were told it was because there was cold...

We arrived early evening, were greeted warmly and as we were the only customers in the restaurant, had a choice of table. Ordered jasmine tea and a bottle of water. Drinks came and it was lemon tea. They the said they didn't have jasmine tea so they finally brought green tea. Both of us chose jumbo prawn hot and sour... More

Stopped here for lunch. The restaurant was quiet when we visited, but that should not be seen as being a place "Not so good for food". We selected from the set lunch menu. It is less than £10 each with a drink too. The food was artfully presented and very tasty.

Lovely meal and very attentive staff. We both had the Thai red curry which was really flavoursome but just a little too hot for me. The only negative I could leave was the wine limited wine choice. A small selection and not the nicest Sauvignon Blanc I've ever had. Would definitely go again thought and maybe just have a beer... More

Looking for somewhere to eat in knutsford on a Saturday night I was scanning the reviews on trip advisor and noticed Mae Gaew. The reviews seemed to be either low scoring or high with no shades of grey so decided to bite the bullet and give it a try, we were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived early on a Saturday... More

My partner and I visited to try the all you can eat buffet that is advertised outside. We sat down and were given menus, we asked where the buffet was but was told they didn't do a buffet. When we tried to order a selection of starters we were told you were allowed to order a maximum of one per... More

We found ourselves in Knutsford and chose this Thai restaurant on the spur of the moment. It was a very pleasant surprise. As a frequent visitor to Thailand my expectations were high and the quality of the food here was really very good. Clearly some other reviewers did not have a similar experience so maybe things have improved. The staff... More

Very good service, very reasonable lunch, very well-cooked Thai food. Quiet place for lunch with a friend. Evening full menu.

Popped in for lunch time menu, ordered soup which was hot water with something added, had absolutely no resemblance to coconut soup. Main course yellow curry consisted of potatoes and a few slices of beef. All left over food, it tasted and looked awful. Told the waitress the food was not good and she said thank you and took my...

We booked a meal for 11 of us a week before we arrived. My youngest daughter is going travelling to Thailand and chose this restaurant for all our family to say goodbye. I don't know the name of the lady that served us but clearly she doesn't normally work there and I suspect has never worked in the business before.... More
