We have dined here before so were surprised at the change in the quality of the meals.Awful food, our stirfry was covered in thick glutinous gravy, not at all like the usual Thai food. The view from our table was out to the area where all the rubbish bins are.. Smoke was drifting into the restaurant from the people smoking... More

TBH, the service was pretty average and the food wasn't amazing. The thing that killed it for us though was people smoking at the tables in the outdoor dining area - not really my idea of ambience. So we moved inside and advised the waiter why we were doing so - he didn't care. It was, all in all, a... More

Hadn't been for a while, and they have ceased the BYO option which adds to the cost of course. Overall very busy and the food was still good, although the chicken Satay was a bit bland, but the service had slipped a little with staff hard to understand. Overall disappointed with our Thai night out.

Have been here a few times always the same. Food is usually of a good standard but service ok at best. We waited 15 mins until someone came for a drinks order and that was only after we asked them to come. We wanted our selections all at once.. a combination of entrees and a main but didn't happen. It... More

Nice interesting place to visit with an indoor outdoor flow. the food is real thai and is excellent. the service is also very good and the meals are priced right. The only issue we had is getting a craft beer, the message got lost several times but not a biggie

We were advised to try this restaurant which we did. We opted for a take away dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful when discussing the menu. To get to the restaurant you had to walk past the relatively smokey courtyard. There was a good selection of dishes on the menu. The menus were actually a bit tatty! We were satisfied... More

I have been to Keo quite a few times and the standard of food is pretty good. Probably a bit westernised but still with a Thai feel. I almost walked out due to lack of service after being seated outside with a beer and seemingly forgotten but all was saved by a very apologetic waitress and excellent service. The food... More

Keo Thai was suggested to us by a local and we're glad we did go! Food is great, service is fast. It's tucked away in a corner, away from the hustle and bustle.
