  • So pleased to have my favourite restaurant for over a decade reopen in stunning new premises. A warm welcome and delicious food as always. Even my very picky child said his fish fingers and fries were awesome. My green curry was exquisite. All the best for the future and pleased to have you back
  • We used to go when it was central Thai all the time even better now ! Food was stunning I opted for fish cakes for a starter and pat Thai for my main both stunning ! Lovely waiters and waitresses and the manager is spot on ! We will defiantly be back and will recommend !!! Perfect location and stunning views ! Had lovely night
  • Couldn't fault the place at all Extremely clean (brand new) restaurant Greeted by friendly staff Portions are really filling Price is reasonable me and my partner paid £42 for 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 pint and a soft drink Overall think the place is amazing and we'll definitely be coming back
  • I go to Thai restaurants on a regular basis and have to say this is up there with the best I've had! All the food was amazing, I'll definitely be coming back hear very soon!
  • This place only opened in December, replacing Central Thai. We gave it a month to settle in and visited on a Wednesday evening. There were plenty of people in, considering it was a midweek night. The decor is modern and airy with lovely views of the river, bridge and castle. My husband and I were seated straight away by a friendly lady. The menu is different to the usual Thai food, using fresh, unusual ingredients. Both our dishes were exquisite, being full of flavour, without being spicy, though there were curries available. The service was a little slow, there being only two servers at the time. Also at the moment, works are still ongoing outside as part of a large building project...a little off-putting! Once finished, however, Thai River is in a beautiful spot. We will definitely return!
