Awarded extensive accolades including 2 AA Rosettes, The Thai House Restaurant serves up an eclectic array of aromatic and exotic Thai cuisine. Established since 1985, Harden's Food Guide recommends The Thai House as one of Cardiff's very best.

Using the finest locally sourced ingredients, the imaginative Thai House menu includes tantalising dishes like succulent slices of flash-fried Welsh lamb with a host of colourful vegetables, Thai basil and a splash of Welsh Whisky, or tender marinated beef with a hint of star anise, piled high on a bed of morning glory. Thai House vegetarian options include crispy tempura, a medley of vegetables and a rich plum sauce.

Recognised as the first Thai restaurant in Wales, the waiting staff sport traditional South East Asian attire for an authentic touch. The décor of Thai House Cardiff is an authentic blend of earthy colours, fresh flowers and elegantly dressed tables. The Thai House also boasts an accomplished wine and champagne list.

Airy and spacious, The Thai House Restaurant is only a 2-minute walk from Cardiff Queen Street Rail Station.

    Fantastic service, great food and atmosphere. Had a Valentine's set menu which was a good amount of food for the price and quality.

    The restaurant itself is very elegant and very well put together. It has a warm romantic spacious feel to the place, the music is very quiet so you are able to hear people near you eating depending on which table you were given.

    The Service was very hit and miss. Some of the staff were friendly enough and attentive enough, whereas some of the other staff were very rude and did not acknowledge you when you thanked or spoke to them ( Possibly a language barrier ) we were left waiting for 15 minutes after given the bill, which was frustrating so we went to the bar to pay but were told to sit down again only to wait a further 5/10 minutes.
    The staff seemed to rush us when we were eating as they were adamant to take our plates even when we still had food left so they were turned away.

    The food itself was a solid 7/10 for Thai food.
    The flavours and textures were there and the fragrances were there. But the presentation was lacking but thats neither here or there with this type of cuisine.
    The meat was cooked to absolute perfection nothing was burned or undercooked it was a very delightful meal my only issue was with dessert as there were not many choices at all and with the choices they were not very adventurous... although the coconut cake was lucious.

    Again the visit was a 7/10 because of the food and decor and the traditional dress.
    The Service does leave a lot to be desired.

    Excellent food, service a bit slow and had to wait for drinks, menu etc staff didn’t seem to be aware and had to be asked for menus

    What a wonderful meal in lovely surroundings. We had gone out to celebrate our anniversary and the setting, and food, was perfect for our special occasion.

    I am not usually one to complain as i've worked in the industry but we booked a table for 4, two of us arrived and waited until the other two arrived to decide on bottle of wine etc. They sat down and within seconds the starter platter was served before we had even explained the menu to them and before we even had a drink. The food itself was nice but there was far too little of it and the overall experience was very much treated as a speed date, no time to enjoy the food and company. We eat out at least once a week if not more often and were really looking forward to this having eaten at the Thai House a few years ago but I was really quite disappointed, rather than use it as a chance to showcase their restaurant on an otherwise quiet night we were rushed from start to finish and went home peckish.
