This is the second time i have been to this resturant and this visit was just as good as the first. The staff are very friendly and well presesnted Our drinks order was taken within 2 minutes of us being seated, and our food order was taken not long after.Our starter was quikly bought to our table and hot and just the right amount for 2 people, Our mains: So Thai Chicken and weeping tiger were also quickly bought to our table and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this resturant. Definitely well worth a visit.Report this

Went this evening for Valentines meal. Waited 25 minutes before we were asked for our drinks order. Waited an hour for starter, and hour and half for main. Waiters asked on two occasion what meat was required with the order; after we had placed the order! After, politley complaining of how long we had waited for our food, I was served raw chicken! Would of been slightly forgiven if the chef had apologised personally, however, only the female member of staff aplogised numerous times. We left our main meal, paid only for our drinks and left, never to return for a meal there again. Shame as the starter atleast was very tasty.Report this

Great food !

I would agree with haarddad, we had chu chee pla,hor mok talay,chicken noodles, home made chang mai sausage, tom yum soup ( this was old traditional style made with tamarind and not from a jar like many places) all was first class and portion sizes were very generous,I have travelled extensively in Thai land and have taken many cooking courses and a master class with Sompan Nabnian so believe I am qualified and unbiased. Also I could see into the Kitchen which was immaculate and all cooks (all Thai lady’s) had hair covers. We ordered and eat more food than most people would mostly sea food , Singha beers one each and it came to £ 22.50 per head. Oh yes that tap IS really cool LOL.we will be back tooReport this
Perhaps they had forgotten to switch the fryer on

Visited last Saturday evening with a friend. Starter (Satay Gai) was only just cooked; soft and rubbery. Had my suspicions so checked the chicken pieces in my main.... raw inside!!. Sent the meals back..... waited 10 minutes for replacement. Out they came.. checked again... raw inside!! we got up and walked out . Amazing how they let it happen twice. I just hope the other diners faired better...... perhaps the pile of barf on the pavement outside should have given me a clue.Report this
pleasant evening out

The atmosphere is nice and chilled.The tables are nicely spaced apart.The chap who owns the place is friendly and welcoming.The menu is not so extensive so that it baffles you.We have eaten at Lac Thai in Crewe and Art of Siam in Newcastle under Lyme and this place is in the same league basically.Its a quality place to eat.The food is well cooked and full of flavour.I have no real criticism but I prefer my green curry hotter and missed the thai aubergines and aubergine peas but there was lots of variety of crunchy european vegetables in the sauce.I can recommend this place and will return.The main course portions are slightly bigger than average on reflection and the price is virtually identical, although one or two dishes were slighly more money than elsewhere. Overall my mark is 8/10.Report this

This restaurant serves the best Thai food I have tasted in this country and reminds me of authentic food in Thailand. We would recommend scallops, chicken satay and larb moo salad for starters and weeping tiger is a must for mains. Apple and Darren are fine hosts and we would recommend this place without reservation.Report this
The best Thai restaurant - now renamed
24/08/2008 by mumofbenjake
As the Sirocco Inn, this restaurant was the best Thai restaurant that I've eaten at throughout the country. (In case you're wondering I have eaten at more than one!) I particularly loved the vegetable tempura as a starter where the batter was lovely and light and the vegetables were still crisp and refreshing. I'd then follow it up witn either a red or yellow curry. Within the last few weeks, Sirocco Inn has been renamed (and possibly taken over by new owners or management.) It is now known as So Thai. Naturally, we had to try the new menu within a few days of it reopening. Unfortunately, we were both disappointed. The menu is much shorter than the original although it is possibly more of an authentic Thai menu. Both myself and my husband struggled ot find anything on the menu that we wanted to eat. When we did order, the food was pleasant but we probably wouldn't make an effort to go back because of the lack of choice.Report this
