Business overview

Thai food done right!

When we opened Twin Boys Thai Restaurant in March 2006, we had one simple aim, to provide good honest Thai food. Our experiences in many UK Thai restaurants led us to believe that there was plenty of room for improvement and we set out to make those improvements. We're happy and humbled to say that many of you have told us that we have done that.

Still a great choice

4
For various reasons we hadn't been to Twin Boys for months but our visit last night reminded us what we'd been missing. Great Thai food as good as anything you'd get up town. I can particularly recommend the chicken red curry. Delicious, Friendly service in pleasant surroundings makes it a great local choice.

Excellent food!

4
Each dish served with a smile had a delicious aroma and was bursting with exotic, fresh Thai flavors that leaves you with a kick of chili still buzzing in your mouth after each bite. Service is served with a welcoming smile at all times that reminds us that Thailand really is "the land of smiles". There is a selection of classic Thai dishes for example; pad-Thai, beef salad, green chicken curry, chicken satay, spring rolls amongst many other dishes each with their individual delicious flavors that leaves you wanting more. After, to refresh your mouth there is a broad range of ice creams including mango, coffee, strawberry and vanilla and many more. Overall, the ambience of the restaurant is an experience fulfilled with Thai culture through the various artworks inspired by Thailand, small monuments and the little details that make the whole experience worthwhile, as it offers you a taste of Thailand both in food and culture.

Terrible service

1
The restaurant is very bland and tired looking. What is even worse is the rubbish service and the tiny portions! Waitresses are rude, can't be bothered. The owner is often lurking around and amazingly has the same attitude!!!!

Pretty Thai Restaurant

4
Pretty Thai restaurant. Named Twin Boys after the owner's twin sons.

Decor, Size and Style
Romantic, exotic Thai decor. A statue just inside the doorway. And a pot of rose petals floating in water.

Table runners patterned with elephants, the Thai symbol. A painting of elephants.

Little statues everywhere - even on top of the ladies' toilet.

Napkins folded like a dinner jacket. I have this design in books on napkin folding but it takes longer and I've only ever seen it done in five star hotels for grand dinners. I think this is excellent for a local ethnic restaurant.

Menu - you can read it on their website.

Starters
I liked the mixed starter which included chicken satay with peanut sauce. This is part of the set menus and a la carte. Also several soups.

Salads
The Papaya salad, Som Tum, was very spicy. Pleasant to eat but a few moments later it feels like a sewing machine needle is racing up and down your tongue and the inside of your lips.

Main courses
Lots of chicken, or seafood. Milder than the salad we'd tried. Beatifully presented with a carrot carved like a rose. The egg fried rice was good.

Desserts
No sticky mango rice pudding. But a Thai pancake dessert listed on the menu. Not available so we had banana spring rolls.

Lots of those bought-in ice cream sundae type desserts which my companion tuts at 'not Thai at all'. I quite liked the look of coconut ie cream in a coconut shell.

Drinks
The rose wine was a Thai wine called Monsoon, a little on the dry side, quite acceptable.

Service
Anxious to please. Restaurant small enough for you to go to them if they don't come to you. Very helpful. two girl, a boy and the owner all scurrying about. We got our water on second request.

We asked for lemon grass to be added to a dish. It came up sliced. Not much lemon glass flavour but they'd made the effort.

The meal ended with a Lindt chocolate for each of us.

Obviously the balloons were for Valentine's day. I don't know whether the napkins and chocolates were special.

Booking
We phoned and the girl who answered said they were busy and asked if she could ring back. We went through the guessing game with phone numbers - she can't understand us and we can't underderstand her. She's saying tree for three. At least she sounded authentic Thai.

Location
Easy to find, near the corner with the Indian restaurant, next but one from them. Just along south of the Ruislip Manor station under the bridge near the crossroads.

Special Occasions
They have two sittings for Valentine's Night. You have to finish the early seating by 8.45 pm. Heart motifs were on the window and

Price
We shared a dessert and went without coffee. Meal for two, including a bottle of wine, under £50 including service on Valentine's night.

They also do lunch specials from £5.
