Excellent service through the evening. Great selection of dishes. The food was tasty and fresh and my sizzling platter was full of sizzle. Good value for money too!

Starters were amazing! Main courses were not quite so amazing as the duck and the squid were quite tough and chewy. Couldn't fault the service until we asked for the bill which took a long time to arrive and when it did there were extra drinks added to it which we had to complain about. That spoiled the whole experience. I had the air conditioning blowing on me the whole time which I could have done without. Overall though, it was an enjoyable evening and because the starters were to die for, I will visit Thai Crystal again.

Thai Crystal is a lovely cosy restaurant. Always packed which is a good sign. The food is very tasty. I had garlic and pepper fried fish with coconut rice. Absolutely delicious and the presentation was good. Definitely will be going back.

We went on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy and had a nice atmosphere. The food was very tasty, reasonably priced and no one left hungry. Staff were super friendly and attentive, although one or two eyebrows were raised on other tables for having their napkins put on their laps for them. Will definitely be returning.

The food was truly tasty, the staff courteous and happy to help. The freshness of the ingredients and the various degrees of flavours from the more delicates to the very spicy were well represented in the several dishes we ordered. Thumbs up!

The restaurant is brilliant and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was superb but we definitely ordered to much so we have learnt our lesson for next time. The staff brought out a cake that we had bought for my friends birthday and also let us out up helium balloons. I will 100% be back

A Wednesday night and a table for four needs to be booked ahead. Meal was very good - lots of exciting tastes and well presented. Thai Platter to share extremely good in terms of both value and taste. Tamarind duck very good.

Service was good and the food was lovely. The only annoyance was when we waited what felt like a very long time for our rice after our main dishes had been delivered. That aside, it was a really lovely meal

Not completely sure they had our booking, but they accommodated us without fuss. Glad we went early as there was a queue within an hour - always a good sign for a restaurant. Food excellent. Served promptly, staff very attentive.

The food was amazing. However staff could have been more informative regarding children's dishes as the mango salad ordered by a child was full of hot chillies. Food was amazing!!

Good service and friendly staff. Food came quickly, was tasty and reasonably priced. While food was tasty, I have had better. The Tom Yam Goon soup did not have the complex flavours I expected and the extremely spicy prawn dish was not spicy at all.

Great food with a good range. Slightly kitsch menus which somehow adds to the experience. Staff couldn't be more helpful and ensured a lovely evening. Best Thai restaurant in the area.

Service was very good but food just average. Certain good dishes but on balance not that impressive. Tables are a bit small which makes ordering lots of small dishes to share a bit cramped.
