With a number of branches in the area, Tiien Thai has established itself as a favourite among Bournemouth’s Thai cuisine lovers, combining stylish, modern decor with Thai traditions to create a stunning setting to dine in. Located on West Cliff Road, Tiien Thai’s Westbourne branch is the perfect place for a elegant evening out or for celebrating a special occasion. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
With its dark walls and flooring crafted from exotic Merbau and Sapele woods, stylish feature lampshades, Westbourne’s Tiien Thai provides the perfect setting for a romantic date or special family meal, dimly-lit and with an abundance of candles creating a cosy ambience to dine in. Whether it's for lunch or dinner, Tiien Thai is a favourite among Bournemouth’s lovers of Southeast Asian cuisine, serving up time-honoured recipes made from scratch with the freshest ingredients. The mixed starter (a selection of spring rolls, barbecued chicken wings, chicken satay, prawn toasts and Thai fish cakes served with peanut sauce, sweet chilli sauce and cucumber salsa) is the perfect way to whet your appetite before moving on to your main.
From traditional Thai curries like the massaman, panang, and green curry to a range of soups, noodles, stir-fries, meat and seafood, the extensive menu has choices to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. Some of our favourite dishes include the fish choo chee (sea bass fillet in sweet and sour chilli garlic sauce served with crispy basil leaves), the weeping tiger (chargrilled sirloin steak on a hot platter with a special Thai chilli sauce) and the duck with tamarind sauce, and vegetarians will find plenty of options on the menu at Tiien Thai too, making it an ideal choice for a group dinner. Situated on West Cliff Road, Tiien Thai draws in diners from all over Bournemouth to its Westbourne location, for both lunch and dinner. Snag one of the best seats by booking a table in advance!
Excellent food beautifully presented and a very warm welcome. My partner and I have enjoyed dinner at this lovely restaurant several times and would highly recommend.
Excellent food and service. We would love to return when next in the area. We used our Tastecard. We had corn cakes, chicken Pad Thai and Thai beer.
Food was great, lovely personal layout, staff very friendly!! Will definitely be going again in the near future. . . . . . . .
Not a big restaurant but very nice, clean and very friendly service. The girl was wearing a Thai dress, was very friendly and efficient. The food was very nice. A couple of nice wines on the wine list. Excellent.
The atmosphere was calm & relaxed & the tables well positioned so you did not feel that other dinners were invading your space which can be the case in some restaurants when trying to have to many covers. We happened to my elderly parents with us on this occassion who need space & time to settle themselves & the staff were very friendly, helpful & accommodating. The staff were also very happy for us to sit & chat as the evening drew to a close. The food was well presented, tasty & the portions a good size. The staff assisted with suggests of different combinations within the set menus to satisfy our individual requirements especially with the hot spicer dishes. A very minor personal issue for me is food become cold before one has time to eat it especial with a mixture of dishes but appreciate this is often the case in most restaurants. Extremely pleasant evening was enjoyed by all. Well Done & Thank You We Will Be Back
In addition to the Bournemouth and Broadstone branch of Tiien Thai this Westbourne branch is a great addition. It's smaller, but very modern inside and service is personable - the lady in charge will do anything for you and is ever so friendly. We had a great meal - super hot, served within a good time and very tasty indeed. All cooked to order on the premises and you can tell with the quality of ingredients used. Good selection for dietary needs including lots of vegetarian options. I highly recommend it and personally think it's the best Thai in the area.
A beautiful restaurant, so wonderfully decorated, which only enhances the superb food and friendly staff. The authenticity was amply demonstrated by the presence of a very elderly, immaculately turned out Thai couple who had dinner there while we were and appeared thrilled. It's so easy to drive past and see it, yet because it is not in the high street, forget to visit. But remember and you will be rewarded
I would have given this a 6 as the food and service were impeccable. What lets this restaurant down is the cold temperature. Whilst eating with my coat on I kept thinking of my warm home that I had left and wishing I had got a takeaway! Being a Saturday night, the restaurant was packed so it must be even colder on a not so busy week night. Such a shame as the food was delicious. I will be back in the summer.
An excellent experience from start to dessert! The restaurant is elegant and sophisticated, the greeting warm and sincere, the menu wasn't over-long and confusing, the food was immaculately presented and the tastes buzzed every bud in the mouth. Very reasonably priced, this restaurant is highly recommended (and there is a choice of steaks and sauces for those who don't like spice).
The food and service was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed themselves, and will be recommending Tiien Thai - Westbourne to family and friends. Thank you.
