Friends and I decided to have Thai food as takeaway after the motorbikes. Service good. Place was pretty busy, but only took 20 minutes for our food to be ready. Food was fresh and very tasty. Would recommend.

Worst service, food and rudest staff. Would never recommend to anyone. If you are looking for good Thai food drive a little further and go to San Remo.

We were told they were busy, come back in 30 mins. We came back and half the tables were empty. My husband was served his food and they said they were out of what I ordered. By the time I got my food my husband was finished eating. Whatever it was they substituted my order with I didn't like. We... More

Cowes has a lot of good places to eat. On impulse I decided to try Thai on the Island. Order was taken quickly and service to outside table overlooking the beach was quick and efficient. The Duck Curry, which I ordered with rice, was superb. Enhanced by lychee - yum! Hose white wine was fine.

Great food but terrible service, wouldn't go back there due to how bad the service was, but we did have a nice view while we ate

Visited on a moderately busy night with the family. Guy at the counter seemed nice but was going through the motions. Lady taking orders (owner) seemed even more uninterested and was quite abrupt to anyone she took orders from. Food was average and to be honest have had a lot better for a lot less. Sorely lacking any real variety... More

A great find with friendly staff. Food tastes good. Although not a large restaurant there are tables both indoors and outside. Look forward to going back.

Thunderstorm and flash floods couldn't keep this place from filling up. Packed to the rafters and 45 min wait for tables. NOT a bad thing. We were walk-ins after all. Shows how popular this little restaurant is. With 5yo and 1yo in tow, we decided to do take-away instead. Now understand why this has the reputation for best Thai on... More
