Visited here a while back with my family and it is the best thai restaurant in Southend. Delicious food, reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend this place.

We have been here many times and consistently fabulous. Well done! I like the really hot dishes having visited Thailand but many other great ones with far less chilli 😃

This must be one of the best Thai restaurants in the south of England. I travel all over the world but the food they serve at the Samurai is to die for. Fully recommend the dim sum starters and the green Thai chicken curry is...More

Samruai Thai restaurant. 'Samruai' being a traditional Thai name, is given to the head chef of this restaurant. With over 50 years of cooking experience from her alone, the authenticity and aromas of Thai food really come across amongst all of the dishes. All produce is fresh and some items are bought daily to give that extra freshness for the customers. All rice is slow cooked in a traditional Thai way before the customers arrive. Sticky rice is served in hand made Thai Lao bamboo containers, as we are trying to give a true accuracy and indication of dining in Thailand. If you are looking for authentic Thai food surrounded by handmade authentic objects then this is the place to be. From the art hanging on the walls to the cutlery on the tables, every thing here is genuine.
