Nottingham has a wide variety of restaurants and a few Thai ones too, however; none like Tarn Thai. Located in the middle of Hockley’s lively atmosphere, this restaurant is one of it’s prize possessions.
Tarn Thai declared itself open during the heatwave of 2006 and ever since, there has always been an easy flow of customers, ranging from romantic dinner dates to business clients. The exterior design refelects a very modern, sturdy building and if you take a sneaky peek through the windows, you can see one of the water features with the live fish swimming happily in their perfect haven – a very nice touch of elegence in my opinion.
The internal decor is simply beautiful. Dripping with expensive furnishings, the whiff of quality food and the musty scent of insense burning, transports you to the peaceful nature of Thailand itself. As you relax back in the unusually comfortable chairs, you can’t help but admire the atmosphere and the amount of organisation that must have gone into such designings.
The waiters attend to your every needs with a smile and a soft glow to their eyes, you know they’re genuinely happy to serve you. It’s a pretty swift service yet not rushed. I felt I could take my time and there was no one breathing down my back just waiting to give my seat to another customer. Yes they were nearby and always on hand but isn’t that what we call good service?
The kitchen shows a practised hand in dishes such as marinated beef or grilled sea bream in banana leaves. The prices are very reasonable and the lunch menu inparticular is value for money at it’s best. The way they lay out their food really is an ‘instagram moment’. The rice is moulded into a heart shape and the salad garnishings on the side are prettily carved into flowers and cut very decoratively. It’s a lovely sight and an absolute delight to eat.
I love it here and I think many others will too, I sincerely encourage you to come and experience the Tarn Thai ambiance!
