“Hooray! Thai cottage is reborn!”

This was previously Thai cottage - a fabulous little restaurant and take away which we were mortified had appeared to have closed. Now renamed the menu looks great and we just had a really delicious takeaway - the duck in tamarind sauce a particular delight. Very glad to have you back and will be visiting frequently!!

“Very impressive for the first try of Thai cuisine.”

I and my friend came to Special Thai on 29th May,2013 and it was really worth for 1 hour and 20 minutes train to go there. For the starter, we ordered"dimsum", prawn tempura and chicken wings. Prawn tempura with the garlic sauce was extremely nice and also the chicken wings. Dimsum would be better with more sauce in it but it is alright for me. The main dishes were Thai Curry Chicken, Udon, Pak Choi and Stir Fried Mix Vegatables eat with Egg Fried Rice and Coconut Rice. I love all the main dish and especially is the coconut rice with Thai Curry, it is amazingly matched!!!

For the dessert, for any tourists, you should try the Thai pancake, very worth to try.

Overall, it was a nice experience for me for the first time try Thai food.


“Authentic and delicious Thai”

The restaurant was lovely and cosy with beautiful Thai artwork. We ordered several dishes and all of them were delicious. Having been to Thailand and i can honestly say Special Thai brings the authentic taste of Thai cuisine to the Uk, beautifully presented accompanied by amazing flavours. I will definitely be visiting again very soon.


“Amazing restaurant!”

It was amazed when I walked in! All the decoration were full of traditional Thai style which are delicate! Of course the food were absolutely lovely! I like the prawn tempura with sweet chilli sause, fragrant and crispy! And the staffs were very friendly and they were in special Thai uniform! I will be regrettable if I miss it !
