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!
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.
Lovely meal especially the Tamarind Duck and the tempura vegetables they were just delicious! Very pleasant staff and nice atmosphere. Will definitely go again soon.
The food was lovely, the service was very friendly. Restaurant nicely set out and didnt feel crammed. Would definitely come back again and highly recommend.
A lovely friendly service from all staff and food arrived in a timely manner. Food very good with nice flavours, good spice level and served hot!
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
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).
We got a warm welcome, very friendly service. Restaurant was busy (full) but we got every bit of attention, as did the other guests. And it got better : the food was absolutely wonderful, fresh and great taste. Would recommend the Duck in tamarinde sauce.
Nice environment not too noisy even on a Saturday night. Service good, menu good and food excellent. Have been to the branch in Bournemouth and this was every bit as good. Only watch out is the limited parking both at the premises and nearby.
