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!
A real find - great food, relaxed location and the most attentive and yet unobtrusive staff. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. They made an ordinary meal out into a real occasion. Thank you so much we will be back soon.
We would really recommend this lovely restaurant. Tasty, flavoursome food, very helpful staff and the prices were pretty reasonable. We will definitely be going back!
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
The whole experience at this restuarant is excellent. Its small, cosy and warm and the food is excellent. If you're in Westbourne or Bournemouth and looking for excellent thai food and great service then this restaurant is a must. We will be coming back!
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.
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.
No matter how good the venue or food there is always room for improvement. Glad we found the venue as the lighting for the name of the restaurant was not clear, or clearly lit. Now we know where it is we WILL definitely return.
Excellent food, good wine/beer list, friendly staff and attentive service . Third time here and will definitely come again. Walking distance for us but there is ample parking on site and on the road.
Food was delicious. Authentic and good quality. The only reason I didn't give a 6 was the service was very slow. If you don't mind waiting and making a night of it then I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful food in a relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of choice on the menu. Service excellent and with a smile. Made the evening very special. We will definitely be visiting again!
The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. Very pleasant atmosphere. We were made to feel very welcome. The price was also very reasonable. Would definitely recommend
Tiien Thai is the best Thai Restaurant in Bournemouth. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is impeccable. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves Thai Food!
The service as well as the food excelled all expectations. This will definitely become our new regular favourite place for dinner. Thank you for the perfect evening.
Very good food and welcoming friendly staff. Service was good too. Wine list good and well priced. All the family enjoyed the experience. Will definitely visit again.
A wonderful experience! Fantastic food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Would not hesitate to recommend and so pleased that we have our own Tiien here in Westbourne!
The food was perfect, staff very nice, it would have been nice to have had a decaffeinated coffee to finish the meal off, we all can't take caffeine.
Very friendly helpful service, really welcoming. The food is good and both times has arrived quickly and been of great quality. Will definitely return soon
really Excellent food- the menu is not quite as extensive as the Bournemouth location but the service was amazing we really felt welcome and staff were very attentive.
Premises very small/decor-poor/tables too close together and not very intimate-however the food was good.Would not go there again even though I live nearby-prefer to go in to Bournemouth.
