Review of Chiang Mai Thai restaurant, Southend-on-sea, Essex

We really love this restaurant and it is our firm favourite in Southend on sea. If we want more of a night out, then we go to Leigh on sea or Hamlet court road, but this little place is a gem, and such good value.

Although it has some thai ornaments and a thai feel to it, the plastic tablecloths let it down, but what can one expect when one gets the freshest food at a great price? Having lived in Thailand for 7 months, it is one of my favourite foods. We have tried lots of things here and I can say that it is pretty authentic. We have tried the green and red curries, stir fried vegetables in oyster sauce, Pad Thai, Tom Yum and Tom Kha gai soups, jasmine rice, fishcakes, dumplings and much more. The only things I wouldn’t have again were the fishcakes and dumplings, but all the rest was great.

We have dined a la carte and utilised their ‘evening buffet’ which is not actually a buffet at all – you actually sit there and order anything you like from the menu and just keep going until you are full, so this gives a great opportunity to try lots of things out. At £14.99 (at time we went) each, it is a bargain, and the food it just as good.

Sometimes I do wonder about encouraging people to go to my small, favourite places, such as this one and ‘Wings’ Chinese also in Southend on sea, as I don’t really want them getting so busy I cant get a table! However, I have to recommend this place for good food at good value and they deserve it as they are just so friendly, polite and efficient. A really nice experience every time we go…
