went there last week after learning they reopened again under new management. we had a selection of dishes. The chicken in black bean sauce was nice as was the prawns in black bean sauce. noodles were good and just cooked right. The only issue we had was with the fish. They still have a long way to go with the fish dishes. The fish was not fresh . lastly the beef was overcooked and like rubber. Prices were cheap for Chinese food and overall I would go back and eat here.

Thainese – Thai, Chinese and Singaporean Restaurant is a newly established restaurant specializing in traditional Chinese, Singaporean and Thai food.
They only use the finest ingredients; fish, meats, herbs, spices and vegetables.
At Thainese they do not pre-cook any of our food, all our food is cooked to order.
We also have great private rooms and can hold upto 10 people. They are well insulated; warm and cosy and superb for families or a large group that require privacy.

This place was fabulous. From our large selection of starters to our several mains, all the food was exquisite and the staff provided a marvellous service. There is not one fault I could tell you about with this place. I HAVE RECOMMENDED IT TO MOST OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND DO RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE. That's my summary of Thainese for all those who don't wish to read my in-depth review but for those of you who do carry on reading: I'm a person that eats out a lot and I love trying different food but I'm very difficult to satisfy especial when it comes to eating out. I scrutinise everything from the food, service, ambience all the way to how the waiter serves the food. So yes, some may find me very fussy. Therefore, when I heard about Thainese and then took a look at Thainese through their website I decided to invite a few good people and go put it to the test. But, a part of me was thinking "Why am I so excited? It's just going to be another mediocre restaurant. Nothing special" Hah, was i wrong? I went with five others some new to Thai food and others with some knowledge and all of us were highly impressed by their food and service. We ordered a large selection of starters, six to be precise and all of them came together approximately twenty minutes after ordering (I hate it when one persons starter comes before the other or even worse; by the time another has finished!). Which I was very pleased with as all their food is cooked to order. The main followed after another twenty-five minutes or so. Wow, the aromas that hit my senses, it was amazing. We were sharing dishes so I got to try all of the six dishes that we ordered and each one tasted fresh and full of flavour. Everyone had there preferences but we all unanimously agreed that the food was fantastic and above the average standard. Unfortunately we we're short on time so we didn't get the opportunity of trying any of the desserts. Of all the dishes my favourite were the Assam Prawns, Chilli Lobster and Vegetable Pad Thai. The service was impeccable, the manager who was our waiter as well was so attentive. But, more importantly (well to me at-least) had in-depth knowledge of the food, where they're native to, the key notes of the dishes and how popular it was. That's very important to me as I believe you should have knowledge of what you selling regardless of whether your the waiter/manager. As for the décor and ambience, we ate at one of their private rooms which is located in the garden behind the main part of restaurant. It was subtly decorated, nothing extravagant but the subtleness played the part. I don't think anything to decorative would look good in the intimate space. The main restaurant however is more decorative to a theme but the theme didn't come across Thai/Chines to me more looked similar to interiors of Middle-eastern restaurants. Please don't mistake this as criticism as the place looks fabulous. Lastly, I found the prices to be very reasonable especially when it's fresh, high quality and cooked to order food. I've paid the same if not more for the average Chinese take-away! Well, there you have it. More of a story then a review,
