"We live in Shanklin and decided to visit on spec with friends. If you haven’t been yet I can highly recommend that you do. We were greeted and seated with friendly smiles. The menu is extensive and we ordered chicken satay and Thai fish cakes to start, which were fabulous. To follow we had Penang curry, beef stir fry and another spicy chicken dish (can’t remember its name) served with Pad Thai noodles full of jumbo prawns and mixed meat. Everything was delicious and well presented and and we all agreed to revisit. Very soon I hope."

"We joined our friends in the car park round the corner from the restaurant, and although a half timbered Thai restaurant is.. well, unusual, the food is …stunning, fresh, spicy and we were offered the choice of additional spice or something to reduce heat if that was what was wanted, something I’ve never been offered anywhere without asking ! so for us four stars right there… The food is wonderful, if subtle flavours that release heat slowly and are not at all overpowering (but you know you’ve had chilli) is what you like. We enjoyed thin fillets of chicken satay, small tasty Thai fishcakes and tempura vegetables to start between us, then main courses of Jungle Curry, Green Thai Curry, and Tofu for our vegetarian friend. We finished off with banana fritters and ice cream, a few carbs to end what was a perfect Saturday evening. This will be the place for you. We were all very happy with the flavours we found. An excellent price to go with excellent food and service. A family owned restaurant, they take pride in presenting as well as providing their food. We will certainly be back…"

"We are local and regular eaters in the Shanklin area. We were reluctant to try this restaurant, but were recommended this ”new place”, by friends. It has evidently reverted back to previous family owners, and is now really,really good. The service, variety of dishes and options, quality of food, cleanliness and VFM, was second to none! It was very quiet on the night we visited, but it won’t be for long, if our experiences are anything to go by ! We shall return….regularly !!! and are now very happy to recommend this fab place."

"Please don’t mistake this restaurant for the previous Planet Buffet place Thai Mukda Restaurant is totally different. The restaurant itself internally does have a great Thai look and feel. The service was really good. It appears that this is a family run business ladies front of house and the dad in the kitchen. The food was fantastic!! I can honestly say it’s presentation, taste and freshness is outstanding. This kinda restaurant is what makes Shanklin a great place to live. I’m definitely going to be a regular. Keep up the good work. "

"1st visit. I do not often give an outstanding review but this place was a delightful gem that seemed popular with locals. The service was exceptional, with attentive, friendly and efficient staff. The food was served hot in ceramic pots, with lids that seemed to keep the heat in. Best duck breast with red curry I have ever eaten. Nice thick slices as well. Cook came out to chat to customers. Waitresses very friendly and helpful. I genuinely could not find any faults. Nice decor. Main course for 2 with Irish coffees afterwards £37. Public car park a short walk away. Now on my list!"
