9 reviews of Montien Thai Restaurant
Awful awful awful! We visited on 17th September and have previously had excellent experiences at their other branches in London. The staff are friendly enough but this definitely has a chain feel to it, which it didn't before, so was extremely disappointed to receive tasteless, luke warm food. The prices are not reflective of the quality - we paid c.£60 for two starters, two mains, a glass of coke and a glass of wine. We've had some great experiences at Preedee Thai and Sunitra's in Tunbridge Wells so if you're looking for a good Thai meal, I'd suggest going further afield. I'm hoping Montien Thai will be better.....
My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant for the past 15 years. The presentation (table cloth cutlery, crockery) is immaculate, the food is very delicious, the service is excellent and the price of £7.50 for a 3 course meal at lunchtime unbelievable! It is simply outstanding by any standards.
This had to be one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. The food was mediocre, ambiance terrible and staff rude. When we told the waiter that the sweet and sour Chicken looked undercooked and unappetizing, he just said that's the way it is prepared. We didn't even eat the meal and he wanted to charge us for it. When we asked to have it taken off the bill, he got in a large argument with us. I have never been so appalled by the service.
We love this place. 3 course set menu for about £7 includes some very nice dishes, but the a la carte Thai beef salad and pad kee mao are our favourite. Very friendly, local style restaurant. The staff always remember us and are so friendly and accommodating towards us and our kids. They also make a special off-menu noodle dish for my boy who doesn't like spicy food. Not posh, but inexpensive and friendly.
Been a few times its very good service and food.
I have always had great service and great food at Montien in Sevenoaks. Friendly staff, authentic food and best of all free prawn crackers and optional service charge!
Appalling from start to finish; didn't offer to take coats; 15 mins for a greasy menu to arrive; white wine served warm; starters arrived after 25 minutes and then only when I had given up and asked for the bill; food under average; grungy carpet; tables left uncleared; charged twice for wine; avoid unless you enjoy moaning; you will have plenty of material to moan about; other diners echoed my observations.
The food is very nice and the service friendly and efficient. Great atmosphere and great meals for low prices. Preparation speed was a bit slow, but i probably caught them at a bad time. I look forward to going back.
The food is good.
