Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Thai By The Weir
Bath’s newest addition to the Asian restaurant scene is a high-quality, low fuss option. My favourite fast-food fallback for a quick lunch or cheap evening out.
Despite the name, Thai By The Weir actually dishes up pan-Asian cuisine from Thai classics like tom yam spicy soup to Vietnamese pho and Japanese gyoza dumplings. Fresh and fast, it’s all simple but tasty and most dishes have a beef, chicken, prawn or veggie option available. Lovely Singha beer is available along with a good range of spirits to wash everything down.
Thai By The Wier's beef pho soup is delicious and even better than the real thing that I had in Vietnam with its tender beef pieces and authentic flavours. Try the mango wontons for a sweet, crispy unusual pudding.
Deep red decor gives the restaurant an oriental feel and the atmosphere is more conducive to a good chat with mates than a romantic meal for two.
A little slow at times and there are sometimes a few communication problems, but staff are very smiley and helpful.
Just across Pulteney Bridge from the city centre; funnily enough it’s by the weir.
Dishes are priced according to which option (meat, fish, veggie) you go for. Sunday to Thursday there are two dishes for £10 offers (main and starters) and every day at lunchtime you can get a main for a fiver - look out for signs in the window.
Ask for a table at the back for a good view of the weir (although don’t bother if it’s dark – even if it’s lit up you won’t see much).
