Koh Thai Tapas

Koh Thai Tapas is a firm Table Pouncer favourite, and was one of the first names on our list of best Thai restaurants in Bournemouth. It takes the thing which makes tapas so great, the sharing, and combines it with authentic Thai flavours.The idea is to order lots of small plates to share with others, which means you get to try a nice variety of dishes. There are actually two Koh Thai Tapas restaurants within the Bournemouth area; one can be found in Bournemouth, with the other being just down the road in Boscombe. If you’re looking for a fun, upbeat meal, this is the place to head to.
