Thai Restaurant Newbies

A common theme with some of our new customers is that they have been meaning to come to Thai Lanna restaurant for years. We had been recommended by their friends/family, but they could never sum up the courage. Reasons given include “I thought it would be too spicy”, “what if I don’t like it?”, “I don’t know what to order” and “we have never eaten foreign food before”.

We understand these concerns and others – I personally dined at a restaurant in Lichfield and rushed home to eat as I was not only £25 poorer but still very hungry! Our reputation is somewhat better and over the last 13 years, hundreds of tentative customers from 2 months to 100 years old have dined with us and their concerns rapidly fade away. Many return, some just a few days later.
  • Firstly, some Thai dishes can be spicy, but many are not. We cook food to order to maintain its freshness, so some dishes can be ordered to taste. 
  • Secondly, we have a menu with over 100 choices, which should accommodate most tastes. 
  • Thirdly, our staff are trained to help customers chose their meal, or if preferred we offer seven set meals which are specially selected to offer a balanced meal.
Additionally, we recommend eating the ‘Thai Way’. This is where the table shares the dishes ordered. This not only provides a wider and more interesting range of tastes, but if someone doesn't like a dish, there are several others to choose from.
