Thai
Thai Terre is located opposite the village green in the picturesque South Downs village of East Dean, close to Birling Gap and three miles west of Eastbourne. At first a Thai restaurant may seem out of keeping with the flint-walled cottages and the well-kept traditional English village common, but this pairing reflects the driving principle of Thai Terre – to take the best the South Downs can provide and add an exotic twist to create something really special.

Yes I would recommend - friendly and good value for money. BUT, we were seated upstairs (which was very quiet and had absolutely no atmosphere.) So I recommend booking to sit down only.

We love this Restaurant. Always good service. The food is fantastic. This visit however was tainted by six over loud customers with no regard for other users.
Which took the shine off the occasion.
What can you do. .

I was somewhat disappointed; the village setting is nice, but, in my opinion, the intrusive signage on the shop front, was out of style and sync with such a traditional and unspoilt place.
The service was efficient enough, but nothing special, regulars got special treatment.
The food was quite a let-down. The mixed shared starter, was quite dull, flavours uninspiring and flat.
The singapore noodle dish, arrived in an unattractive " dark pile" of a uniform brown colour; not good visually and overcooked.
Pricey, for the quality level of the cooking that I encountered.
Pity, I would have hoped for better.

As always we had a truly lovely time. On this visit friends from Dorset were staying and were most impressed, particularly as one of them does not like onions/shallots. No problem they cooked his menu choice without. Lovely people always.

Dissapointing this time. Soup was very poor. The duck looked like it had been dried out. Another dish was horribly presented. Not impressed at all and our last visit was pretty poor also. Before that it was reliably good. A shame.

The food was delicious. The service was excellent. One of our party has a severe nut allergy and the waitress took time to ensure all of our dishes were nut free. Lovely place to visit.

The food was fresh and very tasty. The staff were really friendly and the service was quick. My only criticism was that we were sat in a tight corner with little room to move!

Always good, excellent value for money and the service is impeccable, only let down a little this time by the lamb cutlets being rather tough.

Went to Thai Terre with two friends at lunchtime to celebrate a birthday. Easy to book a table online. Food good value for money and beautifully presented. We were not hurried. In a very picturesque setting. All in all a good first time experience.

Having tried most of the Thai places in Eastbourne I think Thai Terre has the best food. However, ther are places with a little more ambience but as the food is the most important element of eating out East Dean is No 1

A thoroughly enjoyable evening and the extra little ‘touches’ ie. appetiser and tasty palette-cleanser delivered with a smile, made the evening all the more special. A great menu choice including meat, seafood, vegetables, herbs and spices. Something for everyone.
The 10% discount voucher made it all the more affordable!
