During lockdown I have tried many of the Thai takeaways in Eastbourne and have been very disappointed with most of them, so I decided to look up on Trip Advisor to see if I could find any others available that I hadn't ordered from before and found this one was No 1 for Thai in Eastbourne.
I went onto the website to order, it was a Saturday night so I knew it was going to be busy - I was offered times to receive my food delivery and the first one available was for one hours time, I chose that.
It wasn't until I was paying that the time changed to one and a half hours, which was quite a long time but luckily I found the food so good, it was worth the wait.
You have to order a minimum of £20 worth of food and delivery is £2 and there was an extra 50p charged, I think they add it as a fee for using a card.
I ordered a starter of vegetable tempura - it was more breadcrumbs than batter but they tasted very nice and the sweet chilli sauce was very good too, I would have liked more of that - the pot it came in was very small.
I also ordered an egg fried rice, that was a little clumped together and there wasn't much egg but it tasted very nice.
I also ordered two dishes, a chicken masaman curry - this was so good, the meat was large pieces, lot of it, perfectly cooked potatoes, some carrots and big pieces of onion - the sauce it was in was perfect, so tasty.
The other dish was a chicken pad Thai noodle, also very tasty and very good.
I was given a bag of Thai prawn crackers which were also very tasty and crispy.
I will definitely be ordering from here again.
The lady who delivered my food was wearing a mask and was very friendly.

Always a fabulous meal, a favourite for birthday celebrations. Since lockdown they have offered deliveries which have been just as good, delivery has always been on time and communication has been good. The one time they made a mistake it was quickly rectified.

Thai Brasserie is only doing deliveries at the moment as we're in lockdown but when you place your order there is no indication of how long it will take until after you've paid. In our case it was two and a half hours! We tried to ring them but couldn't get through on the phone. It makes you wonder how many orders they take on a weekend and whether it's about trying to take as much money as possible even if they can't cope with demand. Food when it arrived was just average.

We were staying at a local campsite called, paid and the food arrived 20 mins later. Food is to die for, would highly recommend, thank you

I absolutely love Thai Brasserie, just double check if you’re veggie that your food is being cooked separately from meat. When I used to go I know they cooked veggie food in the same friers but that never stopped me from going as there food is incredible.

Thai Brasserie is a gem! With cosy welcoming atmosphere and awesome food. We ate there two dinners back in August and enjoyed food so much. All freshly cooked, authentic and very tasty.
The service staff were attentive, friendly, smiling and the most they do service with genuine warmth.Highly recommended. We will miss this place and definitely return here when in Eastbourne again. Keep doing an excellent job! Thank you.

The welcome was warm, the food was excellent, the ambience just right; we'll be going back soon - a wonderful restaurant in the centre of Eastbourne - much needed!

One of the best meals I’ve had in a while. All the dishes we chose - starters (pork dumplings and tempura veg) followed by mains (beef, battered chicken and duck from the “must try” section with coconut rice and prawn pad Thai) were delicious. The service was brilliant.... quietly attentive eg we were offered tap water from the start (didn’t have to ask) and it was topped up whenever necessary. It’s the little things like this that make a difference. Thank you

I highly recommend this restaurant, it is a unique gem in Eastbourne,if you are looking for good Thai food, the staff has been exceptional and the food is delicious.

This restaurant is located on the first floor (second floor in the US term) of a newish, small shopping centre (not many shops, though) right next to the station. It has lots of plants and flowers, making it look like we were in an exotic location.
Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly and seated promptly. They had an excellent value lunch menu - starter, main and a drink - at £9.95. Pad Thai (£7.50) was simply divine! It had seven pieces of juicy prawns and the taste and flavour were excellent. Chicken with Cashew Nuts were less successful and the rice was just OK. Vegetable Spring Rolls were crispy and very tasty.
The service was very friendly, polite and efficient, making our visit enjoyable.

I visited this Restuarant on the 8/08/2020 with a friend and I was pleasantly surprised with how good the service was. We had a very lovely waitress and the overall atmosphere was lovely.
The food was flavoursome and cooked to our spice level which my friend and I appreciated.

We went here on 29th July and were impressed with the warm welcome and quick attention from the staff. Ella (I hope that's right) was especially good and very knowledgeable and understood our requirements, as my husband and I both like hot spicy food and I cannot eat certain things. We had mixed platter to start and it was beautiful especially the Duck spring roll. My beef panang was delicious and creamy, very succulent meat, and a nice dose of requested extra chilli. My husband had the jungle chicken curry and that was superb, plenty meat which was tender and nice vegetables.
Excellent value as well. Definitely would recommend and go again when we are next in Eastbourne.

Amazing staff and the food is out of this world. Don’t usually write reviews unless it’s a standout :)

Great welcoming staff.
Food was good! Salt&Pepper squid was excellent as was the Prawn Singapore noodles.
First week if opening / social distancing so very Confused why they sat all 4 tables very close too each other when they could have spread people around..... even tho arriving an hour before closing and 80 percent of tables empty, perhaps they were expecting a last minute rush lol But apart from that, good overall food!

We visited the Thai Brasserie based on its glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. Well we weren’t disappointed. The restaurant is quaint and cosy and the waiters very polite and accommodating. The menu choice was very good and not to extensive. Our starters were beautifully cooked and the best steamed dumplings we had tasted. The mains were also delicious, the weeping tiger steak was juicy and tender, drunken noodles both full of flavour and light enough to keep eating!!. We have enjoyed the food so much we are returning for lunch again today!!.

We visited this restaurant late on Sunday and Tuesday night and it was a nice friendly experience the moment we walked in. Nothing was too much trouble. The menu was varied and the food was excellent. Excellent Pad Thai and stir fries were full of flavour. We are used to visiting Thailand regularly and I think the food is as good in this restaurant. If we return to Eastbourne we will eat here again.

Forget the other Thai restaurants in Eastbourne, Thai Brasserie is the place to come. Thai is my favourite food and I have got to the stage in life that when I go out to eat I want something either exceptional or that I can’t cook myself and Thai Brassiere delivers on both. Great menu and a lovely family who run it. Have been coming here for 7 years and will continue to do so.

Heavenly Thai food, I go there every Sunday. It is the best Thai food I have ever had even in comparison to many Chinese food and Italian food. The closest taste to the Thai food in Thailand you get in UK. 😋
