    Usually this restaurant is wonderful. Usually the artist who sings is a man who creates a lovely atmosphere with his fantastic choice of songs and is a brilliant performer . However , the last time I ate here , the man left early and there was a female performer on . The music was loud ( not a relaxing atmosphere for dining ) some songs inappropriate for the place, and she was dressed in leggings and cropped top !! Not appropriate for Saturday evening dining . I will be checking to see which performer is on next time before I book. Shame because this was the best restaurant in Middlebrook .

    We went for a dinner but found it extremely noisy could not hear each other talking , the food came out however my chicken meal was cold so sent it back , when I got it back it was hot however the chicken had an odd taste to it so left it . Explained the issue to the waitress but other than an apology nothing was offered. Also no drinks menu on the tables either .

    Best Thai food around we went for lunch but it was on a match day so it was very noisy so if you want a quiet meal go anytime but just avoid match days We have been other times & on Saturday nights when they have had singers on & a magician & they are really good nights we would definitely recommend Nam Ploy cause it’s the best Thai food & you get a really good variety of food on the menu

    Food was ok but not particularly hot, enjoyed what we had. Service was ok too. Some things were expensive ( the very small bowl of rice and salt and pepper fries ( they weren’t really salt and pepper ) Duck nice and starters tasty. There was a singer and quite loud music so good atmosphere for groups of people. Was greeted at the door when arriving and acknowledged when leaving, a nice touch. Guess I’d go back but probably choose food wisely.

    The food and service was excellent and the restaurant had a really good atmosphere. However I did not like that for a table of 4 they added a discretionary service charge to the bill. We did not pay it but did leave a cash tip not much different to the service charge.

    This was our first visit to the Namploy since it moved from Chorley Old Road . We were not disappointed. From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt relaxed and welcome. The food was amazing. I had Tom yam soup followed by sea bass. It was divine. We we’ll definitely be returning. There are no negatives. We had a wonderful meal. The service was excellent No complaints

    Efficient service reasonably priced with good menu choices catering for all dietary requirements. Was early Sunday evening so quiet when I’ve been there before on Saturday it’s very loud and difficult to hear what everyone in our group was saying.

    Booked table for 5 at 6.30, starters came quite quickly but main course didn’t come until 8.15 and was Luke warm. Throughout that time the starter plates weren’t cleared. I have previously been to nam ploy and it’s been excellent so was very disappointed on this occasion

    Went for lunch on a match day, awful experience! In addition, food was not good. Thai food is famous for a variety of flavours and fresh ingredients. None of that was there. This was my last visit.

    Our first time coming here. Decor and food were good, but what we didn't know when booking was that live music was planned that night and, while the guy with the voice and the guitar was great, the volume was way too loud. Placing our order with the waitress was challenging as a result, and conversations around the table that was too small for the dishes we ordered was nigh impossible. Also, that Jungle Curry is effing spicy!

    Booked as a last minute option on NYE, set menu. Was a lovely evening, food was freshly served and the timings between courses was fantastic perfect. Plenty of food for everyone and great choice of drinks. Entertainment included a singer, live band and magician who came to tables, all in all a fantastic NYE and will definitely be visiting again

    The staff were really lovely but over stretched as were the chef side. A manager? was critical of staff to us which wasn’t professional. Could have given a hand instead to support the team. The food was good, though I wouldn’t say exceptional but it was nice. They ran out of napkins but did get some from the bar. There was a veggie/vegan choice of dishes, for some of us dining, which was a plus - a few choices too rather than an afterthought as often happens in restaurants. Staff did their best despite it all and remained polite friendly and professional.

    Booked the restaurant last minute on Christmas Eve as I really fancied some Thai food, must be honest I didn’t go in expecting much from it as I was dubious as most restaurants located in a retail park can be a bit average. I am very happy to say I was completely wrong. The food was very tasty, the atmosphere was really good and the service was excellent. I will definitely visit again soon

    Food was absolutely lovely , service was good . Speakers playing music was a little bit loud as you had to talk loud . Also full of wanderers fans after their home game having a beer or two , if you wanted a romantic quiet table kind of evening don’t go when Bolton are at home . Overall very good if not a little loud . Oh and they show the premier games live on sky .

    Was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant feel - looked like a fast food restaurant near McDs etc. But was very comfortable, warm and welcoming inside. Was pleasantly greeted and escorted to our table which was in a nice private booth. Service was outstanding - asking if our seats were okay, ordering food and drinks was easy and very pleasant staff. Food, particularly the green Thai curry and seafood noodles were fantastic - ate the lot! Had a singer in while we ate but just at the right volume and good choice of songs to compliment the restaurant. Even had a magician who walked round the restaurant doing private magic tricks for you after you'd eaten - he was brilliant. Pricing was spot on and will definitely return.

    We had the Tamarind Duck and the Red Curry. Both were delicious. The place was very busy but were were seated immediately and the food arrived quickly. Service was friendly and efficient. The band were excellent but maybe a little loud so we had to shout at each other to make conversation. Nam Ploy is a bit expensive for regular dining but ideal for a special treat.

    The chicken was so hard I had to send my meal back . Sticky rice was solidified. All I could taste in the stir Fry was cheap cooking oil .. nothing authentic about it . Even the rose Zinfandel tasted off , poor choice of wine . In all honesty it was awful and tasteless
