I really don’t enjoy writing bad reviews however I think due to covid there was reduced staff which really affected our experience. The food was delicious but we waited ages for drinks, side plates, the air con being turned down etc. We were kindly offered 10% off our bill and a £20 voucher however I don’t think I will be rushing back until I know the service has improved.

I booked the table for 6.30pm and ordered drinks upon arrival. I didn’t get my first drink until 7.20pm! This is not an exaggeration unfortunately. It’s such a shame the place has so much potential and a great ambience but waiting that long is unacceptable especially when the prices are high. The drinks should be pre mixed then when ordered ice and garnish can be added and if this is the case I have no idea what it took so long. Management need to seriously look into this as we weren’t the only disgruntled customers there.

We booked a table, however when we showed up we were told our name wasn’t on the list. We were sat on high chairs at a tiny table which was very uncomfortable. We then ordered a cocktail, which was very expensive (£7) and was virtually undrinkable, we left our drinks almost completely full. We then asked for the bill which took around 30 minutes to come.

This place was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Having never been before and having heard many good things about it, my girlfriend and I decided it would be our first venture out in many months due to the current ongoing crisis (may I just say all the staff had all the proper equipment and measures in place throughout) and we were not disappointed.
We were greeted at the door by a very polite man and directed up the stairs to ‘the kitsch inn’ area of the establishment. Another masked gentleman with lovely long curly locks greeted and seated us and brought me an ice cold pint of Scotland’s finest and a rum bongo cocktail for the other half. A rum bongo as the name suggests is an adult alcoholic take on the cartons of juice I remember as a child. Fruity and delicious, it definitely does the trick tantalising tastebuds whilst browsing the food menu.
Our lovely waiter for the evening, Marc I believe his name was, was very helpful in answering any questions we had. ‘Small plates’ was the term that was used and I really enjoyed it as you get a wider variety of choice through out your meal and it’s a nice idea if you want to share like we did. They recommend 3 small plates per person and it was honestly the perfect amount. The food was outstanding and I’m so glad it was our first stop post lock down. It was a nice chill atmosphere and everyone was so nice to us.
Once we settled up we asked if there was a space in their brand spanking new beer garden for us to have a drink, and luckily there was. We enjoyed a few more varieties of cocktails made by obvious masters of the craft, complete with table service.
All in all stellar wee place excellent service, food was amazing, drinks were on point and I’ve never felt more welcome in a place I’ve never been before.
I’ve heard the also have a place called bowlarama in Glasgow city centre which I will be sure to check out in future. But not before I go back to the tiki bar.
10/10 would recommend to a friend.

The food was outstanding, but the service, although delivered by very friendly staff, was very disjointed and inattentive and food came out piecemeal with only part of the group served together. Might try again but maybe a less busy night.

Food was tasty and arrived quickly but ribs were cold. Drink service was shocking. The food arrived before the drinks, none of which were even cocktails only wine and spirits.

Food ok, could have had more chillis, spice and other Thai flavours.
I liked the tapas feel.
Sometimes difficult to get the waiters' attention and it wasn't that busy, but when they came over they were both good and had good patter.
Restaurant felt a bit student like and for a Saturday night it wasn't busy. The bar downstairs was buzzing!
Good value, ok food, but we won't be rushing back.

Best Thai food & Cocktails in Glasow.
My favourite place to eat and drink, the food is absolutely DELICIOUS, best satay I have ever tasted. The new menu is fantastic, smaller portions, cheaper prices, means you can have a little of everything. Staff are so friendly and talented. The cocktails are AMAZING, fresh fruit garnish in every mug or glass. I have been going here for years and take everyone I know, so they can have the Unique Tiki Bar and Kitsch Inn experience. Five star PLUS no place like it. **

Enjoyed the Thai food at this restaurant. We got 3 small plates and a side for £15 each which is good value and ample portions. No complaints about the food or service. An enjoyable experience.
