First off, the decor is great - modern but warm at the same time. There are great big lamps hanging from the ceiling giving off just...” more...

You can eat in or take out and get great service with both. Our first experience (me and Mog) was a take out and I had a delicious...” more...

Tommowinnie wrote on 19-09-2010 “Thai Thai is wonderful but, worryingly, it doesn't seem to get a lot of trade and is almost always empty when you walk or drive past and this is a real worry as to lose it would be a crying shame. The food here is fabulous. Authentic, fragrant, flavoursome, delicious, beautifully presented...the...” more...

The king prawn coconut curry dish is particularly good. They give you free prawn crackers and dips - result! And with the mixed hors d'ourves you get a little salt statue of...” more...
Tommowinnie wrote on 10-07-2008 “Zizzi is a fantastic Italian Restaurant. It's got glamour, grace and good food. The decor is swish and swanky, the menu is appetising and extensive and the quality of food, wine and service is second to none. I can heartily recomend the wild mushroom ravioli - it's fabulous. The portion size is...” more...

Tommowinnie wrote on 15-07-2008 “The Roath Food Market on a Saturday morning is sister market to Sunday morning's ever popular Riverside Market and though it isn't as big or as well-established, it's still fantastic. I popped along recently with £15 in my pocket, a vague sense of excitement and no real ideas of what i wanted and...” more...

You can also grab a take-out Bento Box full of yummy stuff to have for your lunch or tea. Mmmmmmm. You can either order from the menu or grab something from the...” more...

Tommowinnie wrote on 17-07-2008 “When it's good it's very very good and when it's bad, it's a real shame. The Armless Dragon is always a surprise to first timers. Hidden between Cathays and Roath, it's quite different fro any other eatery in Cardiff. The starter menu is divided in three - sea, land and earth (fish, meat and...” more...
Tommowinnie wrote on 17-07-2008 “Oh how I love Superstar Fish Bar (here we go!). The best curry and chips in Cardiff. Shame they don't do gravy and chips, but you can't have it all i guess. The staff even have Superstar Fish Bar T-Shirts! I want one. You get LOADS of lovely big fat chips for your money and the curry is...” more...

Tommowinnie wrote on 21-07-2008 “I love Riverside Market. The stalls nearly all offer fresh Welsh produce that make you feel healthier and more environmentally friendly and socially responsible just by looking at it! The fresh fish stall is fantastic, the meat stalls are all equally good and the veg is all straight out of the...” more...

You grab a drink, take a seat, go to the counter and order your fish or your meat, tell the chef how you want it cooked and what sauce to add and then it's delivered to your table in all its glory. This restaurant, on the...” more...

Down the bottom of chippie alley, there's a pink neon sign above a black doorway - it's very easy to miss - hiding one of Cardiff's legendary steakhouses.

I kid you not - there's a little undercover bit with a TV, sofa and gas fires for winter! It's FAB. Inside there are two rooms; a large bar to the front and a snug lounge at the back...” more...

They serve lush food and it's not a Brains place, so there's a wide range of drinks on offer that's not the usual offer. It's a great place to start your night. The...” more...
