Using this restaurant whenever in the area and feel like having Thai. I love their Drunken Fried Rice! It is absolutely delicious! No big chain restaurants can ever match that taste! Look forward to have some again!

Excellent Thai food outside of Thailand. Very small restaurant and you cannot book. So arrive early to avoid disappointment. Very good Thai food and will make to Thai spicy standards. Jasmine flower tea is a must.

Wouldn't usually go for Thai for Sunday lunch but we couldn't resist the aromas coming from this lovely little restaurant. Everything from the service to the food was exceptional. My husband loves a good yellow curry and he wasn't disappointed. We are actually planning another visit to the area just so we can go back here for some more yummy... More

I've been here a few times and have always enjoyed the food. Last time I went it took almost 20 minutes for my main to come out, and the entire order was wrong. I told the waitress and she offered to change my order but I didn't have time, so spoke to the manager when paying. He was reluctant to... More

I can't count how often I've been here. It's cheap, friendly, always delicious. I am a bit addicted. I often bring friends on visit to London here. I will 100% be going back!

It was a fairly quiet Wednesday and late afternoon. Hubby ordered a Tom Yum soup with prawns which was ok but lacked heat. Hubby was disappointed. He also had a green Thai curry. The sauce was ok. Again though, it lacked chilli heat. I ordered a Thai metro grill, which I expected to be grilled. Really disappointed to receive a... More

Delicious food and good value for central London. However, the attitudes of certain staff members need to change. Probably won't return based on this alone, which is a great shame.
