The location of this restaurant is in an inauspicious area of South London very close to Norwood Junction railway station. The menu is wide ranging and caters well for all tastes, including vegetarians and vegans. The staff are very friendly and helpful and don't rush you. The food is very authentic and tastes very similar to what you would expect in Thailand. The papaya salad is yummy. It's not the cheapest but neither is it the most expensive Thai place in the area. The air-conditioning is a real boon on a hot day. Definitely worth a visit.

Some years since we were last here. In the unfashionable part of northern Croydon; by Norwood Junction railway station. So just one stop on the train from West Croydon. This small restaurant had had some redecoration inside, and a reprinted menu but was otherwise unchanged. Meals are promptly cooked, and attentively served. Not haute cuisine but pleasant tastes. Wines by the glass (175ml) as well as by the bottle.

This used to be a very good Thai restaurant years ago. Decided to visit on a Sunday afternoon. Waitress seemed like it was an effort to serve. I decided to order butterfly prawns, it was not fresh, overcooked. I then requested Pad Thai with no peanuts, the noodles were undercooked, and overpowered by sauce. This was a very disappointing experience for this restaurant, as I use too frequent many years ago. It seems that this has changed ownership, and the food is defiantly not up to scratch, I will not be visiting this restaurant again. As for the waitress, maybe a bit more attention to customers, and maybe learn to lay table settings as oppose to throwing cutlery on the table.

We decided to have a take-away from some decent Thai restaurant in South Norwood and found out about Mantanah. It was a very good choice. It turned out it is not just a take-away shop but a very pleasant restaurant with a nice decor. Since I did not find my favourite pla chu chi in the menu, the chef made it just for me and my boyfriend, with a sea bass. It was really tasty. The service is extremely helpful - there are very friendly people working there who know how to satisfy a client.
