I love Thai food normally, when i visit different locations i always head for the Thai Restaurants, I like my usual, Fish dish and Broccoli, so iask for Sea Bass dish together with a portion of broccoli in oyster sauce with jasmine rice, all was fine when i ordered at the Purple Thai in south Woodford. After 15mins was told they have no Broccoli the owner or Staff try to tell me it's out of season, okay i said please could i have a dish with vegetables, we only have green beans and green peppers which i accepted. I was absolutely appalled when i saw my fish it looked like it was frozen, deep fried and burn't with hardly any fish on there , the tail end was so hard, i had take it back out of my mouth, it was so dry. Sorry to say it was digusting the worse Thai fish dish i have ever had , surely it can't just be me, it was really bad, enough to put me off Thai food but luckily i do know some good ones are around. My vegatable's arrive when i almost finished my main course. I would definitely not recommend this Restaustant the seabass dish was £14.00 i dont mind paying more for decent fish, my partner's chicken dish was alwful, rock hard with no taste.

Welcome to Purple Thai – South Woodford
Our goal is to provide beautifully presented Thai cuisine in a contemporary and sophisticated setting.
The menu is deliberately unfussy , a collaboration between our Thai National chefs and ourselves and we hope shows a desire to move away from the usual Oriental fusion.
We have a specials board that shows the real flair of our very experienced chefs and this will change frequently.
At the weekends we benefit from a late license, allowing our diners to enjoy the Purple Thai experience of food, bar and music in equal measure. So don’t be surprised to find the latter being turned up a notch or two as the evening wears on!

Great night with friends. Lovely food , really friendly people and good music later on. First visit but we'd go back. Handy location between the cinema and the tube so no cabs - bonus. I have allergies to nuts and shellfish but it was just not an issue. Thanks guys, good effort !
