Decor that’s about as dismal as the endless traffic outside shouldn’t distract you from the high-quality food within Thailand. Faux-stone tiles, a mock-tiki bar awning in the corner and dull paintings suggest that this is yet another dreary Thai takeaway – but the menu holds treasures. The Thai options include well-prepared classic stir-fries and curries; for more of an adventure, go for the Laotian specials, which offer real treats. The dramatically named angry lamb featured stir-fried meat swimming in a delicious sauce that was thick, sweet and fiery, topped with fresh basil. A duck curry offered the ultimate opportunity for sweet indulgence: perfectly tender thick slices of the bird in lashings of smooth coconut milk enlivened with tomatoes, pineapple and lychees. An otherwise classic pla kung (prawn salad with mint, coriander and spring onions) was let down by slightly undercooked prawns. While Thailand is often quiet, and may not be the ideal place in which to linger over a romantic meal, the bold and varied flavours make it an excellent spot to enjoy an interesting dinner.

Very authentic Thai food here. The curries and tom kha soup are great. I had another kind of soup here that I'd never had before or even seen on the menu at other places. If you are looking for more than your average curry or pad thai, this is a good place to go, prices are great, service is good too!

The amount of meat was pitiful. It wasn't even a quarter of a breast of chicken. Stuffed with vegitables. Flavor was great. Bit too sweet, but was utterly dispointed with the amount of meat and especially givcen the price tag. They also sent me a wrong order. I ordered green and yellow curry, but got green and massaman curry. And to top it it off they denied messing up the order and refused to sort things out. I strongly fel they are exploiting people and not least when it comes to portions. You have been warned!

Awful service, similar experience to other people. Food never arrived - despite driver calling several times several hours after we ordered. He refused to deliver the food. Will never order again.

I had a really good thai take away from here and the service was absolutely fine, the girl was actually quite sweet. For a thai restaurant I don't think it is over priced. Big portions, full of taste and not greasy like some can be. I live quite close so will definitely be visiting here often.

By far the worst Thai restaurant in London!! I agree that the good reviews must be fake! The food is dreadful and the service the worst I have ever encountered. We ordered a takeaway and were advised it would take 30-55 mins. An hour later we called to chase it up and were rudely told it wasn't our fault but would be further 55 mins. Then after two hours had passed, we called to see where it was again and asked to cancel the order. We were told that we could not cancel the order and the person on the phone lied saying it was on its way to us with the driver. Another 50 minutes later the food arrived cold and disgusting and we threw it in the bin. We complained and asked for a refund and They sent a rude girl around who stood on the doorstep saying that we'd get no refund unless we could give the food back!!!! So I salvaged what I could from the bin and put it back in the cartons. The girl was unimpressed and accused me of eating the food and said it was unlikely I would get a refund even though I had given her about half of the food back out of the bin! She then lied and said that we had been advised on the phone to keep the food if we were unhappy with it, which we were not!! Service aside, what we tried of the food was cold, bland and salty. DO NOT GO HERE!!
