Time Out says

This Walworth Road restaurant is all about authentic Thai flavours - with a few pan-Asian additions thrown in for good measure. The very accessible prices make it a good shout for local workers on the hunt for an affordable lunch. 

The menu includes well-known Thai staples such as tom yum and tom kha soups, red, yellow, jungle and massaman curries, pad Thai noodles and pla nueng manow - a popular stir fry of steamed sea bass in chilli and lemon served with garlic, chillis and coriander. Rendang curries, satay chicken, laksa and nasi goreng hint at a Malaysian influence.

There's no alcohol license so if you fancy a drink you best BYO.

We ordered a meal from Mama Thai over the phone and when we asked if they deliver (living very close by) they asked our postcode. We were, "sadly over ten minutes away", they said, I implored them, possibly stubbornly, that we could only be a short distance and that we would greatly appreciate their assistance in the matter of lazily receiving food at our door. 

It soon to became clear that they only deliver by foot, which explains the 10 minute threshold. With only the slightest hesitation they agreed to make the trip - by foot - and our food was delivered shortly afterwards by a very friendly chap who happily suggested that visit the restaurant some time because the food is always better when piping hot.

The food was lovely and since then we have eaten at the restaurant several times and they are just as accommodating and friendly as that lone thai delivery man who ventured out for 20 mins to ensure we got our order. 

BYOB with small corkage was great for the tighter purse strings as was the eventual bill sum.

What a lovely restaurant.


Mamma Thai is a lovely little Thai restaurant on Walworth Road with delicious food and great customer service.

I'm not a fan of the chicken wings but I liked everything else I've had, particularly the crispy fried beef.

The porations aren't huge but the quality is high so it's worth it. The restaurant is BYOB which is always nice. They do take away. It's collection only but worth the walk.

Great portions and amazing flavours. The staff are super sweet. Cute restaurant with amazing food. Good for groups and sharing platters also. BYOB option too!
