TASTY!

Really great balance of sweet, hot and sour in their food. Service can be a little slow but they are always friendly and it's definitely worth the wait if you've got the time. Thai food seems to have got more and more expensive in the UK over the last few years (it's probably got better too... read more

This restaurant was my favorite local Thai for quite some time. However, after purchasing a takeaway and having a sit down meal recently I have to look elsewhere. The waitresses are moody the place needs a dust (please look at the wall shelves and Thai ornaments) and the back area where you collect your takeaway smells musty. The food is... More

The restaurant had a really nice atmosphere, and some very interesting furnishings I loved it! The food was not the best Thai food I have tasted but was fairly good considering the price, the starters especially the vegetable tempura were very nice! I would recommend a visit :)

Had been a few times before to the Petch Sayam and enjoyed the food, the wine other than the house wine was quite expensive. The restaurant was cold and the only heating was an oil filled electric heater hogged (quite rightly) by a couple who had got there before us! Food was poor, no thai fishcakes (how strange!) and the... More

The staff were very friendly and the culture was very diverse. Unfortunately we ordered the beef and it was way too tough and overcooked. Watch out if you are ordering prawns that they are not deep fried as it doesn't say that on the menu. The back of the restaurant needs a refurbishment. Otherwise has a lot of potential. They...

Ok, it's not cheap and service can be slow but the food is absolutely brilliant. Best thai I've had in or around London, easily.

We went there last night and asked if we could have our starters and main served at the same time and was told they were busy so it was best not to, that is where the problem started. Starters arrived but only one was correct, it was taken away. Drinks took ages to arrive . Missing starter failed to appear... More

It is great choose for dinner in Leytonstone. The service is friendly, the food is very tasty and is a good value for money as the main dishes are great size.

Decor is quite over the top and dated but the food is lovely. Pleasant service by the waitresses and one of the better places to eat in Leytonstone... Prices are a little high but would still recommend to someone for a nice Thai meal. (I liked the fishcakes)

This is the best restaurant in Leytonstone and the best Thai food I've tasted outside London. The waitresses are all very sweet and friendly, the decor is traditional Thai and the food genuinely delicious. They also do takeaway although I haven't tried it yet. Much better food and value than the trendy Rosa's!
