Wot, no mango ??

Generally good quality Thai food, especially the fish cakes, duck curry and Pad Thai. Staff quite friendly and helpful. Bunch of noisy Swedes at the next table which was slightly annoying, but can't blame the restaurant for that. Surprisingly, there was no mango so we couldn't enjoy our... read more

I wanted to give this lovely restaurant a good review, but the food is just not adequate. Thai Taste is on Cromwell Road near many Kensington hotels and clearly caters to a collection of hotel clients who do not value the hot taste of chilies or the umami of fish sauce. The food is bland and sometimes poorly cooked. Being... More

Went for dinner tonight with a friend, had the mixed starter for 2, then the drunken noodles and the duck red curry. Food was incredible, good portion sizes and for being busy the staff were highly attentive. Will definitely go again!

Visited Thai Taste today for lunch with a group of colleagues from work. Restaurant was clean, service was great, and the food was delicious. My only complaint would be that it was dead silent - a little background music would go a long way!

It's never the only measure of a Thai restaurant, but if their Pad Thai is credible, it's always a good start. We had a lovely lunch. One spicy noodle dish with chicken, and one Pad Thai. Both were very good, and the meat (chicken and shrimp) was cooked very well, clearly fresh and treated with care, above the standard you'll... More

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food was good too but would be nice to see something special, either the ingredients, taste or presentation. Price was good too compared with nearby restaurants.

Went here for an early dinner and was not disappointed. Both my husband and I had the Pad Thai with prawns and it was spot on. I've eaten in many Thai restaurants all over the world and their version of the dish was up their with some of the best. Would definitely go back.

Two of us went the first night. Four of us went two nights later. Both nights the bill for two of us with wine was under seventy pounds. Nothing was compromised to get good value. The staff were attentive, efficient and pleasant. The food was delicious, the wine very reasonable and a nice ambience. We shall go back for more.

Nice staff. But something always irritates me when dining alone, you alwas get the worst table. This time I had takeaway customers standing beside me waiting for there food. Not good. Food was not anything special, good but not very good. Not expensive. A average place.

Stumbled across this small little place whilst staying nearby. Although just a small place, the atmosphere was just right (admit it was a Tuesday), food was great and reasonable price (given the location). Staff were very friendly, would recommend and will visit again.
