Whenever I'm in London I pop in here, and the food has always been reliably good, always tasty, well presented, served by friendly yet polite staff, and attentive management. Highly recommended.

First and last time in this restaurant. Staff friendly but incompetent....entrees good but main was a complete mixup. Only 2 for dinner, one got rice no main delivered to table, other got main no rice...asked for other meals told not long....waited 15 min before rest of meal....meals cold and no flavour....would not recommend at all.

We went and had an amazing night with very reasonably price food. The food itself was full of flavour and wonderfully presented. The staff were charming and friendly. Will definitely go again.

We looked forward to dining here, as it has a certificate of excellence. Unfortunately the Fish cakes were not home made and the Crispy Duck rolls were almost impossible to cut into as they had been deep fried for far too long. We ordered Thai green curry and a Chicken Mussaman for main course. Both were generous portions but again... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal in here before going to the Albert Hall, you really need to book a table as very small venue. Very clean and smart looking. Staff were very nice and attentive. Food was amazing, we had the mixed starter, husband then had a green curry and coconut rice, I had stir fried chicken. Nice size portions and... More

That's the name of the dish we really liked. The rest was so-so. VERY expensive for what you get (though in London standers it's not unexpected).

It is not a large restaurant so glad we reserved but had a really nice meal here. Tasty food, reasonable sized portions, pretty good value for London too (Two people it was £60 for two courses with beer and a bottle of wine). Service was with a smile!

Just went here for dinner as a single business traveler, and it was above and beyond expectations. Everything was excellent!

This is our second visit to London in 14 months and our second and third visit to Thai Taste. The staff are friendly and accommodating - on our first visit this trip we had our son, daughter-in-law and 19 month old grandson. They catered for his stroller no problems even though the restaurant is quite small. The food is amazing... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
