great Thai food

Busy spot, service was quick, food tasty and well priced. Large portions. Noisy but the food came out quick and was well seasoned without being overly spicy.

My friend and I went to this cafe/restaurant yesterday as I frequently eat Thai food and wanted to get some pad thai and green curry. My friend's green curry was prepared quickly and although it was not very tasty, it was ok compared to the pad thai that i had which was absolutely horrible, the sauce didn't taste at all... More

As frequent travelers to Thailand we now know what real authentic thai food means, at this place it not seem like it at all. I missed a lot. In papaya salad, there were no dried shrimps in it and not as spicey and the chicken dish has a very bland taste. Upon arriving the lady was friendly but the male... More

We were looking for somewhere to get some food fairly late in the evening about 10.00 pm never having been there before. We entered Thai Pot which looked surprisingly quite although it was the bank holidays. The waitess was soon over asking us form our orders and we had to turn them away about 3 times whilst we see settled... More

I came to this place with 3 friends for dinner yesterday. We arrived at 6pm and were told we'd have to finish before 7:15pm. That was fine with us as we had a theatre production at 7:30 so we were happy to dine. However, as we were choosing what to order, we were asked 2 times by a man if... More

This restaurant had a great location near theaters, the National Galleries, and Covent Gardens. The food was really good and the service was quick. My group of friends each paid cash separately and it was quite complicated but the staff were very nice and worked it out.

We very much enjoyed our visit to this lovely restaurant. We were given a warm welcome and given time to sit and read our way through the menu while our drinks were prepared. The menu is extensive and varied. We decided on a set menu for two. The interior of this establishment is one of understated elegance and appears to... More

Been meaning to go to this Thai restaurant for some time. It was recommended by some friends and it didn't disappoint. Ordered some papaya salad, beef salad, fish cakes, sticky rice and pork satay. Portion size was excellent. Papaya salad tasted very fresh, beef salad had plenty of meat, 5 sticks of pork satay with dip was just like you... More

we always come before going to ENO. I had spinach with ginger to start. It was perfectly cooked. My grilled prawns were delicious. I avoided the dipping sauce as it's rather sweet but nonetheless we enjoyed our meal. The others had fish cakes to start with - beautifully presented and pad Thai which they also enjoyed.

We visited during late lunch hour. The green curry was served in a small portion but it was ok. The "yum woon sen" (glass noodle salad) was just spicy, lacking the full flavours. The all-male crew looked tired and emotionless. There was no service and just going thru their job without enthusiasm. We were not greeted when we entered.
