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.

I wanted a quick and tasty supper before theatre and I got it. Green papaya salad was lush and spicy (I have never had one with dried shrimp even in Bangkok) and my red chicken curry was delicious, served with sublime sticky rice. Service was all smiles - quick, yes, but certainly not pressured. The manageress was charming and her... More

We have been for years to the Thai Pot, because they served very good Thai dishes. But this a second time when we had dinner over there that the food doesn,t taste if you are in Thailand. They are very flat in taste. And what more ? The Thai staff is totally not interested in there customers. They let you... More

This place is fine for a meal after work or catching up with friends mid week. The Monday night we were in was quiet and an escape from the crowded places elsewhere. The interior is more office canteen than restaurant but there is a good space between the tables. The menu is reasonably priced and offers a good vegetarian selection.... More

Superb place and been coming here for nearly 20 years. Dimsun a bit small but still good. Shared platter ok. Jungle curry never fails to satisfy. Lovely dry white wine to complement. Staff are lovely and friendly. Will be back for more!

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.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
