Great option for lunch while shopping in Kingston

I regularly eat lunch here on Saturdays when visiting town. The lunch deals are good value and its so much better than eating in one of the boring chain restaurants in town.

I always walked past this restaurant and never thought much of it - hidden in the corner of Kingston, I didn't think it was anything special. After looking for a new thai to try, we came here last Friday after reading the reviews and I am pleased to say that I was very impressed. The service is really good, the... More

Amazing food, intimate atmosphere and good value for money, perfect! As quoted by a previous reviewer this really is a hidden gem, I already can't wait to go back, for me and my fiancé the service was fine as we don't like to be rushed and make a good evening out of dinner enjoying a bottle of wine throughout. I... More

This restaurant is great for lunch while shopping in Kingston, you don't need to book in advance its not crowded they have a fixed price lunch menu with a main course and a drink for about £7 and the food and service is always good. Why crowd into Starbuck or one of the chain restaurants in Kingston when you can... More

I only found this place through TA - thanks! We took some friends for dinner who had never eaten Thai food before and they were worried that it would be too spicy for them. They needn't have worried. We had the set meal, and checked first that nothing would be really hot. They loved it. We loved it. The restaurant... More

I lunch in the Thai on Thames once or twice a month. Wholesome fresh food with pleasant waitresses who always keep my pot of Jasmine tea topped up. 3 courses at lunch for £11.75. It is incomparable value in Old London Road. I'm so regular now that they know my order before I am seated. I'm an avid Trip Advisor... More

This restaurant is a little hidden gem. I love Thai food and got the taste for it while having a holiday there. Thanks to trip advisor myself and the family booked a table for my Birthday. From the outside it is easy to walk past without noticing it is there. However inside the décor is lovely and true Thai. The... More

Went here early this month with some work colleagues. We all ordered different food and are not shy about trying each other's dishes. For starter I had some sweet glazed chicken wings, and tried my colleague's duck rolls, both were great. I had the lamb massaman which was incredible - the lamb melts in the mouth and the sauce is...

We have been to this restaurant each time we come to Kingston, the food is great and genuine Thai, the service is great with smiles and genuine friendliness. This is a lovely little restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, we can thoroughly recommend it to locals and visitors alike.

We gad a good table next to the door which allowed some fresh air on a hot evening. Reasonable ambience. The fish cakes were not to my taste but the vegetable salad was very tasty. For the main couse I had the Pad Krapow (Beef stir fry with basil, garlic & chilli) and was not very impressed. If I'd cooked... More
