Description: Modern Classic Thai Cuisine. Beautifully executed cooking is the hallmark of this new Thai restaurant, situated opposite the old Olympic Studios on Church Road in Barnes.It's the first restaurant opening for its owners who have been working in luxury hotel restaurants prior to starting this new venture.For little more than the price of the average Thai take-away you get fresh and well-sourced ingredients, clear flavors and a very high level of friendly service.

“A welcome addition to Barnes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

One of those rare places where they get the three key elements (quality of food, value and great hospitality) spot on. The staff here, led by Lont the manager, effortlessly strike that balance between making you feel relaxed and very welcome without being overbearing or smothering. The food is lovingly prepared and served in ample size portions (we actually over ordered on our recent visit). Special mention for the Tom Kha Gai soup, Sua Rong Hai beef and the Pad Thai Koong. Standard Thai starters for change looked like they were freshly made and not deep fried to within an inch of their life and the wine list contains a few well priced gems.

As locals this has become a regular destination when we feel like treating ourselves without breaking the bank, a welcome addition to Barnes.

“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

From the moment we first came in we fell in love and we've been coming back ever since. Not only the food is amazing fresh, delicious and beautifully served. Meal is accompanied by a good quality wine and on top of everything staff is just perfect. Very professional and attentive and at the same time kind and genuine.
Place gives you a feel of an expensive restaurant for really little money.

“Excellent new Thai restaurant in the lovely village of Barnes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We have been three or four times and very time the food and service are excellent. The owner is a charming helpful and generous man and does so much to make you welcome and your experience the best. The food is fresh and has quite a few unusual variations on the average Thai menu, like tagliatelle with beef in Thai sauce which was moorishly good. He is gaining a good reputation in Barnes and it is well deserved. Highly recommended.

“Very friendly, what a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We occasionally pick up a take away from Awesome Thai. What a pleasure to be recognised and adressed by name, always given a complimentary dish and occasionally a free beer.
The food is excellent too. Lovely people, its nice to see it doing so well. Top marks.
