We booked a table here for a Friday night. When we arrived, there were already 4 tables occupied, and the waitress simply said 'sit where you want'. The lighting was quite bright, and highlighted the tired decor. It was cold outside, and sleeting, so we were looking forward to a warm restaurant, but it was apparent after removing our coats,...

Haven't been here for a few years so thought we'd try it. Sadly we were very disappointed. No atmosphere, empty on a Friday evening with fan heaters not evening warming it up for us! Food ok but not great. Singburi further down the high road is far superior -authentic, fresh and flavoursome. The place is filthy... but it gets worse... More

I visited with my mum and she is notoriously hard to please, especially with Thai as she brought us up on it. She believes that a Thai green is the test for any good Thai restaurant so ordered it so we could make the assessment! I had a variation on pad Thai but spicy and with lime and coriander flavours...

A few years ago this used to be a great restaurant with fantastic food and service. The food is still authentic and tasty which is why I have returned a number of times hoping the service would improve again but I feel now I have visited for the last time. On a quiet night (only 3 other tables taken) it... More

Went there once on a Sunday night and it took them almost 2 hours to bring us the wrong dish. We complained but were afraid we had to wait another 2 hours if we asked to correct it so just had it anyway. The same for any drinks which were brought one by one since had to ask them again... More

My sister and I visited this place for dinner on Saturday night, having been before, but several years ago. Unfortunately the service has gone massively downhill, and now it appears the restaurant focuses on deliveries not diners. We waited about 45 minutes for our starter, and another hour our main course still hadn't turned up. Same thing happened to other... More

We've visited Perch Satan several times now and each time the service has been poor. Slow to take your order and bring food and drink - they are clearly prioritising take away orders above patrons eating in. It's a shame as the food is nice. Will stick to take away from now on.

Been there twice now. Absolutely delicious food but literally takes 1 and half hours to get to you. Other tables around us were experiencing the same thing.

Have been here many times as live in E11 and love Thai food and have 'mystery dined' there a number of times and deliberately been demanding and had the most chilled out and pleasant response to that. It's not the Ritz but that's the point...it's Thai in east London. Putting aside that the food is very good and reasonably priced,... More

Looks the part - lots of carving & tapestry, but almost invisible service and pretty horrible food kind of trumped all that. The veg penang had oil swimming on the surface and the veg was overcooked and mushy, suggesting microwave reheating. The North Star does great fresh Thai food just round the corner, and Singburi just down the road is... More
