About
One of only 15 UK restaurants recognised by the Thai government for its quality and cuisine, Nipa wears its heritage proudly on its sleeve. The teak-panelled interior is inspired by its sister restaurant in Bangkok, with a profusion of orchids that feel strangely at home in their first floor setting in the Lancaster Hotel overlooking the Italian Fountains of Hyde Park. Three set menus and the extensive à la carte offer a mouthwatering range of intense Thai flavours, mixing traditional dishes of central Thailand with regional specialities.

Can't really find anything to fault with this place. The food was really good and the staff were very polite and friendly. The drinks are quite expensive but not extortionate given the setting.More

First visit for early dinner and chose pre-theatre menu (£24pp) and a bottle of wine. Despite pre-theatre course menu food was high quality and also a glass of wine/beer was included. Attentive staff and very nice ambience. Overall very good.
