Despite not booking and arriving fairly late one Saturday night, the staff were warm and freindly. Restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere with usual Thai decor. The menu is pretty much standard fare. All the food tasted fresh and authentic. Potrion size was about right. Everything was very tasty. A few people mention the food is great value. It's not...

Hilltribe is a super little Thai restaurant in Richmond and is surprisingly a cheap eat. The lunch menu is great value (you can get a dish & glass of wine for £10). I go here regularly with work colleagues and it never fails to disappoint. The service is lovely and attentive while being very polite. The interiors are really welcoming,... More

Went to hilltribe on Tuesday evening so service was very quick and all round good. Ordered Tofu in one of the mains and only received a couple of pieces and so I would recommend that you ask for a good serving! Also, watch out for the small chopped up pieces of lemongrass in some of the chicken dishes as they're... More

This little hidden restaurant is like a breath of fresh air in the expensive Richmond. Here you can actually get a meal, which is great value for money and won't cut into your pocket. The food tasted great and service was fast. We came during a busy lunch hour on a week night, and managed to order, eat and leave... More

It was a very nice spot for lunch after hours of walking around Richmond and Twickenham. It is a lovely small restaurant, beautifully decorated. We enjoyed Singha beer with our green curry with prawns and Pad Thai with prawns. It was out of the very busy downtown core in a row of nice-looking restaurants. A good stop.

Thank Golferboy18
