“Delicious and delightful”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We visited this restaurant for the first time after seeing the panto at the Mayflower theatre. We arrived a little early, the weather was atrocious, and were so pleased when we were invited in straight away. The evening was a resounding success, the service was excellent and décor delightful. The food was absolutely delicious, we decided on a set menu so that we could all share a variety of different dishes. The flavours were incredible, especially the Thai green curry. When the waitress realised it was my granddaughter's birthday the staff brought out some pieces of cake with a candle and a small present. We are already planning our next visit.

“Another lovely meal”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times and the food is always excellent. Papaya salad and chicken Penang curry are amazing and just like I've had in Thailand. Very reasonable prices for the quality of food too.

“Just a lovely dining experience”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We went here on a Monday night for my husband's birthday in a group of 14. Service was really efficient for such a large group and really friendly. Although the place was quiet and quite small the atmosphere was really nice. They asked if we were there for a special occasion and my husband got given a pudding with a candle in and we all got pudding too, which was lovely. We had a toddler with us, which they accommodated really well (highchair available and toy fruit to play with) and she was given her own little ice-cream which went down a storm! The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. Set Menu Yellow Flower was particularly popular. We would definitely visit again and recommend you do to!

“Could be perfect for the Mayflower and very nearly was”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We arrived as Leelawadee opened at 17:30 but so did many others for a pre-opera supper. We were most concerned at the start as we could not understand how one member of the staff could cope with 6 or 7 tables all arriving at the same time and get us to the theatre is little over an hour. The drinks took some time whilst she took the orders of the other tables and so, as a result, we cut our order just to a main course missing out on the starters. That was our mistake as suddenly all came out well. The food arrived in short order and was really very good. We all had different orders and each was delicious and had genuine Thai authenticity, not something one comes across that frequently in the UK!

What a really nice restaurant and, although quite bright, there was a really good atmosphere. We all agreed that we would certainly visit again although we might order in advance from the menu on the website next time so that we could really take our time before the theatre.

“Not bad.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is a small and friendly place, the staff were great and service was excellent. I may have just made a bad choice for the day, not the food but my enjoyment of it. We were a group of 4 and all the others enjoyed theirs. I will try it again.
