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 worked 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 flavours and a very high level of friendly service.

“Great Thai food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

Having moved to Kew a year and a half ago I had been struggling to find a good local Thai until now! The food was great, a standard style Thai menu so nothing hugely adventurous but the dishes are done exceptionally well all at very reasonable prices.

Great service too, the team was so friendly and welcoming. They even gave us a free desert since it was our first visit and whilst I wouldn't normally order a desert in a Thai restaurant the desert was great and home made I believe. Thai tiramasu - ironically I am not a huge fan of this dish but it was absolutely delicious! All the things I dislike about a 'standard' tiramasu were excluded here! I would definitely order it again.

All in all I would highly recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be back.

“Great service, delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Tucked away in Barnes, Awesome Thai, is very good though the logo caused considerable puzzlement for one of our party as he tried to work out what the name of the restaurant actually was. We were a little unadventurous and the amuse bouche (sesame prawn toast) was a welcome addition to the traditional dishes we went for. The ambience is buzzy without it being noisy and the food hits the spot.

Great food, very friendly staff. Opposite the Olympic cinema in Barnes, so great location for a pre or post film meal.

“Really good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

This is a fairly bland looking restaurant but the food really delivers. I have been twice in the last month. Both times the welcome has been fantastic, the restaurant has been very busy and the fod is way above expectations. Very good presentation, great food and really well priced.

“Awesome?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

I booked a table for two at short notice on a Saturday night. Not surprisingly we had the table nearest the kitchen towards the back of the restaurant near the kitchen.

The staff are friendly and efficient.

We ordered quite a lot of food which was perfectly fine and tasty, but i was expecting it to be "Awesome" instead of average.

4 starters and two mains along with a bottle of mineral water came to just under £50, which i thought was very reasonable.
