“Doesn't really taste Thai”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went to this place as it was the closest Thai restaurant to our hotel, and it fell short of the mark. The waitress and manager were friendly and the ambiance classy, but when it came to the food, the dishes were either lacking the crucial complexities or just completely overwhelming you with too much. My wife had the pad Thai, and the texture was good and it was sweet, but it was missing the saltiness of a dash of gold mountain sauce. I don't know if they were trying to keep the sodium down, but the result was lackluster pad Thai. I had the sliced ribeye in, well, just about every exotic Thai herb imaginable. It was like a salad of basil, mint and lemon grass, not cooked at all. So the result was, well, I had a mouthful of mint or basil with the texture of steak. It was very contrived. The bottom line is that this place did not hit anywhere the mark for our Thai craving.

“Not bad for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Turned up at 9pm on a Friday to a very busy buzzy restaurant only to be shown downstairs where we were the only ones.(ok it did fill up later!) ordered the set menu for just under £19 a head and I have to say it you couldn't go wrong. Mixed starters fine but small portions and the main courses were really much the same but have to say chef went a little OTT with the lemon grass in one of the chicken dishes (I had to explain to my friend it's not always served like that!). Overall 6 out of 10 but another one of those places where you only get for what you pay for.

“Good for quick lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Went here for lunch, food tasty (but only had a main each). My friend (half Thai) asked for a dish that wasn't on the menu & they made it for her. Bill was £25 for 2 mains, 2 soft drinks & service so great value, service not great but not terrible, in line with other café type places.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Came across this restaurant by chance and what a find. Although busy was made to feel very welcome and the food was excellent. Would certainly recommend and go back if ever in London again.

“Sri Thong - certainly not pants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Really, really nice & fresh Thai food. I had to check I was still in London as the prices are anything but. Well worth a vist, I am certain I will return.
