The food was very nice and the service excellent but this place was really let down by the facilities - the toilets were really disgusting. On this occasion the men’s loo seat was broken so men had to use the ladies’, and in the ladies’ one of the cubicles was out of order. The main restaurant was decent enough and the meal very enjoyable but I do hope they fix this soon.

I always enjoy Krua by Nathong. This time my guest and I chose the set menu and were unsurprised to find it was delicious and plentiful. Best of all, my allergy was, as always at this restaurant, dealt with impeccably.

The food was very poor. I will not be returning. Food was cold and tasteless. 7 pound service charge added to the fixed price menu was steep.

I booked this Thai restaurant as I found on google maps it was the closest to our hotel (across the road from St Paul's Cathedral). I must say on the whole, we were very satisfied with our meal. It was nice and peaceful for a Saturday evening. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered tap waters and a Coca Cola. Lovely menu. Simple and easy to read (includes some photos of dishes). The start platter for 2 sounded delicious and ordered fried squid too. All of it was delicious and quite filling, although there could have been more squid. The breaded, butterfly shrimp was my favourite! For mains ordered we ordered the pad Thai (which was a tad too sweet for us), Jungle Curry (nice BUT VERY VERY SPICY to be warned lol) and wok fried chicken with basil, garlic & green beans. The wok fried chicken was very good. smoky and savoury. For 3 adults cost £85. Not overly pricy but not cheap either. You have to take into consideration the location I guess. On the whole very happy and will be going back.

Nice lunch here. I went with the a la carte menu: vegetarian spring rolls and chili basil chicken with jasmine rice. The spring rolls were perfectly cooked and not plasma-hot. The chili basil sauce was lovely, very spicy with plenty of chicken and vegetables. Service was attentive and friendly.

there is so much to chose from in London that you absolutely have to try to avoid this place. overpriced, basic in all aspects. The 4 of us were in a harry and just stopped by as it was close to us. would not recommend to anybody. If you do not have time, best to stop in any of the chain as they offer fresher and cheaper food in a nicer ambiance

Having been here a number of times previously (albeit a couple of years ago) and had great experience, I was disappointed with the level of service. Even though the place was not very full, the waiters were inattentive. Equally disappointing was the quality of the food, which has gone down significantly. While the soups were okay, the panfried salmon with tamarind sauce was dry and did not taste of tamarind, while the tofu in the stir fry tofu was chewy. Won't be going back

Shame really. Had red curry with prawns. Sauce tasted powdery and out of a packet and no one had said prawns would be in their shell as I am adverse to prawn shells. A little thing but. They also didn't mention they would be river prawns bigger and more cost. Would be good to check and I will also ask too. Friends pad Thai ok. Service good not rushed or pressured to leave but that could be because we were only 2 of 8 people at that time. Not recommend

Waiter started taking away plates before we’d finished. Pushy with next drinks too. Waitress failed to acknowledge we’d arrived for booking so we were marked as a no show. She also gave us another table’s change.

Having traveled to Thailand many times a year for over 20 years I can say this is one of the best thai restaurants I've had in the UK. So much so I will go to the restaurant in Bangkok to try!

We had an early booking (5.15) as we were going to the Bridewell Theatre. The restaurant was empty. Service was good, but the food was disappointing.
