About the restaurant
In the Royal Lancaster Hotel, the Nipa Thai restaurant has been named after the original Nipa Restaurant in the Landmark Hotel in Bangkok. Lots of teak panelling, traditional Thai furnishings and artefacts lend an authentic air. All the staff dressed in traditional Thai costume are from Thailand - even the lady chefs. This authentic Thai restaurant is one of the first 15 recipients of the 'Thai Select' award - this award has been described as being the first ever Michelin-style award for Thai restaurants proven to be performing to the highest standards of quality and cuisine, and is awarded by the Thai Government. We think this award sums up Nipa Thai rather nicely. What's cooking? Kai Haw Bai Toey - deep fried marinated chicken in pandanus leaves, Kaeng Kiew Warn Kai - chicken in green curry soup, also recommended the Nipa platter - a selection of the chef's special Thai starters.

What can I say about Nipa Thai that is not superlative? The answer is nothing. It is simply superb. The spring rolls were as always crispy but also with a taste that makes your hair stand on end, it is just so perfect. And as for the soft-shell crab, well world beating is the best description. But it is the wonderful smiling and attentive staff which really made the evening with the best Maitre D'Hotel in London and a wonderful head waitress. As always, the dinner that made my week.

About the restaurant
Chef Sebby Holmes launched Farang back in 2016 after trading at street food markets throughout London. A year later he took up temporary residency in Farang's current home in Highbury & Islington. After excellent reviews, he took on the space permanently after his step-father retired and since, has gone from strength to strength.
Farang was recently inducted into the National Restaurant Awards top 100 and awarded a MICHELIN Bib Gourmand, which we have kept four years running. We also received the Thai select award from the UK Thai Embassy which certifies authenticity and the freshness of our ingredients.
We’re a young team of enthusiastic individuals, who over the last few years have bought our passion and skills to the table.
Parties of six and larger, kindly contact the restaurant directly for reservations. These larger groups will be offered the shared feasting menu only and a deposit of £10 per head needs to be taken to confirm the booking, which will be deducted from your bill.

Incredible food, so full of flavour. We had the feasting menu and really liked every dish. The only thing could make the evening better is if they had mango sticky rice on the menu!

Food was amazing and the staff were very helpful. I had dropped my ring and they went out of their way to help me find it. Restaurant had a great atmosphere, only thing that was off putting was the endless stream of Deliveroo drivers coming in to collect deliveries.

About the restaurant
One of a family of worldwide restaurants, London’s Patara restaurant brings sophisticated Thai dining to Soho’s Greek Street. Tastefully decorated with plenty of atmosphere thanks to subdued lighting, huge pots of orchids, flickering candles, silk-covered banquettes and Thai figurines inlaid with glass mosaic tiles, it’s ideal for a romantic dinner for two. The Patara kitchen is ambitious, producing excellent creations of classic Thai cuisine like tom yum goong soup; beef with green curry and;, of course, pad Thai noodles. The service is renowned for its excellence and the wine list begins at a reasonably-priced level. Someone in the kitchen has an eye for beauty, too, because at Patara restaurant each dish is exquisitely arranged to delight your eye as well as your palate. Patara Thai restaurant is a haven from Soho’s scruffiness; a glamorous, romantic, authentic, professional spot for an excellent dining experience.

I love the food - it is always excellent. The service is consistently good also. Not the restaurant’s fault, but it was virtually empty so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere. In terms of food and service through, first class

About the restaurant
"Patara" Fine Thai Cuisine is an up-scale dining concept serving a contemporary Thai cuisine, maintaining the authentic flavours of Thai culinary excellence. Over the years, the Patara restaurants have garnered widespread acceptance abroad and helped to promote the art of Thai cuisine. The first Patara is established in London at Fulham Road in 1990, then six years later, 1996, the second Patara was open at Beauchamp Place, followed by 3rd Patara at Maddox Street in 2002. The 4th Patara at Soho was open and become a flagship of Patara, receiving great reviews from all top UK media.
Patara, which translates as gracious lady, derives its inspiration from Khun Patara Sila-On who, for the past 30 years as a restaurateur, has brought her warm, contemporary interpretation of Thai hospitality to Patara Fine Thai Cuisine in London, Geneva and Vienna.

About the restaurant
With its chic décor and passion for real Thai food, the Patara restaurant chain remains popular with London’s discerning foodies. This branch on Maddox Street near Oxford Circus is ideal for low-key lunches, post-shopping refuels and cosy dinner dates before a night out in nearby Soho. In the Patara kitchen, a team of expert chefs use traditional recipes and ingredients to create familiar Thai cuisine favourites like tom yum gai, fragrant green curry and pad Thai noodles. But there are some innovative creations coming out of the kitchen too. We recommend trying some of their excellent seafood dishes like grilled tiger prawns with lemongrass and lime dressing. Patara’s dining room is equally impressive with wooden wall carvings, brown leather banquettes and bundles of bamboo, creating a stylish but unpretentious setting perfect for any occasion.

About the restaurant
Standing proudly on Wimbledon High Street, our seventh Patara combines art and craft to give a deceptively spacious feel to the interior. Clean lines are married to detailing which draws inspiration from the intricacies of Thai carving and three distinct spaces in which diners can enjoy themselves: the 80-cover restaurant itself, 50-seat outdoor terrace and casual lunchtime Yum Bar. Serving a mix of stunningly authentic and playfully modern dishes, Patara Wimbledon brings all the best aspects of Thailand to SW19.

We chose the special menu based mainly on fish dishes. Although fairly expensive based on a set price per person the variety of dishes, presenatation, and cooking were of a very high standard and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this restauarant for its food service and atmosphere. Thank you for an excellent lunch.

Great experience the only downside was I had the seat by the door and everytime someone came in when the door closed the whole seat vibrated.

About the restaurant
Looking out over one of London’s most famous landmarks, the flagship branch of Thai Square is a great choice for lunch or dinner near Trafalgar Square. Formerly the impressive Norwegian embassy, Thai Square is a seriously spacious venue full of traditional artefacts, heavy wooden doors and sprays of exotic flowers – perfect for laid-back lunches with friends and cosy romantic dinners. And when tourists invariably tumble in by chance, they are rewarded, as you will be, with excellent Thai cuisine. Thai Square’s authentic menu is full of familiar favourites like fiery tom yum soup, fragrant green chicken curry and chargrilled duck breast with tamarind sauce. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice with delicious dishes like aubergine and shiitake mushrooms stir-fried with sweet basil and garlic. At the weekend, the club downstairs is open until 3am – perfect for diners who want to dance the night away in style.
