Sri Suwoon Thai restaurant is one of the hidden gems of London's Victoria and Pimlico and just a short stroll from Victoria tube. The restaurant is found down a quiet side street between Victoria Station and the river. With bright
white walls, bold graphic photography and international music, the ambience is young and cool. Chef/patron Pat
has created a menu that offers all your favourite Thai classics as well as a few more modern dishes as well, and the menu changes from time to time to reflect the freshest produce available each season. The short, affordable wine list has been selected to complement the Thai flavours and the staff are keen and helpful. Sri Suwoon is one to try.

Great ambiance and service, unfortunately the food just is not up to standard compared to the numerous good quality thai places out there. Nice but not great.

This was a great find. very good thai food, friendly staff and reasonably price. The wine by the glass however was way overpriced over £10 for a small glass is quite extortionate. We would definitely go there again.

When we first went into the restaurant, we were a bit dubious as it was located on its own, no other restaurants were about and it was really quiet inside. However, the food was brilliant and the staff were so accomodating and helpful. They substituted some vegetables for my friend and made my dish more spicy upon my request. I was also pleasantly surprised how reasonably priced the whole meal was. Will definately be returning and have recommended it to friends who work closeby.

Great service, good hospitality. Manager really working hard.
Food served fast. I liked the fact that the slat content was low in the food which really doesn’t always make you taste the food, especially if it’s been also made really mild for a Thai. I didn’t feel the spices which I guess most customers aren’t looking for real spicy authentic Thai. Nonetheless the place was good because of the attentiveness of the staff and the service.

Loved everything about this restaurant from the service to the food. Came on a Tuesday night for a date night with my husband. We made a reservation however, it being a Tuesday night I don't think it was necessary. The atmosphere is quaint and has a romantic feel to it especially with the dim lighting which we liked. There were a couple of large parties which made for a very loud noise level but it did not bother us. The sampler appetizer was our favorite thing since it had a little of everything. The ribs in the sampler stuck out in flavor and I wish I ordered them for my entree. We also ordered tamarind duck with a side of fried rice and shrimp pad Thai. Everything was great and we left satisfied and stuffed.

We booked a table for four for 2.00 pm on a Friday assuming the restaurant would be quite busy. unfortunately we were the only customers and the ambiance was therefore zero.
However the food was excellent and the service very good. I am sure when the restaurant is better frequented the atmosphere would be fine. All four of us would certainly recommend the restaurant based on the quality of the food and the value for money.

We arrived for a pre theatre dinner, and were pleasantly greeted. Had our pick of tables as we were eating embarrassingly early! We had a gorgeous bottle of the Cloud Factory sauvignon blanc. Highly recommend! The starters arrived really quickly - tom kah goong and tempura chili prawns. Both were delicious! We then had chicken red curry and chicken mussaman curry, and a shared pad thai. Food overall was very good, but the pad thai was somewhat disappointing. Not the best we've ever had. Nevertheless, we would certainly return if we found ourselves in the area. Service was swift and attentive.

After a few years absence, it was a delight to return to Sri Sawoon, where once again our little group enjoyed the same relaxed atmosphere, friendly and courteous service and delicious food. Sri Sawoon succeeds because you have to know it is there, in the quiet part of Victoria/Pimlico known to the local residents and their friends, away from the main tourist trails.

Excellent! I've been three times now and the food is always brilliant. The service is good too. And on top of this, it's also reasonably priced, which is amazing for a small Thai restaurant in the heart of Pimlico. I cannot recommend Sri Suwoon enough.

This was my first visit and I definitely want to go back. I had the crispy duck pancakes and a Thai green curry and they were delicious - the curry was one of the best I've had. The wine was good and it is all reasonably priced. Great ambience and service. Loved it.

The venue was cute, in a quiet part of Victoria so good for a catch up with my friend. The food was not to my liking. I usually really like Thai food, but the food tasted more like Chinese and not very flavourful. Decently priced.

Over the years I have developed a passion for Sri Suwoon which re-ignites every time I vist.
Fine varied menu, food beautifully prepared, service and general atmosphere enchanting.
Although it is a neighbourhood gem, I have brought friends from all over the globe to eat here, none of whom have ever expressed less than complete delight with the experience.

Bit too quiet for a lunch time (Thursday lunch time). With only 1 other table occupied it made you feel self conscious having a conversation. Food was a bit average with very little spice. The green curry was really just chicken in coconut milk. Service was fine. Wouldn't return at lunch. Maybe it's a bit of an evening place?

After many 5 stars reviews, I had a high expectation on Sri Suwoon. I’m not Thai but I grew up in Asia and travelled to Bangkok many times, it’s not the taste I had in Bangkok or other Thai restaurants in Asian countries. It doesn’t matter whether it’s authentic or not as long as it tastes good, unfortunately I didn’t satisfy with the food quality, sorry but no next time.
