Been here twice. I like their homecooked style dishes. Service is fast. My favourite is the roasted duck red curry and pad thai. Spicyness here isn't all that bad when compared to other Thai places I've been to. About 25£ per person but we ordered a lot of food!

This is a lovely family run business with a long tradition and great and affordable Thai food. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food had always been very nice. We have been at least 10 times. When it is not too busy as for the papaya salad which is not on the menu. The food is authentic Thai.

Tried their lunch offering. Very disappointing. Mostly it was poor imitations of chinese dishes. Service was slow. Drinks menu is very limited. Restaurant was cramped. Little to bring me back except the price.

Great Thai food served with a smile. Thai charm and friendliness thrown in - a great find. And Chang beer too!

My friend and I recently stumbled upon this authentic family-owned Thai restaurant in the middle of Soho. The food was excellent, and servers (who all seemed related) were friendly and helpful. The ambience is your basic Asian style....but go for the food, it is fantastic!!

If you are visiting London, this is the place to go. Have been coming here for over 10 years. I always bring friends here who are visiting from other countries and everyone loves the food. Family owned restaurant and service fantastic. I suggest you call to make reservations if you plan on visiting on a weekend night.

We took my sister in law here as part of her birthday trip to London. The food is exactly what you'd expect in a Thai restaurant - I had Pad Ga-Prau Gai, which is my favourite dish (the 1st thing I ate when visiting Thailand) and this version didn't disappoint. It was not to Thai heat levels, but you don't... More

Had the nicest meal last night at Thai cottage. I can't stress how lovely the staff were and it was so nice to experience a proper family run restaurant. The food was so tasty and service was very prompt and friendly :) I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, especially those who love truly great food and atmosphere!

A friend and I stopped in here for dinner while on holiday. The service was friendly, the atmosphere calm and relaxed, and the food was average. We had pad Thai and dumplings. The dumplings were delicious! The pad Thai, my favorite dish, lacked some flavor but was not bad overall. I was sad that they didn't have chop sticks, but... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
