Excellent service, was sat down promptly and the menu had a large variety. The decor was impressive and unique, and would recommend the food. Served by Floriana.

Great food. Great atmosphere! And most of all great service from Luigi and Floriana in particular. The restaurant is the less busier of them all and is very casual and swarve all at once. You definitely will enjoy the food and have a great time...More

Its a good restaurant. However surprised no Pork dishes in the Menu. When asked they said because it is owned by Middle Eastern owners. It is a shame that in a free city like London a Thai restaurant decide on Middle Eastern rules.

Is my 3rd time here and has become my favorite Thai restaurant in London. The reason I prefer the one at Leicester Square is because is less crowed which mean easier to find a place and not so noisy, plus the service is excellent. Joan...More
