Generally very good food, but not sure if it is a bit pricey. Definitely worth a treat once a month or so.

I went to GrabThai for lunch a couple of days ago. The food was great and has an authentic taste. One of my favorite Thai places to eat.

Trying to eat healthily so I ordered a squash curry on deliver. It arrived and I could not eat it as it is way too sweet - tastes like deesert. Sorry but I can't eat all that sugar. Why add sugar to savoury food? Called the restaurant and they say they add palm sugar to everything even savoury dishes. Insane.

A nice idea that kinda works. Reasonable price, definitely fast and reasonable quality. If you're in need of lunch it's worth trying. If you're after authentic Thai look elsewhere.

This place used to be good, until they changed the containers then suddenly the portion sizes slashed by half. When paying nearly £8 for a chicken massaman, I want more than four 1cm cubed pieces of chicken, not to mention a decent portion of rice, sauce etc. I won't be going here again

GrabThai used to be really quick, super tasty food and a good dose of authenticity. It's now lost its magic - trying to become a bit fancier. And underdone noodles in pad Thai are not pleasant...

I recently discovered this place and it has become my go-to lunch takeaway. just minutes away from my office. Service is really speedy and food is at great value. I always opt for the sweet and sour cashew chicken or the chilli, garlic beef. If you visit anytime between 12 and 2pm, the line will outside entrance.

This location is directly across the street from the office. I can usually get my food pretty quickly. The garlic beef is very tasty. I've had a few of the other dishes.

The food looks way better on the site then the one that I've had given, also it wasn't really nice. The "restaurant" looks like a garage so the atmosphere wasn't that great. Staff really cold and not welcoming at all.

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
