For the asian lovers, a must go place if you like very hot and spicy asian food. Dishes sizes are big (share if you'd like!). I tend to go to the cod fish. Hot!

A hidden gem on the first floor of the Lancaster Hotel in Bayswater. Simply the best Thai meal we have ever experienced. Went for my wife's birthday with a couple of friends, not really knowing what to expect. The food quality, presentation and combination of...More

Nipa Thai is located in the Lancaster Hotel but dont let that put you off - this is classic thai at its best. The restaurant has Thai serving staff and cooks and the menu is extensive from classics such as Massaman to dumpling prawns. There...More

The location (in a hotel) is a little obscure and difficult to find but efforts to do so are rewarded by an excellent quality of food, delivered with an understated but very efficient service. The menu is very good. Not too exhaustive with a good...More

Friendly welcome, which you can expect from the most friendly people around the world (the Thai people). Difficult to find as there were some roads blocked. The restaurant is in a hotel at the first floor. Took the different appetizers to share with my colleague....More

I would call it "business casual". Jeans and a t shirt would be a little underdressed!

One of only 15 UK restaurants recognised by the Thai government for its quality and cuisine, Nipa wears its heritage proudly on its sleeve. The teak-panelled interior is inspired by its sister restaurant in Bangkok, with a profusion of orchids that feel strangely at home in their first floor setting in the Lancaster Hotel overlooking the Italian Fountains of Hyde Park. Three set menus and the extensive à la carte offer a mouthwatering range of intense Thai flavours, mixing traditional dishes of central Thailand with regional specialities.
