I've had lunch here with friends several times and have been very pleased with the food quality, friendly service, and the great value lunch prices. My lunches have ranged from quick, need to get in & out (< 30 min), to long & leisurely catch ups (2 hours) with friends. The service has been great every time regardless of how... More

Had a nice evening here. Food was good, and quite standard Thai offering. Very friendly but slow service, considering there weren't many people in here. Menu is extensive so everyone should find something they want. Particularly enjoyed the pad thai!

I've been to Hilltribe a few times now and though it time to review it. The food is Thai and I normally go there on the odd day for lunch. They have a £5 lunch menu which offers a variety of Thai food. Being Richmond this is one of the cheapest places to get a good lunch in a restaurant.... More

I hadn't managed to return to Richmond to sample Hilltribe's menu for the past couple of years, but on suggesting the restaurant to a local friend (who had not previously been there), we both enjoyed a wonderful meal at a very affordable price. Our selection of mixed Thai dumplings was really delicious, as was her soft-shell crab dish. Indeed, that... More

Despite not booking and arriving fairly late one Saturday night, the staff were warm and freindly. Restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere with usual Thai decor. The menu is pretty much standard fare. All the food tasted fresh and authentic. Potrion size was about right. Everything was very tasty. A few people mention the food is great value. It's not...

Hilltribe is a super little Thai restaurant in Richmond and is surprisingly a cheap eat. The lunch menu is great value (you can get a dish & glass of wine for £10). I go here regularly with work colleagues and it never fails to disappoint. The service is lovely and attentive while being very polite. The interiors are really welcoming,... More

Went to hilltribe on Tuesday evening so service was very quick and all round good. Ordered Tofu in one of the mains and only received a couple of pieces and so I would recommend that you ask for a good serving! Also, watch out for the small chopped up pieces of lemongrass in some of the chicken dishes as they're... More

I called up and booked on a Saturday night and they got us in within half an hour. The service was excellent from point of entry. There were 4 of us and we chose option B from the set menu section. The food was excellent and came out quickly. We felt bad that we could not eat all that was... More
