A lovely small restaurant inside a sleek London hotel. Very pricey unless you go for the Early Bird menu during the week. Delicious Thai food of very high quality.
It's the best Thai restaurant in London. The food is sensational and the staff outstanding. Love it and will definitely keep going.
It was a lovely setting and very good food. Friendly wait staff who went out of their way to wish one of our party a happy birthday with a delicious dessert plate. They were out of Thai iced tea which was surprising and a disappointment.
One of the all-time London favourites. The perfect place for a family dinner or a catch-up with a friend. The service is great, the food is fantastic and the ambiance is perfect.
The food and drink was amazing - well worth the visit for my partners birthday meal. The only thing that let the evening down was the slow service. I think a last minute table of 4-6 suddenly meant all the waiters were rushing around us moving tables together, setting the table which meant that for over 30 minutes was wasted just waiting for the dessert menu and another 30 minutes for someone to come with a credit card machine so we could pay and leave. We lost over an hour of our evening due to this.
Not the restaurants fault but open table let me book this at a time it wasn’t open. Luckily, I was meeting a client who is very relaxed and we made other plans. Could have been very awkward.
Wow. One of my best ever Thai restaurant.
Amazing service! These people love the food they are making and are proud of it. Delicious food and the wine was really good paired.
An excellent Thai restaurant with great food and service.
Very authentic Thai food served and prepared by Thai staff- very friendly and excellent food! Would come again!
One of the best Thai restaurants I have been to in London.. Excellent.
One of my favorites, a really great experience.
Great little find and the food was great! Very friend staff
Excellent food and service
Lovely flavours and good quality of food.
Booked table in the morning and upon arrival Noy the manager didn’t even know about our reservations. She kept telling me that I just booked. Also, mentioned anniversary on the booking but no acknowledgement and nothing offered. She speaks very loud and all people in the restaurant looking at us, which made it quite embarrassing as if it was our fault. She needs lots of customer service training. She took our payment and didn’t even ask, if we enjoyed our dinner.
Our special dinner / evening ruined by 1 person.
Delicioso!!!!!! Hermoso lugar
Excellent food, nice ambience, service variable and slightly taciturn
We have the good fortune of experiencing very good authentic Thai cuisine in the USA, so this experience, while lovely in some areas didn’t meet our expectations for flavor or unique dishes. We sampled 4 different things and all but one was too sweet.
Brilliant food, great location, friendly staff. Would highly recommend
We had a lovely dinner at Nipa Thai. Great authentic Thai food along with very good service.
Great great food. Enjoyed the ambiance and the people serving were very friendly!
Delicious authentic Thai food. We had one of the set menus - excellent value and plenty of variety. The Green curry was exceptional and the Coconut ice cream was delicious. The service is friendly and professional - overall a fantastic experience. Can’t wait to go back.
Really tricky to review. Evening of two parts. First part just perfect. Second part from hell, as they accommodated very large and joyful private function in the middle of the restaurant. I have seen other guest smoking places, leaving early etc. You just can't have somebody joyful private party not in the function room, but in the middle of 5 star restaurant. Just can't!
Fabulous food and exceptional service. The ambience is relaxing which makes you want to just relax, and stay all evening!
Impeccable service and excellent food. Very generous portions! Cannot wait to visit again!
Food was great
That was a great experience. We took one of the menu (6 courses) with wines matching.
That was spicy, tasty, yummy. We were really happy by the selection of the dishes and interested by the wines. A special mention to the red wine from Thailand, Monsoon Valley Shiraz.
We will come back for sure.
Very slow service!
We really appreciated the elegance. We had the tasing menu, and loved the soup.
Food was excellent. Service took a bit too long. Staff was very friendly and professional.
The venue is pleasant enough but the service is absolutely horrific. Not because the servers aren’t very pleasant - they are, and are clearly doing their best. But the restaurant is hugely understaffed and the kitchen is either too small or incompetent. The food is OK - slightly better than a Busaba or standard Thai place anywhere else in London, and absolutely not worth making an effort for. Don’t waste your time...literally.
I took my mother there for her 80th birthday dinner - having made a note of that on the booking. First we had to wait 15 minutes just for someone to come and seat us. Food orders took another 25 minutes. We arrived at 8:00 pm. The first food arrived at 9:00 pm. The waitress was very sweet and very apologetic but there was absolutely no consideration or care given. Keep in mind that the restaurant was half-empty at this point.
I mentioned to one of the two maitre’d-types that it was meant to be a special dinner as indicated on the reservation and that we’d like to get something extra for my mother (of course we’d pay for it) and we got absolutely nothing - not even an acknowledgment or an excuse. Instead we got slightly-above-average Thai food, fairly Westernised and served at an absolutely glacial pace. Would never go back. They ruined a special event and I’m amazed that any of the reviews below have had a positive experience.
Outstanding, sometimes as a solo buisness traveler it feels awkward but this was great service and food.
Great food, as always! Limited menu but fantastic flavours.
This is our third visit as we love the place. The food is so fresh and tasty and never fails to deliver.
The staff are so welcoming, friendly and hard working, ensuring that your experience at Nipa Thai is exceptional and memorable.
Cheers again and see you on our next visit to London
9 years ago we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Nipa Thai. It was fantastic. We went again 2 day's later.
After 9 years we went back again for our anniversary. Same quality, same great taste.
Real Tai food. Fantastic!
We had a wonderful experience here. The food was amazing. We had by far the best thai food here. The desert was spectacular as well. The service was amazing and they made my wife's birthday special. We will definitely visit again.
Starters were poor, main course was sensational. Wine was nice and service couldn’t really fault.
Just skip the starter and go for mains
Service was slow. Felt that waiters were not properly trained. Food bordered on Chinese. When asked about sticky rice and mango, was told it is not in season (mango is sold everywhere in supermarkets). Wanted to try a true Thai restaurant. I guess I made the wrong choice. That said, this is my personal opinion as I am very familiar with and fond of Thai food. Maybe their menu is adjusted to fit the English taste?
