Wild Rice London
What a fantastic new spot in soho! A great little gem with outstanding tasting food and lovely service.
Struggled to decide what to have but everything was so good and I can’t wait to go back and try everything else on the menu!
Random choice for pre-theatre food but excellent!! The Tom kha soup was a particular highlight and the food came quickly with efficient and friendly serving staff.
Went back for the second time to try new dishes. The avocado salad and Yentafo did not disappoint. Friendly staff, cool ambience. Portions were smaller than I thought but I believe it’s how authentic Thai cuisine should be and this way I got to try more stuff! Tried one if their specialty cocktails and would definitely go back once the full underground bar is open! Overall good experience - among many Thai restaurants in London, this place is way up on thr list!
Fresh Thai food with a twist unlike other Thai places out there. We ordered the calamari which I was beautifully and lightly coated in rice flour. The crispy mushroom salad was to die for and the crispy fried chicken had just the right amount of colour and spice. Service was very friendly and courteous - the staff had a great sense of humour. The restaurant is cosy and the dark wood lanterns is a nice touch. We were so stuffed but in a great way. Will definitely be back to try out the rest of the menu!
A truly outstanding place! We arrived 20 minutes late and the staff were really helpful. The highlight of the night must be the tofu kaprow, goi pla and avocado salad! The sauces were out of this world. All of them tasted really clean, unlike the usual Thai food we’ve had. The staff said they use sashimi grade fishes for their raw dishes and we could definitely tell! The eggs are also free range. What’s not to love about this place!
My friends and I had a very nice lunch at Wild Rice during it's first few weeks of being open. It was pretty quiet when we were dining, the owner Michael was very attentive, friendly, helpful and open to feedback on their menu and service. Our favourite dishes were the fried chicken and salmon curry. Food isn't very spicy so it would suit most people's tastebuds. The restaurant has a lot of potential and we're excited to try out the new bar that is expected to open downstairs next year.
We tried both the fried tofu dishes and they were both incredible!! The mushroom salad and chilli fried rice were also amazing. Everything was so good. Any wait to go back!!
Went here for dinner last night, as it's very local to work. Had a fantastic meal with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Every dish we tried was outstanding, interesting and well presented. Particularly recommend some of the tofu dishes. Great place for a catch-up with friends, a drink and a tasty meal. And excellent value too
Bringing Thai food to London - this place does exactly that. The quality of the food is so fresh and the potion size is extremely generous. Blown away by the different flavours. Highly recommend this place if you’re looking to excite your taste buds.
Atmosphere is fun and lively. The staff are so welcoming and tentative to your needs. Pan and Mike who own/run the restaurant are brilliant hosts and really go out of their way to make the dinning experience something to remember.
I’ll be definitely going back and already recommended it to my friends and family!
Portions seemed on the small side. Granted some of the menu consists of small plates, but for the price per plate I'd expect more effort, for example the tofu dishes were just two fried slices with sauce.
Mains were served on very small plates which made it had to manoeuvre food around with it falling off the plate.
Food tasted fresh and nicely balanced/seasoned.
I ordered Ginger Ale to drink and was served a comically small drinks mixer can (the 150ml ones) which even with ice only filled half my glass. I questioned this and the waiter just shrugged. I was charged £3.50 for the can.
OK food; a bit overpriced. BBQ chicken sauce was good but there was a slightly odd aftertaste or undertaste to the meat? The Pad Ped was described in the menu as "fiery... hot and spicy" but was mild - our Pad Ped contained green beans which isn't listed in the menu description - a bit confusing. The Massaman curry was listed as containing peanuts - usually Massaman curries (one of my favourite Thai dishes; I used to live in a Thai community and also love visiting Thailand) contain whole or split peanuts or cashews. I couldn't find any nuts in the curry but was told they are ground into the sauce (?).
Some teething problems with seating and reservations - but very friendly and courteous staff and a nice atmosphere. Don't over order on starters - we did and couldn't finish our mains.
