Located just off of Shaftesbury Avenue in London's theatre district, Thai Tho is a much-loved Thai restaurant known for its high quality cuisine, high-profile clientele and super friendly service. Situated on Rupert Street, Thai Tho is ideal for pre-theatre snacks and post-theatre meals with friends, and it's also a popular spot for business lunching and after-work cocktails with colleagues. The staff at Thai Tho are particular with their produce, and ingredients are flown fresh from Thailand each week. Pad Thai fans and curry junkies will adore this restaurant, and we love the red duck curry with pineapple, lychees and coconut rice, and the deep-fried salmon in a sweet and sour sauce.

Food was more like Chinese than Thai and was poor quality. Limited wine list. We ate downstairs which is dark and lacked atmosphere. Waiters were unable to communicate properly. My friend and I were the only customers in the restaurant so need not have booked! Had TV on! Not a. Ice experience and wouldn't recommend

Just opposite the Adelphi theatre where we had booked a show. Great choice of food and we were not disappointed with anything.
Great value, not too busy and good service.

I wasn't expecting much for a restaurant just off Shaftsbury Avenue but I was really surprised by the quality and taste of the food, especially considering the very reasonable prices for that part of the West End. Service was friendly and well balanced (immediately there to help or to take an order but not over-attentive). Food arrived promptly and was of very good quality. Very happy to go back there

I took my wife to Thai Tho for her birthday as the pictures on the website gave the impression of a cool, modern looking place that offered great Thai food.

What we got was a fairly average looking place that served standard Thai that I could easily get from local take away.

Nothing special yet nothing poor either.

Thailand may be described as the land of smiles - Thai Tho Soho certainly can't. We have been here many times and food is fairly consistently good, however service on this occasion was well below par. The two ladies on duty barely looked at us when ordering and their attitude and lack of friendliness really needs to be addressed. It resembled what you'd expect in nearby Chinatown, but should not be accepted in a Thai restaurant of this standard. Well done to the kitchen though.

The service was really slow and very unfriendly. Food was good but not enough to overcome the poor service.

This restaurant is amazingly central in Soho - great for pre/post theatre with good food at a reasonable cost given the location. It was very quiet until around 6.15pm and then got really busy, so it's worth booking ahead. The restaurant is upstairs, we had a seat by the window where you could see the buzz of soho.

Went here for valentines day dinner with my wonderful wife .
Nice cosy restaurant with good ambience.
Food was good and hot and staff left you alone without the harassment to place your next order or asking if you've finished.
Would go back again and would recommend the visit.

My friend and I got earlier that our reservation time, since it was quiet , there was no problem to get a table.
Our server took our order , and 20 minutes pasted and another server came by to asked us what we have ordered, food took quite a while.
The food was excellent the service wasn't , and top of that and the time of paying the bill a 20% tip was included on the bill.
When she talk to our server , she said it was optional , it didn't seem to be that way , that's ilegal .
Overall , good food but terrible service and beware of the final bill, you might pay the 20% of your bill , that according to then was optional.

Our 1st visit was a very busy evening at Thai Tho where the staff were catering to another booking they had of 30+ people. Sadly our service completely fell by the way side as a result, it took an hour for our 2 plates of food to arrive and one of the dishes was cold.
These things happen, however i do wish the staff had forewarned us better with what was going on. If we had dined an hour later we probably would have had a better experience.
The hot meal was good.

Food was excellent and the staff were very friendly although we had to chase them on our drinks and some of our dishes a couple of times. A couple of our dishes never turned up so we had to ask for them to be removed from the bill, but as we'd had an enjoyable evening overall this didn't spoil our experience.

Make sure you go upstairs, not into the restaurant downstairs which is a completely different establishment. Fast service, plenty of variety on the menu and friendly, efficient service. Great location too!

My partner and I, booked Thai Tho, based on the great reviews and reasonable price for food. As we entered the main entrance we began to tell the waiter we had a booking, only to be interrupted and placed on a dirty table in the front of the bar. He then left, and came back, cleaned the table and dropped off menus, without acknowledging us nor speaking. He then returned behind the bar, and used his phone. We felt very awkward and unsure if we were welcome, attempted to make eye contact with the waiter, eventually gave up, and we left. This was so disappointing, as thai is our favourite cuisine. And being new London, this wasn't the greatest start particularly in such an upbeat and renowned area.
