Pre/post Theatre
Located just off of Shaftesbury Avenue in London's theatre district, Thai Tho is a much-loved Thai restaurant known for its authentic Thai 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.

Bit touristy if I’m honest, food ok, staff seemed overwhelmed with how busy it was, alright for a quick stop if nowhere else to go but wouldn’t go out of my way...

Lovely little restaurant overlooking Shaftesbury Avenue, unobtrusive and polite service with a well executed food and drink menu. Good value meal in a nice setting.
Menus and tables were a little dirty upon arrival with stains leftover from previous use but otherwise restaurant seemed ok.

My husband and I had a pre-theatre meal on a Friday evening, , and although our booking was for 6pm it was already busy. The food was very good - authentic Thai cuisine at a very affordable price for central London. Service was courteous and friendly.

The food was great - and the location very convenient for a pre-theatre dinner in the Shaftesbury Avenue area. However, the restaurant was very busy and as a consequence the service for our main courses was very slow indeed and meant we had to rush to eat, then race to the theatre to get to our show on time.

Arrived at 11.30 - opening time - for a table at 11.45 on a Saturday. Only one person in the place still cleaning the floor in the downstairs area, which stank of bleach. No kitchen staff - all delayed. It was suggested we wait. Tables in the downstairs area were pushed so far into the bench seats it was impossible to get into the seats at all. Offered another table - same issue, just bigger table. No confidence that food would be available at any time. Completely underwhelming experience. Wouldn't bother going back again.

Lovely meal for Valentines weekend. Great place- right in the middle of the West End, perfect for sure seeing and the theatre.
Staff were extremely helpful and the food was delicious. Having visited Thailand last year, this was a perfect way to remember the great food!!

Good pre-theatre meal. Tempura vegetables and prawn Pad Thai both very good. Quick service. Didn’t realise there was a set meal option until we were leaving. It would have been nice to have been offered it.

Food was great. Excellent location. I only have two criticisms - 1) our two drinks took about 15 minutes to come to the table and 2) we ordered a vegetable side that never arrived. We mentioned this to the waitress but by the time it would have arrived, we would have finished our mains.

Great value, delicious food. We’d been before, years ago, and made the effort to come back. Service slightly slow but early on Friday evening that’s understandable. Definitely recommended!

Starters were lovely, pad Thai had a strange taste and the papaya salad wasn’t fresh and we sent it back.
Staff running up and down looking stressed which is not enjoyable to watch.
Nothing special in general. But it was the only one who accommodated my party of 4 at the very last minute

Very average in all respects. No better than a local take-away. Service was very patchy. Would not return.
