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.

The food was lovely. We had 4 mains between 3 of us, plus 2 starters which was plenty.
The fresh salads were excellent as long as you like a lot of heat.
A bit slow to serve which was a little surprising as it wasn’t full.

Great service, great atmosphere and great food! We ate here before going to the theatre and the restaurant was a stone throw away from the Prince of Wales theatre. The food was lovely and was good value for money. I’d 100000% eat here again!

Bit disappointed that booked for 5pm and it was closed staff member came and unlocked door asked if I had an online booking dwhich I confirmed then asked my bagel do have that too then told good a comeback in 15 mins and it would be open !! Not a great start but once in the beer was good and cold I had the chicken Penang and it did say on the menu it was mild so even which slices off chilli it was indeed mild so for me a would like a little heat but other than that is was good

Wonderful Thai dishes! Great for dinner before a night at the theater. We enjoyed Les Miserables, which was less than a block away. Pad Thai was delicious.

We were there on a Sunday afternoon as part of my son's 30th Birthday celebration. The staff were very nice ,however not enough of them! The service was a bit slow but it wasn't that annoying. There was no problem with us bringing birthday balloons and cake and the staff even dimmed the lights and brought the cake out when I asked😁.No charge for bringing our own cake!!! Apparently some restaurants do that😏Overall a nice experience. Thank-you .We'll visit again.

Food was fine however the service was very disappointing - we were one of a number of tables who had to ask for our order to be taken and ask repeatedly to pay the bill. Majority of waiting staff were operating a ''head-down'' policy where they were not engaging with any diners unless they were explicitly called or waved down. The restaurant was not very busy while there was a large number of staff in situ, so was quite disappointed with this.

Fabulous fresh authentic Thai food. Excellent range of choice and food cooked to perfection
I recently attended Thai Tho as a previously undiscovered venue for a Business Lunch.

The service let the place down a bit sadly, with only 1 waitress looking after the 5 tables including our 5 person table it meant a slightly longer wait inbetween courses however it was early Jan and I presume there would normally be more help.

I can't express enough how well cooked and delicious the food was and I am a major lover of Thai food so the standards are pretty high. I would definitely recommend trying this place out. I'll certainly be back.

This place has a very lively vibe, with lots of Thai customers. The cocktails are nice and the staff are really friendly and charming. It does NOT have the feeling of the tired west end tourist trap. The food is standard Thai fare but well executed and tasty. I would definitely go there again.

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

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.
