Decorated with Oriental antiques, fresh flowers and moody lamps, this little gem of a neighbourhood Thai restaurant in Osterley is a snug and friendly venue perfect for cosy evening meals. Tiger Lily used to trade as a Chinese restaurant called Osterley Cottage, but the space has been recently revamped into a stylish Eastern fusion eatery where the Thai-led menu has a spicy Chinese twist. The atmosphere here is buzzy yet unintrusive, and the smooth service and authentic fare make for a relaxed night out. Favourite dishes at Tiger Lily include the salt and pepper squid; the crispy aromatic duck pancakes with Hoi Sin sauce; and the Gaeng Massaman curry with potatoes, beef, vegetables and cashews.

Always great food - a little noisy if dining early evening as small children are running around and not restrained by parents. Maybe an area can be set aside for kids.

Overall a great night for my sons birthday. Service was attentive, found was delicious. I’m vegan so asked for food to be adapted. I was a bit nervous as the person I spoke to (possibly manager)insisted I was vegetarian not Vegan even after I explained the difference. Maybe the staff need to learn the difference between vegan and vegetarian. Other than that hurdle, the manager the informed serving staff what I could/couldn’t eat. I’m just hoping that vegan and not vegetarian was relayed to the kitchen and in saying that, I hope the chefs knew what vegan is and adhered to it.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would definitely return soon

I was sold out of date orange juice which I only noticed after ordering it 3 times. When I asked for all orange juice that I ordered to be removed from the bill they only agreed to remove one, justifying it by saying that it was only out of date by a few days which is completely unacceptable.

Absolutely disgusted. It was my birthday and the first time we had gone after friends and colleagues recommendation. We left the place without eating. They had a table for 2 literally at the entrance and where the till was. If u are a couple or going as a pair - PLEASE DO NOT GO!!!!. You will be left terribly disappointed, the seating arrangement was appalling. The staffs were very rude. We had travelled a far distance, but ended up going to Mango tree in Belgravia, far better with beautiful ambience. DO NOT GO TO TIGER LILLY................

I have always been a fan of Indo-Thai food and Tiger Lily always been my first choice. But the last visit was a bit of turn-off. We order Satay Gai and that was a bit hard to eat. The Red Thai Curry was a bit watery then usual. Since, it was afternoon, the ambience was not in its usual form. So overall thought it wasn't value for money.

Great atmosphere, excellent flavours. Fantastic service. Didn't give all 5 stars because portion sizes were too small to my liking.

First visit to Tiger Lily and the service was really great as I am disabled and had to phone ahead to let the manager know, so I could get the right seating area. Upon arriving I was greeted straight away and was welcomed. The only issue I had was we were placed in the back of the restaurant. I had reserved a table. The food was delicious and we ordered a few dishes to share.
Plenty of food between two people. Highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends. Must book as it was quite busy.

Does not know what it is. Bar? Nighclub? Restaurant? Very loud music made conversation impossible. The waitress did everything possible to make matters right but my colleagues were deeply upset by the experience. They only meet once a year from all over Europe. Food was ok but overpriced. The restaurant has gone downhill from when we last visited.

The food was average and the service was non existence. We used to regularly visit restaurant when it was under a different name. Food was great and customer service was excellence then. This has definitely changed. Will not be going back.

Beautiful restaurant with super service. I was fasting and the waiters prepared dates for me to break my fast and came and told me when it was time. Food is delicious. I had my birthday dinner here a few months ago too!

This quiet little restaurant is a gem of a find, I have already booked our next visit with more friends. We had the lamb chops as a starter it melts in your mouth, delicious, it was sooo good I tried to replicate it the next day...my lamb was no way near as delicious as tiger Lily's. I wish I had ordered a few more of those lamb chops!!
We also had the scrumptious papaya salad, beef stir fry, thai green curry, pad thai and some wine!! It was a great meal, great service. Can't wait to go back!

We were looking for a nice restaurant near Heathrow Airport where we could meet some friends arriving from abroad. Tiger Lily looked the perfect choice. The restaurant certainly lived up to our expectations. Parking was freely available. The décor was nice and the service excellent. There was plenty of lovely food. Highly recommended.
