Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went for a quick lunch yesterday. Ordered pad thai and spring rolls. Small shop but big flavours. FAB thai street food. You guys rock and the service was so good. Front of the restaurant was smiling and inviting. When I said the food was good,...you were humble enough to pass on the compliments to the chef. The best thing i liked here was hot hot food served. I spent £40 yesterday on dinner on 1947 restaurant and I spent £14 for lunch in your place. I am a happy camper that i selected your restaurant. Will definitely return. Keep up the good work and keep up the smiling faces in the front of the restaurant.More

Tried their prawn pad thai. It's pretty authentic and at 9.50 pounds it's not unreasonable given generally higher inner London prices. The noodle, egg and chicken were well cooked although they could have done with just a little more 'wok he'. The portion was pretty...generous and filled me up easily. Nice to have it on the spot - they have limited seating. The one slight tinge of disappointment was that the prawns were very lacking in taste - not sure if that is the case all the time. Staff are very friendly and if I'm in the vicinity again I'd probably try their duck krapow. Bit of a shame that they don't offer any traditional Thai desserts.More

I'm very passionate about Thai food. I have traveled a lot in Thailand, have Thai friends, and cook Thai food almost exclusively at home so I feel like I know what decent Thai should taste like and this isn't it. I ordered krapow. I make...this at home regularly, almost every week, because it's one of my favourites. It's supposed to be a spicy/garlicky stir fry of chopped or minced meat (normally pork or chicken) and stirred through with plenty of Thai basil to which the dish gives its name. It's firey and rich with soy, oyster, and fish sauce. It's a wonderful symphony of heat and flavor. This wasn't. What I got served was a bland stewed mince beef on top of rice. I added a lot of chilli but it still wasn't spicy. It was cheap, I'll give it that. As simply food it was ok. As Thai food it's an insult. The service was friendly and fast. The place looked clean. There are a couple of seats here but it's mostly geared toward take away. It's a shame this seems toned down for Western tastes and is less than it could be by using cheap ingredients.More

I went to this place following a recommendation as I was in the area and wanted to pick up something for dinner. It was fine, nothing special and I wouldnt go out of my way to get a take away from here

Small place catering to office lunch crowd. No place to stand and look at the menu and one rushed to choose quickly. Had beef with noodles. Food was fine and one bowl was enough to share and be full

FAB Thai street food shop is on a corner street in Shoreditch/Old street area, serving Thai dishes. The menu has chicken and pork dishes, not a lot of choice though on the menu. The vegetarian options are a put down, just two on the list...I’m afraid. The premises is tidy and looks like the management are keen on maintenance. In fact, you can peek a look inside the kitchen too, it’s kinda semi-open. The service is quick and the staff are very friendlyMore

Reasonable price and tasty dishes (stir fry and curries) over rice or noodles. Between £7-8 is not bad. Decent serve. Not as authentic Thai as I would love but it’s good by London standard for S-East Asia food.

I was very happy with my large bowl of chicken curry with noodles (or rice as I’ve had both). £6.95 for a large bowl; very tasty and as spicy as you want with free extra fresh chilli. Very friendly staff. A small building, so not...really aimed at staying there to eat, but the is a stand up bench down one wall to use. 6 meals gets you a free one next time, using their consumer card.More

Popped in for a takeaway lunch - service quick, food hot and great quality. Usually with these types of takeaway you get a container of 90% rice, but this was a generous portion of chicken curry without the usual mountain of rice
