Having eaten a couple of times a year for three years we went again tonight. The new menu had dropped all of the previous dishes which worried me but we pushed on. The server was charming and told me the management had changed. There is...More

This used to be one of the only authentic and simple Thais in London. It changed management earlier this year and it is now very poor. It makes only small tourist-tasting dishes at exaggerated prices. We had to ask for more food because the portions...More

This place used to be amazing but the recently introduced new menu and new chef is bad news. This formerly outstanding place has gone from vibrant, exciting, authentic food to bog standard hight street Thai.  All the great stuff on the menu is gone... No...More

The Heron has a cozy and welcoming atmosphere with great English character. A big fire place to warm you up on cool English days, with friendly staff and the best Thai food in London. Will eat here everytime I come to London.

Another returning patron. We live around the corner and always felt lucky to have the best Thai place in London at our door step. The new place simply doesn't compare. Does anyone know where the old team went? They were never big into advertising or...More

This was probably the worst Thai food I have ever had. What a gem this place used to be. Under the new ownership it is a complete disaster. I have never eaten savoury food sweeter than this. What a tragedy.

Response from BigJammer | Reviewed this property |
The Heron is situated at the base of a block of apartments. However I am pretty sure they go up to floor 8 or 9, certainly not 18 floors. I would be wary of the listing. Check out google street view to see for yourself.
