“Delicious food and brilliant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

Went to Thai Cafe and Restaurant before going to Wicked. Delicious meal. Came out quickly which was good and the food was very tasty. The service was very good. I left my bag at the table when we left without realising and a waiter chased us quite a way down the road to return it. Would highly recommend! Good food and good service are hard to beat.

“Deliciously good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

At short notice on a Sunday evening we were searching the web for Thai restaurants in London; most that are rated highly are expensive, and most that are reasonably priced have very average feedback. The Thai Cafe seemed to be both well priced and regarded, so we thought we would give it a go. It's an unassuming yet welcoming place in a fairly nice part of Pimlico, spread over two levels, with lots of the decoration that seems common to Thai restaurants in the UK. Service was great - efficient and friendly without being pretentious or overbearing. We shared three starters between two - fishcakes were tasty and lightly spiced so allowing the fishy taste to come through; minced chicken and prawn dumplings were mildly flavoured but very moist and with a good texture on the dough, served with a sticky sweet soy sauce; and the tempura vegetables were fantastic - a great range of veg (sweet potato; broccoli; courgette; peppers), in crispy batter and a sweet chilli dipping sauce. The curries for the main course however were the star - the duck curry had an intense depth of flavour, the creaminess of the coconut milk balanced superbly with the richness of the duck and the heat of the spicing. Green prawn curry had a deliciously nutty flavour that became more enjoyable as the meal went on. Both egg-fried and coconut rice were standard, but good accompaniments. Overall. great value for money - highly recommended.

“Genuine Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

A nice lemon scent welcomes you as you walk in the restaurant. I had good memories of Thai food from a long trip to Thailand and I must say what I had here was exactly like that or even better. Super light tempura and great vegetarian plates. Quiet place in my favorite London Neighborhood: Pimlico. The staff is gentle and the service quick enough and if you add a very good quality for money (starter, main and a beer for around 20£) this makes this place a good place to come back to.

The food was delicious and exactly like you would expect to get in Thailand. The prices were affordable making the price/quality ratio hard to beat. Service was very friendly and quick.
