We arrived at about 6pm on the first Sunday of March - the place was completely empty and had to wait a while to get the waiter's attention from the back. He was very friendly and gave us just the right amount of time to deliberate about what to eat and drink as we struggled to make up our minds.
The waiter sat us right by the conservatory window overlooking the thames next to very warm radiators which we thought was lovely. (One problem is that the next 2 couples were also understandably seated on similar tables so we could all hear eachother's conversations - probably wouldn't bother most people but wife and I are antisocial and prefer privacy so next time we will sit in main building.)
Prawn crackers recommended as they are the real spicey kind not the white fluffy takeaway ones.
We loved the sauvignon chile white, it went perfect with the meal.
Dont go here if you're looking for buzz as there is none. Although we love quiet restaurants. If they only had 3 customers on that day (assuming nobody came in later) I have no idea how on earth they're still ion business!
The 1 reason we dont give 5/5 is because we asked for 2nd glass of wine an it never came. (I noticed the waiter brought wine to the next table so perhaps there was a little miscommunication between waiters). The couple on the next table were given the wrong bill which was a human mistake which we all laughed about but a little embarrasing for everyone i thought.
Good for a nice peaceful relaxing delicious meal but don't go for special occasion because it might not feel that special!
Fantastic decor - my wife wants me to buy the little thai lady statues
The christmassy lights on the tree outside are a nice idea but a little cheap don't you think? I suggest putting little chinese lanterns on there or something to give it that authentic touch. (like the ones outside that oriental restaurant in west kensington on the A4).
Food - brilliant, chef/kitchen is/are genius(es)
Price - average, we payed £86 for starter and main with sides and 2 large glasses of wine each. (watch out for 12.5% service already on the bill)
