Description: One of only 15 UK restaurants recognised by the Thai government for its quality and cuisine, Nipa wears its heritage proudly on its sleeve. The teak-panelled interior is inspired by its sister restaurant in Bangkok, with a profusion of orchids that feel strangely at home in their first floor setting in the Lancaster Hotel overlooking the Italian Fountains of Hyde Park. Three set menus and the extensive à la carte offer a mouthwatering range of intense Thai flavours, mixing traditional dishes of central Thailand with regional specialities.

We held a conference at the hotel in May and had a team dinner the evening before. We asked the waitress to recommend a meal for us as we are Thai novices. The waitress recommended we share a selection of different set menus, her recommendation did not disappoint.

The food was delicious and fresh; the service was flawless and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I will definitely be going back!

Nipa is a hidden gem - it is inside the Lancaster London Hotel - serving divine Thai cuisine. All the staff appear to be Thai and the food is definitely authentic. When we ate there, there were a number of Thais eating there too - enough said!!

I was really surprised by this restaurant.
It's a small dining room, with probably not more than 40 seats. Woodden floor and furniture provides a elegant and warm atmosphere.
Service is excellent and personell friendly and helpfull.
Excellent spicy prawn soup: to try only if you really love spicy food.
The prawn red curry with coconut milk was really tasty and generous.
Probably the best thai food I had outside Thailand.
Definitely suggested
