This was a TERRIBLE dining experience! DO NOT go to this restaurant!!
I went here last night before a show I was to attend at 7:30. When I arrived the restaurant was essentially empty. They stuck me and my date in the worst 2 person table in the restaurant. When we asked to move to one of the other open tables, they (very rudely!!) told us they were all reserved for parties of 4-6.
As couples arrived. They began to separate the tables that were supposedly “reserved” for larger parties. When we left, the restaurant was still half empty.
In addition, I ordered a jasmine tea at the end of the meal. It arrived in a pot with one cup. When I asked for another cup, they said they would have to charge me for another tea.
Overall, the service was abysmal and the staff incredibly rude.
Please skip this restaurant if you want to have and enjoyable evening!!
A real favourite – great service, good food, not to pricey. Never yet failed to be seated immediately even though it’s not a large place. The menu is varied and everything I’ve tried has been delicious, with large portions making it excellent value for money. Thoroughly recommended.
I was planning to go to Wahaca but there was a 45 min wait (on a Tuesday night!!) so we opted for the Thai Pot instead.
We were given a table straight away and the service throughout was very quick. The menu had a wide variety of dishes and we had ordered four dishes to share between the three of us, all of which were delicious.
It wasn't very expensive either so I would very much recommend the Thai Pot for a quick bite to eat in Covent Garden.
Stumbled across this place by accident but it's now on my list of favourites. The menu has some really interesting dishes that you don't find in a lot of other Thais. The spare rib starter is delicious - very soft meat and beautifully cooked. The other starter we had was chicken wrapped in spinach which was unusual and also really nice. The service is quick and friendly and, I agree, it's not the kind of place where you would sit around having a really leisurely meal.
Straight up and down Thai joint, right in the thick of things.
I dropped in (for a table of 3) on St Patrick's Day, and was seated within ten minutes, when every other place we put our head into along the way was estimating an hour wait.
Service was stellar throughout, and although the interior lacks warmth (as in it is is a bit sterile, Ikea cut out type styling).
We had starters of Poh Pia Tod (spring rolls) which were pretty standard, an Toong Tong, which is Money Bags to most of us clueless Westerners. I would be keen to return for the Toong Tong alone, not least of all because on the menu they are listed as Golden Sack.
The Pad Thai is traditionally my testing point for any Thai place- everyone makes it, and coming from Australia means everyone makes it well (so I've been spoiled!).
They kept me happy with this dish- I didn't win best in London, but it was fresh, well balanced and authentic.
A happy accidental discovery!
A nice Thai restaurant which is perfect for a quick, good-value bite to eat before you head off to a West End show. Really quick, friendly service and tasty food, although as someone has already pointed out, it's not the kind of place you'd go for a cosy, romantic dinner for two. The decor is clean and simple, but you wouldn't stay for another drink after you've polished off your nosh. But recommended nonetheless, especially because the BEST PUB IN LONDON (The Harp) is just round the corner.
Good Thai restaurant tucked away in one of the back streets of Covent Garden (very close to Charing Cross Police Station).
Refurbed a few years ago the restaurant is open and light and a combination of traditional and contemporary. When busy the restaurant can get quite loud with people talking and having fun.
Menu is quite extensive and a good range to suit all flavours. The Jungle Curry is a good choice and they can warm it up if you require it.
Service is fast and efficient, not always supportive of a relaxed quiet meal so beware. If you walk in off the street then you may have a short wait. If the wait will be longer leave your name and pop to the pub a couple of doors down.
Certainly worth a visit for you to make up your own mind
