I really want to like this place because it is literally within spitting distance of mine. But annoyingly it rather falls between 2 stools: it is neither cheap enough to be a “can't be bothered to cook, let's just get a Thai from my local” option nor is it good enough to be a “let's go to the brilliant and fancy Thai which happens to be nearby” venue. The location is indeed lovely if you are seated on the terrace where there's a beautiful view over some charming boats on the river looking towards Chelsea Harbour. The restaurant itself is a bit nondescript but you shouldn't have any problems getting a table on the terrace as the restaurant does seem to be nearly always empty. Service doesn't quite live up to the usual warm Thai reputation but they take your order and bring your food so it's pretty much fine. As for the food, there's the usual Pad Thais, green curries etc and they are perfectly edible but nothing to write home about. We had the Sunday buffet today: I am always suspicious of buffet offers and this one didn't change my mind. You can eat all you like of average dishes which have been sat around for a while for £16, but frankly I'd rather have one good course for a tenner. Good for a summer drink and bite to eat but I wouldn't recommend traveling far for the food here.
