SquareMeal Review of Cafe de Thai

A short hop from touristy Portobello Road, this pint-size Thai draws in locals with its straightforward menu & keen prices. Customers are also seduced by views over the huge communal garden out back, while lavender walls & gilt furniture lend a girly vibe. Starters stray from the Thai canon to include Japanese tempura, Indonesian satays & Chinese dumplings, but mains get things back on track. Green or red curries are deservedly popular, but it’s worth checking out the house specials such as pla manao (delicately steamed sea bass with a zesty lime sauce). Som tam, a salad of shredded green papaya & roasted nuts, is the perfect foil to the spiciness of the fish. Despite reports of patchy service, the fixed-price deal (£9 for two courses) guarantees bums on seats.

Looking at the other reviews, I can't understand it – we went there before going to the show and it was excellent – great food, great service (all be it they were constantly trying to get us to change seats to nearer the front but we were happy where we were!) It was good value for money – especially considering we were in the Notting hill. We both enjoyed the starters and the main meal. The wine was good and brought the bill promptly when asked. Can't think of anything bad to say about it. Well done

We enjoyed everything about la finca. We were made to feel really welcome. It was colder when we went and the open radiators made us feel relaxed and at home. The food is REAL Thai food. properly made. We havent seen anything else like it on this part of the coast. The rustic atmosphere made it for me, as the building is really old and has a lot of history. It is decorated with lots of interesting art, photographs and artesan items made or supplied by local people. I love the lettuce starter with the special sauce, the massamen curry, sticky rice and the icecream dessert that gets set on fire with liqueur. The cocktails were good too. I would definitely go again, and again, and recommend it to everyone. I saw a family with children there, and the kids were eating everthing.

Warm welcome,comfortable seating and relaxed atmosphere I have just returned from a really great dinner here. The food was lovely, with wonderful flavours, great presentation and good portion sizes (my friends green curry and bowl of rice was so big he could not finish it!) Service was very good, without being over attentive and the menu was well explained to us. I have to agree with many other and say the only down side is the room and the lack of ambience in it. At £25 a head for dinner it is a great was to sample the flavours of the only Michelin starred Thai restaurant in Europe � I for one will be back!
