Awarded 2 AA Rosettes for its precision, authenticity and finesse, Nipa Thai Restaurant is one of only 15 UK Thai Restaurants to have received the Thai Select award from the Thai government. This Zen-like setting sits in a secluded, leafy spot in upmarket Lancaster Gate.

Showcasing time-honoured Thai traditions and making use of fresh, pure ingredients, the Nipa Thai menu is the work of head chef Sanguan Parr. Made using authentic spices flown in from Thailand, favourites include pad Thai, the rich massaman curry, and crisp fried salmon with minced prawns, chili and spices.

Cleansing and exotic dessert flavours at Nipa Thai in London include mango sticky rice with coconut cream, or passion fruit and lemongrass baked custard with ginger shortbread and chocolate sorbet. A complementing range of drinks is offered at the bar.

A beautifully elegant dining room features intricate teak panelling and original Thai artefacts. Nipa Thai Restaurant sits next to Lancaster Gate Tube Station.

    The food was good and enjoyable BUT very slow service . We waited for ages before l got up to go and get a waiter to come over. This was particularly annoying as it took us over 20 mins to get to Nipa Thai in the first place due to refurbishment of the Royal Lancaster Hotel. All of us went to the main entrance as usual and were told there are NO lifts working and that we would have to walk round the block then go thru the Grill restaurant and climb 3 flights of stairs to get to the restaurant.
    We should have been told this at the time of the booking.
    No apology except the Manager kept saying its fine and that the lift would be working tomorrow!!!!

    The Royal Lancaster hotel must take responsibility as they had no diversion signage and it was misleading for guests to be shown to the lifts when they were NOT working ! 2 ladies in the group were recent knee op's so the stairs issue was not welcome.
    There was no option except to climb the stairs. When leaving we came down only to find we were locked in!! Not a soul in sight. We had to call nipa thai who came down and let us out thru a side entrance . We had to go thru the grill again and some climbing stairs to negotitiate .

    A very good dining experience. I booked this restaurant for a birthday meal for two so I wanted something a bit special and different. The Nipa Thai met both these objectives. Neither of us wanted to be bothered by over attentive staff asking whether everything was all right every two minutes and we weren't! The service was spot on: welcoming, attentive enough to ensure we were comfortable, on hand to advise where necessary and available to take our order when we were ready. After this we were left to get on with a very splendid meal. We opted for one of the set menus and chose the four star paired wine. The combination of flavours was superb. Although we were familiar with the dishes they were much more subtle and enjoyable than we have experienced in other places. The wines matched perfectly and we enjoyed a thoroughly relaxed and enjoyable time. The price was probably a little more than the average, but I felt that it represented good value for money, particularly a something a little special. We hope to return, hopefully when the Lancaster Gate tube station is operational again!

    Great food and lovely ambience at Nipa Thai. We went out to celebrate a special birthday and am so pleased we chose Nipa thai. Each dish was delicious and didn't disappoint. The starter platter and crispy seabass in chilli and basil were particularly memorable. The service was also on par with the food.

    Excellent food and very attentive staff, at great price. We checked out the menu in advance and our party of 11 were all keen to go with the Dara set menu, however several were gluten intolerant, so I contacted the restaurant who were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we were offered a gluten free variant of the set menu which we pre-booked and everybody thoroughly enjoyed. On the night the staff had obviously been briefed with respect our particular requirements and paid special attention in assuring those with the dietary restrictions had no issues
