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.

    I'm sorry, we didn't enjoy the meal. Not the fresh, lively Thai flavours and spicing that we are used to with Thai cuisine. It was more expensive than any Thai meal we have had had too.

    The Nipa restaurant team are very friendly and welcoming. They have always catered for any special requests such as a particular table or bookings for occasions such as anniversaries, receptions, etc. The food is exceptional, very authentic (confirmed by a thai person) and my favourite dishes are the platter for starter, followed by the chicken green curry. If you still have room for a dessert, the coconut sorbet is a refreshing taste to the palate.

    Superb service, very friendly staff. Excellent food (probably the best Thai restaurant in London) and very large set menus. Can't recommend it enough.

    Restaurant was superb. From the moment you entered the restaurant to the time that you left, you were treated with the upmost respect. The set menus were a great addition to the main dishes as there was so much choice. Good variety of dishes too especially if you are vegetarian. Please note that the closest tube up until July 2017 is Marble Arch on the Central line as Lancaster Gate station is closed. Takes about 10-15 mins to walk from there.

    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 .

    Exellent thai food!

    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!
