Great location and interior, amazing service, excellent menu. Some of the ‘main course’ curries were on the smaller side, almost like starters, but otherwise no complaints.

Overall tasty food. However we requested one or two items to be mild , the chef wasn’t able to accommodate suggesting some ingredients may have been pre-prepared. Making mild food from scratch upon request might have meant a more enjoyable experience.

I really enjoyed my experience at Chai Thail, was a little disappointed with the food, the curries were very average and very small portion. Not value for money and there are much better customer houses out their. Overall the service was exceptional and so was the setting.

The food was nice but over priced. I think management need to review the prices and also think about increasing the portions. Also I found that the restaurant was located in an awkward place and was a bit hard to find.

Service and atmosphere perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed the kebab - yummy. Starter lamb mince with kulcha tasted same as main lamb/mince. If we'd been advised ofthis would have ordered something different. Naan for £2 pricey - also other accompaniments like rice. Didn't enjoy my non-alcoholic cocktail. But delicious food - will def visit again.

Great food, was a little quiet when we went. Makes me think a lot of people are missing out. Portion sizes were a little confusing

quantity of food is less as compared to price charged!! Food is mostly sweet and not spicy. Taste of the food is decent but not as great as compared to other renowned Indian restaurants in London.

Our group chose some dishes *not* marked as spicy, but then it turned out they were very hot! This resulted in a painful dining experience and some of us had to leave our food uneaten. Can get expensive depending on the dishes you choose. For example, a single naan bread costs £3.5... Other than that, the other dishes were very good. If you like hot food, head here. Otherwise be careful!

Great flavoured food , we had 3 dishes and they all tasted good and all had their own flavour characteristics which is often not the case in many curry restaurants

Food was good and service also. However, the restaurant goofed up on health & safety - they had left Christmas lighting wires all over the place and that created an accident and my spouse slipped on top of the wires and hurt herself badly. The Manager never turned up to say Sorry or Apologize - even worse was the fact - when we cam to know that the Manager was responsible for the wireless being on the floor without any warning signs.
