flavourful, cozy yet vibrant, i can now understand why it's so difficult to secure evening reservations!

We were celebrating a friend's birthday at Som Saa - the food was very delicious (we did break out into a sweat in response to chilli though, in a good way!)! the staff was very friendly and polite. Definitely coming back soon.

Tasty meal! We opted for the shared tasting menu, which was very good. The only thing we were not keen on, was the braised beef dish (think beef casserole with onions and potatoes, but with Thai flavours). Two types of rice offered (sticky and jasmine). Unfortunately the greens arrived when we had finished everything else, but we took it home and I had it for lunch today with rice - delicious! We were celebrating our 26th anniversary and were very touched when they brought over a glass of fizz each, before we had even ordered. Little gestures like this make such a memorable difference and almost always mean that we will go back!

Food was generally good, drinks were good and all well priced. Won't serve birthday cake as a policy which was really disappointing, particularly because the 'birthday surprise' was extremely underwhelming of ice-cream and banana.

I didn’t realise what a gem Som Saa was, having not known its recognised as one of the best restaurants in London. But I was so impressed by everything: our lovely waitress took the time to talk me through the menu (having heard of my previous bad experience with Thai food), and was so friendly and genuine. She made my evening. Then after the perfect recommendation of salads and curries, we spent the evening chatting with the manager about everything - from travelling to obscure and wonderful fruits. The food is without a doubt incredible, but the people at Som Saa are the special touch that will make me return over and over.

Food was as amazing as always - hands down one of the only authentic Thai restaurants in London! Service on the day was exceptional and the team were super helpful in helping sort my large group booking! Would recommend over and over again.

Found the service a bit perfunctory but the food is good - authentic Thai not the usual anglicised stuff - and the prices / portion sizes are reasonable for central London.

Absolutely delicious food with flavours that really pack a punch. Service was helpful, knowledgeable prompt yet discreet. Would love to go with a bigger party to try more dishes.

Fabulous service from our waiter! (Even though he wouldn’t give me the cocktail recipe 😂) Favourite Thai food during a few days feasting in the city. Will definitely return. Thanks!
