He advertises as lunch, baguettes etc in the daytime but he had a spare table for us so in we went and what an exceptional meal we had, We asked why he didnt state he was a Thai eatery, which he replied- I dont need to. He has local regulars most nights and im not suprised, it was beautiful.

Had lunch there with my husband. The service was ok but some of the staff very unpleasant. Had Thai dish which was ok and my husband a sandwich that was the size of a "canapé". Wouldn't go back.

Had lunch here with a colleague, we both had Thai food. Service was ok, food was average. Doesn't seem equipped to be a restaurant, I saw the dishes ending on a plastic container on the floor behind the counter as they were removed from the table. Was not convinced by the freshness of the ingredients in my Pad Thai (... More

Visited again with friends and had a much better meal. The duck spring rolls were good and this time the Thai Green Prawn curry was excellent.

Stumbled across the Strand Café; literally nearly went over on a dodgy laid path slab. Just called in for a snack purely based on the menu choice posted outside. Do not be put off by the exterior it does not reflect the food or service we received; both were outstanding. The menu choice is massive and is mix of different... More

Went here on a whim although a friend of mine had recommended for brunch and Thai. It was myself, my aunt and niece. We thought we would order just a sandwich after a nice walk in Kew late afternoon. There was only one couple already there and we saw their Thai food, therefore decided to order from the Thai lunch... More

I love this little place hidden away right at the north end of Kew Bridge. It's tiny and very popular so it can be difficult to get a table although there is lots of seating outside. Two charming Thai girls are front of house. The coffee is strong and the breakfasts are superb. Try the eggs benedict. I usually stop... More

This place was previously a workmen's cafe but was taken over earlier this year. It now does a range of food during the day but, from 5pm, offers exclusively Thai cuisine. And very good it is. Pleasant room. No licence - BYO wine with corkage @ £3 per bottle.
