We were talking about having tapas for lunch for a week and when we passed by this little place , we had a chnage of heart and had Thai food instead! It did not disappoint us at all! After climbing up the narrow staircase and through the even narrower door, we felt we had entered into Far East! Simple decor... More

It is a cozy restaurant above a pub in Portobello Road. There are unique pieces of furniture, wood wall partitions , iron heavy chairs , unique lamps/candles...that create a magical atmosphere. The service is a bit slow but the food is very tasty.

Situated above a boozer just off the Portobello Road, this is a weird dining room with slightly odd, scattergun service although the staff were pleasant enough...just seemed a bit disorganised! Chilled out Thai service I guess! Food was absolutely stunning though, as good as any Thai we've experienced with rich, authentic flavours. Wouldn't say it was cheap here but it's... More

Saw the 're-opened' sign at this place walking home and thought we'd give it a try. We were the only ones in there at first but there were a couple of other couples coming in after. I ordered a Pad See Eew which was delicious and actually had more than some choy and noodles. Reasonably priced at £7.95-10.95 a main.... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
