Booked by my other half as part of my surprise valentines night, we had a booking at 9pm. The restaurant looked beautiful, all red roses and heart shaped balloons everywhere mixed with the dim lighting and candles made for a really romantic atmosphere. The staff were lovely, friendly and warm and very helpful. They were also all dressed in traditional... More

We waited 1,5 hours for our food and the staff had forgotten our order. The food was good but a little ruined because of the wait.

Booked this restaurant based on reviews for our Valentines evening meal. during the booking I had requested not to be near any open doorways as my wife is pregnant and does not do well with the cold. We where seated away from the main entrance to the restaurant, but with that being said the entrance is on the first floor... More

I had won a voucher for dinner and wine as a raffle prize, so decided to use it for a birthday last Monday, and what a treat it was! The room is fairly large, yet the decor makes it feel warm and inviting. The food was exquisite and full of flavour, and when I accidentally ate a rather hot chilli... More

Eventually found it. The map shows it in the position of a different restaurant, but it's actually the next block on the other side of the tube station. Tasty food, but on the pricey side.

One of only 15 UK restaurants recognised by the Thai government for its quality and cuisine, Nipa wears its heritage proudly on its sleeve. The teak-panelled interior is inspired by its sister restaurant in Bangkok, with a profusion of orchids that feel strangely at home in their first floor setting in the Lancaster Hotel overlooking the Italian Fountains of Hyde Park. Three set menus and the extensive à la carte offer a mouthwatering range of intense Thai flavours, mixing traditional dishes of central Thailand with regional specialities.
