About
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.

Wonderful food and excellent service This was our second visit and we were very impressed this time. We had a lovely green curry and a beautiful king prawn dish served with rice and a noodle dish - all were delicious and very well presented. Dessert...was an unusual but lovely deep fried ice cream and chocolate sauce. The service was excellent and I would highly recommend this restaurant. Huge thanks to Kaseam Jongpitakrat!More

We recently stayed at the Royal Lancaster while in London. As we love Thai food and because the restaurant had great reviews we decided to have dinner Nipa Thai. It was a great decision. The food was amazing and the service top notch. Ian, our...Server was friendly and extremely attentive. The entire staff made us feel welcome. The restaurant also has an amazing view of Hyde Park.

The restaurant is very attractive, and the food was good. The concern was the level of service which was very slow. It seemed as if they were short-staffed. We had to request for someone to take our drink and dinner orders several times.

We had reservations for 8:30 and were seated promptly and were given menus and then waited fifteen minutes for our drink order to be taken. Wine was very nice. The spring rolls were good, not amazing. My husband loved his Panang Curry. I ordered Massaman...Kai, which my bad, I did not ask if it was white meat, and it was not, so the dish wasn't for me. I did find the sauce somewhat lacking, but in all fairness, I have Burning Mouth Syndrome, so I walk a fine line between when I can tolerate heat and having to eat more bland dishes. My husband was all for going back as the restaurant was in our hotel, me not so much. Perhaps because we had eaten at House of Ming the night before and I was over Asian food for the moment. It has a nice atmosphere, but I think service was off.More
