Ambience, service, food quality, and preparation -- all FIVE STAR!! Satay appetizer, scallop & sweet/sour chicken entrees, stir fried vegetables, and desserts -- OUTSTANDING!! Kaseam and his team (Jennie was a standout) are gracious and very professional! A must return!!

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.
