My boyfriend did a lot of research to find somewhere to take me for my birthday but this place didn't live up to the reviews at all. Firstly, we asked multiple times to have our cocktails before any food came out. That didn't happen - mainly because the cocktails took so long to arrive. They were meant to have ginger... More

It was my first visit to Nipa. I only have good words to say! Food was very delicious, service attentive and we were very well looked after. Will definitely go back! Also enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks in the bar!

Great Thai food in a very nice environment. Staff polite, extremely helpful and full of smiles. All in all, great experience if a bit pricey though well worth it

Hard to find! The entrance is through the Island restaurant! Great place, the staff was really nice and dishes were very good. Starter of steamed rice rolls were amazing, and massamen curry was excellent too. Noodles were not at the same level. Recommend.

Although we have been coming to the Lancaster for years it has been at least a decade since we frequented this restaurant. We always enjoyed it but the attractions of theatreland got in the way. This time we went with friends and got off to a bad start as the booking had been missed. However the problem was corrected with... More

We visited Nipa Thai in September for birthday dinner. They staff really went out of their way to make it a special occasion through their friendliness and attention to detail. The food was delicious-just the right amount of spice and chicken was so tender-one of the best Thai food meals I have had. Finally the location overlooking the park really... More

My wife and I are staying at the Lancaster and took advantage of eating at this fabulous restaurant. The restaurant was clean and spacious but not intimidating. The atmosphere is enhanced by the well presented and courteous staff. The food is both flavoursome and plentiful. We will definitely return and would recommend to others.

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.
