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.

Went to Nipa Thai with my family. It is a beautiful restaurant with outstanding service. All of the staff are extremely friendly. Most importantly the food was amazing, the best Thai food I have had in London. I would highly recommend anyone to go there.

This really was an outstanding experience and ticks all the boxes . On first arrival you are bowled over by the setting of the restaurant which is in the Royal Lancaster hotel , you are immediately transported to a luxury hotel in Bangkok with amazing...decor and atmosphere. We have stayed in many such places in Bangkok.. We were greeted by the House manager who I believe is called Kaseam who was professional , helpful and attentive , he has learned a lot in his 20 years in the role ! So on to the food which was really amazing , we had one of the expansive set menus . The Thai fish cakes in the starters were really amazing. The soup was prawn and coconut and it was stunningly good, beautifully spiced with zingy lemon grass and chilli. On to the mains where for us the scallops and asparagus and the chicken green curry were the stars of the show. The taste of authentic Thai flavours was amazing and felt a huge leap up from the normal high street Thai food.. Pad Thai was not quite as good and for my taste was a little too sweet and sticky . Finally for desert some refreshing and really tasty coconut ice cream. Service was brilliant all the way through the meal , perfect Thai hospitality. This was a real high class meal and we have only ever had one better Thai meal which was at Nahm the Michelin starred Thai restaurant in Bangkok. To end this wonderful experience Kaseam gave us a complimentary class of wine to enjoy in the lounge , an amazing touch which was totally unexpected and was the perfect end to an amazing evening. Although this place is more expensive than a high street Thai restaurant it is well worth the money and I cant recommend this place enoughMore

We arrived on the spur of the moment at reception and asked if we could visit the Nipa Thai without a reservation. A very professional member of the reception team smiled and said follow me. After a short walk thought the hotel we arrived and...were greeted by the Nipa Manager one Mr Kaseam Jongpitakrat. He was very welcoming and took us to lovely table at the front of the hotel with a view out over Hyde Park. We explained our wish to have something a little different and he suggested a set menu with an accompanying glass of wine for each dish. Each dish was served with a full description and wine tasting advise. Each member of staff was polite and smartly dressed, we wanted for nothing. We were not hurried and each dish appeared with perfect timing. After a fantastic meal and we were treated to complementary Champagne out in the very spacious lounge of the hotel. Can't recommend the Nipa Thai enough....thank Kaseam and your staff.More

I don’t recommend this restaurant! Food was awful, really below average, the cup that they brought for the tea was dirty - someone’s previous customer lipstick was on the cup. The taste of oil was too intense in all the dishes and looks like they...use this oil too many times and don't change it. The price for this bad quality is ridiculous, really.More
