“Top-value Thai food with personality – love it!”. This slightly “bonkers” pub near Notting Hill Gate looks normal enough, until you discover its “quirky butterfly conservatory at the rear”: “a hustling and bustling” venue serving “tasty”, spicy scoff at prices that are “amazingly low for the area”. “Still a winner” after over thirty years’ service: in particular it’s “a great choice for eating with friends”.

“Stunningly good-value, cheap ’n’ cheerful” Thai food is served in “portions which might prove a challenge even for the very hungry” at this one-of-a-kind boozer near Notting Hill Gate. The whole set-up can seem “as mad as a box of frogs” but is “always a fun night out” – you eat in a “a cute, butterfly garden conservatory at the back of a totally normal Irish pub”. “You only get an hour at the table but service is very fast.”

“Unbeatable value for a very good nosh-up” is to be had at this “quirky-but-real pub”, just off Notting Hill Gate, whose “butterfly-themed conservatory” makes a feature of “great, simple Thai food”, and provides “a good deal in a normally expensive area”. “Service can be brusque, but the place is so busy it’s hard to see how it could be otherwise”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
