The Sri Thai City restaurant is just a short walk from Liverpool Street station and a popular choice among local workers and tourists checking it out. Sri Thai City is a popular option for romantic meals and large social gatherings, thanks to its vibrant atmosphere and impressive selection of cocktails and bar drinks. A small bar area enlivened by oriental fabrics acts as a curtain-raiser for this plush basement restaurant, where the sultry, sophisticated decor mixes theatricality with intimacy to winning effect. The assured Thai cooking is a mélange of Chinese, Vietnamese & other influences, with lots of choice on the vast menu. Work your way from spicy & sour Thai Tom Yum soup, through to green chicken curry with fresh herbs & Thai aubergines and finish with a panda crepe with cocunut & ice-cream
