Contemporary fuses with traditional in this stylish, air-conditioned restaurant, ideal for dinner a deux. Brushed steel and concrete work remarkably well with the wood, bamboo and grey slate - a perfect backdrop for some impressive Thai artefacts - prayer scrolls, ornate dragons and buddhas and indigenous Thai art. The chic setting sets the scene for the dining experience to follow.

I have been to many chains and sub-standard restaurants but this was probably some of the worst food I have eaten in London.
