A word from Thai Thai East
Located near Old Street station in London's East End, Thai Thai restaurant has become the dining destination de rigeur for hip socialistas and local foodies. The light and airy dining room with ruby and vanilla coloured walls, teak wood furniture and the freshest Spitalfield Market plants is perfect for relaxed meals with friends and colleagues. We recommend the Pad Thai, Somtam Salad, any of their array of curries; and coconut rice. Freshly blended exotic juices like Pomergranate, Tamarind and Young Coconut provide an insight into the mocktails, whilst the Strawberry Lover and Butterly Martini cocktails will compliment your group dinners.The long serving service team are famous for their friendly, helpful attitude and warm welcome. Sawadika!

Diner Reviews
  • "We were celebrating a friend's birthday and thought ThaiThai would be a nice place to try after reading the reviews and checking out their website. From the moment we arrived the service was absolutely on point much to our delight. We were seated in an area that allowed for our late arriving guests to locate us easily. The instructions given about the birthday cake were taken into consideration and actioned as directed. The food was lovely and I thought the price was reasonable, would definitely go there again."

  • "Decent food and service but lacks the attention to detail to be excellent. For example the mushrooms used in the soup were looking a little past their best. I'd go again but not travel out of my way to do so."

  • "Had a lovely evening here, the food was delicious and the staff were as friendly as ever. Only slight disappointment was that we weren't offered chopsticks to eat with!! lol"

  • "Thai Thai east provides a good deal but food is not the best"
    dined on 02/03/2014
  • "We had all been here before and remembered how good the food was, and on the face of it it seems quite reasonably priced (£10-12 main, £5-8 starter). How then did the bill for 4 of us only having 1 glass of wine each - get to £160?? The most eye-wateringly offensive extra was the bottled sparkling water. For a 750ml bottle we shelled out £4.75 a time and as we weren't drinking much, we went through quite a lot without realising just how much it was adding to the bill. The food was great, but be careful with the extras."

  • "Went to Thai Thai again last week Friday. 3 words. Brilliant As Usual."

  • "This place had a very nice atmosphere. The staff were friendly and food was amazing. Its a large restaurant with a nice deco."

  • "I've dined here many times and this is the first time I have left not completely happy with the experience. It's a shame they have changed their TT offer from 50% off to a set menu, which is very limited. However the food itself was just as good as I remember but the service just wasn't. We all felt that we were being rushed, our plates were being cleared before we finished, our order was brought to us incorrectly and had to be sent back, and when we were given our bill they kindly included chocolates, although only 3 when there were 4 of us dining. furthermore, they did not check us in properly and I was left with a no show on my account which I had to chase up. A little more care would have been nice"
    dined on 23/02/2014
  • "I love this place. My only criticism is that they've stopped the 50% discount on the A la Carte menu and instead there's a set menu, that I didn't find that interesting or varied. Order the beef salad off the main menu though. It's amazing!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "The experience of Thai Thai was overall ok, mainly because the food was quite good, it was valentine's day and I was with my girlfriend, which covered up the far too expensive price, poor service and terrible toilets. The food is your standard Thai restaurant selection, nothing particularly special or unique. The penang prawn curry was actually pretty good and although we received a free cocktail, as part of their Valentine's Day promo, the Lobster - that was also part of this - was tiny, not particularly tasty and certainly not worth the price. Service is ok, though not great. Ambience is ok, the restaurant is decorated quite nicely, though again for V Day they cram you in! Price is a joke. For what it is, should be half!"

  • "Thai Thai used to be my first choice restaurant, but I have to guess that it's got new owners. A lot of things missing from the menu, new set menu replacing the 50% off special offer, which is really a very boring menu. Plus everything now comes with extra chillis. The restaurant is noticeably quieter than it used to be so I'm sure I'm not alone in noticing this. Now I have to find a new Thai restaurant. We decided to give the place a chance as change is not necessarily a bad thing, but the evening as a whole was disappointing and we won't be going back again. Time to find a new Thai restaurant."
    dined on 11/02/2014
  • "All I can say about this place is that everything about it was average."
    dined on 10/02/2014
  • "Fantastic food and great value...the 2-4-1 special offer is an amazing deal with no compromise on quality / portions of food."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Last Wednesday I took my wife here to celebrate our 4th anniversary. The restaurant decor mixed traditional styling with modern touches, that created relaxed, comfortable and romantic atmosphere.The food was varied & flavourful, good & fair portions were spotted on. No overly full feelings or needed to grab more food afterwards. The service was exceptional and pleasantly surprised when they offered a free glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Adeel who manages the restaurant was friendly, cheerful and very professional, so as were his excellent team.I would recommend thai thai to anyone who want to have a romantic evening with excellent food and friendly service. My parting advice -Go there and enjoy,you will not be disappointed!"
    dined on 05/02/2014
  • "Tasting menu 2 for 1 deal, is not as good as the previous 50% off all a carte deal. They changed deals and it isn't as good value."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "Lived up to those great reviews! The tasting menu allowed us to try authentic Thai dishes that we wouldn't normally order. All fresh ingredients and tempered cooking, delivered by friendly smiley servers. It works out about £14.25 per person for a huge amount of food and I can't believe how people can rate this as poor value! Wonderful and much better than most Thai restaurants in London. Get out more often guys. Can't wait to go back!"
    dined on 28/01/2014
  • "Having heard about Thai Thai I must say I was quite disappointed. The set taster menu only allowed for one type of food change. The toilets were dreadful The smell of burning and old oil whiffed in the air as we were seated downstairs The waiter kept pacing up and down up and down and more interested in clearing our plates and forcing drinks on us, rather than to wait until we had completely finished one serving. Then to top it off, the starter of prawn cakes came and with 3-4 mouthfuls the main course arrived......we were not asked if we were ready for the next setting. This restaurant is extremely over rated. We would have been better off ordering from our local Chinese. Thai Thai as a first time customer we won't be visiting again."
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Had a pretty bad experience here. Wouldn't go back or recommend others going. Prices are too high for below average food and service is pretty shoddy."
    dined on 20/01/2014
  • "Thanks to our Top Table offer of 50% off the tasting menu, we had a great value meal which was totally delicious. Surprised ourselves with the Thai wine, and drank rather too much. Great evening out."
    dined on 19/01/2014
  • "Good food. Was rather spicy and plenty of options especially with the discount on offer. However, on menu price without the discount would be average value for money. The service was poor. Got the bill, paid it and once we left the restaurant was told that they had forgotten to add additional items to the bill. Took an additional 10 minutes to have this sorted. Disappointed with overall service."
    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "Recent business lunch at the Thai Thai East proved to be very successful. I'm sure the food and ambience played a big part."
    dined on 15/01/2014
  • "Had a really enjoyable meal here. We went for the tasting menu which allowed us to order dishes we probably wouldn't have tried before, and enjoyed them. Very good value for money. Service was very good and when my guest needed some serious help understanding the ingredients and food preparation (allergens), things were very well and confidently explained by the lovely Manager. Staff also friendly and attentive. The cocktails were also very nice. Lovely dinner out. I will definitely be back."
    dined on 12/01/2014
  • "the food was nothing exceptional, the duck smelt funny, the green veggies were really spicy and the chicken was not amazing, the venegatble curry was tasty as in the sauce, but it was full of huge chunks of red peppers. it wasnt anything great, and we ended up paying £55 with some wine each. definitely not worth it."
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "I was living in the area for 5 years and it was one of my favorite restaurants. Too spicy was never an issue in Thai Thai for me. I ordered steamed fish, which I ordered before, but it came looking different. I thought I'd give it a try but it was sooo ridiculously hot that it was impossible to eat. My friend ordered a salad, and it was very very hot so he hardly finished with a help of a few glasses of water. When we gave this feedback to the waitress, she said that it says in the menu that the dishes have chilies so we should of looked at the description when we ordered! I asked to consider advising clients when they order or put indication in the menu, and she said it's not up to her. BAD food, RUDE service.I will not be coming back."
    dined on 02/01/2014
  • "I have been to Thai Thai East several times, this time for my birthday. We had the tasting menu which was a nice way to try things we wouldn't usually order, the duck dish was fantastic and will now become a regular order. Great service and a thoroughly enjoyable meal."
    dined on 02/01/2014
  • "Good selection, served nice and fresh. Very tasty. I would definitely come here again. Recommended."

  • "Booked for a small works function of 9 people. We were very well looked after and the food was very good."
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "Overall a good experience . I have to say I have been several times to this place . The quality of the food has slightly deteriorated but it is still overall a good experience ."
    dined on 14/12/2013
  • "Great food, good service, not too expensive. Been here a few times and cannot complain. Thanks!!"
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "The food was very nice, but we would not pay the full price for the tasting menu. The final price with the 2 for 1 offer is just rigt for the amount of food you receive. Duck is better than the chicken dish, lovely vegetabes and amazing starters!"
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Eaten at Thai Thai East several times and never disappointed. Quite loud but busy vibe and great food, served quickly."
    dined on 19/09/2013
  • "We booked an offer 2for 1 and found then the value of the meal really fair! I recommend this place for these who tolerate a VERY spicy food - for us it was unfortunately too much, we won't rather come back.. A pity!"
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "Thai Thai has a delicious selection of food on offer and the food has never failed to taste good every time I have been there. One thing that I find slightly irritating is that the waiting staff are too hasty to come and clear your plates after each course. It is not a relaxing dining atmosphere all the while I am clinging onto my plate, making sure it is not whipped from beneath my nose before I have finished. I think it is quite rude to begin clearing plates when any member of the dining party is still eating. This isn't to say the service isn't friendly, just a bit rushed."
    dined on 13/11/2013
  • "As usual, lovely food and great value with 50% deal, love this place."
    dined on 09/08/2013
  • "Nice atmosphere, staff seemed friendly and efficient. We got the tasting menu for 2 for 1 deal which was excellent value and about the right amount of food. The vegetable curry was fantastic, but the the chicken dish was not so good. Overall okay, but a little disappointed by one or two items."
    dined on 10/11/2013
  • "I've been a few times and always enjoy the experience... weather it's1to1, or a group. Good lively atmosphere & friendly staff"
    dined on 09/11/2013
  • "The food wasn't outstanding (I think it's tough finding truly great Thai food in London for some reason - there is a dearth of it) but you pay for what you get - it wasn't expensive."
    dined on 12/09/2013
  • "Thai Thai East … what can I say … It was my favorite restaurant but not anymore … they changed the menu and probably the chef as food was greasy and not so good. Pad thai noodles were not very good …. how they cannot do good pad thai??? Well very disappointed."
