Soho Thai, Soho

Six of us were wandering through Soho looking for somewhere to eat.  A plan to go to Cha Cha Moon had been scuppered by the length of the queue.

Soho Thai caught our eye and we were ushered into the back room where they had a big enough table but lacked the atmosphere of the main dining area.  The service was efficient, if not overly friendly.

To begin, tom yum soup went down very well, prawn toasts were tasty (if a little heavy) and not too greasy with a generous sprinkling of sesame seeds.  The menu doesn't offer any surprises, but it delivers the classics with ease: green Thai curry, chicken massaman curry, pad se-iew, pad Thai - all polished off with no problem.  House wine was decent enough.

Two courses and half a bottle of wine: £20 per head

Value: 7/10

Service: 6/10

Atmosphere: 6/10

Food: 7/10

SCORE: 26/40

Soho Thai, 27-28 St. Anne's Court, London, W1F 0BN.  Tel: 020 72872000.
