Lovely pub but poor food. Dim sum tasted microwaved & had gristly bits.
Main was supposed to be super spicy but was not at all, just v dry.
Much better Thai food along Charlotte St and at a better price. Will only return for drinks.

The staff and the selection of food choices were both great. We had a very fun evening and can’t recommend this place more highly.

This must be our third or fourth visit here. It is fairly small, so occasionally the pleasant roof terrace has been used (two floors up). This time - prawn toasts were excellent, extremely rich and tasty. Singapore noodles - I had beef this time and the beef was tender (not always guaranteed at restaurants). My partner had Thai squid starter (which was a little dry - we realised after it should have had a dipping sauce) and a main of smoked crispy chicken (again he found this a little dry - perhaps its coating sauce should have been a little thinner ?). But overall this is a quiet comfortable pub in which to dine, and is always welcoming. We like it ! There are always offers on food on a Saturday. And beware - closed on Sunday, as is a lot of the surrounding area.

As a local I’m surprised I haven’t found this place before, glad I have now. Saw a review in a food magazine and it wasn’t wrong . Great decor, loved the roof terrace and the food was high quality and not pricey . We’ll be regulars now !

A nice little pub serving Asian food. The tables were very crammed in so it was difficult to get out to the loo, but the service was excellent. Probably more pub than restaurant, but a pleasant evening.

Excellent value, really nice pub and great service. My lamb rendang could have done with more sauce and the pork buns are pork belly which the menu wasn’t clear about - but the food was delicious - will definitely be coming back.

We were in London for a weekend break. We had 2 meals here - one on a Friday evening - pre-theatre - and again on the Saturday evening. Early Friday evening it was very busy with people leaving work and having a drink - so, if you don't like a noisy, vibrant scene, then its not for you. However, we also had a meal on the Saturday night (we were staying there -fabulous) and it was totally different. It was a lot quieter - the clientele coming for food as well as drink. The food on both occasions was very good. We had the lamb curry, shrimp and Pad Thai as well as the Sharing Platter. The flavours were lovely - if not a little sweet on the Pad Thai. The price was great for London for the quality of the food and drink. We did thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and the ambience on both occasions. The staff are marvellous and couldn't do enough for us - very friendly and obliging. We will return.

Really nice cozy pub atmosphere. Friendly staff. The upscaled Thai food is a bit hit and miss.

We didn't actually eat in the end as we didn't want Thai (we should have checked / our fault) but it looked and smelled wonderful!

Didn’t know food was Asian- which was a great surprise- had chicken laksa- pretty good!
Was quiet in there which was good and quite small place- but food very good. Recommend it!

We booked the Grafton Arms as a friend recommended to us for the food and cocktails combo, I had the tiger prawn tempura and duck rice, food was fresh and super tasty, not greasy as usually duck dishes are. Cocktails were pretty good too, loved the grapefruit margarita paired with the duck. Overall I had such a fantastic time , food was delicious and service was delightful. Kudos.

Another excellent meal at this lovely pub in Fitzrovia. Great value the pan Asian with great flavours (the pad Thai is my absolute fave!). Warm and friendly atmosphere and really good beers and craft lager. Highly recommended!

Was excited when this place reopened — menu looked amazing. While service is excellent and the refit is really nice, the food is really not great. Watery, tasteless, just kind of wrong. A shame because if it delivered on the promise of the menu it would be A++

We arrived 10 minuets late to be told rather rudely the kitchen closes in 15 mins and we close at 10pm !
We expected the same atmosphere at least of the other restaurants in the group .
We turned around and left definately would never go back .

I’m not really a pub kind of person but this place is one of my hidden gems. They serve great food accompanied by the warm, friendly staff. It’s a must!
