" the most thrilling Thai grub in London....So eat it and weep.  Tears of pain. Or pleasure. Or both."

The Heron Thai


The Heron Thai, located in the basement of the bar has been delighting diners' taste buds with authentic flavors, spices and herbs for over 10 years


Our head Chef  Joe produces punchy, vibrant authentic food with a menu that's nothing like your usual high Street Thai.


From the stir fried duck tongue with pepper and garlic to the fried century eggs, covered with stir fried minced pork and crispy holy basil, you are guaranteed to get the real taste of Thailand at the Heron. Make sure you reserve your table today

"Unbelievably fantastic Thai food. Especially recommend the Soft Shell Crab with Salt and Pepper, and the Morning Glory vegetables - really, really delicious. Set in the downstairs of an old English pub, it's a real hidden gem"
