Waiter was a bit rude and was trying to ask us to move to a two table as there was two of us sitting at a 4 table. I was confused because the restaurant was empty.
For the starters we had the squid which was nothing special, tasted out of packaging and had no garnish it just came with a sweet chilli dip.
I got chicken noodles for my main. It was okay, the noodles were a bit over cooked for my liking and it did taste a bit sweet. The bean sprouts were also raw which was a huge no no

This is my go-to place for nice, cozy Thai cuisine in London. The food never disappoints! They have every classic Thai dish like pad Thai and green curry. You can see the amazing chef cooking in the kitchen and the vibe definitely brings you back to Thailand.

Having tried Thai food the day before which had completely blew my mind, I genuinely thought my Thai dining experience had peaked and that I wouldn't be able to find something on par. However, this place did wow me by a bit ngl although I still wouldn't say it was better than the other place because they are very different styles - Paolina is a lot more home-cooked and cosy vibe which is great when the weather is getting cold and you want some comfort food to warm you up. This is exactly the place for that!

We had made a booking in advance and were glad we did as it got busy very quickly even though it was a Wednesday evening. We shared some duck spring rolls and satay gai (chicken) for starters which were really nice. The crispy spring rolls were very flavourful and the peanut sauce that came with the satay chicken was so rich and nutty, hit the spot for me perfectly. For mains, I personally went with the duck curry and egg fried rice, others went for massman curry with prawns and also egg fried rice, pad Thai with chicken and pad se-ew with chicken. We all enjoyed our food so much we were really happy with the quality. My duck curry was so rich and flavourful and had a nice kick to it surprisingly - usually Asian places adapt to British palette so even if they put chillies on their menu I didn't think it would taste of much so it was a pleasant surprise. They also gave really big portions for the prices charged so it's definitely good value for money.

Staff were all nice and friendly. I asked one of them if they could lower the air-con as it was really cold when it's chilly outside and she actioned it right away. One of my friends is Muslim so she double-checked if all the meat options were halal which they kindly confirmed both over the phone and on the spot - good to note for people with this dietary requirement.

Overall, this is a really authentic Thai restaurant that I would recommend and would love to go back asap.

Downstairs seating. Authentic Tai restaurant. Starters are circa £7 a dish and mains where you choose the meat to go with your stir fry ingredients is £9 a dish. Tap water is on the table when you arrive but there is a £3 a person BYOB policy in place. There are a few newsagents nearby to pick up booze as a few dishes are listed as spicey so it could come in handy. Service is friendly and fairly quick but payment was haphazard. Dish was served looking wittingly watery but the juices were sucked up by the rice and the meal tasted very decent and was filling. For the price it was a very decent meal.
