In Khantoke dining, a selection of authentic family favourites is served on a Khantoke platter, where guests sit on the floor and enjoy the meal together.
It’s a unique way of dining that’s perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in Thai culture.
The Nipa Thai Experience
Tucked away inside the luxurious Royal Lancaster London, an independent 5-star hotel overlooking Hyde Park, Nipa Thai is a shining light that has been delighting diners for over two decades.
The restaurant is privately owned by Thai hoteliers, the Sihanatkathakul family, who bought it in 1994.
“Nipa” means shining light in Thai and was originally a wedding anniversary present from Khun Jatuporn Sihanatkathakul to his beloved wife, Khun Nipapat, after whom the restaurant is named.
Nipa Thai is proud to hold the Thai Select Award from the Thai Government for its authenticity.
The all-female and all-Thai kitchen team at Nipa Thai is led by Head Chef Sanguan Parr.
Chef Sanguan’s menus reflect authentic Thai cuisine, renowned for its finesse and delicacy in balancing the five key flavours: sweet, sour, spicy, bitter, and salty.
The experienced restaurant team, led by Restaurant Manager Kaseam Jongpitakrat for over 20 years, is on hand with their knowledge and experience to help diners pick the perfect dishes.
