THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Market Thai Restaurant Review

: Above the permanently hip Market Bar at the heart of Notting Hill, The Market Thai has found a successful formula. The restaurant shares its rather Gothic interior style with the main bar downstairs, and there is no extra Thai paraphernalia to underline the menu. Sturdy tables and dark wooden objects decorate the room. Our three main courses: Pad Thai (prawns and fried noodles with bean curd, ground peanuts and bean sprouts), vegetarian Kaeng Kiew (green curry cooked with coconut milk, herbs and Thai aubergines) and Kai Ma Muang (stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts, fried chilli and spring onion) were good. The prices are generally customer-friendly, with starters from £3.50, soups from £3.25 and main courses from £4.25. The set menu (£13.95), for a minimum of two, includes a starter, soup and a main course with one side dish. A selection of starters for two is £9. The Market one-plate express menu is available noon-3pm (6pm on Sat). It has selected dishes from the main menu for about £5.
