Thai food done right!
When we opened Twin Boys Thai Restaurant in March 2006, we had one simple aim, to provide good honest Thai food. Our experiences in many UK Thai restaurants led us to believe that there was plenty of room for improvement and we set out to make those improvements. We're happy and humbled to say that many of you have told us that we have done that.

Decor, Size and Style
Romantic, exotic Thai decor. A statue just inside the doorway. And a pot of rose petals floating in water.
Table runners patterned with elephants, the Thai symbol. A painting of elephants.
Little statues everywhere - even on top of the ladies' toilet.
Napkins folded like a dinner jacket. I have this design in books on napkin folding but it takes longer and I've only ever seen it done in five star hotels for grand dinners. I think this is excellent for a local ethnic restaurant.
Menu - you can read it on their website.
I liked the mixed starter which included chicken satay with peanut sauce. This is part of the set menus and a la carte. Also several soups.
The Papaya salad, Som Tum, was very spicy. Pleasant to eat but a few moments later it feels like a sewing machine needle is racing up and down your tongue and the inside of your lips.
Lots of chicken, or seafood. Milder than the salad we'd tried. Beatifully presented with a carrot carved like a rose. The egg fried rice was good.
No sticky mango rice pudding. But a Thai pancake dessert listed on the menu. Not available so we had banana spring rolls.
Lots of those bought-in ice cream sundae type desserts which my companion tuts at 'not Thai at all'. I quite liked the look of coconut ie cream in a coconut shell.
The rose wine was a Thai wine called Monsoon, a little on the dry side, quite acceptable.
Anxious to please. Restaurant small enough for you to go to them if they don't come to you. Very helpful. two girl, a boy and the owner all scurrying about. We got our water on second request.
We asked for lemon grass to be added to a dish. It came up sliced. Not much lemon glass flavour but they'd made the effort.
The meal ended with a Lindt chocolate for each of us.
Obviously the balloons were for Valentine's day. I don't know whether the napkins and chocolates were special.
We phoned and the girl who answered said they were busy and asked if she could ring back. We went through the guessing game with phone numbers - she can't understand us and we can't underderstand her. She's saying tree for three. At least she sounded authentic Thai.
Easy to find, near the corner with the Indian restaurant, next but one from them. Just along south of the Ruislip Manor station under the bridge near the crossroads.
They have two sittings for Valentine's Night. You have to finish the early seating by 8.45 pm. Heart motifs were on the window and
We shared a dessert and went without coffee. Meal for two, including a bottle of wine, under £50 including service on Valentine's night.
They also do lunch specials from £5.
