Further Information

Cat’s Cafe Des Artistes on Stroud Green Road in Finsbury Park has a menu that’s sure to give anyone who has visited Thailand a sharp pang of nostalgia for their trip. A small slice of Bangkok in London, they offer a range of set meals that give a flavour of Thai cuisine: mixed platters to start, a range of curries and stir-fries to share and a fruit selection as a palate cleanser at the end.

Thai cuisine is a mish-mash of the ingredients that occur naturally in Southeast Asia. Cat’s Cafe des Artistes on Stroud Green Road offers jungle curries, with fresh vegetables inspired by those found in Thailand’s interior, alongside seafood specialities that take advantage of the long coastline. London has many Thai restaurants, but few offer such an authentic taste of the homeland like Cat’s Cafe des Artistes in Finsbury Park. Don’t just take our word for it – book a table now and find out what the fuss is about.

I booked Cats for my birthday meal with 5 others and was very happy that I did. Everyone found something they wanted on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The ambience was great as always and the service fine.

One of the best green curries I've had in years! All the food was great, staff really friendly, imaginative & atmospheric décor. Will definitely go back when I'm next in London!

The food and service was excellent as usual and, as usual, we ate far too much! The Volcano Chicken was flame lit on the table and never fails to amaze all diners. The cocktails are fantastic and I highly recommend any of the curries with Coconut Rice. Price wise it's reasonable for a dinner at around £25 a head (without alcohol). The ambiance is very authentic Thai with traditional music playing in the background, just loud enough to hear but not overbearing so that you can still have a conversation. We went late on a Sunday evening and there were only ourselves and 2 other parties eating in so we got lots of attention. However, there was lots of activity with take-aways proving how popular the food is.

The service was excellent and the food was out of this world, love the real homely feel to the place and the quirky decoration. Prices were perfect and we were even sat next to a big warm fire, LOVED IT! We shall return

The restaurant had a pleasant feel to it and the service was speedy. I ordered fish cakes for a starter but unfortunately they did not taste as the freshly made one. My main course was a prawn curry and was tasty though little runny. Overall, it was good experience when you want to go locally and we will return.

Food great, service polite when ordering food, no checking on table after that to see if everyone was ok or if they needed anything. Restaurant still a place you can have a conversation and no time limit to how long you can stay. Venue local to Finsbury Pk Tube and plenty of buses.

We love this place - great food and great atmosphere. The service is a little incompetent (for want of a better word) but it doesn't detract from the overall experience too much.

Great food, although when it got busy it was a bit chaotic and we had things arrive that we didn't order. Staff very helpful and the birthday song was brilliant!

The atmosphere is great! Tons of character. The staff was also very friendly, and the food was delicious. Only problem was that we waited almost an hour for our entrees after we finished our appetizers.

We found the food to be rather bland and a bit greasy. We had booked a table days in advance but they still gave us a horrible table next to the bar station. On the whole it was OK but we were expecting a little more.

We found this to be a fairly mediocre but acceptable Thai restaurant. We weren't very impressed with the dishes we ordered, but the proportions were reasonable, and the service was fine.

I had stated the reservation was for a birthday yet this was forgotten. Food & service were ok. Nice place, decent food but nothing all too special

The worst experience I have had here in 15 years. Won't be going back in a hurry. Abysmal service. The only saving grace... The food was good.
