Top 10 things to know about Nipa Thai restaurant:

1) My guest for the review of Nipa Thai was my father-in-law, on holiday from Brazil, so the evening had to be a total success – if not for the good of the restaurant’s reputation, then for the good of my own.

2) I had recently whisked his daughter away from the sunny climes of São Paulo to the damp, freezing British midwinter, so the onus fell on Nipa Thai to show him that she would be compensated for this brutal culture shock with endless luxury and material delights. That the restaurant overlooked Hyde Park from the first floor of the four-star Lancaster London hotel certainly worked to my advantage.

3) The all-teak interior and tasteful décor, incorporating authentic Thai artefacts and trinkets, helped to create a pleasant and highly sophisticated vibe, which I naturally hoped would accentuate my own winning personality and charm.

4) Subtle classical music and excellent service added to the overall atmosphere, even though the latter was a little overbearing at times.

5) It was essential to my cause to portray London as an interesting, multicultural hotspot; and while that’s quite hard to sum up with one meal in a hotel restaurant, the award-winning Thai cuisine on show proved to be a definite feather in my cap.

6) Nutrition was at stake too – I needed to show that my wife wouldn’t be going from her mother’s home cooking straight to baked beans on toast every night. She would, as the evening helpfully demonstrated, have access to fitful portions of sweet & sour chicken, prawn dumplings and Khang Massaman Kae lamb curry; once a fortnight at least.

7) Fortunately there was also plenty of reasonably-priced social lubricant to hand, including a superb wine list, beers, cocktails and aperitifs.

8) On that note, I am reliably informed that would-be diners at Nipa Thai can get a free glass of fizz if they quote “Luxe” while booking.

9) By the time the quite sensational passion fruit and lemongrass shortbread with chocolate sorbet rolled around, I got the feeling the review was doing the trick. The deep-fried ice cream didn’t hurt either.

10) Overall, the highest praise I can give Nipa Thai is that it proved to be an ideal date venue for winning over a sceptical in-law. And in a surprise twist, the in-law in question - a renowned illustrator in his home country - was moved to draw the proceedings for posterity. Mission accomplished.
