I found the staff to be friendly upon entering and also on the Phone when I made the booking. Now I booked a aromatherapy massage thinking it would be on the massage bed thing as it signaled that on the website but I was taken to a room with just a mat, I did remind the therapist of my chosen treatment but that didn't go very far as her English was very limited. So much to my dismay the treatment proceeded on the mat, it was a full body massage and she did work on many parts of my body considering the treatment was for one hour. I think what upset me the most was at no point did the therapist ask how the pressure was, if it was feeling good etc. The massage was not a bit enjoyable and very painful to be honest. I thought I would be getting an aromatherapy massage as that is what I had booked but it felt like a thai massage, I literally gritted my teeth throughout the whole treatment. I wanted a relaxing massage because I was really stressed but nevertheless my body was stiff and I had knots all over the place due to exercise and strenerous training. The only reason I give it a 3 star is because when I left my body and back actually felt much better, the therapist cracked the hell out of my body and I left feeling quite good body and posture wise. Would I go again? Maybe only if my body was In absolute knots and shambles from training but if you want a relaxing gentle to mid pressure massage I can't recommend this place.

I had high hopes for this place based on their website but unfortunately I was let down. The person giving me the thai massage was not properly trained and without a doubt not certified. It was obvious that she did not know what she was doing, and on top of that she did not really care. I have had many Thai massages in Thailand and elsewhere so it did not take long to realize that this was a scam. A complete waste of time and my back and neck was burning following the visit. The interior of the place is not too great either. The room I was in had water damaged ceiling, no place for putting clothes (I had to put it on the floor), and the massage literally took place on an old carpet floor covered with some towels. Stay away from this place.

I confirm that I do not work at this venue in any capacity, and that I do not have a professional relationship with anybody who works there. This review is an honest account of my personal experience at this venue.

Very warm and friendly staff. The massage itself was excellent - the therapist checked with me beforehand for any problem areas and she sought to knead them out expertly. Really enjoyed it and left feeling blissful

The best Thai massage I had so far. The ambience was also the best I have experienced so far. However, I am not sure I would have had the same treatment, if I had shown them my voucher before the treatment?! When I finished the treatment and handed in my voucher, the receptionist said that they do not accept these anymore and that I have to pay the full price. I enquired as to why this was not explained to me upon booking. She conceded and accepted the voucher reluctantly. I forgot my bangle in the treatment room, when realised rang them the same day but asked to ring in the morning. In the morning, before I could explain, I was told that they throw things out straightaway and she put the phone down. So yeah, terrible this way!!!

For reasons unknown, Pho Thai were unable to offer the treatment that I purchased with them, so Scin Great Portland Street stepped in the save the day.

I received a 1hr full body massage by a lovely lady called Lauren. The pressure and massage technique were execellent and left Scin feeling very very relaxed.

I bought the voucher but later received an email advising that my recently purchased deal of a 60 min Massage at Pho Thai. Unfortunately Pho Thai are now unable to offer this treatment - but not to worry Wahanda offered me an alternative.

I've booked a Thai massage at Pho Thai many months in advance and everyhting worked out very well! The therapist was very experienced and helped me to soothe my tensed shoulders by this deep tissue massage with a combintion of stretching of the limbs. I am very pleased with the experience and would surely recommend this place!

My massage was AMAZING!! I didn't use my voucher because for some reason the offer had been moved to another location, but I was keen to try Pho Thai, so booked a full price treatment, and I am SO pleased that I did. The therapist didn't speak great english, but we worked it out and her hands were like magic! I will definitely be going back!

Really nice place, lovely decor and ambience. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. I had a Thai oil massage which was absolutely wonderful. It was authentic, the perfect pressure with the therapist making sure I felt ok. I felt truly revived and de-stressed after my treatment. I would highly recommend this place without any hesitation.

Absolutely beautiful place to have a massage, and the massage itself was great as well (although I'm not used to the stretching that Thai massage involves!). Only downside is its not near enough to work for me to go more often!

This venue was easy to find, with free parking (on a Sunday) nearby.
We went together as a young couple and we were both placed in a room together.
The therapist was very good. I told her I wanted medium strength for the massage and it was very strong for me, so I can imagine how strong it would be if I had requested strong.
Overall I was very satisfied with this and I left the place feeling de-stressed and relaxed.

The staff were inviting but my therapist didn't care how I felt throughout the session.
At some point she almost broke my finger. >_<
Lack of attention was a bit of disappointing.

The thai massage was authentic and very good indeed and I would definitely go there for a regular massage. The venue was clean and welcoming and the ambience was very relaxing. The masseuse was professional and strong. It was as good as some of the thai massages that I've had in Thailand.

This was a good place and had a good central location. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place had a lovely relaxing atmosphere, just what you'd want from a massage place.

truly a relaxing experience - nice atmosphere, skilled therapist and good value for money. I would have never discovered the massage centre if it wasn't for the wahanda mob deal. Will def come back!
