This is one of those that you can’t book for in advance, you have to leave your name and number and they text you when your table is ready. I’m always happy doing this as it means you can go and have a few drinks beforehand!
At no.5 in the Time Out’s top 100 restaurants in London, this certainly isn’t one to be missed. I have found it hard to find any Thai restaurant in London which really stands out from the rest. All the Thai Green, Red, Jungle, Yellow and Massaman curry’s start to merge in to one and none have made me want to rush back or recommend it to a friend…… until this one.
There is seating around the bar and kitchen on the top floor (wear a t-shirt or something very light as you will get super hot – there are real kilns which the chefs cook on!) and a few proper tables downstairs but the seating at the top is by far the vibiest and most fun place to sit.
We shared the langoustines with kaffir lime & sweet mint, clay pot baked glass noodles with crab meat & Tamworth belly (pork), stir fried cornish greens & soy and a hake sour tumeric curry. The langoustines were served with caviar which was a nice surprise, and the mint and lime create a subtle but vibrant flavour. The hake curry was amazing but not for anyone who struggles with spice!
I would definitely recommend a visit here and will be planning my return back very soon!
