Summary

What Alan Yau did next after Wagamama: these handsome, communal Thai canteens remain an “easy” and “reliable” cheap ’n’ cheerful choice. On the food front, “compromises over the years have resulted in less authenticity”, but they are “approachably priced”.

Summary

“Just that bit more interesting than Wagamama” (same founder) – these highly popular, communal Thai canteens make a “dependable” option, even if their stylish interiors “have greater wow factor than the food”; “favourite dish? – the calamari”.

Summary

“Buzzy”, “friendly” and unusually “stylish” for a chain, these “darkly-lit” communal Thai canteens are a “reliable” standby for a “quick” meal; perhaps the cooking is somewhat “Asian-by-numbers”, but most reporters still find it “yummy” and “reasonably priced”.

Summary

“A lovely relaxed vibe” is created by the dark and “funky” decor at these large-communal-table ‘Thai Wagamamas’ (same creator, but better ratings) – “a great cheap eat”, with dishes offering “lovely vivid flavours”.
