“Thailand meets Shoreditch” at Ben Chapman’s “still exciting” BBQ, with its “deliciously different”, “confident and bold spicing” creating “amazingly flavoursome food”. If there’s a downside, it’s “cramped” tables and that it becomes “understandably noisy”, but regulars “love eating here whether solo or with friends”.

“Just superb flavours… and those chicken wings are to die for!” – Ben Chapman’s “sensational” Thai has it all: “the Shoreditch location, the vibe, and the plates of fresh and inventive dishes”. It “can be cramped” but folks “travel across town just to eat here”.

“If you don’t like chilli, this place is not for you!” – Ben Chapman’s well-known “mecca for spice and heat” in Shoreditch has won a major name for its “brilliant, sharp and exotic (‘real’) Thai dishes”, particularly amongst local hipsters, and it’s a “fun” place too with “friendly and accurate service”.

“Better Thai food than Thailand!” – Ben Chapman’s hip Shoreditch BBQ goes from strength to strength, with its “perfect and spicy” dishes; and a “slightly haphazard, rock ’n’ roll atmosphere when it’s busy” (i.e. mostly). “It’s a perfect place to celebrate with friends, as the food’s handy for sharing, staff are super friendly and there are great local craft beers on tap”. Top Menu Tip – “Sometimes the chilli can be a bit heavy handed, but those crunchy, fish sauce chicken wings are like catnip: utterly addictive”.
