“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”. Tip Tip: “fish sauce chicken wings to die for”.

“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”.

“Having lived in Bangkok for 7 years I am a tough critic of Asian food, but these guys get it right every time!” – Ben Chapman’s “vibey and totally unique” Thai BBQ mecca in Shoreditch delivers “such original, authentic and inventive flavour pairings and deeply satisfying plates of meat and fish” and it “feels buzzing and exciting as soon as you step through the doors”. (The Soho branch closed last year.)

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
