* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Possibly the most authentic Thai cooking in town” (“fresh”, “fragrant” and focused on fiery, north-eastern-Thai cuisine), plus some “delicious cocktails” have carved a major culinary reputation for this trendy four-year-old, in a converted factory south of Spitalfields Market. Its ratings were dragged down this year though by a few less rapturous reports: “perfectly good, but not the outstanding blow-out we expected from some reviews”.

“Taste explosions abound”“a variety of flavours, with inventiveness and fun as well as staying true to authentic Thai cooking” – at this hip Spitalfields two-year-old, which also features “a spacious bar with very good cocktails”. For many reporters, “it’s simply the best Thai food I’ve had in London” (“Thai food is a favourite of mine, I’ve tried lots of places over the last 36 years, and this beats ’em all!”)

“Your eyes water and it feels like steam is fizzing out of your ears, but with tons of amazing, aromatic flavours that make your taste buds literally zing” at this “terrific” Thai yearling in Spitalfields – “possibly London’s best, with many dishes not often seen outside Thailand”. “Friendly service too” in “a hip East End space” with “a great vibrant buzz”.
