Square Meal Review of Kaosarn Battersea ?

Family-run Kaosarn has been a hit on Brixton Market thanks to its canteen vibe, punchy Thai food and knockdown prices, but it’s gone slightly upmarket for this second outlet in Battersea. The premises are more spacious than before, with a better kitchen to boot – allowing the chefs to add a few new dishes to the menu (look for the deep-fried whole sea bass with red onions and papaya). Otherwise, all the classics are here – from satays, deep-fried chicken wings and tom yum soup to massaman beef curry, hot tiger prawns with bamboo shoots and red chilli paste or grilled half-chicken served with sticky rice and a green papaya salad. Like the Brixton original, this branch also operates a BYO policy, which simply adds to the terrific value of it all.

    THE CULINARY TALES :: Kaosarn, St John

    ‘Why don’t we go to Kaosarn instead?’ The text from wine-botherer Ruth Ford read a year or so ago when I suggested we visit some upstart of a restaurant in Brixton village. ‘I’ve heard not-great things about ___, but Kaosarn will be guaranteed good times.’ We didn’t end up going for some reason or another, but that epithet stuck with me. In my head, Kaosarn became the unfaddy, honest restaurant we all needed round the corner. Oh the excitement, the unfettered joy we felt when we heard that Kaosarn was opening on St John’s Hill in Wandsworth. The lead came from a tweet from Luke Mackay that the much-loved Thai canteen was making its way westward, expanding from its Brixton home closer to my home...
