With branches in Westfield Stratford, Spitalfields and Soho, this mini-chain of fairly priced Thai restaurants has become a favourite with tourists, shoppers and young groups looking for a quick bite and friendly service. The latest branch, hard by Carnaby Street, has a quirky, modern feel, with 3D-effect flooring, pale-wood tables and pillar-box red stools, plus lamps spelling out the restaurant’s name in the main dining room. Staples such as meaty fishcakes or som tam (green papaya salad) pack an authentic chilli punch, although the standout dish is juicy lamb cutlets in a mild yellow curry enriched with coconut. Elsewhere, 15 additional specials indicate that this site is the flagship – try the crisp-coated squid curls or melt-in-the-mouth morsels of venison in a fragrant pepper sauce. Desserts are notable by their absence, but portions are generous – so an aromatic jasmine tea should suffice.
