I went for dinner with my husband tonite, and it was simply delicious. I was looking for an interesting night out uptown. After drinks at the Oxo Tower, we walked along the Southbank up to Covent Garden. I found this restaurant through Square Meal; whose reviews I find to be the most accurate. As someone who has never been to Thailand, I find the timeout review a bit over the top. I wanted a nice interesting, memorable evening, and this exceeded my expectations.
The restaurant is in a very smart part of town, the staff were very welcoming to us and we were seated quickly. You can check their website for the menu, we had starters of calamari and satay chicken, and mains – beef salad and prawn tempura. The food was served very quickly, and the flavours were bursting with life and layers of different flavours. Satay chicken had hints of coconut, the tempura batter on the fish was melt in the mouth; light and crispy. And my beef salad was an experience – chilli, lime juice, coriander, med/rare melting beef and crisp salad leaves. Amazing! Unfortunately we didn't have time for dessert, but the next time I go back, I will be having the banana fritters with sesame seeds. A very enjoyable night, 2 people 2 courses plus drinks £30.
I really enjoyed the decor and the table settings, however my one suggestion is to get a table with the padded chairs. I had a very numb bum, after sitting on a wooden stool for 45mins.
