Squaremeal Review of Kaosarn Battersea ?

Family-run Kaosarn has been a hit on Brixton Market thanks to its lively canteen vibe, punchy “home-cooked” Thai food and knockdown prices, but it’s gone slightly upmarket for this second outlet in Battersea. The “beautifully lit” premises are more spacious than before, with a “lovely host” and some new dishes on the menu (look for the deep-fried whole sea bass with spicy green mango salad and ground peanuts). Otherwise, all the favourites are here – from satays, crispy soft-shell crab and tom yum soup to green curries, stir-fried beef with chilli and basil (topped with a fried egg) or Bangkok-style kuay tiew noodles in soup. Like the Brixton original, this branch is BYOB – a policy that gets a huge thumbs-up and adds to the terrific value of it all. Despite “borderline terrible service”, one local insists she’ll be “going back regularly forever”.

Delicious food, possibly the worst service ever - and I'll be going back regularly forever...

I've been to Kaosarn a few times now. The fact is you have to book at least a week in advance for a reason - and it's because the food is so good. I don't see how anyone can argue with that. It's delicious home cooked Thai food. Yes, the service is borderline terrible - it's hurried and the staff can make you feel like you're a burden but frankly I've just learnt to roll with it. I wouldn't go there for a special occasion or if I wanted a nice evening where the meal...

thoroughly disappointed in every way… the staff were the rudest ive ever experienced, they hurried us every step of the way of our meal, until they eventually told us explicitly to leave before we'd even finished our desert, the food was very poor, basic low end thai takeaway, flavourless… generally a terrible, night ruining experience, dont waste your time here, they dont deserve your money or company
