SquareMeal Review of
A handy spot serving “great Thai food” on Walworth Road, this neighbourhood favourite is known for its authentic flavours and down-to earth pricing. The menu covers all bases, taking in a full contingent of satays, soups, grills, stir-fries and curries, but also look out for the list of ‘whole meal dishes’ – perhaps spicy grilled duck salad with sticky rice, crispy fried fish with fiery ‘prik nam pla’ sauce or stir-fried dabu-dabu (chicken or fish marinated in olive oil and cooked with freshly crushed red chillis). Meanwhile, those needing a quick lunch or takeaway should check out Mama’s rice and noodle bowls for around a fiver. The restaurant is unlicensed, but you can BYO – Hardy’s Wines and a local off-licence are just down the road (ask staff for their booze list). Alternatively, pick from Mama’s line-up of exotic juices and mocktails.
